New Kia Seltos unveiled ahead of US debut

New Kia Seltos unveiled ahead of US debut

November 20, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

This pretty noticeable advertisement is at the top of the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Yesterday, the automaker took off a teaser that depicted a hidden SUV with a debut date of November 20. So, imagine our surprise when you saw this gigantic advertisement, “representing the finished Kia Seltos of 2021.” And where do we see it? Why, right next to the Los Angeles Convention Center, where car journalists from around the world are currently mass gathering at the auto show. It can be assumed that this advertising team did not receive a reminder to keep secret until the 20th.

As for leaks, this is not the worst. Kia actually showed the Seltos a few months ago in India, but the compact SUV has not been confirmed for the US market. From a technical point of view, this ad does not confirm that Seltos is coming to America. We also do not have any details about the proposed U.S specification of Seltos, which can be found after the official presentation. Perhaps the crossover will receive a 1.6-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine running on gasoline or diesel, and a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter engine.

You can also say that it should be located in the line of the automaker next to the Kia Niro, although its square style resembles the Kia Soul. Comparing ads with the global version of Seltos, you can notice some minor differences. Given the extremely competitive compact crossover segment in the United States, small changes compared to the international model, whether aesthetically or mechanically, are out of the question.
