Grand Motors Sdn Bhd, the exclusive distributor of KIA is set to launch the latest edition of KIA Seltos tomorrow at its showroom.

KIA Seltos has been one of the most popular SUVs in the local market. The Seltos is available in Smartstream 1.5 petrol and 1.5 CRDi VGT engines as well as a diesel GL variant.

Members of the local media were given an opportunity to test-drive both variants yesterday.

The Star Map signature lighting across the front grille creates an attractive distinct look especially at night.
