Not long ago, Kia promised to debut a new small SUV called the Sel­tos that would sit along­side the Soul in its range. At the time it gave us a lit­tle tease of what part of a tail­light and the badge would look like, a brief expla­na­tion of the name Sel­tos and, well, not much else.

Now, though, we’re get­ting more of a pre­view than we expect­ed thanks to a short YouTube video from Kia’s Indi­an arm. The video, pub­lished Fri­day, shows that the Sel­tos is pret­ty hand­some-look­ing for a vehi­cle in its class. In fact, it’s sport­ing bits of the Vol­vo XC40, a car near and dear to our hearts here at Road­show.

The video does­n’t explain much else, but the cap­tion says that we should expect a full world pre­miere on June 20.

Kia rep­re­sen­ta­tives have con­firmed to Road­show that the Sel­tos will be a glob­al vehi­cle, which means we can prob­a­bly expect to see it in US show­rooms at some point. We do know that it’s des­tined to go on sale in Korea and oth­er mar­kets in the lat­ter half of 2019.
