Delhi - After a prolonged teaser campaign, Kia has finally pulled the covers off its Seltos compact SUV, which looks set to give the Korean carmaker a formidable presence in the compact SUV market, where it will slot beneath the Sportage.
Kia Motors South Africa expects the newcomer to reach local showrooms in the first quarter of 2020 and our vehicles will be sourced from Kia’s brand new factory in Andhra Pradesh, India.
Kia has yet to release pictures of the cabin, although previously posted teaser sketches give us no reason to doubt Kia’s promise of an alluring design and high-quality materials.
Aimed at the millennial generation, the Seltos is packed with gadgets too, available features including a 20.3cm Head-Up Display, an eight-speaker Bose premium audio system and ‘Sound Mood Lighting’. The latter pulses to the beat of the music, its soft light emanating from the panels in the doors, including a unique 3D-patterned surface. The system offers eight customisable colours and six themes.
The central command centre is a 26cm touchscreen infotainment system with advanced split-screen functionality and certain markets get a UVO Connect telematics system that uses a SIM card to provide live data such as traffic info, weather forecasts and points of interest.
