However, the lower variants come with a matte-finished design upfront. The SUV sports 18-inch dual-tone wheels. The SUV also flaunts silver finish for the wing mirrors, door garnish and the rear skid plate. The remaining stylings remain identical to other trims.
On the inside, the Korean-spec Seltos Gravity comes with a light grey colour scheme upholstery and a dark grey front panel.

The SUV gets an optional multimedia system with a 10.25-inch touchscreen display with UVO technology, Bose music system, 7-inch TFT display for the instrument panel, remote engine start, push-button start-stop, cruise control, projection display, blind-spot monitoring systems, lane-keeping system and more.
For added safety, the SUV packs side and curtain airbags, electronic stability control, hill hold control, vehicle stability management, lane departure prevention assistance, forward collision prevention assistance, lane maintenance assistance, navigation based smart cruise control system and more.
Mechanically, the Kia Seltos Gravity borrows the same powertrain options from the rest of the Seltos range. It includes 1.6-litre turbo-petrol and 1.6-litre turbo-diesel engines. Both the engines are mated with a 7-speed DCT transmission, whereas the company offers all-wheel drive functionality as an option on both the powerplants. The petrol unit makes 174.5 bhp and 265 Nm of peak torque whereas the oil burner churns out 134 bhp but 320 Nm.
