Kia had been quite secretive about the interiors of the Seltos until now. Today, announcing bookings open for the Seltos, they have also revealed the interiors.
Kia unveiled their first product for India, the Seltos last month and it was received very well. The styling and wide range of powertrain configurations remained the biggest highlight for the Seltos. At the launch however, Kia didn’t fully reveal the interiors of the Seltos. Now however, Kia has finally revealed the interiors of the India-spec Seltos SUV.
The interior design language of the Seltos is very fresh and unique for the Indian market. The 10.25-inch infotainment screen takes center stage on the dashboard and the same panel is connected to the instrument console. Below, there are the horizontally stacked AC vents. Further down on the center console, there’s a rectangular digital screen for the air-conditioning unit with a single dial on the screen for changing temperature or airflow.
The interiors really seem premium and you can either have it in beige or black color schemes. The dashboard is mostly black but what really lifts up the interiors are the generous use of faux brushed-aluminum trims used on the steering wheel, door pads, air-con vent surrounds and on the center console as well. There’s even a passenger sided grab bar that beautifully flows down from the climate control display unit.
There’s a flat bottomed steering wheel and the instrument cluster has a two-pod layout with a 7-inch screen in between. There’s also a heads up display on a plastic screen behind the steering wheel. As for the features, the Seltos gets Android Auto, Apple Car Play and Kia’s UVO system that has 37 features with 3-years subscription free-of-cost. It also gets ambient lighting, leatherette seats, 2-step reclining rear seats, 60:40 split with adjustable rear centre headrest, ventilated front seats, a driver powered seat, sunshade curtains, high-line tyre pressure and a 400-watt 8 speaker Bose sound system.
Meanwhile, Kia just officially opened bookings for the Seltos SUV today. You can book the car for a token amount of Rs. 25,000. The Kia Seltos is scheduled to launch in India on August 22, 2019 and we are expecting it to be priced very competitively between Rs. 11-17 lakhs, ex-showroom.
