Some specs of the Kia Seltos were revealed. According to sources, the Kia Seltos’s length, width and height measure 4,315 mm, 18,000 mm and 1,620 mm, respectively. Compared to the segment-leading Hyundai Creta, the Kia Seltos is actually longer and wider. The wheelbase of the Kia Seltos is also ahead of the Hyundai Creta’s, meaning a more spacious interior room. However, it is not as tall as the Creta. On the lower variants, Kia Seltos is fitted to a set of 16-inch wheels while the top-spec variants will receive larger 17-inch alloy wheels.

To avoid slipping potential customers with preferences for particular powertrain, Kia will provide a wide range of engine options on with their first vehicle ever in India so that all needs will be catered. Kia Seltos will come with two petrols and one diesel. A standard 6-speed manual gearbox will be available across the range. On the other hand, each engine will get a different optional automatic transmission. Recently, the fuel efficiency figures of the powertrains were revealed. If the leaked specs are true, Kia Seltos can be among the class-leading models in terms of fuel economy.
