Kia Seltos was the first product of the South-Korean carmaker that went on sale in the Indian market. Thanks to its appealing looks, long feature list, multiple engine-gearbox options, and affordable pricing, it turned out to be a hot-seller. The Seltos is loved by the audience of different age groups. Since the younger audience loves modifying cars, spruced-up examples of Kia Seltos are an easy sight. We recently came across a modified Kia Seltos via a social media platform. This Seltos features a colourful yet funky roof wrap. The pictures of this modified example were shared by Vasudama Dasa.
In the images, the Seltos can be seen with a multi-colour roof wrap. In case you are wondering, if this wrap comprises of several layers, then that isn’t the case. It a printed roof wrap from 3M’s ‘Roof Tera Mastana’ series of vinyl wraps, instead. The brand has specifically designed this product range for wrapping the roof of a car. These digitally-printed wraps are UV-resistant and are designed to leave no glue marks after removal. Moreover, 3M is offering a 24-month warranty against cracking or fading.

It gets an electronic sunroof, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, Bose sound system, Android Auto & Apple CarPlay compatibility, ventilated & power-adjustable front seats, head-up display, air purifier and more.
