The Kia Seltos SUV made its world debut in India last year. Ever since it was launched in August last year, the Seltos has seen an incredible success in the compact SUV segment in Indian market. It is a good vehicle with sufficient ground clearance, lots of comfort-oriented features, and a wide choice of powertrain options.
Now the South Korean automaker has showcased a radical one-off concept called the Seltos X-Line at the ongoing 2020 Auto Expo in New Delhi. The Kia Seltos X-Line concept features robust cosmetic enhancements with an aggressive front end, rugged bumpers with skid plates, blacked out alloy wheels, as well as body cladding that extends all the way towards the rear. The rear end also gets a more aggressive bumper with orange inserts like those on the front bumper.
Under the hood the Seltos X-Line utilizes a 1.4-liter turbo-petrol engine that makes 140hp of power and 242Nm of torque sending power to the front wheels. There is a custom 2-inch lift kit that raises its ground clearance to 234 mm.
Although the Kia Seltos X-Line looks quite appealing, however the concept might not be available as a production model. That being said, Kia might still offer some of these enhancements as accessories that will help make the regular Seltos appear even more rugged. In India, the Kia Seltos is available with 3 engine and 3 gearbox options distributed across 16 trims. Price starts from INR 9.69 lac while the top-spec variant is priced as high as INR 15.99 lac.
