Kia Seltos is currently one of the popular mid-size SUV in the country. Kia made their debut in the Indian market couple of years ago and Seltos was their first product. This mid-size made in India SUV quickly became popular among buyers for various reasons. It is without any doubt one of the most aggressive looking mid-size SUV in the segment. It is available with various engine and gearbox options along with feature loaded cabin. We have seen several examples of modified Kia Seltos in the country and here we have images of India’s first Kia Seltos GT Line to get Nardo Grey colour wrap on it.
Nardo grey colour is normally associated with performance cars. We have seen similar paint job on performance oriented version of Audi cars in the past. Kia Seltos seen in the video is completely wrapped in Nardo Grey colour to give it a sporty look. It is probably the first Kia Seltos in India to get this wrap job. Earlier we had seen a new generation Hyundai Creta with same type of modification. The wrap looks very neat and in order to enhance the sporty look of the car, all the chrome garnishes and elements on the car have been blacked out.
The front grille, rear tail light garnish, allot wheels are all blacked out to give it a uniform look. The roof has also been blacked out in this Kia Seltos. The red accents that are normally seen on GT-Line version have however been retained to maintain the sporty look. It is not known whether any customisations have been done to the interior of the car. No information regarding any upgrades to the engine are available.
The Kia Seltos grabbed buyers attention for its looks. the Tiger nose grille. LED DRLs that extend to the grille, all LED headlamps and tail lamps were features that we had not seen on any cars in that segment. On the inside , Kia offered features like electric sunroof, ventilated seats, inbuilt air purifier, premium speaker system, large 10.25 inch touchscreen infotainment system, connected car features, rear AC vents, automatic climate control, multi-function steering wheel, 360 degree camera, Head-up display and so on.

The 1.5 litre petrol engine generates 115 Ps and 144 Nm of peak torque. Seltos is also available with a 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine option. This engine is also available with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox option. The diesel version of Kia Seltos generates 115 Ps and 250 Nm of peak torque.
The third engine option is the 1.4 litre turbo petrol engine that is available with 7-speed DCT and manual gearbox. This engine generates 140 Ps and 242 Nm of torque. The 1.5 litre diesel and the 1.4 litre turbo petrol engine options are available with GT-Line trims. After the launch of Seltos, Kia brought their premium or luxury MPV Carnival and then launched the sub-4 meter compact SUV Sonet in the market. Both Seltos and Sonet are doing great in terms on numbers.
