2021 Kia Seltos X-Line, what is new?
Kia made several cosmetic upgradements for the Seltos X-Line to provide it with its own personality like Tata did with its Dark edition model. A new “Xclusive Matte Graphite” paint is the biggest external modification as no other model in the market offers matt finished color.
In addition, on the front and rear skid plates Kia also provided the XLine with the ‘exclusive black pianos’ treatment, the Outside Rear View Mirrors, the shark-fin antenna, the back door garnish, and a fake exhaust on the rear bumpers. The ‘Sun Orange’ highlights on the skid plates, lateral doors, and central caps are accompanied by those brilliant black plugs. The X-Line wears a bigger 18-inch alloy wheel with a matte graphite finish in relation to its wheels. The “X-Lin” emblem on the rear porch makes it more distinguishable from the rest of the new model.
