Korean automaker Kia has updated the colour palette for the base variant of its flagship SUV, the Seltos, following which, the HTE variant is now available in five new exterior paint schemes. The base variant was previously available in two exterior colour options: Sparkling Silver and Clear White. The fresh Pewter Olive shade, which made its debut with the higher variants when it was first introduced, is also now part of the colour palette of the Seltos HTE. The other colour options are Imperial Blue, Intense Red, Gravity Grey, and Aurora Black Pearl. That said, the HTE variant is still offered only in single-tone options – dual-tone shades start with the higher-spec GTX+ models. Except for the colour palette revision, the Seltos' feature list, specifications, and prices remain unchanged.
