Kia Seltos, unveiled in India on 20th June, and set to be officially launched on 22nd August, will come in with several segment first features. Borrowing its name from the Greek God Celtus, which when combined with the word Speed becomes Seltos, the car is being pitched as a premium compact SUV. It will take on the Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, Tata Harrier in terms of competition.

I am proud of the hard-work and dedication put in by all our team in the development of the Seltos, and that has paid off in the way the car has come about to be. We are confident that the customers will be equally delighted by the specifications combination and our wide-spread network of 265 touchpoints in 160 cities that will instill confidence and recognition of the brand.
