Kia Seltos is the SP2i SUV in production guise
-Global unveil in India on June 20
- Matches the SP2i Signature in terms of exterior design
The production spec Kia SP2i signature has been spotted in production guise as the Seltos, possibly during its TVC/advertisement shoot. The official global reveal will take place in India on June 20 with a launch expected to take place later this year.
The Seltos matches the SP2i in terms of exterior design. Highlights of this conventional shoulder line (as compared to the SP concept) tiger nose grille as well as the design of the alloy wheels. We have looked at the SP2i Signature in detail when it was unveiled earlier this year and you can read about that here.
A brief shot of the interiors reveals a black dashboard with brown inserts in the door with the latter matching the shades showcased on the SP concept at Delhi 2018. Of course, Kia has already released sketches of the cabin. While it is expected to be called the Seltos in European markets, it is likely to get a different name in India, with the strongest rumours being either Tuskor, Trazor or Trailster.
The Seltos (or whatever it is called) will be Kia’s opening batsmen for the Indian car market and will take on the likes of the Renault Duster, Nissan Kicks, Honda BR-V and its own sibling, the Hyundai Creta.
