Wondering who is looking at the Seltos with an IVT vs DCT transmissions (turbo model). It seems like several people on Team-BHP (India) are having temperature issues with their DCT's trying to drive in city traffic.

Are you looking to buy (or have bought), the IVT (CVT) transmission or the turbo with the DCT?


I really like the power of the turbo but I also sit in a lot of city traffic where it would probably have heat problems?

Bought the DCT. I live in the south so hopefully temps aren’t a huge thing. There were several tags in the vehicle talking about how DCTs can overheat so they are definitely aware of possible issues.

I have had my seltos for more than 3 weeks (DCT version) and have been monitoring the transmission temp and have not seen any issues so far.

Kona DCT owner since 2018, no issues. We try not to put it in too many situations that are troublesome for DCTs, but we don't baby it either.
