Kia Sonet is one of the most popular sub-4 meter compact SUVs in the segment. It has been in the market for couple of years and it competes with cars like Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger, Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300 in the segment. It became popular among buyers for its bold looks and feature loaded cabin. There are several modification options available for Sonet and we have seen some of them on our website recently. Here we have one such brand new Kia Sonet SUV which looks mean with matte PPF and aftermarket alloy wheels.
The video has been uploaded by Doctor Mohammed Abdullah on his YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger starts video from his home where he is seen going to the Kia dealership in his old car to take delivery of the Sonet. He finishes the paperwork and takes the delivery of the car with his family members. The vlogger has opted for the Kia Sonet in Aurora Black shade and it is HTX Plus variant which is a higher spec model which comes with company fitted alloy wheels, LED DRLs and LED headlamps. After taking the delivery, vlogger takes his car to a garage that belongs to his friend for PPF coating.

The owner opted for matte finish PPF which was looking absolutely good on the car. The matte finish PPF coating on the gloss black SUV changed the overall look of the car. From a premium looking SUV, it transformed into a sporty looking SUV. The front grille which comes with chrome outlines was removed and finished in gloss black. All the chrome elements like on the door handles, lower window garnish and the fog lamps were finished in black.
Other than this, the silver inserts on the front and rear bumper have been replaced with Yellow coloured stickers. This gives the Kia Sonet a sporty appeal. The whole process of installing PPF on the car took almost 4 days and the process is shown in the video as well. After getting the PPF coating, the owner collects the vehicle from the workshop and goes to another shop to get the alloy wheels changed. The variant that the vlogger bought came with dual tone alloy wheels but, it looks like he was not satisfied with them.
He then replaced the stock wheels on this Kia Sonet with an aftermarket alloy wheel. The new alloy wheels were also finished in dual-tone but, they came with a different design. The PPF and the alloy wheels along with dechromed bits completely changed the look of the car and it now looks a lot more sporty. Kia Sonet is available with three engine options. Kia recently launched the 2022 version of Sonet in the market. The SUV is now available in two new colour options and also gets feature update and minor cosmetic changes. There is a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine with manual gearbox, 1.5 litre turbo diesel engine with manual and automatic transmission and a 1.0 litre turbo petrol engine that comes with 6-speed manual, 6-speed iMT and a 7-speed DCT gearbox option.
