Kia Seltos variant-wise features revealed

By autoX Editorial | on August 12, 2019

Right from the base HTE/GTE variants, the Kia Seltos comes fairly equipped. The mid-spec version of the SUV has a good amalgamation of necessity and comfort features. The fully loaded trim sports some first-in-class features and tech

Last month we got our hands on a leaked document that revealed the variant-wise features of the Kia Seltos. At the time, we revealed some of the features that the car could possibly come with. This time around we bring you a much more detailed comparison of how the variants are positioned and what kind of features set them apart.

HTE: Kia has smartly equipped even the base HTE trim reasonably well. You can get the HTE with the 1.5-litre petrol option as well as the 1.5-litre diesel. Both these engines come paired with a 6-speed manual. As far as features go, the HTE variant doesn’t get many fancy features, but it does get pretty much all the features you would need in a car in terms of safety and infotainment. 


ABS, EBD, Airbags (driver & passenger)

Projector Headlamps

Skid Plates (front and rear)

Rear Parking Sensors

All power windows

Keyless entry, central locking, steering mounted controls

2-DIN audio system with Bluetooth & Sharkfin Antenna

HTK and HTK+:

Both, the HTK and the HTK+, add more to the base trim. The biggest difference here is the addition of the touchscreen infotainment system, reversing camera and projector fog lamps. The HTK+ variant also comes with 16-inch alloy wheels. Auto cruise control, rear wipe & wash, and the rear defoggers are a few reasons you should consider the HTK+ if you have the budget for it.

HTX and HTX+:

Both these variants continue to be offered with the 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options. Those looking for automatic, the Seltos petrol gets it in the HTX trim while the diesel auto is only available in the HTX+ variant. Of the two, we would definitely put our money on the HTX+ primarily for the Bose speaker system and the ventilated driver seat. Of course, it gets a bunch of other additional features as well. Some of them are mentioned below.
