Kia India is planning to launch a new variant of its popular Seltos compact SUV in the market. The new variant is called the Seltos X-Line that is already on sale in the select international markets and was also showcased in India previously in a pre-production form at the 2020 Auto Expo. For the record, the Seltos X-Line off-road rally concept was also showcased at the LA Auto Show in 2019. This US-spec concept model featured rally lights, off-road tyres on custom alloys, and a front-mounted winch.

Apart from a new dark finish in the matte shade, the new Seltos X-Line has received a slew of other visual tweaks for a meaner, shadier appearance. Its gunmetal grey finish gets black glossy treatment on certain parts which is also accompanied by light-red highlights. At the front, there is a new glossy black grille which is now flanked by headlights with a smoked effect. Lower down, the front bumper has also been remastered and gets light-red highlights.

Also, it now gets new glossy black ORVMs. The rest of the bits on the side profile remain as is. At the rear, the X-Line gets smoked LED taillights, along with revised cladding for a more aggressive stance. 

The overall cabin layout of the X-Line remains the same, but it sports a dark theme and new faux leather upholstery that complements its exteriors.
