Kia India recently showcased the Seltos to their dealers. Some photos from the event have leaked, and have been shared online by Youtube channel Adi Zone. These new leaked photos of Seltos not only reveal the interiors of the SUV, but also detail its specs, engine output, dimensions, etc.
Nice clicks - thanks for sharing. White would have looked great with red roof (little out of box as well), orange is not standing out.
Also the vehicle looks quits small in length visually, not sure if there is enough cabin space, else will turn out like ecosport
Glad to see manual switches for controls as well, unlike Hector, which is not making me comfortable to buy alonwith its sizable lag
