Kia Shows New Appearance Seltos 2023

It seems that the Kia Seltos has not been around for a long time. But in reality he is already 3 years old. That means it's time for a refresh. Kia's plans sound quite old. Now the facelift model has finally appeared before the public. Get important updates in line with the latest Kia lineup.

The appearance of the new B-segment SUV in the Honda HR-V class has not changed drastically. When the shroud was opened, it was still easy to recognize that this was Seltos. Still adopting the "Opposites United" design language. Its identity is reflected in the shape of the main light. As if it hasn't changed. Still carrying high-tech elements and futuristic abstract style designs.

If you look closely, some details change. For example, DRL luminescence that forms a triangular corner at the end. Then the line is made to blend with the chrome bars on the grille. The shape of the grille has changed slightly. Still characterizes the Tiger Nose, but the pattern inside is a mesh shape. Plus a silver frame on the edge similar to a Sonet. The Sonet's design has influenced the Seltos changes quite a bit. For example, a U-shaped silver skid plate that frames the front air dam.

The other most obvious is the hood. The end does not reach the facade area. Instead, it leaves an area filled with the latest Kia logo. Then the curve of the side line is also made more assertive. So that it looks more integrated with the front and rear lights. The line of the shoulders up remains the same. Characteristic of the chrome accents on the D pillar as a liaison with the roof line. Then the shape of the taillights changed almost completely. Now fully expanded with star-map graphics. The new 18-inch rim design, which is similar to that of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 Prime type, completes the new look of the
