Seltos was the first product from Korean manufacturer in Indian market. The SUV became a very popular choice among buyers in a very short span of time. The top-end trim of Kia Seltos is without any doubt one of the best looking SUV in the segment. Lower variant miss out on some of the features that give Seltos its badass look. Seltos is a mid-size SUV that competes with cars like Hyundai Creta, MG Hector and Tata Harrier in the segment. Here we have a video where a base HTE variant of Kia Seltos has been neatly modified to look like a top-end trim.
The video has been uploaded by VIG AUTO ACCESSORIES on their YouTube channel. The video shows all the changes that are done to the SUV to give it a GT Line look. He starts with the front grille. It has been replaced with a gloss black 3D grille. The upper and lower chrome strips around the grille has also been replaced. As this is being modified into a top-end trim, Vig Auto has installed a split LED DRL which extend to the grille.
The single projector headlamps have been replaced and it now comes with all LED unit. A small chrome garnish is also installed under the turn indicator. The bumper remains the same as before but, it now get the ice cube shaped LED fog lamps and the silver cladding with red accents that differentiate GT Line from regular versions. Moving to the side profile, the cladding on the lower part of the door has been replaced with GT Line ones with red accents. Other modification here is the auto folding ORVMs with integrated turn indicators in it.
A small chrome garnish has also been installed on the fender. The base version of Seltos comes with steel rims and wheel caps. That has been replaced with original GT Line 17 inch machine cut multi spoke alloy wheel. Chrome garnish has also been installed on the door handles to give it that premium look. Roof rails and door visors have also been installed and other than that no major changes have been done to the side profile of the Seltos.
Coming back to the rear, the tail lamps have been replaced for completely LED units. The chrome garnish between the lamps have also been replaced. Just like at the front and the side, a silver cladding is installed on the lower part of the rear bumper to give it the GT Line look. Inside the boot, Vig Auto installed new side panels to install the parcel tray which is not available with HTE variant. Other than that, the car gets leather padding on all the doors, there is GT Line like seats with red accents and it also gets floor mats.
The other modifications done to the car inside include an aftermarket touchscreen infotainment screen with supporting frame and cruise control feature. Yes, they have even installed cruise control to this base variant. One thing that should be noted here is that none of the wires were cut in order to install these new set of lights. They are all plugged to the couplers that is already present in the car. Overall, the work looks very neat and there is no way that anyone looking at the car could figure out that it is a base HTE trim.
