The least costly Seltos, the S, has cloth seats, 8.0-inch touchscreen, 16-inch steel wheels with plastic hubcaps, space-saving spare wheel, one USB socket at the front, manual air-conditioning and the features of every Seltos.
It comes with the 2.0-litre petrol engine with CVT auto as standard.
For extra features, you could spend more on the Seltos Sport which, like the S, comes with the 2.0-litre petrol with front-wheel drive. Inside, you get a bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen, the biggest in the Kia range, satellite navigation, digital radio (DAB+), and an additional USB socket.
The air-conditioning can be set so you have a constant temperature in the cabin, the windows are tinted, and the steering wheel and gear shifter are leather appointed so they feel nicer to touch.
The Sport also has power-folding door mirrors, front fog lights, 17-inch wheels made from lighter and more attractive aluminium alloy, and there is a full-size spare wheel in the boot.
For about $1000 extra, the S and Sport can be equipped with the Safety Pack brings a higher-grade radar and camera-based autonomous emergency braking system with pedestrian and cyclist detection, advanced smart cruise control, driver attention alert+ that also lets you know when a car in front drives off in case you’re distracted, electronic parking brake, and 15-inch rear disc brakes. It also brings electric folding door mirrors to the Seltos S.
The Seltos Sport+ brings the Safety Pack as standard, along with other advanced driver assist features including blind-spot detection, and new rear-cross traffic alert with auto braking. It also gains smart key with push button start that lets you open your Seltos and drive away without getting your keys out of your pocket, smart remote start, heated side mirrors, LED Interior lights, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and front parking sensors.
The Sport+ also has the option to upgrade to the 1.6-litre turbo AWD drivetrain for an additional $3500.
The most expensive Seltos, the GT Line, comes with the 1.6-litre turbo AWD drivetrain along with a host of extras including a sunroof, eight-speaker BOSE premium sound system, interior sound mood lighting that changes with your chosen music, fast wireless phone charger, head-up display, premium (artificial leather) seats, powered 10-way driver’s seat, powered eight-way front passenger seat, heated and ventilated front seats, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The headlights, daytime running lights and front fog-lamps are all longer lasting and LED, and rain-sensing windscreen wipers. Additional safety technology includes safe exit alert that will warn if there is any traffic or bicycles approaching from behind when the Seltos is stationary, and lane following assist that can track vehicles and road markings ahead to keep the car in-lane and a safe distance from any cars in front.
You can get a contrasting Cherry Black roof on a GT Line, though this comes without the sunroof.
