GTK+ Auto? Where did that come from? Variant list is indeed confusing and confuses others also.

The difference between GTX Petrol Manual and GTX Petrol Auto be added to GTX+ Petrol Manual to get the approx price of GTX+ Petrol Auto. Another 50K from that price will be the approx price of GTX+ Diesel Auto.

Suggest we read the previous posts a page and two prior.
This 'brochure' is a cut-and-paste job with multiple errors. Already discussed and done with.

Let's not boil up a confusion. None of us correct. Few hours are left for the reveal. My dealer called me for a test drive that is starting from tomorrow whereas I can visit the showroom possibly only on Saturday.
Very interested to see how Kia places this last puzzle piece. Will it fit to make the picture look complete?

Yes, that brochure is not an official one. Let's wait till tomorrow for Kia to officially reveal the variants. My source told me that GTX+ Autos, which will be announced only after a month, could potentially have black colored seats. How lovely that would be! I hope Kia announces the features about GTX+ Auto tomorrow, if not the price. Dont want a situation where I book/take delivery of GTX Auto and come to know later that GTX+ Auto gets full black interiors. Fingers crossed!

Well, all of us are already confused. So this is nothing new

Tomorrow is the D-day and I am already starting to feel excited/nervous. I have zeroed in on a car, after a long search. If the price points are higher than expected, then Jeep Compass would come into the equation for me again

Absolutely in the same boat as you. Though the Compass Sports Plus won't be my pick, since it lacks even the features that my Verna 1.6 SX VTVT offers. If the Seltos pricing disappoints, my backup WAS the Hyundai Venue. I've posted my experience in the Venue thread:

Hoping for an exciting pricing structure.
That said, Kia is still known as the poor man's Hyundai world over; surprised that it is a premium offering here.


Excited nevertheless

The big day we've all been waiting for is finally here! Car launches these days almost feel like the launch event for a new iPhone or something!

Fingers crossed.

Talking about wheels & tires, I found something really odd in the Seltos brochure. I hope its just a typo error.

I have compared the size (radius) difference between the three set of tires below :

Name:  Seltos Tire.png
Views: 10479
Size:  93.9 KB

In my experience this difference is usually upto 5mm (service tire to space saver spare tire). But in Seltos, its much higher.

Is this going to affect the driving with spare tire ? Is is ok for Indian situation (here customers tend to use spare tire for longer duration compared to EU / US / KR / JP) ?. Gurus, please shed light on this.

PS: The radius difference is calculated using data from two tire standards JATMA & ETRTO used industry wide.

Here you go -- prices!

Not sure if this is "Suprise" pricing!! No announcement of GTX+ DCT prices as expected. No mention of variant wise details; waiting for official brochure to come up online

Wonder how the 20-30k difference in petrol and diesel models for HTE & HTK jump to 1 lakh post HTK+!

Prices as expected I guess, not necessarily disruptive when you take Hector into account. And putting all speculations to rest, there is no GTX+ in AT variant. Waiting for the official brochure to come up now to assess the variants exactly.

HTK actually has a 1.2L difference between the 2 fuels. Lets wait for the official brochure to make any sense of the price difference.
