Kia posted a total of 16,111 units in April 2021 as Seltos led the way with 8,086 units ahead of Sonet and Carnival

Kia India has the Seltos and Sonet as its top-selling models in the domestic market while the Carnival is positioned in a more premium space competing against the top-spec Toyota Innova Crysta. The brand debuted back in August 2019 with the Seltos mid-size SUV targeting the likes of Hyundai Creta, Tata Harrier, Nissan Kicks, and MG Hector.

It has so far been successful with it by being the consistent second best-seller in the segment. In the month of April 2021, Kia garnered a cumulative domestic tally of 8,086 units amidst its main rival Hyundai Creta, which it has plenty in common with, heading the SUV sales charts with more than 12,000 unit sales.

The Seltos is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine producing 115 PS maximum power and 144 Nm of peak torque while the 1.5-litre diesel kicks out 115 PS and 250 Nm. The 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol delivers 140 PS and 242 Nm. Recently, the 2021 Kia Seltos debuted in the Indian market with the brand’s new corporate logo and variant rejig.
