Other Updates

Kia recently discontinued their 1.35L turbo petrol engine and replaced it with the 1.5L turbo petrol unit across all variants. They also made the auto-clutch manual transmission their standard choice of transmission for turbo charged engines. So, the turbo diesel and turbo petrol engines offer ACMT/IMT and automatic transmission options. Along with the update, the cars also got a price hike.

The Seltos is the only car in their lineup, which lost the 1.35L turbo petrol but didn’t get the new 1.5L turbo petrol engine to replace it. We’re expecting the Seltos to get this engine with the mid-life facelift, which is likely to land some time ahead of the 2023 festive season.
