Kia had launched its SUV Seltos in the country. The all-new Seltos is launched with two variants, the GT Line and Tech Line and both the variants are BS-VI compliant. Both of the variants will be available in both manual and automatic transmissions. The car comes with three engine options, the 1.5 litre petrol, 1.5 litre diesel, 1.4-litre GDi turbo petrol variants. The price of the SUV is yet to be announced but it’s expected that it will be priced between Rs. 11-18 Lakhs.
Kia Seltos is armed with enough premium features to take on the competition. Its comes with 10.25 HD touchscreen, Kia’s advanced proprietary UVO connect system, 360-degree camera, AI-based voice command, 8-Speaker Bose Hi-Fi sound system, remote access, sound mood lamp, world’s first connect air-purifier, Geo Fencing, blind-spot monitoring and many other exciting features.
Slated to be launched on August 22, Kia opened the booking on 16th July and received an overwhelming response from the customers and clocked 6,046 (bookings out of which 1,628 bookings are received through the companies online booking system) on the first day. It can be booked online as well as through some of the Kia dealership at a token amount of Rs. 25000. Also, the SUV is expected to reach the showrooms by first or second week of August.
Manohar Bhat, Vice President, and Head – Sales & Marketing, Kia Motors India said, “Getting such an overwhelming response from customers across the 160 cities where we are present, makes us elated. It is a remarkable feat and is a testament to Kia’s unparalleled & extraordinary brand recognition and acceptability in India that our brand campaign has helped us achieve. Our mid-SUV, the Seltos is BSVI compliant from day 1 and is available in both petrol and diesel, with both Manual and Automatic options in all powertrains, it makes it an attractive proposition.”
Let’s hope the SUV delivers the goods as the competition is watching as the Seltos is up against some of the most trusted brands like Hyundai in the country which sells their SUV Creta in huge numbers and is going to launch its the updated version very soon.
