Catch the glimpse of changes that Kia Seltos HTK+ variant gets with the update in a detailed video here.
Kia Seltos is one of the best-selling C-segment SUV in India. It helped Kia in carving a niche for them in the Indian market. The Seltos is highly loved by the Indian audience for its typical SUV design elements. Also, helping the Seltos gain such a momentum in on the sales chart were the engine-gearbox configurations and trim levels it offered to the buyers. However, now in 2020, Kia has updated the Seltos with some more features to cater to the customer demands. It seems that Kia has now got the fact right, as the carmaker is now offering sunroof in HTX and GTX variants as well. Earlier, it was available in the top-spec HTX+ and GTX+ trims only.
The deliveries of the updated Seltos have already begun. Also, here’s a video we came across on YouTube, which showcases the updated HTK+ variant in detail. The video was uploaded on YouTube by Power Racer. In the video, the host starts by explaining the features that are updated across the range. The Seltos now gets an emergency brake signal, remote start for AT variants, and a USB port on the front row as standard addition on all trim levels.
Moving over to the HTK+ trim, it now gets the convenience of voice commands. To use this feature, it now gets a button mounted on the steering wheel itself. While the HTK+ variant continues with plastic scuff plate, the HTX variant now gets metal scuff plates. Also, the HTK+ variant continues with a leather-wrapped gear knob, which is a new addition to the lower-spec HTK trim. However, the biggest change on the HTK+ variant with the update is the new printed trim on the dashboard, which wasn’t a case earlier.
In MY2019 Seltos, the HTK+ variant featured the same dull-finished centre element on the dashboard as the entry-level HTE or HTK trims. However, it now gets the same effect as the higher variants. On the outside, the HTK+ variant now gets dual-muffler design for the rear skid plate, which is the only change on the outside. Also, Kia has now discontinued the HTK+ equivalent GTK+ trim, which came with the powerful 140 PS 1.4L turbo-petrol engine.
