For the Malaysian market, Naza Kia Malaysia (NKM) will be offering two variants of the Kia Seltos, namely the EX and GT-Line. Both variants are powered by a 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine that does 123 PS at 6,300 rpm and 151 Nm at 4,850 rpm. The engine is hooked up to a 6-speed automatic transmission that transfers drive to the front wheels.

When the Kia Seltos hits the market, it will enter a hotly-contested segment that’s populated with models such as the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Subaru XV, and Renault Captur. But that’s not all, as Hyundai will be introducing the Kona real soon, while Proton will be unveiling the highly-anticipated X50 in the coming weeks as well.
