Kia, the country's newest car maker is all set to launch its first product, the Seltos, today. Calling it hotly anticipated would be an understatement, with interest levels in the segment itself at an all time high despite the lull in the industry. If you remember, the Seltos shares its platform, albeit with a stretch in wheelbase, with the ever popular Hyundai Creta.

It also gets an unprecedented option of three BS6-compliant engines and three transmissions - 1.4-litre turbo petrol, or a choice of 1.5-litre petrol and diesel mills. All of which can be had with 6-speed manual gearboxes, or a 7-speed DCT, 6-speed IVT (CVT) and 6-speed automatic respectively. Here's a brief rundown of everything we know about the Seltos so far, in the moments running up to the reveal of the Kia Seltos prices.
