One of the off-road modifications is based on the entry-level trim that misses out on the LED headlamps and DRLs. The model is painted in off-white shade along with orange accents on the ORVMs, side skirts, front and rear bumper and orange roof.
Upfront, the Kia Seltos modified off-road version features a new black grille with matte black finish, blacked out headlamps and a hood scoop. There are four auxiliary lamps on the roof integrated on the roof carrier. Compared to regular model, the modified version has higher ground clearance. Features such as off-road tyres, suspensions with more travel and a winch enhance its off-road performance. Read – Kia to Launch 6 New Cars in India
