Overdrive: First drive review of Kia Seltos

Updated : August 12, 2019 08:53:46 IST

After a drip-feed of information and plenty of commercials, the Kia Seltos is finally on its way to making an appearance in the dealership by the end of this month.

There are plenty of variants to choose from but we got our hands on 3 of the most important variants we think will make a difference in the Indian market.

However, Kia doesn’t need an introduction. For the last 3 years they have created enough buzz about themselves and if you still do not know who they are – well, they are a big South Korean carmaker, sibling to Hyundai, have a massive product range which is also very similar to that of Hyundai’s and the common products between the 2 brands; they always keep trumping each other on innovation, on a kit, which is not exactly a bad thing because it only makes the product portfolio grow stronger and at the same time it also puts the consumer in the winning seat.

Seltos, Kia’s first product for Indian market is taking a similar approach. They have borrowed the underpinnings of the Creta and also its overall shape. So does that makes Seltos just another badged engineered product. Not at all.
