Turning five in August this year, Kia has had a memorable journey in India, rising to become one of the best-selling car brands that is revered for its premium approach. In a rather short period, Kia has managed to leave an indelible mark on the market, especially in the SUV segment. Leaving behind veteran automakers such as Honda, Renault, Nissan and Volkswagen, Kia has risen to glory. With products like the Seltos, Sonet, Carens and EV6 taking forward the brand’s flambeau of success, the carmaker managed to rule over 6.3 percent of the entire market in the month of June which has proven to be quite a stagnant month with low consumer demand and huge piled up stocks. Nonetheless, Kia still finished as the sixth best-selling car brand of the month, with the Sonet bringing glory, despite other models registering declining year-on-year figures. Here’s a complete list of the best-selling Kia cars in June 2024.

Kia Sonet

Turning four in September this year, Kia Sonet’s success story is no less than a wonder. Hailed as one of India’s most loved compact SUVs, the Sonet has managed to sell over 3.6 lakh units; a feat that is rarely achieved in this time frame. What makes the Kia Sonet a raging success in the segment, is its modern yet sporty looks, which are offered along with a host of premium features and well-refined engine choices that come onboard a package that is aggressively priced. And now with the all-new Kia Sonet facelift in place, the SUV’s popularity has seen a sudden spurt of growth thanks to the SUV’s updated looks, a few new features, better safety standards and the return of the diesel manual. Coming to monthly sales, with the facelift working wonders, the Sonet managed to sell 9,816 units in June 2024, with a strong 27 percent year-on-year growth. With this, the Sonet finished as the best-selling Kia car of the month in addition to being the fifth best-selling compact SUV of the month.

Transmission options on the Sonet include a six-speed iMT or a seven-speed DCT for the turbo petrol, a five-speed manual for the naturally aspirated petrol, and a six-speed manual or torque converter automatic for the diesel.

Kia Seltos

With the Seltos facelift working wonders for the brand, the SUV has once again gotten back its turbo-petrol engine, and that too in a bigger 1.5-litre avatar, along with smart yet significant cosmetic changes and a bunch of new features. All this has helped the SUV capitalise on its popularity to regain its charm as one of India’s most loved SUVs. Registering fairly good sales in June, the Kia Seltos managed to sell 6,306 units in June 2024 with an impressive 76 percent growth in terms of year-on-year numbers, compared to the 3,578 units the SUV sold in the same month last year. Nonetheless, the SUV still managed to become the second best-selling Kia car of the month, in addition to being the fifth best-selling SUV of the month.

With the facelift boosting the Seltos’s already attractive package, the SUV comes with a bigger and better 1.5-litre turbo-petrol unit that comes mated to a 6-speed iMT or a 7-speed DCT, along with a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol offered with 6-speed manual or a CVT automatic and a 1.5-litre diesel engine with 6-speed iMT or 6-speed torque-convertor automatic.

Kia Carens

Kia’s response to the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, the Kia Carens has proven its mantle quite well. Recently turning two, the Kia Carens’ success story has already created ripples in the market, thanks to its modern looks, a host of premium features, and a better appeal in terms of overall cabin comfort and looks than all the other competitors. Selling 5,154 units in June 2024, the Kia Carens, despite registering a 36 percent decline in terms of year-on-year growth, still closed in as the second best-selling Kia car of the month, with a great run ahead. In fact, the success of the Carens is such that it has already become one of the biggest contributors to Kia’s aggregate sales, in addition to being one of India’s best-selling seven-seater cars.

In terms of powertrains, the Carens is offered with three engines that include a 1.5-litre petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual, a new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol mated with a six-speed iMT/seven-speed DCT, and a 1.5-litre diesel that comes mated with an iMT gearbox or a six-speed automatic transmission.

Kia EV6

The Korean automaker’s first all-electric crossover in India, the Kia EV6 is a capable option in the premium electric segment. The EV6 is expensive, but it makes up for it through its exhilarating performance, premium cabin, top-notch features and great comfort. Considering that Kia had pitched the EV6 as a limited unit offering, it seems as if Kia has almost sold all allocated units. This is the reason why the EV6 sold only 24 units in June 2024 with a massive 45 percent decline in year-on-year performance.

In terms of battery and performance, Kia has offered the India-spec EV6 with a 77.4kWh battery pack that comes with two powertrain choices including a single-motor rear-wheel drive, and a dual motor all-wheel drive (325PS and 605Nm) setup. The EV6 offers an ARAI-claimed range of up to 708 km, which makes the EV6 a worthy buy, despite its hefty price tag.
