Even though Kia has been teasing a new small crossover over the past few weeks, details have been sketchy and not very accurate. Now images are emerging of the next New Kia known as the Kia Seltos — somewhat completely unveiled well before the actual reveal.
Sized somewhere between the Kia Soul and the Sportage, with no specifics on powertrain, or if it may be of the EV realm, but there’s definitely room for another Hamster campaign, and this one does definitely look pretty sharp.
The photos also show that the drawings Kia released were clearly of the production car. Everything looks nearly identical. It also leans on many current design trends such as a black or contrasting-color roof separated by metallic trim, faux metallic skid plates on the bumpers, and a rising window line at the back. The car has more lines and creases than most of Kia’s relatively organic designs of late. The headlights and taillights do have lots of nice detailing, though this is probably a high-level model, and those details may be lost on lower trims.
