The Kia Seltos grabbed everyone’s attention with its looks and segment-leading features. The Seltos still looks quite contemporary, but Kia is anyhow planning to bring a facelift for this C-segment SUV this year. New, sharper design elements and new features are expected to be added. Some ADAS features are also expected to be on offer in order to take on the competition.
Kia Carens CNG
The Carens has been doing great numbers for Kia thanks to its premium interiors and features. However, Kia is looking to increase the Carens’ value for money quotient by bringing a CNG variant. This CNG setup is expected to come paired to the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine. The car has already been spied with this setup. Maruti Ertiga could have to take a note once Kia Carens CNG launches.
