In Russia, sales of new KIA Seltos crossover started


On March 2nd, Russian KIA dealers began the sales of the new compact Seltos crossover, the production of which was launched at the Kaliningrad plant Avtotor. The cost of new items will range from 1 million 099 thousand 900 rubles to 1 million 999 thousand 900 rubles, depending on the configuration and power unit, the press service of the Korean brand informed.

Cars with a 2.0 MPI engine (149 hp) and the new Smartstream IVT V-chain CVT with front-wheel drive will be available in Luxe, Style or Prestige trim levels, and all-wheel drive in Style, Prestige and Premium. The most powerful (177 hp) 1.6 T-GDI turbocharged engine with direct fuel injection is aggregated only with a 7DCT robotic transmission. All Seltos 1.6 T-GDIs are equipped with all-wheel drive and it will be available in Prestige, Premium and Premium + trim levels.

According to Denis Tsepelev, KIA brand director at Alarm Motors, the entry to the Seltos model is intended to strengthen KIA’s position in general and in the Russian SUV segment, in particular. The novelty will not compete in the KIA line, but, on the contrary, it will attract new buyers in the SUV segment.

The modern appearance and excellent technical equipment of Seltos in combination with a competitive pricing policy allows us to assume the leadership positions of the new model in its segment. KIA Seltos sales volumes will depend on the distributor’s production plans. According to “Pragmatika Group” estimation, the new Seltos could potentially occupy up to 25-30% of the total KIA sales and should contribute to the growth of interest in the brand by 25 years old motorists.
