Bookings for the facelifted Kia Seltos, which was launched in July 2023 with prices starting from Rs 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom), have crossed the 100,000 mark.

According to Kia India, the premium automatic transmission-equipped Seltos variants have emerged as the top choice amongst the buyers for the midsize SUV and account for 50% of the total bookings till date. Also, 80% of buyers have opted for top variants (HTK+ onwards), while over 40% have chosen ADAS variants reflecting the growing awareness of advanced active safety features.

Since the Seltos’ market entry in August 2019, Kia India has manufactured over 600,000 of them, with nearly 75% sold in the domestic market.
