The Seltos was Kia’s first product in India and was a runaway success in the B-SUV space. Since then, we’ve seen rivals like the Hyundai Creta, Skoda Kushaq, and Volkswagen Taigun enter the market, among others. To keep the Seltos’ sales running high, not just in India but also internationally, Kia has given the Seltos its first major facelift. Let’s take a look at what’s new here.

The front end of the facelifted Seltos is rather similar in profile; however, it gets a new grille, a more angular DRL element, and slightly redesigned headlights. There’s also a slightly sharper treatment of the bumper, but the rear gets a more significant update.

At the back, the Seltos gets vertical taillights, which are (almost) connected in the centre, with the Kia badge placed in the middle. These new lights look good and tie in well with larger Kia SUVs sold internationally.

Inside, the Seltos facelift gets a curved housing for the infotainment display and a fully digital instrument cluster. The conventional gear knob is replaced by a rotary gear selector. There’s an electronic parking brake, and the HVAC controls have also been redesigned slightly.

Expect the Seltos facelift to continue with the same engine options as the current Seltos, including the 1.4-litre turbo-petrol unit, 1.5-litre petrol engine, and diesel engine options, while also retaining the plethora of gearbox options currently available.
