We take a closer look at the Kia Seltos before its upcoming Malaysian release date.
The all-new Kia Seltos will officially go on sale in the Malaysian market soon...Kia's B-segment SUV contender will go up against the likes of the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Renault Captur, and even the upcoming Proton X50.
Sporting an edgy design, practical, and latest generation 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, the Seltos has much to offer in the ever-competitive SUV segments.
Let's go up close and personal with the Kia Seltos.
The Kia Seltos will be sold here in two variants, the EX and range-topping GT Line you see below.
The GT Line packs additional equipment and aesthetic features for a sportier look. An aggressive front and rear bumper, chrome door handles, 16-inch bi-colour wheels and red accents on the outside.
On the inside, the GT Line features a larger infotainment and instrument cluster screen than the EX and leather upholstery with red stitching.
The Seltos GT Line features a neat logo on the bottom edge of the steering.
There is 433 litres of boot space in the Kia Seltos, comparable to that of the Renault Captur and Mazda-CX-3. The rear-seatbacks are 60/40 split-folding to create more luggage room.
Under the hood is a 1.6-litre MPI naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine that outputs 123 PS and 151 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission.
There's no shortage of elegant design detail on the Kia Seltos.
What do you think of the Kia Seltos, and more importantly, how do you think it would fare against more established rivals such as the Captur and HR-V?
