Currently, the clutchless manual transmission is only available in the HTK Plus trim.
According to a type approval document, Kia is likely to offer the clutchless iMT in the HTX variant of the Seltos.
The HTX iMT will be positioned above the HTK Plus iMT trim. Given the popularity of the iMT, customers will now get more features, along with the convenience of a clutchless manual transmission. Some of the features offered in the HTX variant include a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, UVO connect, automatic climate control, cruise control, LED headlights and 17-inch alloy wheels.
The HTX iMT will be offered with a 1.5-litre petrol engine that produces 113 BHP and 144 Nm. The Seltos also comes with a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine producing 138 BHP and 242 Nm paired with either a 6-speed manual or 7-speed DCT and a 1.5-litre diesel that makes 113 BHP and 250 Nm and comes mated to either a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
