Kia Seltos was the company’s first model and due to this the company has strengthened its business in India. The South Korean carmaker entered the Indian market with the Seltos mid-size SUV in August 2019 and has been doing well since then. Kia India has become the first carmaker to achieve this feat in the shortest time.
Kia Seltos is the company’s most popular model and in this case the company has increased the price. The price of Kia Seltos has been hiked twice this year but whether this affects its sales or not, it remains to be seen.
