Kia Seltos has received some updates to take on the 2020 Hyundai Creta. But, what are the most significant ones of those? Here's a list of 5 of them, check out.
Kia Seltos is the best-selling car of the South-Korean carmaker in the Indian market. It helped the brand carve a niche for itself around the Indian audience. The Seltos was loved by the Indian car buyers to an extent that Kia became the third-largest carmaker in India in February this year. However, in March, Hyundai launched the 2020 Creta, which grabbed a big bite from the Seltos's market share right after its launch. The 2020 Creta was the best-selling car for May this year. This made Kia update the features list of the Seltos, and it now comes with a revamped one. Before you folks start panicking to know of the changes, here’s the list of 5 new features that Kia Seltos now get to take on the 2020 Creta.
To match the all-black interior of the Turbo variants of the 2020 Hyundai Creta, Kia is now offering the top-spec GTX+ variants in all-black leather upholstery. In earlier models, only the GTK and GTK+ trims came with an all-black interior, whereas the GTX and GTX+ trims were offered with dual-tone black-beige upholstery.
Smartwatch Connectivity With UVO Connect
The UVO connected-vehicle tech of the Kia now offers connectivity with smartwatches to let the owners start/stop their car remotely. Also, it offers other functions, such as lock/unlock the car or analyze the AQI of the car’s cabin. It offers a total of 37 connected car features.
With the 2020 update, Kia Seltos gets a revised key fob, which now comes with a button to remote start/stop the car’s engine. It can be done so when the vehicle is not more than 500 feet away from you.
Sunroof In HTX and GTX Trims
MY2019 models of the Kia Seltos offered the sunroof in the GTX+ and HTX+ trims only. However, it is now a much-loved feature of the Indian audience. And, Hyundai Creta offers a panoramic one, instead. Thus, Kia is now offering it in the not-top-spec GTX and HTX trims, as well.
Kia offered the Seltos with different rear bumper designs with different trim levels. The top-spec trims came fitted with dual-exhaust muffler type bumper. Although, the exhaust ports were fake, but Kia is now fitting in the same bumper on the lower variants as well.
