In Mexico, the official accessory list of the Kia Seltos now gets the option of a roof sack and roof rack to have added flexibility on the haul. Check out more details of these accessories here.
Kia Seltos carved a success story for the South-Korean brand in the country. Interestingly, the mid-size SUV sells in great numbers in almost every market. Also, the carmaker is ensuring that Seltos costumers do not run out of optional extras while making their purchases. We recently reported that Kia is now offering Starbright Yellow paint scheme with Seltos in the Vietnamese market. However, this time around, Kia has addressed the knack of adventure that Mexicans possess. The South-Korean brand is now offering a hardcore roof rack and roof sack for the Seltos. In the pictures here, it can be seen that the Seltos look rugged with the roof rack and roof sack in place.
The roof rack and the roof sack are a part of the official accessory list and are offered with the base-spec EX trims only, as it misses out on the roof rails. In Mexico, Kia sells the Seltos in a total of 3 trims, namely EX, EX Pack, and GT Line. The Seltos in the pictures wears an orange shade, which Kia calls as Punchy Orange. Apart from this paint scheme, the Seltos is offered with 5 other colour options – Intense Red, Gravity Gray, Iron Gray, Aurora Black Pearl, and Glacier White Pearl. Unlike the India-spec Seltos, it misses out on the dual-tone paint schemes.
Talking of the mechanical specifications, Kia offers 2 engine options with the Seltos in Mexico – 1.6L petrol and 1.4L petrol. The former is a 4-cylinder naturally aspirated unit that develops a peak power output of 121 PS and max torque of 151 Nm. It is offered with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or an IVT. The smaller 1.4L motor, on the other hand, gets a turbocharger to push out 140 PS of peak power and 242 Nm of max torque. It comes mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic only. Prices for the Seltos in Mexico starts at 346,900 Peso (Rs. 11.58 lakh) for the base-spec EX trim and goes up to 443,900 Peso (Rs. 14.82 lakh) for the top-spec GT Line trim.
