Kia Seltos Interior Review (Hindi) | IndianAutosBlog

Mechanically, the Seltos remains the same as before. It has three engine options- a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol, a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel, and a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol.  The first one is capable of generating 115 PS and 144 Nm, and comes paired to either a 6-speed manual or a CVT gearbox. The second one can produce 115 PS and 250 Nm, and has two transmission options– a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed auto. The third powerplant option is the most powerful one, with 140 PS and 240 Nm on tap. This motor comes mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT.
