Here is a brief comparison between Kia Seltos GTX(O) and the upcoming X-Line variants. Now, Kia has become the fastest car manufacturer to reach 3,00,000 sales in our market. The Korean carmaker has achieved this milestone on the back of Seltos and Sonet. Both these SUVs were instantly successful right from the time of launch. Also, the craze for these two SUVs remains today as well which becomes evident when one looks at the monthly sales figures. Now, to freshen up the Seltos, Kia is planning to introduce an X-Line variant. It has announced it through an official video teaser. Here is a quick Kia Seltos X-Line vs GTX(O) comparison.
Kia Seltos X-Line vs GTX(O) – Exteriors Comparison
While the overall dimensions of both these mid-size SUVs will remain identical, there will be key design and styling elements to distinguish the two. For instance, the X-Line variant might come with a more sporty overall appearance. The front grille might be redesigned with X-Line badging, there will be a grey paint scheme with orange inserts at bumpers, fog lamp housing, sporty skid plates, aggressive front end, stylish alloy wheels, body cladding, plenty of bling with generous use of chrome, big Seltos nameplate on the bonnet and much more.
With all these extra styling elements the X-Line variant has more than enough character to make heads turn while being away from the shadow of the regular Seltos even for the uninitiated. These exterior changes will make the Seltos look very sporty and unique.
Kia Seltos X-Line vs GTX(O) – Interiors and Features Comparison
Compared to the exteriors, the interiors of the X-Line will likely be much closer to the regular Seltos GTX(O). But don’t assume that it will be similar just yet. Kia will definitely ensure vivid visual changes to the cabin. This might include things like an all-black interior, sporty red stitching for the upholstery, seatbelts, door panels, etc. Features on the X-Line might include things like a 10.25-inch Digital Touchscreen Infotainment System, Heads-up Display, Electric Sunroof, Blind Spot Monitoring, 360-degree Camera, Flat-Bottom Steering Wheel with Audio and other Controls and much more.
We don’t anticipate any changes to the powertrain for the X-Line variant of the Seltos. The Kia Seltos diesel gets a 1.5-litre oil-burner outputting 115 PS and 250 Nm, while the petrol model is available with a choice of 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol making 115 PS and 144 Nm and a 1.4-litre Turbo petrol with direct injection making 140 PS and 242 Nm. These engines can be had with either a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic, 7-speed DCT or a CVT transmission option. We expect the prices of the Seltos X-Line to be a tad bit higher than the GTX(O) trim.
