2023 Kia Seltos Facelift 5

Bookings for the 2023 Kia Seltos Facelift will begin on July 14 and prices will be revealed later this month in India

Kia India has today unveiled the facelifted Seltos in the domestic market and its bookings will commence on July 14 ahead of the price announcement by the end of this month. The deliveries will begin soon after the announcement of the prices and compared to the outgoing model, it comes with a myriad of revisions inside and out to bring a refreshed vibe all around.

The Seltos has been pivotal in the brand becoming the fifth-largest car producer in the country in a short span of four years. The South Korean auto major has surpassed five lakh unit sales with the midsize SUV in India and close to one million units of the five-seater have been retailed globally. One in ten Kia cars sold across the globe is claimed to carry the Seltos badge.

The facelifted Kia Seltos has been available in the international markets since late last year and it made its debut at the Busan Motor Show. It has finally been revealed in India with a host of cosmetic revisions and an upgraded equipment list comprising technologies including Level 2 ADAS with 17 features such as Blind Spot Monitoring, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Keep Assist.
