Kia Seltos GT Line vs HT Tech Line – Exteriors
Now, this may be a drill as there are evident changes but visible only to those who can make it through since both trims offer the same design and silhouette. Like for starters, GT Line gets its ‘GT’ badging on the front grille, bootlid, red brake callipers and red accent on the rear skid plate.
Another point which differs both the trim is the alloy wheels. The Tech line gets grey alloy wheels while the GT line gets chrome shade alloy wheels with a different design. Both alloy wheels are 17-inches.
Knowing the GT Line is performance-oriented, the mid-size SUV gets an all-black colour scheme, red stitching on steering wheel, gear lever and seats. The sporty pedal adds a bit of performance touch too.
Talking about the Tech Line then it sports dual-tone black and beige interiors. The plastic quality and the material used in both the trims are of high quality as the company claims.
The heart of the SUV is totally different from each other and we tell you how. Starting off with the Techline then it sports 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol motor and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine. Both the engine makes 115 bhp but torque figures stick to 144 Nm and 250 Nm respectively. Transmission option includes a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard and for automatics, the petrol receives a CVT gearbox and diesel stick to 6-speed AT.
The GT Line gets the 7-speed DCT transmission which makes a whopping 140 bhp with 242 Nm of peak torque. The 1.4-litre turbo petrol unit also features a six-speed manual gearbox too. The GT trim may also feature the diesel automatic trim and the same is expected to launch after one month.
It is the GT Line trim which receives more features than its counterpart. Like the blind spot mirror system, front parking sensors and several drive modes (reserved only for the automatic transmission).
