For Sentosa there are three combinations of gasoline engines and transmissions. The most popular could be the crossover with a 2-liter atmospheric engine and a CVT klinotsepnym Smartstream IVT. The alternative will be version with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that will come paired with a robotized gearbox 7DCT. Later the pipeline will go Seltos with an atmospheric engine capacity of 1.6 liters and 6-speed automatic.
Naturally aspirated engines will be installed not only on all-wheel drive, but front-wheel drive modification. The turbocharged unit is exclusively for vehicles with all-wheel drive system.
Kia Seltos has passed all necessary tests, including in the Russian climate. Tests lasted 4 months, during which the crossover drove 50 thousand km, after which it was disassembled to study wear of parts. All identified deficiencies have been corrected.
Now Kia will send the first cars to dealerships for demonstrations in the showrooms and test drives.
