The Kia Seltos was Kia’s first car in the Indian car market and it was an instant success due to its features and aggressive design. The Seltos single-handled made Kia a popular brand in India.

The Duster was one of the first cars to be launched in this segment. The car has been on sale in India for nearly a decade now. Renault didn’t bring the facelift or second-generation of the Duster to India, which has affected its sales as it lacks a lot of features over the competition. The Duster though is known more for its rugged nature than its features. The pricing of the Duster starts from Rs 11.49 lakhs and goes to Rs 16.86 lakhs (on-road Mumbai).
