After a period of hush, Naza Kia Malaysia, the official distributor of Kia in Malaysia, is putting out some noise on the impending launch of the Kia Seltos. It had also started taking bookings for the Seltos several weeks ago. That is because the B-segment is expected to be very busy in the following months, whether it be in the sedan or SUV / crossover category as several launches are in the pipeline, giving consumers more choices.
The all-new Seltos is the latest compact SUV from Kia. Known by its distinctive design details, it hopes to raise the bar in this segment. For example, Kia’s engineers designed the lighting system to showcase a three-dimensional flow of light with the image of slim and detailed tail lamps connecting the voluminous fender to the rear.
One of the Seltos’ claim to fame is its signature “Heart Beat Lighting” which features a lighting technology and design combination of full LED ‘crown jewel’ headlamps, tail lamps and ‘ice cube’ fog lamps which mimics a heartbeat reading on the ECG.
Furthermore, the integrated LED bar on the upper end of the front grille ensures extra visibility of your vehicle. The lamp was designed to illuminate not only in the dark of night, but also in broad daylight. The lower part of the headlamps also house the sleek turn indicators.
This compact SUV is touted as Kia’s work-of-art and features a conspicuous front with the signature tiger nose grille. The Seltos’ profile is defined by its long hood with robust shoulder lines, lending the compact SUV an air of understated sportiness. The rear bumper with a metallic muffler effect further adds to its dynamic appearance.
The all-new Kia Seltos will come equipped with a range of technologies to maximise convenience, connectivity and ease of use. The cabin is claimed to be lounge-like to provide occupants a spacious and versatile interior. There will be two variants available in Malaysia i.e. EX and GT-Line. Prices have not been confirmed so you are free to set your expectations and speculate.
