Kia entered the Indian market with the Seltos last year in August then the brand, as well as the product have been a runaway success. Celebrating the completion of the car’s first year, Kia has introduced the Seltos Anniversary Edition. Based on the HTX variant, the Seltos Anniversary is priced starting Rs 13.75 lakh going up to Rs 14.85 lakh (ex-showroom). The Anniversary Edition with the petrol heart at Rs 13.75 lakh is Rs 41,000 more than the regular HTX. Meanwhile, at Rs 14.85 lakh, the diesel anniversary Edition also demands a similar premium. The Anniversary Edition can also be had with a petrol and CVT combination, and it is priced at Rs 14.75 lakh. Here’s what you get for the Rs 41,000 premium of the Anniversary Edition.
As you’d expect, the Seltos Anniversary Edition shares the same silhouette as the standard trim but it gets a bunch of noticeable changes all around that add to the overall sporty appeal of the car. The Anniversary Edition gets orange accents all around including the fog lamp, exhaust surrounds on the rear bumper, side skirts and centre caps on the alloy wheels. It also gets special anniversary badge on the tailgate. The front bumper has also been redone and now gets a new silver faux skid plate.
