Kia Motors India, through its social media platform, is teasing a new product for the Indian market. The brand has just posted a picture of a Book and an Apple which we believe refers to, the ‘Discovery of Gravity’, by Sir Isaac Newton. This means Kia could be planning to launch the Kia Seltos Gravity which made its debut in its home market last year. The caption also says, “Coming Soon” which leads us to believe that the SUV will make its debut in the coming weeks.
Seltos Gravity Exteriors
The Kia Seltos Gravity which made its debut in the South Korean market features a new chrome studded radiator grille along with the tiger-nose design with a knurled pattern around the bezel. The SUV also features silver-finished ORVMs, new design 18-inch dual-tone machine-finish alloy wheels, silver door rock guard, silver finish on the skid plate, but the overall design remains the same. The SUV still comes with LED headlamps with LED DRLs, LED combination tail lamps, chrome window beltline, silver-finished roof rails, a tailgate-mounted spoiler and chrome garnishes on the rear.
The Seltos Gravity features a grey finish on the interiors, grey seat upholstery with a honeycomb-pattern and perforations, an island-style central infotainment system and recessed instruments cluster, etc. But this could be only limited to the Korean-spec Seltos. The India-spec model may get the interior upholstery and dashboard colour refreshments but the dashboard layout is likely to remain the same. The India-spec model comes with a twin display dashboard. There are rumours that Kia might bring a panoramic sunroof on the Seltos, which could be on the Gravity.
The Kia Seltos Gravity in India is also likely to come with the same BS6 compliant powertrains. Kia offers the Seltos with a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel motor. The engine line-up comes with either a 6-speed manual gearbox, a torque converter type 6-speed automatic transmission and the options of a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox, all depending upon the engine and trim.
