KIA entered the market with the Seltos! Yes I'm aware it has been in the market for a bit but that's not going to stop me from talking about it.
The car looks absolutely stunning with its design that is targeted towards the young generation trying to convince their parents why they need the Seltos. The car gets 17 inch Crystal cut alloys which look a bit different but suit the car perfectly. The front end of the vehicle looks aggressive and these lights of the car when you look at them let you know instantly from a distance that it's the Seltos coming towards you. And to bring the Sport in the SUV the car gets RED BRAKE CALIPERS because that is what all sports cars have, and also has other red accents here and there to remind you that this is the GT-Line of the Seltos.
The rear end of the car is on the cleaner side and the taillights are simplistic which in my opinion is the way to go. The boot is 433 litres which is good for all the long drives that you are going to have in this car. The seats also have a 60:40 split just in case 433 litres weren't enough.
The car also gets the UVO app which comes in handy a lot of times. Through the UVO app on your phone, you can track where your car is, how fast it is going, how much range the car has, service history of the vehicle etc. But one of the main features of the app is that you can start the vehicle from your phone. So while sitting at home, you can start the car and set the A/C temperature accordingly so by the time you reach the car, the car is all cooled down and you don't need to sit on the hot seats and keep putting the windows down to let the hot air outside.
The interior is very comfortable and you can spend hours inside the vehicle without hesitation. There is a huge 10.25inch infotainment display which supports Android Auto and Apple Carplay. The inside just feels very premium and is a very comfortable place to be in. Apart from that, you get - Cooled Seats, Metal scuff plates with the Seltos logo, Leather wrapped gear knob, sporty pedals because SPORTS, Ambient mood lighting, BOSE premium 8 speaker system to vibe to music with your friends, a 360degree camera with guidelines, a wireless charger for the millenails with their Iphones, and AIR QUALITY INDEX or AQI which actually tells you how pure the air is inside the car so that you get the best quality of O2 to breathe. There is also an 8-way Driver power seat.
The Seltos has 3 engine options, a 1.4 Turbo Petrol, a 1.5 Petrol and a 1.5 Diesel. While the Petrol gets a DCT gearbox, the Diesel gets only a 6-speed Automatic. the 1.4 Turbo produces 140BHP whereas the 1.5 Diesel makes only 115BHP.
But is the Seltos really the best Mid-Range SUV. Well since Hyundai just launched launched the 2020 Creta, there is a lot of talk going on in the industry about the vehicle. Well, we can't say much about the Creta without seeing it in the flesh. But we can surely say that the Seltos for the money offers a lot of features that many of the competitors do not offer.
