Price plays a crucial role in shaping customers’ perceptions of a car’s value. Buyers assess whether the features and qualities offered by a vehicle align with its price tag. If a car is reasonably priced and offers desirable features, customers are more likely to perceive it as a good value proposition. On the other hand, if a car is priced high but lacks comparable features or quality, it may be perceived as overpriced, leading to reduced sales. Striking the right balance between features, quality, and price is essential for maximizing sales. Hopefully, Kia Seltos’ price will be expected to start from 9.99 lacks ex-showroom to 20 lacks ex-showroom.
