The Kia Seltos has become a top seller in the mid-size SUV segment. And we have a video to show you that you don't even need a fuel station to top-up your Seltos.
Kia Motors, the sister brand to Hyundai, finally made their much-awaited entrance in the Indian market with their Seltos mid-size SUV which rivals the likes of the MG Hector and Hyundai Creta. Even though it is a very competitive segment, it has managed to sell like hotcakes due to its attractive design, feature-loaded trims, and value-for-money price. It has chalked up over a lakh units being sold under a year and now it is quite a common sight on Indian roads.
In the video that has been uploaded by Arun Panwar over on YouTube, we can see how Bharat Petroleum has offered doorstep fuel services in rural areas. The FuelKart initiative has been started by the oil giant to help people get essential fuel for their vehicles where a fuel station can be far away. Here we see a Kia Seltos getting its tank fuelled up to the brim from bone dry with the help of FuelKart. The Seltos still had 34 kilometres of range even after the fuel dial was lower than empty. The FuelKart arrives and it has a mini fuel pump fitted to the truck that is powered by an inboard generator and gets on with filling up the vehicle. You only get diesel though as it is mainly aimed at farmers, though since this particular Seltos has a diesel engine so it could take advantage of this initiative. It also accepts multiple payment options making the process effortless.
When the Kia Seltos was launched back in August 2019, it came with first-in-class features like HUD, ventilated seats, blind-spot detection camera, and others while the wide dealer and service have ensured that after-sales satisfaction has been high. The Kia Seltos has two main branches of trim levels – Tech Line and GT Line. It is available with 3 engine choices of two petrol and one diesel. The petrol 1.5-litre 4 cylinder produces 113Ps/144Nm of peak power and torque figures and can be paired with a manual or IVT transmission while the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol makes 140PS/242Nm max power and torque which comes mated with a manual or a 7-speed DCT. The 1.5-litre turbo-diesel churns out power and torque figures 113Ps/250Nm respectively and you have the option of either a manual or an auto transmission.
