2022 Facelifted Kia Seltos- Rivals
Updated Seltos in India is likely to maintain their current selection of petrol and diesel powertrains. However, it will be more capable of competing with new rivals like the Toyota HyRyder and Maruti Grand Vitara. It will be a close race because the HyRyder and Vitara have segment-first strong hybrid powertrains with best-in-class fuel efficiency, whereas the new Seltos have ADAS.
