The Kia Seltos has turned out to be a very successful product for the South Korean automaker, not only in India but globally as well. With the help of Seltos alone, Kia Motors was able to position itself as the fourth-best-selling car brand in India during the month of November last year. For a brief period, the Seltos even held the crown of the largest selling utility vehicle in the Indian market.

In other news, the Autralian-spec Kia Seltos was awarded five-stars in the crash-test performed by ANCAP. The compact SUV scored 85 per cent in adult occupant protection, 83 per cent in child occupant protection, 61 per cent in vulnerable road user protection and 70 per cent in safety assist categories. Though the crash-test performed on the Australian-spec Kia Seltos does not apply on the India-spec version, they do paint a positive picture for the SUV as fas as its safety quotient is concerned.
