Is Kia still going to make the Optima?

It’s important to mention that the Seltos X-Line Trail Attack and the Seltos X-Line Urban Concept are just that, concept vehicles. We don’t know when or if the features teased by these models will be available, but they will certainly give us a better look at what the new Kia crossover SUV platform can do.
