Korean car company Kia Motors has introduced an updated model of its popular SUV, the Seltos. The 2021 Kia Seltos now offers more standard safety features than before. Also, a new top variant of the company Kia Seltos has brought Seltos Gravity. The look and interior of the Kia Seltos Gravity is different from the other variants. The updated Celtos and Celtos Gravity have just been introduced in Kia’s home market South Korea.
The new top variant gravity of Celtos features a new chrome front grille with different 3-dimensional design elements and new styled dual-tone 18-inch machined alloy wheels with other variants.
