There are absolutely no cosmetic or mechanical updates in the SUV while it will continue to be sold in a total of 18 variants. The two trim levels - GT Line and Tech Line - are retained. It has been learned that it has already crossed the 1 Lakh units booking milestone with over 45,000 units being sold since its launch in August 2019.

Kia Seltos was India's best-selling SUV in the months of October & November 2019, however, Seltos sales dropped considerably in December.

The SUV has some really worthy contenders in the Indian market in the form of Hyundai Creta, Tata Harrier, Nissan Kicks, Renault Captur and MG Hector.
