At the current 16th Indian Auto Expo, Kia Motor India has shown the new EV9 SUV concept and the new generation Carnival (KA4). The automaker also prepares the Kia Seltos facelift India; it was rumored to be presented during the 2023 Auto Expo, but that didn’t happen. However, certain other markets, including South Korea and the US, have already started selling the 2023 Kia Seltos facelift.

The new SUV has a new turbocharged gasoline engine, an updated interior, and improvements to the exterior appearance. Although the precise debut date has not yet been disclosed, we anticipate the new Kia Seltos facelift to be introduced in the second quarter of 2023, most likely in or around April.
KIA Seltos Facelift Interior
The redesigned Seltos has the same aesthetic updates as the international model. It has a bigger, tiger-nose front grille with full projection LED headlights, Star Map trademark lighting across the length of the grille, a newly designed bumper, and vertically curved fog lights that are also daytime running lights. Rear LED taillights have been redesigned, and the bumper has been modernized. Additionally, it has sequential LED turn indicators like those seen in Audi vehicles.

The 2023 Kia Seltos’ interior mostly resembles that of the current model. The 10.25-inch center display and the 10.25-inch instrument cluster are combined into a panoramic screen display. Along with navigation, voice controls, and wireless Apple CarPlay, the infotainment system is capable. In addition, it has a brand-new digital instrument panel, an electronic parking brake, and automatic air conditioning with AC vents in the back. The SUV also has a panoramic sunroof, something the present model does not have.
The installation of radar-based driver assistance technologies is the most significant modification. Blind spot detection, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision-avoidance system, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, blind spot collision-avoidance assist, safe exit warning, high beam assist, lane following assist, and driver attention warning are just a few of the ADAS features available on the 2023 Kia Seltos.
KIA Seltos Facelift Engine
A new 1.5-liter 4 cylinders turbocharged gasoline engine will replace the existing 1.4-liter turbo gasoline engine in the 2023 Kia Seltos built for India. It’s possible that the 1.4-liter turbo won’t meet the impending actual driving pollution standards, which take effect in April 2023. The new 1.5L turbocharged petrol engine has a 158 bhp and 260 Nm torque rating. There will be choices for 7-speed DCT and 6-speed manual gearboxes. There will also be 115 bhp, 1.5 L normally aspirated gasoline, and 115 bhp, 1.5 L diesel engine choices.
