The Kia Seltos is not a direct competition to the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. However, the compact SUV can be a feasible option to consider as it comes loaded with new-age features. The SUV has become one of the most popular SUVs in the country. The SUV was first launched in 2019. The updated model of the SUV went on sale earlier this year. It is available for sale in three engine options - 1.5-litre Smartstream naturally aspirated petrol, a 1.4-litre T-GDI turbocharged petrol, and a 1.5-litre CRDi VGT diesel engine. The compact SUV is priced between Rs. 9.95 lakh, going up to Rs. 17.65 lakh (ex-showroom).
Like the Seltos, the Hyundai Creta is also not a direct rival to the Maruti Ertiga. It is one of the most favourite compact SUVs among Indian car buyers. The new-generation Creta is packed with new-age technology. Like the Venue and the top models, the Creta is also a connected car with Hyundai's BlueLink connectivity technology. The Creta SUV is priced at Rs. 9.99 lakh to Rs. 17.70 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
