The craze of SUVs has spread worldwide. SUVs from all segments continue to be the popular choice amongst buyers. This segment has seen a big boom in terms of sales figures not only in India but also overseas. Now, one of the most popular C-segment SUVs is going to get a facelift very soon. The Seltos facelift has been spied testing outside India. We expect that Kia India might launch it globally and bring it to India very soon. In this article, we have listed everything we might expect from the new Kia Seltos facelift.

The Seltos is a sharp, good-looking SUV. It is going to get a facelift very soon. It has already been spotted testing several times. From the leaks, it is clear that it would get a big front grille. The DRLs might be placed above the headlights. The alloys might also be changed for a better look. The new looks of the Seltos will give it a fresh appeal in the market and is expected to be very impressive.

New features

We know that the current generation Seltos is already a feature-loaded car. So, the facelift will get more added features over the current generation. It will continue to get the premium Bose music system with added ambient lights inside. Along with this, the Seltos facelift is also expected to get the ADAS (Advanced Driver Assist System) features, and added features in Kia Connect. With the addition of these features, it would give a strong competition to the MG Astor, the Hyundai Creta, etc. in its segment as well as the Mahindra XUV700 from a segment above.
