South Korean car manufacturer’s first offering for Indian market came in the form of an SUV called Seltos. The SUV became a hit instantly and created ripples in its segment where it competes with SUV’s like Tata Harrier, MG Hector, Hyundai Creta. The long waiting period for the Seltos SUV explains that we have accepted Seltos SUV with both our hands. Seltos is now a very common sight on our roads. People have also started customising the SUV to their likings. We have one such Seltos here with one-of-a-kind modification done to it.
The video has been uploaded by Hybrid Customs on their youtube channel. The video starts by showing a lower trim Seltos in a garage with all the lights off. Compared to the higher trims, lower variants of the Seltos does not get the cool looking all-LED headlamp and fog lamp set up. The video then shows the Seltos switching on the LED DRLs and then start putting the turn indicators.
This is were the modification is done. normally none of the Seltos get an Audi-styled matrix DRL and indicator setup. The set up looks cool and gels well with the character of the car. It does not look like an after market fitment a at all. Later the video shows the car being taken out in dark to show the lights in its full glory. The LEDs are pretty bright and can be spotted from quite a distance for sure. This kind of modification with matrix DRLs installed is something that we have not heard before in a Seltos and can be called as on of the first Seltos to get this feature.
