Kia Seltos was launched last month on August 22 at the starting price of 9.69 lakh. At launch, it was available with three engine options, namely 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol, 1.5-litre diesel and a 1.5-litre petrol engine, and a wide range of transmission options. After studying customer’s responses, Tata has added two new variants to the GTX+ trim. Two new variants include a new GTX+ petrol variant with 7-speed DCT and new GTX+ 1.5-litre diesel variant with 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. Earlier, GT Line came exclusively with the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine.

At launch, both of these newly-added automatic variants are priced at Rs 16.99 lakh. The closest alternatives for the two new variants are the HTX+ AT and GTX petrol DCT, both of which are priced at Rs 15.99 lakh.
