The Kia Seltos finally made its global debut in India, earlier today. The mid-size SUV will be feature-rich and will come with multiple engine/gearbox combinations. Similar to the Hyundai Venue, it will come with internet connectivity features via UVO connect. It will come in two body-style trims – GT Line and Tech Line. Let us give you a detailed low-down of the Kia Seltos’s design through a complete photo gallery.
Up front, the Seltos gets the signature ‘Tigernose grille’ that comes with a knurling finish, which offers it a butch look. Then there’s a sculpted bumper, a lower placed air dam and plastic cladding with faux skid plates, which adds substance to the fascia.
It features sleek ‘Crown Jewel’ LED headlamps with integrated heartbeat-shape LED daytime running lights that extend towards the centre of the grille. The LED dynamic turn indicators are placed below the headlights, and the SUV also features ‘Ice Cube’ LED fog lamps.
Moving on the sides, the Seltos features a proper two-box design with an upright nose and an active shoulder line. The flared wheel arches get plastic claddings that run towards the rear bumper. There’s a kink of cladding on the doors that add character to the profile. It also features roof rails, which have become a design trait in almost all modern-day SUVs.
Kia Seltos will feature 17-inch crystal cut alloy wheels that pair with 215/55-section tyres on the GT Line. The GT Line also gets red callipers at the front and red finish to the wheel hubs. The Tech Line body style will feature regular 17-inch alloy wheels.
Like the front-end, the rear design is busy as well with multiple cuts and creases. However, it’s far from being an eyesore. In fact, everything comes together rather well. It gets the heartbeat-shape LED tail lamps that are connected by a thick chrome bar. The bumper features black plastic cladding, and there are a twin exhaust-tip design element and faux skid plates.
Now, Kia didn’t officially reveal the interiors of the Seltos. However, we can confirm that it will get an all-black dashboard and a flat-bottom steering wheel. Then, there’s also a floating panel that incorporates the 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment and the instrument cluster with a seven-inch MID.
The GT Line, featured here, gets an all-black cabin with black leather seats. On the other hand, the Tech Line, which is targeted towards the family-oriented buyers, gets beige upholstery for the seats. That said, the sportier 1.4L turbo-petrol model will get contrast red stitching on the steering and seats, and a GT Line badge on the seats.
