Dimers,

Looking to purchase a SUV priced between 10-15 lacs. Considering the current options, I have narrowed down to KIA Seltos and MG Hector..

Would need your opinion on the two. Have gone through a lot of online comparisons, though would like to hear from end users..

Also, wondering if I should wait till March 2020, though not sure if there are any new cars lined up in this segment..

I have booked kia seltos. If you enjoy ride quality, speed etc prefer seltos. Mg Hector is more of a family car. Also hectors ride quality is not so great in bumper to bumper traffic, in highway it is good. Say, you are on a highway and you wish to overtake car with ease, seltos would be a winner in such case

The every year price increase is nothing but a gimmick to clear old stocks. Read about these on the internet.

The rates applicable are as of the date of invoice generation and not the date of booking.. Even if you book today and pay in Jan, you will have to pay the increased amount in Jan, if it happens.

In this case, there is no stock of cars. People are waiting to get hold of car. So this theory isn’t true for kia

I doubt that.. If you book before 31st Dec, i dont think they will charge the price increase to the customer.. In that case many customers will cancel their booking..

After a lot of reviews, peer feedback received, I am going ahead with Seltos.. Though their variants are super confusing.. Will be visiting the nearest showroom today

Get the one with Bose speakers, ventilated seats, air purifier if you can. These features are actually useful.
Tyre pressure monitor is also good.
Ambient lights look good but you can do without it if you want to save some money.
Heads on display is pretty useless though.
All of these are available in top variant though. Costs around 18.5lakhs.
Not sure if mid variants would include some of the features i listed. Speakers should be there atleast.

This is a standard practice. Nothing specific to Kia. Refer to the tnchttps://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/600262/original/Screenshot_20191228-205535_Chrome.jpg?1577550013

Yes, i confirmed with Kia showroom today.
Price would vary till the time invoicing is done..
So if prices increase after 1st Jan, customer would have to pay extra..
They are stating that sure shot prices will increase in Jan.
