Car manufacturers are gearing up with new models for the upcoming year, with Kia Motors leading the charge. Over the past few years, Kia has strengthened its position in the SUV segment with its Seltos and Sonet models, and now the company is set to launch some new models, including electric cars.

According to sources close to the company, Kia’s Seltos and Sonet are selling well in the SUV segment, but the company wants to strengthen its position in other segments as well. To achieve this, Kia is launching the Kia Carnival and EV9. Both of these cars are set to be launched next year, and there is already a lot of buzz surrounding them.

The arrival of the Kia Carnival will bring tough competition for the Ertiga and Innova, although they differ significantly in terms of features and specifications. All three cars are seven-seaters, but the Ertiga leads in terms of sales, while the Innova is known for its performance. It is speculated that the arrival of the Carnival could challenge the market for these two models, although it may not be as easy as it sounds.

Kia Motors’ plan is to create cars according to the new demand and attract the younger generation. In line with this strategy, the company has chosen to start 2023 by launching the facelifted versions of its top sellers, the Seltos and Sonet. These cars are equipped with all the features essential for today’s times and are being well received by customers.

The recently launched Sonet comes in HTE, HTX, HTX+, HTK, HTK+, GTX+, and X-Line variants, with prices varying based on the variant. The price of the car has not been announced, but it is expected to start at around eight lakh rupees ex-showroom. If you are considering buying one, you can wait for the booking to start in three days. It is anticipated that, like the Seltos, the booking for the Sonet will also be fast and furious.

In the last, Kia Motors seems to be all set to conquer the Indian car market with its new models and revamped versions of its existing bestsellers. The upcoming year will certainly be an interesting one for car enthusiasts and customers alike as they wait for these exciting new releases from Kia.
