NEW DELHI: Kia has taken the wraps off its new Seltos compact SUV here.

The new model will first be released in India and South Korea. The global launch is slated to be completed by the end of the year.

It is based on the SP Signature concept shown at the Seoul Motor Show in March 2019.

With its long bonnet and strong shoulder line, and its LED headlight that extends across the grille, the Seltos is presented as a relatively robust model.


Inside, the cab includes the Uvo Connect Infotainment system, which can be controlled using a 10.25-inch touchscreen, as well as the Sound Mood Lighting system. Options include an overhead display system displaying driver information such as speed, as well as detailed navigation.

The Seltos will be available in diesel and fuel versions for powers of 136hp to 177hp, with a 6-speed torque converter or a 7-speed DCT respectively. Three drive modes will be available: Normal, Eco (fuel economy) and Sport (for increased terrain feedback).

The Seltos is equipped with six airbags, an Anti-lock Braking System, a traction mode control system, brake assist, hill-start assist, as well as front and back parking sensors.
