Kia entered the Indian market with Seltos and took the Indian car market by storm. The company was successful in giving a tough competition to segment leader Hyundai Creta, which is also Kia’s sister brand. As of now, Kia sells the Seltos, Sonet and Carnival in our country. Find out below upcoming Kia cars in India 2021.
1) Kia Carnival 2021
Kia launched the Carnival in India last Auto Expo in February but the MPV has already received an update now in the overseas market. While Kia may not bring the product soon, customer demand may push the company to bring the new Carnival to India by 2021. The sales response of the Kia Carnival has also been pretty decent given its price and positioning in the market.
The fourth-generation Kia Carnival has a bold look attached to it. Coming straight to the front you observe a lot SUV styling elements present on the new Kia Carnival. Round and soft lines are a thing of the past and have been replaced by squared and strong lines. The front grille also known as the ‘Tiger Nose’ grille looks inspired from the Seltos and fits the brand image of Kia better. Sleek new headlamps and LED DRLs make a welcome appearance. The price range of the new car will be quite similar to the third generation model currently on sale in India.
2) Kia Sorento
Kia Sorento has been around since 2002 in Kia’s lineup and has been evolving in terms of size and performance. While the emission norms have downsized the engines the car has been proved to be a successful product for the Company. For the Year 2021 we are expecting the car to make its way to India.
The Sorento India would go head to head with the Jeep Compass. The price might be in the ballpark of Rs 20 to 35 lakhs. Now the product is not seen in India and there isn’t an idea on what all it will offer but it surely will be at par with the Jeep Compass. Sorento will do some addition to the design seen on the Kia Seltos. The tiger-nose grill is sure to be there and it will have sharper lines and creases to make it look aggressive. The most noticeable characteristic of the vehicle is forward sloping D-pillar and flared wheel arches. More about 3 Upcoming Kia Cars in India 2021 below.
3) Kia Seltos EV/Facelift
Kia Seltos was the first product of the company in India and is still a best seller for the brand. While the EV sector is slowly progressing in India compared to other developed regions, EVs are the inevitable future ahead. Various pollution laws and increasing fuel prices all lead to EV. The Tata Nexon EV is the cheapest EV sold in the Indian market currently. Kia may price the Seltos EV competitively so that people prefer the bigger SUV.
The Kia Seltos electric might be offered with the Hyundai Kona EV sourced 64kWh battery pack with a 204bhp, electric motor or a 56.5kWh battery pack borrowed from the Kia K3 EV. It will deliver a range of around 450km on a single charge on the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) test cycle. Hyundai Creta and other cars in its segment have already received some form of update. The new Kia Seltos 2021 can also be launched quite soon.
