Kia Motor made their entry into the Indian market last year and quickly became popular with its Seltos SUV. The Seltos is currently one of the best selling SUV in the country. Kia Seltos is popular in the segment that in just over 8 months, the manufacturer has managed to sell over 81,000 units. It is popular among buyers because of the bold looks features and the price at which it is being offered. It competes with Hyundai Creta in the segment. Hyundai is currently working on a 7-seater version of Creta and it has been spied testing couple of times. What if Kia also decides to launch a 7-seater version of the Seltos. Here we have a video that shows how the 7-seater version of Kia Seltos SUV would look like.
The video has been uploaded by SRK Designs on his youtube channel. The video starts by showing the extended rear. The rear of the car has been extended to create more space so that it can accommodate the third row of seats. The wheelbase of the car remains the same as that of the 5-seater Seltos. Coming to the side profile, Seltos 7-seater version has the same design as the regular Seltos but gets a different design to the alloy wheels.
The major differences are on the front of the car. The Headlights, signature Tiger Nose grille are all retained whereas the design of the bumper has been redesigned. The bumper now gets a muscular line running from one end to the other between for lamps. The fog lamps are also redesigned, the render does not get the ice cube design foglamps. The render retains all the elements of the Seltos but is designed to accommodate one more row of seat at the rear. This render is clearly an imagination of the artist and Kia currently has no such pla to introduce a 7-seater.
Kia Seltos is available in three engine options – a 1.4 litre turbo petrol, 1.5 litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.5 litre turbo diesel engine. All the engines get manual and automatic gearbox options. Kia is currently working on their third product which is a sub-4 meter compact SUV based on Sonet concept which was showcased at the Auto Expo this year. The Sonet concept based SUV is likley to be launched in the market later this year. It’ll take on the likes of the Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue and other sub-compact, sub-4 meter SUVs.
