Kia Seltos X-Line, First Impressions

What’s new in this variant?

The biggest highlight of this special-edition Seltos is that it wears a new matte graphite paint option that’s complemented by several gloss black and orange accents all around. The matte graphite paint is exclusive to the X-Line model. The X-Line is offered in two variants-

  1. The petrol X Line 7DCT trim priced at Rs 17.79 lakh

2. The diesel X Line 6AT variant at Rs 18.10 lakh.

What’s under the Hood?

Kia is offering the 1.4-liter turbo-petrol and the 1.5-liter diesel engines with it, but only with automatic gearbox options.

The 1.4-liter turbo-petrol engine pushes out 140hp and 242Nm of peak torque. Meanwhile, the diesel mill produces 115hp and 250Nm of peak torque. The turbo-petrol engine comes mated to the 7-speed DCT gearbox, while the diesel engine is offered with a 6-speed torque converter automatic.
