Kia Seltos Petrol Vs Diesel — Should You Buy The Kia Seltos Diesel?

If you’re on the fence about deciding if you should buy the Kia Seltos diesel or the petrol, then this next section should help you. The Seltos diesel costs a bit more than the normal petrol and even the turbo petrol variants. You just need to see if you drive enough to recover the extra cost you’re paying upfront for the diesel engine. We’ll use the September 2022 fuel prices in Delhi and the official mileage figures for these calculations.

The HTE diesel only costs Rs. 90,000 more than the petrol model and you can recover this cost in about 56,000km from the better fuel efficiency and lower fuel costs with the diesel engine. If you also factor in the value of the additional performance advantage of the diesel engine, then you stand to recover the remaining price difference in only 6,300km.

With the HTK, HTK Plus and HTX variants, you can recover the Rs. 1.14 lakh cost in about 72,000km. But if you value the performance benefit of the diesel engine, then the effective km-to-breakeven figure boils down to just 21,400km.

The auto-clutch buyers have to pay Rs. 1.24 lakh for the diesel engine over the petrol-ACMT combination. In this case, you recover this upfront cost in 78,000km. If you also put an appropriate price on the performance, then you can are looking at 27,700km to breakeven the higher upfront cost.

The poor fuel efficiency of the diesel-automatic powertrain makes it difficult to justify buying it over the Seltos 1.5L normal petrol with the CVT automatic. While the price gap between these 2 options is at a reasonable Rs. 1.14 lakh, the km-to-breakeven figure stands at 1.46 lakh. So you will have to drive the Sueltos diesel for almost 1.5 lakh kilometres to recover the higher upfront cost over the petrol 1.5L CVT automatic. With the performance taken into account, it drops to a much more reasonable 43,600km.

For buyers considering the Seltos turbo petrol-automatic and turbo diesel-automatic, the Rs. 36,000 should sound like a no-brainer. However, in this case, the km-to-breakeven figure jumps from 40,900 to 48,300km after we include the performance difference between the 2 engines. This is because the turbo petrol engine offers slightly better performance, which you’re not getting with the diesel engine. Moreover, the diesel engine is not efficient enough with the automatic transmission.

Based on these calculations, you can compare your estimated vehicle usage during the ownership and decide if you should buy the Seltos diesel or petrol.

Kia Seltos Diesel HTE - Base Model Price & Features

HTE

The base HTE variant of the Seltos diesel-manual costs Rs. 11.39 lakh (ex-showroom). It offers the following notable features:

  • 6 airbags
  • Music system
  • Steering-mounted controls
  • 16-inch steel wheels with wheel covers
  • Manual AC with rear AC vents
  • All power windows
  • Rear disc brakes
  • Sunglass holder
  • Remote central locking
  • Tilt steering
  • Height-adjustable driver seat
  • Remote central locking
  • Halogen projector headlamps

HTE

The base variant gets most of the must-have features and only misses out on some good-to-have features such as:

  • Touchscreen
  • Rear camera
  • Rear armrest
  • Power mirrors (must-have)
  • Rear parcel tray (must-have)

HTE

For budget buyers, the HTE variant is a good choice. Moreover, it costs only Rs. 90,000 more than the HTE petrol. The higher HTK variant also doesn’t justify the incremental cost over the HTE and offers extremely poor value for money.

Since the Seltos HTK variant doesn’t even come close to justifying the incremental cost over the HTE variant, we won’t suggest upgrading to this variant. You should consider a higher variant if you want more features and better value for money. If you don’t want to spend more money, then you can consider buying the lower variant and adding some accessories.

  • Rear window sunshades
  • Power folding mirrors
  • Rear washer wiper
  • Rear parcel tray
  • LED DRLs

HTK Plus

The HTK Plus diesel with the auto-clutch costs Rs. 50,000 more than the manual. Besides the convenience of not having to deal with modulating the clutch pedal, it also offers features like:

  • LED cabin lights
  • Sunroof
  • Auto AC
  • Beige fabric seats

Because of these additional features, the HTK Plus ACMT manages to offer far better value than any of the Seltos diesel variants. The HTK Plus variant with the ACMT has a nice balance of good-to-have and must-have features along and it also offers fantastic value for money. This is our top recommendation for Seltos diesel buyers. We strongly recommend stretching your budget to buy the HTK Plus ACMT even if you’re on a tight budget. The features, which are available in the high variants and you might miss in HTK Plus ACMT are:

  • 60-40 split-folding rear seatbacks

  • 8-way power driver seat
  • Bose sound system
  • Ventilated front seats
  • 7-inch full-colour LCD instrument cluster

The HTX Plus variant also offers a similar value for money as the HTX variant. Considering the additional features they offer, both of them justify about 80% of the incremental cost over the base variant. It’s certainly worth a look if you are interested in some upmarket features and you’re okay with compromising a bit on the value. Although, it’s worth noting that the lower HTX automatic and GTX Plus automatic offer better value for money.

Which Variant Of The Kia Seltos Diesel Should You Buy?

The HTK Plus variant with the auto-clutch automatic transmission is our top recommendation for all Kia Seltos buyers. It offers the best value for money and has a nice balance of good-to-have and must-have features. If you can’t afford this variant, then you should buy the base HTE variant and get some aftermarket accessories.

The HTK and HTK Plus variants with manual transmission offer very poor value for money. Therefore, these are not recommended. The HTX and HTX Plus offer about the same value. Between these 2, we’ll suggest choosing the HTX Plus as it has more features with high emotional value and it’ll offer a better ownership experience.

Even the X Line variant offers enough features to more than justify the Rs. 30,000 gap over the GTX Plus. However, it’s a completely cosmetic upgrade.

What Are The Engine Specifications Of The Kia Seltos Diesel?

If you’re interested in a C-segment diesel SUV, then your choices are limited to Seltos and Creta. Since they both use the same engine and platform, there’s no difference in performance either. The 115PS power output and 250Nm of torque are also good for this class.

Both of these cars offer a decent mileage figure with the manual transmission. The fluid coupling in the torque converter automatic has a noticeable impact on the fuel efficiency figures as it plunges to around 18kmpl.

What Are The Dimensions Of The Kia Seltos?

In terms of dimensions too, both the cars are neck and neck. The Seltos is just a bit longer, wider and taller than the Creta. For the Seltos, the only significant advantage in this area is that it has the 18-inch wheel option in the top-spec X Line variant. While it looks good on the car, you should know that it will have an adverse impact on the car’s performance, drivability and fuel efficiency.
