The 2020 Kia Seltos 7-seater will be a vehicle that will be launched to get Kia back in competition with the MG Hector. The car will be priced a bit more over the 5-seater. The 7-seater will be a value for money deal which is where the 5 seater lacks. The current 5-seater of Kia Seltos is capable of accommodating a 7 seater version. The car has been recently spotted while being tested. This raises questions when will the vehicle launch? What will be its price? How much will the 7-seater be more over the 5-seater Seltos. To find answers to all of the above questions read the article further.
2020 Kia Seltos 7-Seater Launch
The launch of the Kia Seltos 7 Seater might take place in the month of February. There is a high chance that the vehicle will be shown at the Auto Expo 2020. The launch of this vehicle will be seen as a luring bait for people who want to buy a Kia but also want a 7 seater. The 5-seater seems overpriced but when compared to the 7-seater it will be reasonable enough.
2020 Kia Seltos 7-Seater Price
The 5 seater vehicle will be available from Rs 9 lakhs to Rs 16 lakhs. This price of the vehicle puts in the higher end of the 5 seater SUV. If the Kia Seltos 7 seater is released on the same platform with slight increase in the overhang then the pricing of the 7-seater will be kept on the lower end of the 7 seater segment. This will give Kia an instant boost over the 5 seater model. The Company as a whole is not doing great in front of MG 5 seater which is doing well because of its pricing. In a price-driven market like India having a premium product at the start of the company might be risky and so this decision is taken by Kia to launch a reasonably priced 7 seater on the same vehicle as to the 5-seater, the cost of the 7-seater will be between Rs 11 lakhs to Rs 17 lakhs.
2020 Kia Seltos 7-Seater Engine
The engine on the Kia Seltos 7 seater will remain the same engine as on the 5 seater model. This might not feel short on power as the vehicle already has a powerful engine. For now, it is powered with a BS6-compliant petrol and diesel engines, including a 1.4-litre, T-GDI turbo-petrol engine. The 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines – branded ‘Smartstream’ – will get a 6-speed manual as standard, and automatic options will include a CVT for the petrol, a 6-speed torque converter for the diesel and a 7-speed DCT for the 1.4 turbo-petrol. The Kia Seltos gets three drive modes (Normal, Eco and Sport) and even terrain modes – Wet, Mud, Sand which one can choose from using a rotary knob positioned on the center console.
2020 Kia Seltos 7-Seater Design
Design-wise on the exterior of the vehicle will be increased from the rear. The overhang of the vehicle will be clearly visible. This design of the vehicle will be the same. From the front, the vehicle looks the same and it will look like the Kia Seltos. The rear tail lights of the vehicle have beak-shaped tail lights. The vehicle will get a tiger front grille.
2019 Kia Seltos has all the hallmarks of the latest Kia design language. Dominating the face is the ‘Tiger Nose’ grille which part of Kia’s design language. There are sleek headlamps and silver in color. On to the side, we see the rear sloping roofline, white-colored roof and massive wheels with the multi-spoke alloy wheel design. The appearance is enhanced by the grey cladding that runs all around the base of the Kia SELTOS India as well as over the heavily flared wheel arches. At the rear, it is a mix of elements thanks to the chrome exhaust setup as well as a chrome line that runs across the top section of the body. The chrome also goes through the tail light assembly. To put the design in one word – ‘Aggressive’.
Elements like sleek chrome bar which inserts into the tail lamps and dual exhaust finished in faux silver add to the looks as well. What also builds upon the contemporary looks are in-trend elements like the dual-tone roof, silver roof rails and 17-inch machined alloy wheels.

2020 Kia Seltos 7-Seater Competition
The competition of the vehicle will be the upcoming seven-seaters like the Duster seven-seater and the MG hector seven-seater. If it is put in competition with conventional 7-seaters then it will be seen as a pretty smaller vehicle. The pricing of the vehicle will be set a bit lower than the seven-seater in the market. This will be done to capture the market with an early launch.
