Up and coming automaker Kia Motors, which recently went through a logo rebrand is gearing up to launch the 2021 Seltos, which is the company’s SUV offering in India next month.
This news was confirmed by the manufacturer a few days ago as part of an online event. The South Korean carmaker also passed on some information about its 2022 plans.
Kia also stated that it will launch a new segment car in 2022 in a bid to strengthen its growing market share in the Indian market, usually dominated by Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai.
As for the Seltos itself, the refreshed car has started reaching the dealer stockyards in the country. The new SUV will be able to boast of some new updates like the tweaked Kia badging, a fresh boot lid, steering wheel and hubcaps, all adding the new badge.
Apart from this, the new Seltos will also bring features like an updated infortainment system with AI voice commands for the sunroof, power windows, air purifier and defroster.
Aside from the new Seltos, Kia is also rumoured to introduce a special Gravity Edition of the popular SUV with a refreshed front grille, new 18-inch alloy wheels, and a remodelled skid plate.
The Sonet, which is the company’s smaller SUV is also expected to go through these changes, so as to bring parity to the latest norms in a bid to equalise its entire lineup and bring the fight to the company’s competitors such as Hyundai, Ford and Maruti Suzuki.
