Kia Vehicles Recognised for Low Maintenance Costs and Strong Value Proposition


A recent Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Benchmark analysis by Frost & Sullivan, a leading Indian growth advisory firm, highlights the exceptional value offered by Kia vehicles. The study reveals that Kia’s best-selling models, the Seltos and Carens, boast segment-leading low maintenance expenses across both diesel and petrol variants.

Kia Carens: A Leader in Family Mobility Value

The Kia Carens emerges as a frontrunner in the family mover segment. Its ownership costs are demonstrably lower, with petrol and diesel variants offering a significant 21% and 26% reduction in maintenance expenses, respectively. Notably, the Carens diesel boasts the segment’s lowest acquisition cost, making it a compelling choice for cost-conscious customers.  Furthermore, the Kia Carens diesel models rank near the top in terms of fuel efficiency, solidifying its position as a premium family car with exceptional value.

Seltos: Balancing Low Maintenance with Strong TCO

Kia’s best-selling Seltos also shines in the area of maintenance costs. Petrol variants deliver a minimum 17% saving compared to the industry average, solidifying Kia’s commitment to affordability. Additionally, the Kia Seltos diesel shares the segment lead for low maintenance costs. In terms of overall TCO, the Seltos remains highly competitive, securing the second-best position for its diesel variant and the third-best for petrol.

Building on a Legacy of Value

This recognition by Frost & Sullivan builds upon Kia’s December 2023 achievement, where the Kia Sonet was acknowledged for boasting the best maintenance costs within the Compact SUV segment. This trend underscores Kia’s commitment to providing class-leading products that excel in technology, design, and quality. Coupled with Kia’s globally acclaimed after sales services, these factors contribute to a compelling value proposition for customers, making Kia a wise investment for both present and future needs.
