Kia Seltos, the company’s first product for India, gets its name from the Greek mythology. Celtus was the son of Hercules, but it is named Seltos with ‘S’ standing for sportiness and speed. Directed at a younger and more adventurous set of buyers in the country, the Kia Seltos, in the mid SUV segment, promises attention to detail and design with capabilities of a traditional SUV, ready to take on the urban jungle.
Kia Seltos interiors have now been leaked, thanks to AutopostKorea. The new leaked interior images confirm interesting new details about the upcoming SUV. Kia Seltos will come with all black interior, leather seats, piano black inserts on the dashboard as well as doors. Leather wrapped seats with independent headrests. Armrest in the front as well as the back.
There are bottle / cup holders too, in the door as well as near the arm rest. The cabin looks pretty spacious with ample legroom at the rear. Passengers at the rear also get AC vents. Another interesting point that can be seen in the new leaked shots of Seltos, is the presence of Bose surround sound music system.
Kia Motors India will be producing the Seltos at the company plant in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. It will be a global product with its world premiere in India on 20th June. Its official launch will take place later this year, around the festive season.
