The Nightfall Edition features Kia's new logo and along with it there are some minor variations on its exterior and interior to differentiate it from the standard top-end model. The exterior carries a few styling revisions such as a blacked-out grille, black side sills, black roof rails and a set of 18-inch alloy wheels.

However, the same dark theme is not carried over to the inside. The seats and roof still use a light shade of beige to make the cabin feel spacious. On the equipment front, the new Nightfall Edition gets an adjustable steering wheel, automatic climate control, ventilated leather seats, power windows, and a large 10.25-inch infotainment system with UVO connectivity.

The new 2021 update for the US market brings with it plenty of tech in terms of safety. These new features include auto emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, forward collision assist with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, rear blind spot collision avoidance assist, etc. These features make the US version of KIA Seltos a lot safer than its Indian counterpart.

Another big change in the US version compared to the Indian version is the motor under the ‘hood'. The Indian version gets three options for propulsion, which includes a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated motor, a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine, and a more powerful 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine. These engines pump out 113bhp, 113bhp and 138bhp respectively.

Thoughts On The Kia Seltos Nightfall Edition Being Launched

It is quite clear that the American market is getting a more value-for-money product with the Kia Seltos. It comes with more powerful engine options and comes loaded with more safety as well. We can only wish for Kia to launch the bigger engines in India. But wanting some of those fancy safety features is more reasonable.
