Seltos X-Line will have the same set of rivals that include Skoda Kushaq and upcoming MG Astor and Volkswagen Taigun
As part of its second anniversary celebrations, Kia has launched a new top-spec variant for Seltos named X-Line. X-Line is primarily focused on cosmetic enhancements across exteriors and interiors. It is unlikely to get any mechanical updates.
X-Line petrol 7 DCT is priced at Rs 17.79 lakhs and the X-Line diesel 6 AT is priced at Rs 18.1 lakh. In comparison, the current Seltos diesel AT top variant costs Rs 17.86 lakh while the petrol Seltos DCT top variant costs Rs 17.65 lakhs. All prices are ex-sh.
Kia Seltos X-Line styling updates
Seltos X-Line is being offered in a new Matte Graphite colour shade. It enhances the SUVs road presence and gives it a brooding character. The matte effect also comes across as quite unique, as most SUVs utilize glossy paint.
Even standard Seltos variants have glossy paint. While glossy colours have their own appeal, being exciting and zesty, the matte graphite shade of X-Line looks more powerful and rugged. This new matte graphite shade will be hard to miss on the streets.
Making Seltos X-Line even better looking are other updates such as piano black front skid plate with Sun Orange accents and piano black accent for the ice-cube shaped LED fog lamps. The side profile comes with piano black ORVMs. Sun Orange accents can be seen on side door garnish and centre wheel cap.
Seltos X-Line will be equipped with larger 18-inch alloy wheels, as compared to 16 / 17 inch alloy wheels of standard variants. X-Line gets crystal-cut matte graphite alloys, which have a different design as compared to that of standard variants.
At the rear, Seltos X-Line gets ‘X-Line’ badging. Piano black accent can be seen on shark fin antenna, dual muffler, and rear skid plate. Just like the front, rear skid plates have Sun Orange accents. On the inside, Seltos X-Line utilizes a dual-tone colour theme. It gets Indigo Pera leatherette seats with honeycomb pattern and grey stitching. Door panels have a similar look and feel.
