Kia has hiked the prices for the base petrol variant by Rs 20,000. All other petrol variants has received a uniform hike of Rs 25,000. All diesel variants are now costlier by Rs 50,000.
Kia has made some changes in the 2023 edition of Seltos. The SUV has got an updated engine to comply with BS6 Phase 2 norms and RDE emission regulations. The new regulations are coming into effect from April 1. The carmaker has discontinued the sporty 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine. It is being speculated that Kia may replace the old 1.4-litre turbo petrol with the new 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine that is already available in Kia’s other car like Alcazar and the Caren.
The 2023 Seltos will now be available in a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol and turbo-diesel engines.
The new model will come with idle start-stop feature. The feature increases the fuel efficiency, especially in ‘stop-and-go’ situations.
The petrol unit of the new edition will be available with the 6-speed manual and CVT options. The diesel option will have a new 6-speed iMT gearbox.
Also, in the diesel unit, the 6-speed torque convertor has been continued, while the 6-speed manual has been done away with.
