 Seltos is distinguished by an elongated line of the bonnet, noticeable, bright line on the front bumper, clear edges of the body stampings. At the same time, the design of the front part with the usage of the characteristic shape of the radiator closer “tiger smile” got its own characteristics. A clear "shoulder line" and the shape of the glazing surface with an inclination towards the stern give dynamism to the appearance of this compact crossover.

The global engine range includes a gas turbocharged direct-injection petrol power unit, a naturally aspirated gasoline engine, and a direct-injection turbo diesel engine.

In the Russian market, the new compact KIA Seltos crossover will be in 2020. Information about the engine options, transmissions and equipment of new items for our country will be announced soon.

The main competitor among models of other brands may be Hyundai Creta, possibly Renault Kaptur”, - said Mikhail Chaplygin, CEO of Auto-Dealer-SPb.
