Kia Motors India has finally unveiled its first offering for the country. The Kia Seltos has been a highly awaited offering, ever since it was first showcased as the Kia SP Concept at the 2018 Auto Expo. The compact SUV is a Jeep Compass rival and marks the Korean car maker's entry in the Indian auto sector. Kia has invested over $2 billion in establishing itself in the country and this includes setting up a massive production facility in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh along with a vendor park and and a dealer network that will be operational closer to the car's launch later in the year. We've seen the Kia Seltos in teaser Images and a tonne of spy shots over the past few months and now more details on the all-new offering have been revealed.
