Kia Motors has sold over one lakh units of the Sonet subcompact SUV in India since its debut in September last year, a remarkable feat.
Notably, the top-tier variations accounted for 64% of total sales, while the linked variant and iMT models were chosen by 30% and 26% of consumers, respectively.
The vehicle is available with three petrol and diesel engine choices.
It rides on 16-inch wheels and has all-LED illumination
The Kia Sonet has a powerful appearance with a sculpted bonnet, a chrome-outlined grille, a huge blacked-out air dam, LED headlights, and LED DRLs.
Roof rails, black B-pillars, indicator-mounted ORVMs, and 16-inch alloy wheels adorn the flanks.
The rear part includes a shark fin antenna, a roof-mounted spoiler, and wrap-around LED taillights joined by a strip.
There are three engine options available
The Kia Sonet is powered by a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine (81hp/115Nm), a 1.0-liter turbo-petrol engine (117hp/172Nm), and a 1.5-liter diesel engine (99hp/240Nm). A 5-speed manual, a 6-speed iMT, a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed torque converter, and a 7-speed DCT gearbox perform transmission tasks.
There are six airbags for your protection
The Kia Sonet has a roomy 5-seater interior with heated leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a sunroof, automated temperature control, and parking sensors.
It also has seven speakers and a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
Six airbags, a rear-view camera, and ABS with EBD are provided for the protection of the passengers.
How much will it set you back?
The Kia Sonet begins at Rs. 6.89 lakh for the entry-level HTE model and rises to Rs. 13.55 lakh for the GTX+ Diesel (Automatic/Dual-tone) variant in India (both prices, ex-showroom).
