Kia Seltos Facelift – Teaser Video Details & Other Design Details
The Kia Seltos facelift’s front styling has been partially revealed in the official teaser video, where its bold front end’s silhouette is shown flaunting the newly styled sleek LED DRLs.
The India-spec refreshed Kia Seltos will get a tad different front bumper, meaning body cladding and more body-coloured inserts in its foglamp housings as against the offshore counterpart. The updated Seltos will also get redesigned headlights alongside the attractive new DRLs already mentioned.
The teaser do show off the snazzy powered ORVM of the refreshed SUV, but going by the several earlier spy images, the side profile of the vehicle won’t get any distinctive cosmetic updates worth mentioned, but there will be a set of freshly design alloys. The rear façade of the car will get comprehensive update with a new rear bumper which will be different than the international model. There will some additional styling elements as well depending on the variant. The look will get complete with new vertically stacked taillights.
