The Seltos X-Line will have the same set of rivals which include the Skoda Kushak and the upcoming MG Astor and Volkswagen Taigun
As part of its second anniversary celebrations, Kia has launched a new top-spec variant for the Seltos called the X-Line. The X-Line primarily focuses on cosmetic enhancements to the exteriors and interiors. It is unlikely to get any mechanical updates.
The X-Line Petrol 7 DCT is priced at Rs 17.79 Lakh 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 lakh. All prices are ex-sh.
Kia Seltos X-Line Style Update
Seltos X-Line is being offered in a new Matte Graphite color shade. This enhances the road presence of the SUV and gives it a suggestive character. The matte effect is also quite unique, as most SUVs use glossy paint.
Even the standard Seltos variant gets glossy paint. While bright colors have their own appeal, being exciting and invigorating, X-Line’s matte graphite shade tends to look overpowering and rugged. This new matte graphite shade will be hard to miss on the roads.
There are other updates to make the Seltos X-line even better such as piano black front skid plate with sun orange accents and piano black accents for the ice-cube-shaped LED fog lamps. Side Profile Piano Black comes with ORVMs. Sun orange accents can be seen on the side door garnish and center wheel cap.
The Seltos X-Line will be equipped with larger 18-inch alloy wheels as compared to the 16/17-inch alloy wheels of the standard variant. The X-Line gets crystal-cut matte graphite alloys, which have a different design than the standard variant.
At the rear, the Seltos X-Line gets ‘X-Line’ badging. Piano Black accents can be seen on the shark fin antennas, dual mufflers and rear skid plate. Like the front, the rear skid plates get a sun orange accent. On the inside, the dual-tone color theme has been used in the Seltos X-Line. It gets indigo para leatherette seats with honeycomb pattern and gray stitching. The look and feel of the door panels are similar.
