The Seltos has the radical design language we are now getting used to in all modern Kia’s. The tiger grille which is symbolic to the brand is ever-present. The looks of the Seltos will make you think its a serious offroader but it’s not. Like all its rivals its start as a front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive is optional. The rear has a refreshing approach which is positive considering the fact that most of its rivals have awkward rears (Toyota CH-R). It has a high ground clearance which is decent for partial offroad and coupled with the optional AWD which make cornering a bliss.

Driver and passenger side airbags are standard across all range of the vehicle
