Price Hike! Kia Seltos Dearer By Upto Rs 35000!

This is the first price hike since the Seltos was launched in August 2019

  • Tech line variants get a hike of Rs 20,000 to Rs 35,000 on the ex-showroom price.
  • Kia has also increased the prices of the GT Line variants by Rs 30,000.
  • The updated pricing is already in effect from January 2.
  • Currently, the Kia Seltos is priced from Rs 9.89 lakh to Rs 16.29 lakh (ex-showroom India).

It is safe to say that Kia did its homework before setting foot in India. The Seltos has been a runaway hit and arguably, the most successful car to debut last year. So much so that it made Kia the sixth biggest carmaker in India with respect to volumes. Now though, Kia Motors has hiked the prices of the Seltos from Rs 20,000 to Rs 35,000 depending upon the variant.

Here’s how the Seltos is priced now:

Variant Price Hike New Price Range (ex-showroom)
All other variants
Rs 20,000
Rs 30,000
Rs 9.89 lakh to Rs 15.34 lakh
All variants
Rs 35,000
Rs 35,000
All variants Rs 30,000 Rs 13.79 lakh to Rs 16.29 lakh

The Tech line variants powered by the petrol engine get a price hike of Rs 30,000 ( except for the base HTE which gets a hike of Rs 20,000). The Tech line variants with the 1.5-litre diesel engine, on the other hand sees an increase of Rs 35,000 (including the GTX+ AT diesel). The range-topping GT line variants with 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine is subject to a Rs 30,000 hike.

Thanks to a leaked document that surfaced online, we had already got an idea of the price hike and what to expect. The document also revealed that customers would have to pay the difference in price at the dealership even if the bookings were made in 2019. This has also turned out to be true and if you have already made a booking for the SUV, you are now required to pay the premium depending on the variant. 

The Kia Seltos can be had with three BS6-compliant powertrains:  a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine and 1.5-litre diesel and petrol engines. It comes with four transmission options: a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic, CVT and A 7-speed DCT. Primary rivals include the Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, and the Tata Harrier.
