Kia Seltos scores a hat-trick as the bestselling SUV in India in March. The company had sold 7,466 units of the Seltos SUV in India last month. However, the sales for the Seltos dropped by 47 per cent last month as compared to 14,024 units sold in India in February 2020. This steep drop in sales is attributed to nationwide lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic. That said, the car sales in India will be affected this month as well due to the ongoing lockdown till 14 April.

Its competitor, MG sold 1,402 units of the Hector in India in March 2020. Kia Seltos was launched on India in August 2019 with BS6 powertrain options, which includes - a 1.5-litre petrol engine with either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT automatic unit, a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed DCT unit, and a 1.5-litre diesel engine that is paired with a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission. The 1.5-litre petrol motor puts out 115bhp/114Nm while the diesel is good for 155bhp/250Nm. On the other hand, the 1.4-litre petrol engine delivers 140bhp/242Nm.
