Automakers aren’t forsaking the little, spending plan inviting vehicle portion; they’re basically putting their least expensive models on stilts and subsequently making them somewhat progressively costly. Kia pursued the way burst by sister organization Hyundai when it uncovered a model named Seltos that openings at the extremely base of its hybrid and SUV lineup. The model made its official introduction in India, and it’s expected out all around before the finish of 2019.
Kia clarified it structured the Seltos for youthful, well-informed purchasers. It wears a tough looking front end described by a tall, upstanding grille flanked by slim lights that stretch into the hood. It shares a bunch of key styling prompts with existing individuals from the Kia portfolio without totally copying another vehicle. It is anything but a greater Soul or a Telluride that shrank in the clothes washer.
The Seltos is generally little and shabby, yet it’s not simple. Because it’s straightforwardly gone for twenty to thirty-year-olds, it offers an extensive rundown of standard and discretionary tech highlights including a 10.25-inch touchscreen with a split-screen work for the infotainment framework, a head-up showcase, just as a component Kia calls Sound Mood lighting. It’s a surrounding lighting framework that transforms the lodge into a dance club on wheels — short the beefy security protects and the overrated beverages by beating to the beat of the music playing from the sound system. The travelers have eight lighting hues and six topics to look over.
At the point when the gathering is finished, the UVO app lets users remotely get to data about the Seltos (like demonstrative information), and about the treks they’ve taken as of late. It’s perfect with Apple and Android devices.
Drivers will probably require a web-connected infotainment framework to disclose the name Seltos to their travelers. It follows its roots to Greece — Celtos is the child of Hercules in Greek folklore. Kia supplanted the c with an s to underline the hybrid’s speed and energy, however, there’s little sign the Seltos will be a genuine elite machine — it won’t clash with a Porsche Cayenne Coupe, yet we’re trusting it will be more unique to drive than different autos in its focused set.

Kia hasn’t distributed data about the American-spec Seltos; we don’t know if the model is going to the United States. All inclusive, it will be accessible with a turbocharged, 1.6-liter four-chamber appraised at 177 pull, a normally suctioned, 2.0-liter with 149 hp on tap, and a 136-hp, 1.6-liter turbodiesel. Each of the three motors will shift through a programmed transmission, yet Kia hasn’t uncovered whether the Seltos will be front-wheel drive-just, or if a few variations will be accessible with all-wheel drive.
Kia will make the Seltos in India and in its nation of origin of South Korea. The organization unmistakably considered the Seltos a worldwide model, yet it hasn’t affirmed intends to sell it in the United States yet. We wouldn’t be shocked to see it touch base in American showrooms in time for the 2020 model year, notwithstanding. We’ve contacted the organization for clarification, and we’ll update this story if we hear back.
