Kia Seltos Is The Best Selling SUV In October 2021 In India

Kia retails the Seltos at a base price of Rs 9.95 lakh, going all the way up to Rs 18.10 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom) for the new X-Line variant

Since its launch back in mid-2019, the Kia Seltos has been one of the top-selling SUVs in the country. However, the mid-size SUV segment has witnessed a range of new launches in recent times, and the buyer now has a lot of options to choose from. Nonetheless, the Kia Seltos is still a very strong contender, and the SUV proved its worth on last month’s sales charts.
