Apart from the interiors features, the Seltos GT-line can be differentiated from the Tech-line through the sporty red strips present on the front bumper, side skirts and the rear bumper. The wheel caps are also finished in red, along with the brake callipers also being in the same red colour.

Thoughts On The Kia Seltos GT-Line Diesel Variant

The Kia Seltos GT-Line is the more sportier and feature-packed variant among the two available on the SUV. Prices for the Kia Seltos diesel GT-line will be similar to its turbo-petrol counterpart. Kia will reveal the official prices of the Seltos at the time of launch. Once introduced in the market, the Seltos will rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Mahindra XUV500, Tata Harrier and the Jeep Compass.
