The upcoming Kia Seltos has been successful to garner enough buzz around it thanks to its aggressive design and the multitude of engine-gearbox options it will be offered with, apart from the feature-laden interiors. It was recently unveiled by the Korean manufacturer in India which in fact was a world premiere of the SUV. The Seltos will be launched on the 22nd of August which is when we will learn about its pricing and variant details. A few days back, the dual tone paint version of the Seltos was spied and now, a fresh round of images have surfaced which give a clear view of the Seltos with the dual-tome paint scheme.
These images here, courtesy Team Car Delight, show the full front and back view of the Kia Seltos with a dual-tone paint job. While this particular car here has a white body paint with a contrasting black rooftop and ORVMs, the previous spy shots showed two different paint themes. The white Seltos in the previous images had an orange shade on its roof and ORVMs. Another red Seltos was also spied at the same location but it had black secondary tone as on the one here.
This means that Kia will offer several paint shades with the Seltos along with dual-tone options to choose from. It is possible that the dual tone theme is only available on the higher end variants. The already attractive aesthetics of the Seltos are made even more appealing with this dual tone garnishing. On the interiors front, the Seltos will come loaded to the brim with features along with having a comfortable seating space for 5 adults. The Kia Seltos will also offer a long list of features. Safety-wise, the car will a robust structure with the hot stamping body panels, 6 airbags, ABS, ESC, Hill Assist Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Traction Control, Brake Assist and more.
When launched, the Seltos will become the first car in India to come with three different types of automatic transmission options along with a manual gearbox as standard. The SUV will feature BS6 compliant engines and will have a choice of three engines. There is a 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol that puts out 115 Bhp of power along with 144 Nm of torque. Then there is a diesel engine which is a 1.5-litre turbo motor that churns out 115 Bhp power and 250 Nm of torque. Next is the most powerful engine option which is a 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine with an output of 140 Bhp-244 Nm. All three engines will get 6 speed manual gearboxes as standard. The naturally aspirated petrol will get a CVT automatic option while the diesel engine will get a 6 speed torque converter automatic gearbox option. The turbo petrol motor will get a 7-speed twin clutch automatic gearbox, which will compliment its good power output.
