KIA SELTOS || Custom Ultra Matrix DRLs
The highlight of this customized Kia Seltos is the new set of turn indicators and DRLs on the front end. The after-market turn indictor is inspired by Audi’s matrix DRL-indicator system. Based on the look of the Kia Seltos at the beginning of the video, it seems to be a lower trim, since the lower-end variant of the Kia Seltos does not get the full-LED headlight-foglight setting as the top-spec variants. The magic, however, starts when the headlights are turned up, showing its mesmerizing light effect. The video starts with the stunning performance of the headlights followed by activation of the turn indicators. The video also shows this Kia Seltos with its new lighting system in the dark to show its full glory.
Admittedly, the lighting effect of the new matrix system looks superb and befitting with Kia Seltos' exterior design. Moreover, it is well-fitted and neat with a high level of refinement, which makes it hard to tell it is an aftermarket replacement. This car must be the first modified Seltos to get this matrix-effect lighting system. Looking at how good it looks on this car, some people might be inspired to have their cars customized with the same instalment. The total price of this modification is not revealed yet.
