Incidentally, the price reduction move comes within a month of Kia hiking the car’s rates by up to 30,000.

Price cut, and variants impacted

The manufacturer has given Seltos a price drop of up to 2000. The variants on which the reduction will apply are the manual and iMT versions of the HTX and HTX Plus trims that use petrol and diesel; the cuts also apply to both the DCT and automatic versions of the GTX trim offered with turbocharged petrol and diesel units.

The rates of the X-Line variants, on the other hand, remain unchanged.

Prices post revision

Now, the HTX variants will have a starting rate of 15.18 lakh (ex-showroom), while the new starting price for the GTX Plus variants is 19.38 lakh (ex-showroom).

Which feature has been removed?

Each variant offered with one-touch rolling down of windows, will now have the feature available only on the window on the driver’s side. The X-Line trim, however, will continue to get the one-touch feature on all the windows.

Kia Seltos: Powertrain

Seltos comes with as many as three engine options, including the 1.5-litre turbo petrol unit in the car’s 2023 version. The engine generates 158 bhp of maximum power and 253 Nm peak torque.

The other two engines – both 1.5-litre – are a naturally aspirated petrol unit, and a diesel unit, each with 115 bhp of maximum power. The peak torque output, meanwhile, is 44 Nm and 250 Nm, respectively.
