Kia entered Indian market in 2019 with their mid Size SUV Seltos. The SUV became popular among buyers in a short span of time. The reason behind its quick popularity were the looks, features and the pricing. Last year at the Auto Expo, Kia showcased a very different or a rugged looking Seltos which was known as X Line to public. It attracted lot of attention at that time due to the way it looked. Kia has now decided to launch X Line version of Seltos SUV in the market and here we have a walkaround showing how different it is from the regular Seltos SUV.
The video has been uploaded by Gagan Choudhary on their YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger takes us through all the changes that differentiate it from the regular Seltos SUV. The Seltos X Line which was showcased at the Auto Expo last year was entirely different from this. The version showcased at the Expo was a rugged looking SUV while the one that Kia will be launching in the market is more like a Seltos with some cosmetic changes.
The main attraction on this Kia Seltos X Line is the matte finished paint job. The matte graphite paint job looks neat and changes the overall look of the car. The SUV continues to get all LED headlamps and tail lamps. The turn indicators are also LED units. The Tiger Nose front grille retains the same design. The garnishes around the front grille are now finished in dark chrome and the ice cube shaped LED fog lamps are also placed on the bumper.
In the X Line showcased at the Auto Expo last year, a carbo fiber insert was placed in place of the fog lamps. The lower part of the bumper gets an orange coloured insert. This combination was seen at the Auto Expo version as well. Coming to the side profile, the Seltos X Line gets 18 inch alloy wheels. The standard Seltos or GT Line version comes with 17 inch wheels. The alloy wheels also come with a new design.
Just like in the GT Line version, Seltos X Line also comes with orange accents at places to differentiate it from regular or GT Line variant. Towards the rear, Seltos X Line badging can be seen and the chrome strip running between the tail lamps are finished in gloss black. Kia’s new logo is placed in the center of the strip as well. On the inside, there are no changes except for the upholstery. X Line version gets blue or indigo coloured leatherette upholstery. Door pads are also wrapped in similar type of material.
Kia has not announced the prices for the X Line variant. It is based on the top-end version and is expected to be slightly more expensive than the GT Line variant. In terms of engine, X Line version is expected to be made available with 1.4 litre turbo petrol engine and the 1.5 litre turbo diesel engine. The turbo petrol engine gets manual and DCT gearbox while the diesel comes with manual and automatic transmission options.
