The updated 2020 Kia Seltos has started reaching dealerships. Here's the first set of pictures with the changes it now comes with.
Kia has recently updated the variant configuration for the Seltos with slightly more features onboard. It now offers the much-hyped feature in the Indian market – the sunroof, in HTX and GTX variants. Earlier the sunroof was available on the HTX+ and GTX+ trims only. While the Seltos was offered in a total of 18 variants before Kia rolled out the updates, the total count now stands at 16. The carmaker has also started dispatching the updated Seltos to the dealerships across the country. Here is the first set of pictures of the 2020 Kia Seltos from a dealer’s yard. It is the top-spec GTX+ variant of the Seltos.
Kia now offers only 2 variants in the GT Line of the Seltos: GTX and GTX+. From the outside, the only difference between these variants is the badging for automatic and manual transmission. Also, as a part of the updates, these variants do not undergo any change on the outside. However, on the inside, Kia has now added a new sliver finish beneath the climate control panel. Metal scuff plates on the door sills are also a new addition.
The automatic variants of the Seltos also get remote start function via the key fob now. Emergency brake signal and USB charging slot for the first and second row are the common additions across the range. The mid-spec HTK+ trim now gets leatherette finish for the gear knob and a print effect on the dashboard. With the updates, the UVO Connect also gets voice-operated commands, which can be initiated by saying ‘Hello Kia’.
These updates come at a premium. However, Kia has not changed the price for the base variant; it continues to start at Rs. 9.89 lakh. The HTX and GTX trim with sunroof are now dearer by Rs. 30,000 and Rs. 20,000, respectively. The HTK and HTK+ trims with diesel engine are now expensive by Rs. 15,000. On the other hand, petrol-powered HTK and HTK+ variants see a price hike of Rs. 20,000 and Rs. 10,000, respectively.
