Kia Seltos is already one of the best sellers in the Indian market. To be precise, the Korean carmaker has already sold over 1.50 Lakh units of Seltos in India. As per the data, Hyundai Creta is getting a massive response in recent times.

Well, that shows how versatile the current market is. Some call them Korean siblings. For others, they are the perfect rivals to each other. And, just to heat up this rivalry a little more, the carmaker has decided to launch the Seltos Gravity Edition in India.

So what exactly this all-new SUV has to offer? Straightway coming to that.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Kia Seltos Gravity Edition ready to launch in India by the end of April 2021.
  • The all-new variant will be available with multiple cosmetic as well as feature updates.
  • No mechanical changes are expected to be a part of Kia Seltos Gravity Edition.

Kia Seltos Gravity Edition

To begin with, Seltos Gravity Edition is nothing but a sportier variant of the regular Seltos. In terms of looks, the upcoming SUV will get a more aggressive front fascia. As shown in the picture, it will get an aggressive radiator grille along with 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, a sportier skid plate and wing mirrors finished in silver to name a few.

Apart from this, one more prominent change is expected to be a part of the special edition SUV. Ofcourse, it will be the new “KIA” badging that is expected to make its Indian debut.

For your information, this version of Seltos was actually introduced for the Korean market as a model year update. However, now this model will be serving the Indian market as the top-end variant. With these many updates, the Gravity Edition will also give the customer the freedom to choose additional colours that will be offered exclusively on this variant.

Inside the cabin, it remains more or less the same. However, a new grey upholstery will add a more airy feeling inside. Need more air? Well, the carmaker might introduce a panoramic sunroof on the Gravity Edition. However, we have received no confirmation regarding it yet.

Feature-wise, Kia Seltos Gravity Edition will come with a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 7-inch multi-information display, surround sound system by Bose and push start/stop button among others. Mechanically, it will be available with exact same three powertrains on offer.
