According to sources, the majority of the styling cues draw inspiration from the Seltos X Line concept. Reports suggest that the X Line variant will position itself above the current range-topping GT Line. Unlike the Anniversary Edition model, the X Line will become part of the variant lineup. This means that Project X will not be a limited edition model.

Sources reveal that the Seltos X Line will also come with a new Matte Graphite paint scheme.

The SUV also features a new tailgate applique, new skid plate and dual exhaust system. The X Line variant is also likely to come with 18-inch alloy wheels in a new design.

On the inside, the Kia Seltos X Line will come with a dark theme on the inside. The SUV features Indigo Pera leatherette seats with a honeycomb pattern. The Seltos X Line will also come with a touchscreen infotainment system, digital instruments cluster, and features carried over from the top-spec GT Line.
