Pre-order for a new compact cross started at the end of last month. It took only a week to collect over 3,000 prepaid bids from KIA dealers in South Korea.

The new compact crossover KIA Seltos, which has recently become available for pre-order on the home market, sets first records. According to the local edition of Pulsenews, in the first week after the start of pre-order processing, more than 3,000 people made an advance payment for the new product. This excitement! The product version of the cross showed on June 20. For Korea, Seltos turned out to be larger than India: the length increased by 60 mm, and the distance between the axes increased by 20 mm. Not without a slightly modified exterior. For example, other side moldings.

In the Korean compact cross-salon we won’t find a mechanical parking brake – it was replaced by the “parking brake” activation system using a button. Also for the Korean Seltos came up with a new layout of dashboard and multimedia – they lost a single visor. Everything else, for the Korean KIA Seltos automaker used other finishing materials.

 The range of engines available has also undergone changes. Seltos will enter the home market with a 1.6-liter 177-horsepower turbo engine, as well as a 136-horsepower diesel engine of the same volume. A pair of them will be a seven-speed robotized gearbox. And one more thing – in South Korea it will be possible to purchase all-wheel drive Seltos. For the most affordable KIA Seltos in the South Korean auto show asking 19,300,000 won.

Meanwhile, KIA XCeed pickup truck shown on the render. The only global difference from the standard cross-hatchback here is the cargo platform.
