Kia’s all-new Seltos is a bold and adventurous crossover

November 7, 2019

Crossovers are a dime a dozen these days.

They’re so popular that a lot of them are beginning to look a bit plain Jane copies of each other.

But here comes Kia and its Seltos, which Kia Motors Philippines just debuted in the local market.

Sure, it’s a crossover, with its driver-friendly dimensions of 4,370mm x 1,800mm x 1,615mm (length x width x height) atop a 2,630mm wheelbase.

Yet it sets itself apart with its bold and striking stance, coupled with equally eye catching visual details. Even colors like Starbright Yellow and Ocean Blue beg to differ from the usual hues. The more daring types can even opt for dual tone paint schemes with Cherry Back to go with the standard shades.

Another set of features that make this one different from the pack is the drivetrain. It comes with a 2.0-liter DOHC D-CVt-equipped motor hooked up to Kia’s Intelligent Variable Transmission. In layman’s terms, it simply provides adequate punch and stellar fuel economy for the daily commute and those adventures out of the city.

Drivers can even toggle the Drive Mode Select switch and choose between Normal. Sport, and Eco settings. Each one is designed to suit their style behind the tiller and bring out the various facets of the vehicle.

Plus, Kia promises safety with its Advanced High Strength Steel body and chassis, Vehicle Stability Control, and back up camera with back up drive function. These ensure you’ll be protected at all times.

To help seal the deal, Kia will be giving a P50,000 introductory price discount for the new Seltos this November. You can choose from the different Seltos variants with the following prices:

  • Kia Sletos LX: P1,048,000
  • Kia Seltos EX: P1,148,000
  • Kia Seltos SX: P1,448,000
