Kia Seltos X-Line (Project X): How is it different from regular Seltos
The Seltos X-Line concept car exhibited at Delhi NCR last year has adopted a special style treatment to distinguish it from the standard model. The aerated SUV is painted with matte gray paint, and most of the bodywork is painted black, except for the chrome decals on the sideboards. Its grille uses dark chrome trim, the bumper uses bright black trim, and the fog lamp housing uses bronze elements.
The tail has a dark chrome strip between the taillights, bright black and bronze trim on the bumper, and a prominent artificial anti-skid plate. Although the alloy wheel design is borrowed from the standard Seltos GT Line, it has a deeper shadow. However, the basic outline of the SUV remains unchanged.
It is expected that most of these designs will continue into the production specification model.

This is not the first time Kia has used the nickname “X-Line” on the Seltos.At the end of 2019, it revealed X-Line Trail Attack and X-Line Urban concepts based on the US standard Selfos At the Los Angeles Auto Show. These models are equipped with 176 horsepower, 1.6-liter turbo gasoline engine and all-wheel drive (AWD).
However, it is expected that the Seltos X-Line for Indian customers will be launched without any changes under the hood, because the modification of the power system will be very expensive, because India does not have a Kia model to get a larger turbo gasoline or AWD function.
The regular Seltos sold in our market have a range of engine options-115 horsepower, 1.5 liter petrol and 6-speed manual, 6-speed iMT clutchless manual or CVT automatic transmission; 115 horsepower, 1.5 liter diesel engine with 6-speed manual transmission or 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission; paired with 140-horsepower, 1.4-liter turbo gasoline and 6-speed manual or 7-speed DCT automatic transmission. All versions have a standard front-wheel drive configuration. Kia is likely to provide the Seltos X-Line with 1.4 gasoline and 1.5 diesel engines.
