Kia Seltos Facelift Crosses 1 Lakh Booking Mark In 6 Months

Kia India launched the facelifted Seltos in July 2023, with a refreshed design, upgraded features, enhanced safety and a new 1.5-litre turbo-petrol mill. Recently, the refreshed mid-size SUV surpassed the one lakh bookings mark.

These Variants Are In High Demand

According to Kia, 80 per cent of Seltos buyers have opted for the variants fitted with a panoramic sunroof. Meanwhile, 40 per cent of buyers have chosen the ADAS-equipped variants. On the other hand, half of the total bookings are for the automatic gearbox variants. Furthermore, there remains strong demand for the diesel-powered version, comprising 42 per cent of overall bookings.

This tremendous response for the Seltos can be attributed to several factors, like attractive design, feature-rich cabin, varied powertrain options, strong brand image and positive reviews from automotive experts and existing Seltos owners.
