Kia Introduces Feature-Packed GTX Trim for Seltos and Sonet SUVs

   Jul 09,2024

Kia Motors has added some zest to its best-selling Seltos and Sonet SUVs by bringing in a mid-range trim, the GTX. This trim focuses on those drivers who want more features and sporty looks at a value price compared to the top-end trim.


GTX Trim Boasts Advanced Features and Sporty Design

The GTX trim fits between the HTX+ and GTX+ trims on the Seltos and Sonet, respectively. It comes with a pack of desirable features: Advanced Driver Assistance Systems to ensure better safety, a 360-degree camera to provide easy parking, and stylish 18-inch alloy wheels. Other features include an electronic parking brake, eliminating human effort, and the rain-sensing wipers, which ensure that you have a clear view in downpours.

The GTX lacks amenities that are premium in the GTX+ trim, though, such as a Bose sound system and air purifier, but it still scores the head-turning GT-Line exterior and interior designs, which make it quite a looker to style-conscious drivers.

Engine Options and New Colour Introduced

Seltos GTX is available in two engine options: one 1.5-litre Turbo Petrol producing 160 hp mated to a Dual Clutch Transmission for power and efficiency, and the other one is a 1.5 L Diesel, producing 115 hp, mated to a Diesel Automatic for a smooth and comfortable ride.

Same goes for the Sonet GTX: either the 120 hp 1.0 L turbo-petrol engine with the DCT for a zesty, fuel-efficient drive, or the 115 hp 1.5 L diesel mated to an AT.

Both the Seltos and Sonet GTX trims get a stylish new color option – Aurora Black Pearl. This new, stylish hue fits naturally with the GTX trim's sporty character. Another important fact is that the X Line offerings for both SUVs can now be had in this new color, which is expanding its color palette beyond the now-discontinued Matte Grey.

Kia Streamlines Diesel Options and Makes Turbo-Petrol More Accessible

There have been slight changes to Kia's overall Seltos and Sonet lineups. It has cut down on the diesel offerings and, consequently, the diesel with MT has been discontinued for both Seltos and Sonet in the diesel HTE and HTK trim.

Now the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol Sonet, for a more engaging driving experience, gets the IMT with HTK trim compared to the regular torque converter automatic. This one's more towards the sporty feel.

This, along with the feature-packed GTX trim, a new color offering, and wider availability of engines, will offer higher options and better value to prospective buyers of the Seltos and Sonet.
