The 1.0-litre T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine is expected to be only offered with the Kia Sonet GT Line trim

Engine Specifications:

While Kia is yet to confirm the engine options for the GT Line trim, we expect the carmaker only offer the 1.0-litre T-GDi turbocharged petrol engine, with the option of either a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed iMT or the 7-speed DCT automatic transmission. Having said that, the GT Line trim of the Seltos also comes with a diesel automatic option. So, we wouldn't be surprised if Kia decides to go with the same strategy and offer the 1.5-litre oil burners with the new torque converter automatic transmission as part of the GT Line variants.
