India’s first modified Kia Sonet wears tasteful 16 inch alloy wheels

Kia launched the all-new Sonet in the market recently and the car is already receiving great feedback from the market. The Sonet has become the best-selling vehicle in the segment, as per the dispatch numbers revealed by the manufacturer. Kia started accepting the official bookings way ahead of the price announcement and the deliveries, which is why the deliveries have begun in large numbers in various Indian cities. With so many Sonet customers taking the delivery, here is the first Kia Sonet with aftermarket alloy wheels and it looks quite interesting.

The pictures have been posted by GaadiWaadi and show the new alloy wheels on a brand-new Kia Sonet, which is still unregistered. The black coloured Sonet HTX+ here gets the aftermarket alloy wheels that sure make the vehicle look different and much more aggressive. These are 16-inch, all-black alloy wheels that make the stance of the vehicle even better than the stock.

Kia has announced that there are more than 35,000 bookings on the Sonet, which makes it one of the most popular cars in the market. There is likely to be a waiting period of a few weeks due to the rise in demand. However, the exact waiting period depends on the location and the variant colour option that you choose. The buyer must have exchanged the stock alloy wheels to get a discount and that’s what many car buyers do to enhance the look of their vehicles.

Due to the high demand for the Sonet, there is likely a high number of dispatches for the next few months. The Sonet has as many as 17 variants, which allows the customers to choose from the wide range of options present in their portfolio.

The Sonet gets three engine options. There is a 1.2-litre petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 82 Bhp and a peak torque of 115 Nm. There is also a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine produces a maximum power of 118 Bhp and peak torque of 172 Nm. The 1.5-litre diesel engine is available in two states of tunes. The Tech Line variants will draw a maximum of 99 Bhp while the top-end GTX+ will get 113 Bhp from this same engine.

Just like the Seltos, the Sonet is divided into two major groups – Tech Line and GT Line. The GT Line variants are loaded with features and also look very aggressive compared to the Tech Line variants. There are five different trim levels in the Tech Line variant while only one variant with the GT Line.
