The Kia Seltos is available in two trim levels GT Line and Tech Line. This is the GT Line and you can see the 'GT Line' badge up front and then there's red splashed all across the car right from the skid plate to the side claddings
The Kia Seltos comes with the heartbeat LEd DRLs and there are LED headlamps on offer as well
The Kia Seltos is 4315 mm long, 1800 mm wide, 1620 mm high and the wheelbase stands at 2610 mm
The rear of the car looks very urban and the tailgate is proportionately segmented as well, giving almost equal area to the raked windscreen and lower sections. Elements like sleek chrome bar which insets into the tail lamps and dual exhaust finished in faux silver add to the looks as well.
A bit of Creta flavour is also visible in the profile, especially the way the pillars have been designed. However, rising window line and sculpting on the rear haunches are fresh and the Seltos gets a profile of its own.
The cabin of the Seltos looks clean and uncluttered despite there are quite a few number of switches on the central console and enough profile lines across the dash and doors to shape the interiors. You get two colour options for the cabin- all black and black and off-white. The GT Line trim looks particularly sporty with black interiors as the red stitching on the seats and dash further along with the GT Line lettering on the seats contrast well with the black theme.
The Kia Seltos gets a generous 433 litres of boot space while the rear seats have a 60:40 split option
