Re: KIA Seltos facelift spied in Korea

The Sonet like lower 'teeth' in the front bumper look tacky! The OG Seltos GT line has one of the most classy alloy designs - these are overdesigned. Apart from these 2 points, I think the evolutionary design changes look good, especially the light bar. Excited for the India launch!

Kia has teased the 2024 Seltos, ahead of its North American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on September 17th.

While the teaser images aren’t very revealing, the cat’s already out of the bag as the facelifted variant was introduced in South Korea this summer.

Re: KIA Seltos facelift spied in Korea

Kia Seltos face-lift presented for the US:

Quote:
The interior was a weak spot for the Seltos, but Kia has addressed the issue with a new dashboard and a revised instrument cluster that now features a larger 4.2-inch display. However, the real standout is the available panoramic screen display that consists of a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and a matching 10.25-inch infotainment system.

Additional changes are limited, but the 2024 Seltos sports a revised center stack with updated controls. They’re joined by new air vents and a familiar shifter, unlike the Korean variant which has a more minimalist rotary setup. Customers will also find higher-end options such as a power liftgate and ventilated front seats. Other highlights include support for over-the-air updates and available digital key technology.

Under the hood, there’s a familiar 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 147 hp (110 kW / 149 PS) and 132 lb-ft (180 Nm) of torque. It’s connected to an Intelligent Variable Transmission, which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system.

While the entry-level engine carries over, the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder has been upgraded to produce 195 hp (146 kW / 198 PS) for an increase of 20 hp (15 kW / 20 PS). Turbocharged models also trade the current seven-speed dual-clutch transmission for a new eight-speed automatic
The 2024 Seltos is slated to arrive at U.S. dealerships in the first half of 2023.

Re: KIA Seltos facelift spied in Korea

More than facelift we need better safety rated Seltos in India. After the 5 star rating on Kushaq and Taigun, I hope they pay focus on safety over features.

Kushaq/Taigun have advertised 5 star safety rating pretty well and lot of my relatives have better awareness now which is good and hope it puts right pressure on Kia/Hyundai.

Re: KIA Seltos facelift spied in Korea

Hi folks. A quick question :

Is it wise to wait for the launch and get the new 2023 HTX or should I take delivery of existing 2022 make delivery right away?

I need a new car by April 2023.

My Wait for Kia Seltos Facelift - Suggestions Requested

Hello Friends,

I was able to zero down on my choice as Seltos HTX Petrol last year after test driving Virtus & Taigun. Didn't go for Creta as we already have it in the near family.

When I was about to close the deal last year somewhere in May, this facelift thing suddenly came up while I was doing some Youtube searching and since then my plan has been on halt.

HTX petrol on road is costly ~17 lakhs to me here in my city and with facelift round the corner, I'm really confused about how to proceed. What is giving even more dilemma is the launch date. Earlier I read rumours and news articles about facelift getting launched during Diwali for which I postponed comfortably considering the existing model will be out of production soon and I don't want to feel outdated just in couple of months of buying a brand new car.

However, then I realized the tentative launch was pushed to January Auto EXPO which I again took with pinch of salt. Now I'm hearing Kia not presenting the facelift in the auto expo and it is being further delayed with showroom folks showing no interest to such queries and also clueless about the launch dates.

My excitement to get the car is being pushed off and hereby I'm here to understand if anyone of us has a better update about the possible/launch timelines in India. Or if shall I go with the current version only?

Suggestions are requested please. Thanks in advance

I am in Delhi and seeing similar 17 lakhs price for HTX. With Jan 2023 price hike and new model price, I am expecting this to hit around18.5 on road if I wait for the new model.

And even if Kia launches the new model in February 2023, I don't expect it to be available before may or June 2023(considering how long initial pictures to launch price reveal takes place.).

But these are all my estimates and some one can definitely add actual numbers here.

Yup I agree. I'm looking to wait for the auto expo in mid Jan. Else I'm thinking I would go with the current version with 2023 make. Do share if you get more info about the facelift version as you stay in Delhi and may get expo information more real-time than rest of us

Re: KIA Seltos facelift spied in Korea

Kia Seltos facelift to be launched in India by mid-2023

The updated versions of the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos have already reached global markets but are yet to be launched in India. While the Creta facelift has been pushed to next year, Kia is likely to introduce the updated Seltos around mid-2023.

The Seltos facelift made its global debut in June 2022 at the Busan Motor Show. As part of the update, the SUV gets a tweaked front fascia featuring a revised radiator grille, LED headlamps with new LED daytime running lights and a redesigned bumper. The rear end of the Seltos facelift features new L-shaped LED tail lights with an LED light bar similar to the Kia Carens.

Inside, the Seltos comes with a dual-screen setup that integrates a digital instrument cluster and a wide touchscreen infotainment system into a single unit. The SUV is also expected to get an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS).

Apart from the cosmetic changes, the Seltos facelift will also come with a new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine. This unit develops 158 BHP and 253 Nm and is said to replace the current 1.4-litre turbo-petrol motor. Kia will carry forward the 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine options.
