However, note that the you won't see this price list on Kia Malaysia's site just yet - we got this information from a dealer prior to Kia Malaysia's official announcement.

At least it's back on the website - lending credence to the 'imminent launch' claim. Clicking on it leads to an error page though.

That said, checks with the dealer revealed that the car will be launched later this month, with deliveries taking place shortly thereafter.

At these prices, the Seltos is dearer than some of its competitors, namely the Proton X50 Flagship (RM 103,300), and Honda HR-V RS (RM 118,581.81).
