Kia is going to officially launch its new Sonet in the Indian market on 7 August 2020. However, before this, Kia has released its teaser pictures, due to which we have got a lot of information about what the car looks like. The new Sonet was introduced at the 2020 Auto Expo as a concept vehicle. Not only this, the production version of Kia Sonet will also be no different than the concept and some changes will be seen in it.
The new Kia Sonet is an affordable car from the company and will feature a signature tiger nose grille at its front. Along with this, all-LED headlamps will be given in it which will give it a premium look. The vehicle will get hardbeat inspired DRLs.
Kia Sonet’s cabin information has not been revealed, but the company will offer a flat-bottom steering wheel and a large 10.25-inch infotainment system that will be equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Kia will also include a long list of features in its vehicle and it will be given the first features of the segment, which will also include a 360-degree camera.
The new sub-4 meter compact SUV will get three engine options, which we get to see in Venue. In this, the company will give a 1.2 liter naturally aspirated petrol engine which will be in its lower variants and in higher variants the company will include a 1.0 liter turbocharged petrol engine. A 1.5 liter engine can be given in diesel variants. Kia may also include an intelligent manual transmission (iMT) in its vehicle and a regular manual transmission with a new Sonet with 7-speed DCT.
The new Sonet is the company’s third car to be launched in the Indian market.
