Grand Motors, the exclusive distributor of Kia vehicles in Brunei, has finally unveiled the all-new KIA Seltos, a compact SUV that exudes sophistication and assertiveness.

The Seltos is sporty and spacious while equipped with the capabilities of a traditional SUV – all in a compact package, definitely made for the millennial generation.

The SUV is perfect for the youthful and tech-savvy buyers, possessing an outstanding value for money – thanks to a range of technological features that maximize connectivity and safety, a roomy interior that seats five and high levels of space and versatility.

Kia Motors is committed in extending its range of SUVs to fulfill the needs of customers in every market, with the new model bringing many of Kia’s strengths – in design, quality and technology – to the compact SUV segment for the first time.

During the event, the auto dealer handed over car keys to the first owners of the Seltos and one of the owners bought two cars for the family.

“I bought one unit for myself and another for my parents. We knew about the car way before it came into Brunei and we are indeed happy,” said Waffiqah Shahrum, adding that she found out about the Seltos online.

The 22-year-old also said that Kia has always been her family’s trusted car brand and that they already owned six Kia vehicles.

The Seltos is powered by a 1.6-litre MPI gasoline engine, accelerating from 0 to 100mph in 11.8 seconds showing that the newly developed third-generation powertrain promises high efficiency and powerful performance.

On the outside, the Seltos has distinctive details that include a long hood, a strong character line on the front bumper and sharp lines pressed into the bodywork.

What makes the car prominent are Kia’s signature tiger-nose grille and the rear bumper with a metallic muffler effect that accentuates its dynamic appearance.

The vehicle sits on a 17-inch premium crystal cut alloy wheels which complement the dimensions of the car, lending it a powerful stance.

Moreover, on the inside, the cabin is characterized by broad, sweeping shapes and highly technical details.

The ergonomics of the cabin allow the driver to sit comfortably with a commanding view, helping to focus on driving and naturally reduce fatigue.

Within the lounge-like and spacious interior, the Seltos also houses a user-friendly center beneath that allows features such as ventilation and air conditioning.

Furthermore, the Seltos comes in two variants – the Standard line and the GT line.

The GT line, however, is available in two-tone combination colours such as Aurora Black Pearl + Steel Grey, Aurora Black Pearl + Glacier White Pearl and Aurora Black Pearl + Intense Red.
