It comes with a seven-inch colour display for the driver, India and segment-first Sound Mood lights and a Smart Pure Air purifier that the company claims to be the world's first. In addition to this, the driver also gets an eight-inch head-up display as well.
The Kia Seltos will be available in two trims - GT line, catering to performance enthusiasts and Tech line that is aimed at families. The Seltos will be BSVI compliant right from its launch.
