Kia Seltos Selling Prices In Malaysia Confirmed

Will it be Naza Kia or will it be Berjaya to launch it?

Here comes a new year (2021) and the Kia Seltos is still not launched in Malaysia despite being previewed months ago at the Naza Automall in Petaling Jaya. The delay has been due to a number of factors, including Covid-19 and the uncertainty surrounding the continuation of Naza Kia as the brand guardian for Kia in Malaysia.

Kia History

Please note that Naza Kia was the first Malaysian company to introduce the Kia brand years ago and their first ever launch was the first Kia Sportage compact SUV. Soon after it was the highly successful Kia Sephia which was a direct rival to the evergreen Proton Wira. Then came a series of Kia models which were launched in Malaysia with success and the brand grew very fast in Malaysia. Faster than some Japanese brands and with selling prices that were very hard to ignore.   

Kia Rumors 

Now, fast forward to 2021 and there are a string of rumors that the Kia brand will move from Naza Kia to Berjaya Auto (Bermaz) just like what happened to the Peugeot brand moving from Nasim to Berjaya Auto Alliance last month. 

Meanwhile we have just been shared the selling prices for this Kia Seltos.
