Kia India will host the domestic debut of the facelifted Seltos on July 4, 2023 and its prices will more likely be announced by the end of next month. The updated Seltos made its world premiere last year in Busan and since then its reach has been expanded across the globe. The 2023 Kia Seltos is a thorough refresh inside and out.

The Seltos has been an integral part of the brand garnering volumes since its India debut nearly four years ago. The upcoming facelift will come with a number of revisions including a brand new front fascia. Only a few days ago, the undisguised spy images of the Seltos facelift’s GT Line trim came up on the internet revealing some of the key details.

It looks like the India-spec model will get minor changes compared to the global version. The front end comprises a redesigned grille section, new LED Daytime Running Lights and an updated bumper. The rear comes with tweaked tailgate, sharper LED tail lamps connected by a horizontal LED light bar with the Kia corporate badge sitting in the middle.
