Two dual-tone units of the Kia Seltos have been snapped in Bangalore, showing two different colour combinations for the first time. Facebook group Kia Seltos Club India member Ram Dantuluri has spotted these SUVs.
The Kia Seltos will apparently be offered in no less than two dual-tone schemes. One comprises white body and orange ORVMs, roof and shark-fin antenna. The other scheme includes red body and black ORVMs, roof and shark-fin antenna. White body with black ORVMs, roof and shark-fin antenna is a possible third option.
Kia has confirmed that single-tone colour choices for the Seltos in India will be Intense Red, Punchy Orange, Clear White, Glacier White Pearl, Steel Silver, Gravity Gray, Aurora Black Pearl and Intelligency Blue. Similarly, the interior could also be offered in single-tone and dual-tone choices, with the former being pure black.
