Kia Motors India has christened its upcoming global compact SUV concept name - Kia SP2i - as Seltos. The company believes that this new Seltos will create a benchmark in the segment with its sophisticated exterior and sporty interiors.
Inspired by the Greek mythology and the legend of ‘Celtos’, the son of Hercules, Kia has chosen the name Seltos. Representing the brave and assertive spirit of Celtos, the ‘S’ in the vehicle’s adapted name implies speed and sportiness.
The Seltos has been created for the millennial generation, standing apart from its rivals with a combination of sophisticated, sporty design and the space and capabilities of a traditional SUV - all in a compact package. It is equipped with a range of technologies to maximize convenience, connectivity and ease of use, the bold design of the cabin incorporates a high-tech 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and Sound Mood Lighting.
Earlier, Kia has released the sketch images Seltos which shows that the exterior design characters like the long hood, sophisticated character line on the front bumper and sharp lines pressed into the bodywork. LED headlamps extended over the radiator grille, three dimension light graphics, rear LED lamps with metallic effect bumper and sharp edge ORVMs brings a sense of luxury and sporty appeal to the car.
The Kia Seltos will be revealed later this month, with sales in Korea and other regions to follow in the second half of 2019.
