Kia is all set to revise its best-seller, the Seltos with some new variants. But few variants are expected to be discontinued. The new addition to the fleet would be an additional gearbox which we have seen in the Hyundai Venue. It’s the intelligent manual transmission or iMT. Yes, you read that right, Kia Seltos is all set to come with the iMT gearbox.
Sources tell that the iMT will be made available only from HTK+ trim. Kia is also going to introduce a new trim called the GTX(o). This is going to be the top-spec variant that offers a panoramic sunroof.
The iMT is offered only in the petrol variant with 1.5L 4 cylinder naturally aspirated engine making 115Bhp and 144Nm of torque. So, the petrol trims get 3 gearbox options – 6-speed manual, CVT and the iMT. This makes a total of 7 different engine and transmission options for the Seltos.
Kia has geared up to introduce the new updates by the end of April 2021. Seltos has been a massive hit in the Indian market. But with such tight competition from the Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, Tata Harrier, Renault Duster, Seltos has been the best seller car every month. The new updates help Kia to jump up the sales figure.
