All this hype about a Compact SUV by Kia has finally materialized with the reveal of the name, Kia Seltos. Due to be unveiled later this month, the name Seltos is based on Greek Mythology and the legend of the ‘Celtos’, the son of Hercules. The New compact SUV represents the brave and assertive spirit of Celtos, the ‘S’ in the vehicle’s adapted name implies speed and sportiness.
The New Kia Seltos has been created for the millennial generation, standing apart from its rivals with a combination of sophisticated, sporty design and the space and capabilities of a traditional SUV, all in a compact package.
As previously mentioned, Kia’s new compact SUV offers sophisticated exterior design details, such as its long hood, a strong, character line on the front bumper, and sharp lines pressed into the bodywork. Its robust shoulder line, matched with a glasshouse which tapers towards the rear of the car, as well as a rear bumper with a metallic muffler effect, lends the compact SUV an air of understated sportiness.
Aimed at youthful, tech-savvy buyers, the cabin is characterized by broad, sweeping shapes and highly technical details. Equipped with a range of technologies to maximize convenience, connectivity and ease of use, the bold design of the cabin incorporates a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and Sound Mood Lighting.
Kia Motors is extending its range of SUVs to fulfill the needs of customers in every market, with the new model bringing many of Kia’s strengths, in design, quality and technology, to the compact SUV segment for the first time.
The New Kia Seltos is set to come out in late June, with sales in Korea and other regions to follow in the second half of the year.
