Behind the signature "Tiger Nose" grille hides a 1.4-litre direct-injected turbocharged engine producing 140PS at 6,000rpm and 242Nm of torque from 1,500 to 3,200rpm.

Power will be managed by a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission for what should be most likely the front wheels although an all-wheel-drive system could find its way in there.

Some of the accoutrements to accompany the Seltos come launch day should see it sport LEDs for the front and rear as well as 18-inch alloys to name a few.

Inside, the cabin should feature leather upholstery with red stitching as seen during the show well as a large free-standing touchscreen infotainment unit that "extends" from the semi-digital instrument cluster via piano black plastic cladding and interchangeable driving modes to suit its driver's whims.

For safety, it should arrive with six airbags, anti-lock braking system, traction control, brake assist, hill-start assist and parking sensors for the front and rear among others.
