Hey everyone, I wanted to start a thread to keep track of all the information regarding the Seltos' pricing.

Since the Kia Seltos was officially revealed on June 20th, Kia has not officially released the starting price for the international market. However, news outlets in India have been speculating what the price range could be for the Seltos.

AutoCar India expects the price range to between Rs 11-17 lakh (ex-showroom), which is roughly $15,822.95 to $24,453.65 US.
India Today expects the price range to be between Rs 10-16 lakh (ex-showroom), which is roughly $14,375.00 to $23,000.00 US.
Overdrive India expects the price range to be between Rs 15-21 lakh (on road), which is roughly $21,562.50 to $30,187.50 US.

For the North American Market, Car and Driver expects the Seltos to be the same size as the Hyundai Kona. If that's the case it's possible that the Seltos could have a starting price of around $19,240 like the Kona.

From my understanding, the ex-showroom price for Indian car sales doesn't include fees like registration, insurance, and road tax. While the on road price does.

Kelley Blue Book predicts that the Seltos' price will be between the Soul and the Sportage which makes sense. It should be around the same price as the Venue.

While pricing has yet to be announced, we expect the new Seltos to start under $20,000. For reference, the Kia Soul starts at $17,490, while the larger Sportage starts at $23,990.

When Kia itself says in their unveiling that it will be under $22,000 to start, I am inclined to believe something close to that. The Venue is 13" shorter than the Seltos so an entirely different segment. I have seen the Venue at the dealers and it is nice, but very small at 159" long.

I don't know how KBB arrived at that guess, but it is not realistic.
Here is some typical pricing on the Venue......

Great link from Car Gurus @bicepeak. I think the CX-30 is going to the biggest competitor for the Seltos so it's definitely a good comparable in terms of price.
