As a part of the yearly update, the Kia Seltos has received a new top-of-the-line X-Line trim level in its lineup. Available with both turbo-petrol automatic and diesel automatic powertrains, the prices for the new Kia Seltos X-Line start at Rs. 17.79 lakh.

2021 Kia Seltos X-Line: Pricing and Variants

The new X-Line trim of the Kia Seltos is positioned above the GT-line trim, thus making it the new top-spec trim level. The Kia Seltos X-Line is being offered in only two variants – turbo-petrol automatic and diesel-automatic. While the turbo-petrol automatic variant is priced at Rs 17.79 lakh, the diesel automatic variant will set you back by Rs 18.10 lakh. These prices make the X-Line variant pricier than the erstwhile top-spec GT-Line versions by almost Rs. 15,000-25,000.
