2021 Kia Seltos gains a number of new features and of course the brand’s new logo; new variants and transmission are also part of the package

In a recent digital event, Kia Motors India announced to be renamed Kia India, and a number of launch places were put into place. Just as they said, the updated 2021 Kia Seltos and Sonet have gone on sale in the domestic market and the former is priced between Rs. 9.95 lakh and Rs. 17.65 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom).

Moreover, in the early stages of next year, the brand confirmed to enter a new segment and we expect it to be in the seven-seater MPV space as a people mover was caught testing recently. The Seltos and Sonet have become the first Kia models within the domestic range to gain the new logo and a host of new changes accompany it.

The mid-size SUV also has its variants rejigged and new features added as part of the MY2021 revision. The five-seater’s HTX+ 1.5L diesel automatic variant was discontinued already and the iMT HTK+ and the GTX(O) MT have stepped in its place. This meant a new gearbox has been added to the 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine’s lineup, especially in the HTK+ grade.
