Indians have a special place for SUVs in their heart that is the reason why it is one of the popular segments currently in the market. One of the newest entrant in this segment is Kia Seltos. Seltos was launched earlier this year and has been a huge success for the brand. The waiting periods for Seltos go from 15 days to more than three months depending upon the model you choose. Here, we have video from KKC On A-Motive, who is giving his opinion about the new Kia Seltos. This is not a usual review that we have seen in the past, but a honest ownership review. let us have a look at the video to know more about it
The Seltos used in the video is a 1.4L Turbo Petrol unit GTX+ variant which comes with all the bells and whistles that Seltos has to offer. The 1.4L turbo petrol gets both manual and automatic transmission and in this case owner has opted for 7-Speed DCT. The Seltos has done over 1000 km according to the video. Throughout the video he has a positive impression about the car. There are not a lot of things that are bothering him.
He is happy with the ride quality, driving dynamics, looks, the engine, gearbox everything. He then starts talking about the things that he did not like about the car. He says in sport mode in city traffic conditions the gearbox has a tendency to give bit of a jerk and also discusss the heating issues that has been reported in the past from DCT Seltos.
Next thing that he as a customer was not impressed were the tyres. He said that the tyres are spoiling the ride comfort and handling. He also suggests some better profile tyres for those looking to upgrade tyre size. Then he starts talking about the interiors which is a nice place to be in as it is feature loaded. One thing that he does not like about the interior is the HUD as the driver has to adjust hiss or her driving position to see all the info on that screen.
Another issue that he faces is that the outside RVM controls are not illuminated which makes it difficult during night to make any adjustments. But even with all these small issues he is still very much happy with the car and even says that because of the price bracket there is a Kia Seltos for everyone. Seltos is availaable with a 1.5L petrol, 1.5L diesel and 1.4L turbo petrol and is available with a manual and automatic gearbox.
