The Kia Seltos will likely get a performance-focused variant


Kia Seltos is set to launch India on August 22nd. So far we have been aware of the fact that Seltos will be available in two variants and three trims each – Tech-Line (HTE, HTK and HTX) and GT-Line (GTE, GTK and GTX). This time around, we learned that Kia could also introduce an excellent performance-oriented option. The company has not yet talked in detail about the sportier version of Seltos and is currently thought to be in the development phase.

Mechanically, the performance-focused Kia Seltos GT will be powered by the existing 1.4-liter turbo-GDi engine from GT-Line. However, it is believed that the Sport Seltos GT will get a more sporty suspension setup with stiffer springs and lower ride height. In addition, the variant is likely to receive a body kit to distinguish it from the regular model. The interior of the car will also receive an additional sport detail compared to the GT-Line variant.

Bookings for Kia Seltos began in mid-July with a turnover of Rs 25,000. Kia will manufacture the vehicle at its Anantapur plant with an annual production capacity of 3 lakh units.
