Facelift for Kia Seltos is Expected to Include a Number of Cosmetic Changes

These spy photos of the updated Seltos confirm that the front and back styling will be tweaked, while the profile appears to be largely unchanged. There are rumors that the Seltos will get a front fascia similar to the Carens sold in the United States and the latest-generation Niro EV that was recently unveiled overseas.

This means that the Seltos facelift will feature revised front and rear bumpers, new headlamps and taillamps, and a new look for Kia’s signature grille, all of which will bring the SUV’s styling in line with Kia’s newer models.

The current Seltos is already well-equipped, with a long list of amenities and conveniences. Kia is expected to redo the upholstery, make cosmetic changes to the dashboard, and upgrade the infotainment system with new features such as a 360-degree camera. The Seltos will also include ADAS features that are expected to be tailored for use in India.

We expect the Seltos facelift to keep the same engine options under the hood, which include a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol, a 1.5-litre NA petrol, and a 1.5-litre diesel. Models sold outside of India may receive mild hybrid technology, which will be available on made-in-India vehicles later.
