The Kia Seltos will be going on sale in Mexico starting in January 2020.

Here's the news from Publimetro, please note this article was translated into English.


KIA Seltos is the brand's commitment to continue penetrating the market with sales volume. Without a doubt, it will be the ace up its sleeve to participate in the market that is growing more internationally. And that in Mexico is no exception.

The copy will arrive in a privileged position between Sportage and Soul, two family vehicles very well accepted by the Mexican consumer. And while there are no other specifications of this model, we can assure.

The segment grows and the brand needs rivals to contend with this market. Therefore, you will incorporate this copy. That will seek not to eat the sales of Soul or Sportage, and the truth is that there is room to think about it, since Soul is a minivan, not an SUV.

Mechanically we will have an entry version that takes advantage of the 2-liter with which Forte is presented, and that the box is the IVT of the brand. It is speculated that the additional excitement will take advantage of a 1.6-liter 1.6-liter turbo petrol with double clutch housing, but it will have to be seen.

In safety 6 airbags, stability control, traction and ABS brakes. While the car will be imported from India. In infotainment we will have to wait for the national specification, which must be worked in detail.

Price Expectation

Soul starts in 287 thousand 500 pesos and Sportage in 385 thousand 900. Surely Seltos will arrive with an entry version in this difference, something like 340 thousand pesos. And with versions that exceed 400 thousand.
Competition: SEAT Arona, Chevrolet Trax, Ford EcoSport, Hyundai Crete, Toyota CH-R, Volkswagen T-Cross, Mazda CX-3 and others.
