As expected, the new Seltos SUV will feature a reworked exterior design. It would not, however, be identical to the global Seltos. Key design highlights of the facelift include a new front fascia, refreshed grille design, new and better-looking LED DRLs, redesigned skid plates and bumpers, fresh-looking LED tail lamps and full-width lightbar.
