Kia Seltos, Sonet Automatic Variants Discontinued – ZigWheels

Kia has trimmed down the variants of the Sonet as well as the Seltos. The cut, which has only affected the automatic variants, does not affect the overall price of the two SUVs. The Sonet sees the removal of two variants, whereas the Seltos misses out on just one.

The Sonet is available in six variants under the GT Line and Tech/HT Line. These include HTE, HTK, HTK+, HTX, HTX+, and GTX+. From the three powertrains on offer, only the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine-powered Sonet feature automatic variants. The mid-spec HTK+ automatic variants, which saw a 7-speed DCT paired with the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 6-speed automatic gearbox mated to the 1.5-litre diesel engine, have been axed.

Customers now have to shell out Rs 2.4 lakh more for the sole turbo-petrol DCT variant, the GTX+. With the axing of the HTK+ automatic option, the GTX+ is the only diesel variant to offer an automatic option. This means customers will now have to pay extra for the same powertrain, as the GTX+ AT costs Rs 2.5 lakh more than the HTK+ AT variant.

Kia’s debut model in India, the Seltos, is offered in two trims, GT Line and HT Line, and seven variants: HTE, HTK, HTK+, HTX, HTX+, GTX, and GTX+. Powertrain options comprise 1.4-litre turbo-petrol, 1.5-litre diesel, and 1.5-litre petrol. The Seltos sees the removal of the HT Line’s top-spec HTX+ automatic diesel variant.

This means the Seltos now has only two variants with the diesel-automatic powertrain: the HTK+ AT and the GTX+ AT. The GTX+ AT costs Rs 86,000 more than the axed HTX+ AT variant, whereas the HTK+ AT is cheaper than the HTX+ AT by Rs 2.8 lakh.
