Kia Seltos is one of the most popular mid-size SUV in the segment. It competes with cars like Hyundai Creta, MG Hector and Tata Harrier in the segment. It is has been in the market for couple of years and Seltos is now a commonly spotted car on our roads. Just like Creta, people who own base variant Kia Seltos have also started modifying their SUV to top-end trims. We have featured several modifications of similar kind on our website and here we have another SUV which has been completely transformed from a base HTE variant to top-end GT-Line version.
The video has been uploaded by VIG AUTO ACCESSORIES on their YouTube channel. The video starts with the vlogger showing all the changes that have been made to the SUV. At the front, new grille, chrome surrounds have been installed. In the lower variants, Seltos comes with a sober looking grille. The split LED DRLs that extend to the grille has also been installed. The headlamps have been replaced too. It is now an all LED unit and so is the turn indictor.
As this is converted to a GT Line version, the front bumper on the Seltos was replaced for a GT Line bumper. It comes with faux silver coloured skid plate with red accents for added sporty look. Ice cube shaped LED fog lamps have also been installed on this SUV. Coming to the side profile, the steel rims on the base variant were replaced with a top-end machine cut alloy wheel. Red accents on the wheel cap are also installed.
base variant gets turn indicators on fenders, that has been removed and the gap has been filled by sticking a chrome finished faux air vent. The ORVMs are now electrically adjustable and the LED turn indicator is also integrated with it. The lower door cladding with red accents, lower window garnish, roof rails and door visors are also installed in this Seltos. The chrome door handles complete the looks of the Seltos in the side profile.
At the rear, the regular tail lamps in the base variant where replaced for all LED split unit. The chrome applique running between the tail lamps is also installed. Rear bumper on this Seltos was again replaced with a GT Line bumper.
Another feature that has been installed in this Seltos is the 360 degree camera. The feed is shown on an aftermarket touchscreen that is installed in the cabin. It gets custom made black coloured leatherette seat covers with red accents and the dashboard and the door pads also get similar kind of padding. Switches to control audio have been installed on the steering wheel and the owner has also opted for scuff plates and gear knob from higher variants. Overall, the work done on this SUV looks very neat. No one can actually figure out just by looking at the car that it is a base variant. GT-Line is originally available with 1.5 litre turbo diesel and 1.4 litre turbo petrol engine options.
