In an announcement made on July 15, Kia India said that the company has already received 13,424 bookings for the updated version of the Seltos. Out of these, 1,973 bookings were done using the K-Code which was a special programme to expand the Seltos community by giving existing Seltos owners special access to unlock high-priority delivery for the new potential buyers, a PTI report quoted the car maker as saying.
Kia started the bookings for the updated Seltos on July 14. Managing Director and CEO of Kia India, Tae-Jin said, "We are confident that the new Seltos will reinvent and grow the mid-SUV segment further. Whether its design language, segment-first, and segment-best features, Seltos continues to set newer benchmarks for the industry."
