Kia Motors is set to launch its first offering for India, the Kia Seltos SUV, on August 22. Bookings for the Seltos will begin in July. Rivals to the Seltos will be the Hyundai Creta, Tata Harrier, MG Hector, Jeep Compass and a few more.

The Kia Seltos will be available with three engine options - a 1.5 petrol, a 1.4 turbopetrol and a 1.4 diesel.  These will be paired with four transmission options, a CVT, a six-speed auto and a seven-speed DCT. Buyers will be able to choose a transmission tailored to their usage.  Hearteningly for enthusiasts, the Kia Seltos will come with a sporty top-of-the-line GT-Line version. This trim will get unique exterior trim and badging, a special flat-bottom steering wheel, red-accented wheels and calpers, and red-accented interior trim to depict its more aggressive nature. This could pair the turbocharged engine with the DCT.

The upcoming Kia SUV also pairs Terrain and Drive modes with an auto for the first time. The system works with the car's stability control, traction control and brake assist system to optimise grip in mud, wet and sand modes. Further, Eco, Normal and Sport modes are available, which optimize steering and throttle responses. Other notable features are a Bose sound system with mood lighting to suit the audio output, a colour HUD, and an in-cabin air-purifier. This is alongside other notable features like a sunroof, UVO connected car system, ventilated front seats, a 10.25 inch infotainment screen and large 7 inch MID.

The Kia Seltos looks like a promising new entrant into a very competitive segment, given its styling, features and wide range of drivetrain options. We expect Kia to price it between the between Rs 15 to 21 lakh, on road, for it to be a viable option.
