Kia recently unveiled the 2023 Seltos facelift in India, and the bookings for the updated model will start on July 14.

The Kia Seltos facelift offers a total of six powertrain configurations spread across seven different trims. Seltos facelift will be offered in three distinct trim lines: Tech Line, GT Line, and X-Line. Tech Line consists of five trims: HTE, HTK, HTK+, HTX, and HTX+. GT Line and X-Line each have only one trim. 

Another thing to highlight is Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), a 360-degree camera, and 18-inch wheels are exclusive features available only on the GT Line and X-Line trims. 

The lineup retains the 115hp, 144Nm, 1.5-liter petrol engine and the 116hp, 250Nm, 1.5-liter turbo-diesel engine. The petrol engine is available with a 6-speed manual or a CVT transmission, while the diesel engine comes with a 6-speed intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT) and a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Additionally, there is a new 1.5-liter turbo-petrol engine generating 160hp and 253Nm of torque. This engine is paired with a 6-speed iMT or a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT).

In terms of availability, the 1.5-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine with the manual gearbox is offered on the HTE, HTK, HTK+, and HTX trims. The iMT gearbox is exclusively available on the HTX trim. The 1.5-liter diesel engine, on the other hand, comes with torque converter automatic on HTX, GTX+, and X-Line trims and with iMT gearbox on all Tech Line trims.
