Kia Seltos has been very popular since the time it has been launched in India and it is ruling the compact SUV segment for some time now. Some times back it was the only offering being sold with a BS6 Compliant engine and it attracted public towards it. A total of 15450 units of Kia Seltos were sold in the month of January, 2020 however February showed atleast 40% decline in the sales of the vehicle that can be much attributed to the anticipated of launch of New Creta 2020 BS6.
CRETA 2020 EFFECT: KIA SELTOS TO GET MORE FEATURES
The new Creta 2020 BS6 was launched on 16th March sometimes ago and since then the vehicle has received more than 14000 bookings. The bookings can be well attributed the new design and inclusion of some class leading features that the Seltos misses on like the presence of a Panaromic Sunroof in the SX and SX(o) variants.
Further Hyundai seems to be a more reliable brand in India because of its long presence as compared to KIA that has made the sales of Kia go into the bookings for the New Hyundai Creta 2020 BS6. Both Hyundai Creta 2020 and Kia Seltos however sit on the same platform and share the same engine and transmission options. The Kia Seltos was first introduced in India in August 2019 and it has attracted huge sales numbers since then.
Kia Seltos is currently being offered in 24 variants with 3 engine options. Some of the dealer sources confirm us that more features will be added in the Kia Seltos’s outgoing mid sped HTK Plus variant and the Top of the line variants however they could not confirm inclusion of Panaromic sunroof. Panaromic sunroof was recently included in the Global Seltos variants so it is quite possible that it would be probably the addition the dealers are talking about. Further a dual tip exhaust, USB port for the rear occupants and emergency brake signal is an expected update.
The Seltos is currently priced at Rs. 9.89 Lakhs to Rs. 17.34 Lakhs (All prices, Ex-Showroom India). With the inclusion of the new features Kia might be planning to increase prices slightly.
