However, the GT Line’s top-spec variant will be offered with the 1.5-litre diesel-AT option soon. All three engines are already BS6-compliant. Kia has positioned the GT Line trim as the sportier and more premium variant, with the GTX+ being the true top-spec Seltos in India. As the Seltos is getting popular, its waiting period ranges between a couple of weeks to as much as 4 months in select cities across India. The Seltos goes up against the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks, Maruti S-Cross, Renault Captur and Duster. Due to its premium pricing, it also rivals the Tata Harrier and MG Hector.
