New Kia Seltos 2021 pricing and specs detailed: Hot-selling Mitsubishi ASX rival gets dearer once more

The Seltos has had its pricing increased for the third time in five months.

For the third time in five months, Kia Australia has increased the pricing of the hot-selling Seltos small SUV, which launched last October.

All five Seltos variants are now $300 dearer, following a $500 jump and a $200 rise. As a result, the Mitsubishi ASX rival now costs $1000 more than it did upon its release.

As such, the Seltos line-up now starts from $25,990 plus on-road costs for the S FWD and reaches $41,400 for the GT-Line AWD (see full pricing table below).

Speaking to CarsGuide, a Kia Australia spokesperson confirmed no changes have been made to the small SUV’s standard specification, with its price changes “due to a combination of cost of business pricing and exchange-rate variations”.

As before, the Seltos is available in four grades: entry-level S, mid-range Sport and Sport+, and flagship GT-Line.

The S and Sport are motivated by a 110kW/180Nm 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, which is mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) that only sends drive to the front wheels.

This combination is also used in the Sport+, although it can be instead had with a 130kW/265Nm 1.6-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, which is matched to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that sends drive to all four wheels.

Meanwhile, the GT-Line is exclusively offered with the more potent powertrain and grippier drivetrain.
