Thoughts On The Kia Seltos Bookings
The Kia Seltos has clearly received an overwhelming response in the Indian market, even before being launched. Positioned in the mid-size SUV segment, the Kia Seltos will be priced competitively; rivalling the likes of the Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier, Hyundai Creta and the MG Hector.
Kia Motors is all set to introduce its first SUV in the Indian market, the Seltos. The upcoming SUV will go on sale in India from the 22nd of August, with bookings for the Seltos having already begun 20 days back, on the 16th of July.
