Owner de-chromes Kia Sonet

Kia Sonet is one of the recently launched sub-4 meter compact SUV in the country. It competes with the likes of Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 and the Nissan Magnite which is the latest entrant in the segment. Kia Sonet quickly became popular like Seltos and is now commonly spotted on our roads. Aftermarket accessories have already reached the market and people have even started making modifications to their taste.  We have seen several modified examples of Kia Sonet from different parts of the country and here we have another Sonet that looks gorgeous after making slight modifications.

The images of this modified Kia Sonet has been shared by robin._.fx on his Instagram page. Kia Sonet is an extremely good looking SUV in the sub-4 meter segment. The owner had only made subtle changes to enhance the look of this SUV. Kia Sonet is available in Aurora Black pearl shade and the whole has bought it in that colour. In stock version, Sonet gets a faux silver coloured skid plate on the bumper and there are chrome garnishes around the front grille, fog lamps and even at the rear. All those elements on the Sonet have been completely blacked out to give it an aggressive. The car has been completely dechromed including the chrome window garnish.

Other than this, the stock machine cut dual tone alloy wheels have been replaced with a much sportier looking multi spoke alloy wheel. This has also helped enhance the overall look and feel of the car. No other changes can be seen on the car. Just like Kia Seltos, the demand for Sonet has also gone up in the last couple of months. The demand is so high that, some variants even have a waiting period as long as 5 months.

Kia had showcased, the concept of this SUV at the Auto Expo and they launched the production version in the market couple of months ago. The Kia and Hyundai Venue share the same platform and offer almost same features. Kia Sonet being the latest vehicle among both offers few features more. Kia Sonet offers features like ventilated seats, Bose premium music system, huge 10.25 inch touchscreen infotainment screen, all LED headlamps and remote engine start option using the key fob.

It is a feature loaded SUV and offers features like traction control, ABS, cruise control, electric sunroof, rear AC vents, UVO connected car features and so on. Just like Seltos, Sonet is also available with two variants – Tech Line and GT Line. Tech Line is the regular version and the GT Line is the sportier looking version with red accents at several places both on the outside and inside.
