Kia's first SUV for India to be called "Seltos"

Recommended Posts

It's official! The production version of the SP Concept will be named Seltos. In an official statement, Manohar Bhat, head - marketing and sales, Kia Motors India, confirmed the Kia Seltos “very closely” matches the SP Concept. Kia also revealed the Seltos will feature connected car technologies.

Btw, for those interested the name has its roots in Greek mythology - It’s named after Celtus, the son of Hercules, and the ‘S’ in the name stands for ‘speed, sportiness and strength’.

Kia's officially revealed the Seltos! The SUV will get BS6-compliant petrol and diesel engines at launch, including a 1.4-litre, T-GDI turbo-petrol engine. The 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines – branded ‘Smartstream’ – will get a 6-speed manual as standard, and automatic options will include a CVT for the petrol, a 6-speed torque converter for the diesel and a 7-speed DCT for the 1.4 turbo-petrol. It gets three drive modes (Normal, Eco and Sport) and even terrain modes (Wet, Mud and Sand), which one can choose from using a rotary knob positioned on the centre console.
