Kia Sonet is actually one of the most popular sub-4 meter compact SUV in the country. It was launched in the market last year post lockdown and quickly became popular among buyers for its looks. There is a decent amount of waiting period on this SUV even today. Kia also launched the updated 2021 version of Kia Seltos and Sonet in the market with new logo and feature updates in the market. The compact SUV competes with cars like Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 in the segment. We have seen several modified examples of Kia Sonet so far. Here we have India’s first Kia Sonet that gets a bright orange wrap along with other modifications.
The video has been uploaded by Matuva Brothers on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger talks about all the modification that he has done to the exterior of the car. The main attraction on this Sonet is the wrap itself. This is the base HTE variant which does not come with many features that Sonet is actually known for. The vlogger who is also the owner mentions that, he wanted to customise the car as per his liking and that is why he opted for this trim.
He bought SUV in Intense Red shade and got it wrapped completely in bright Orange coloured wrap. The wrap job actually looks pretty neat and this shade is definitely a head turner. Vlogger can be heard saying in the video that, it is a shade that people might like or dislike but, it will be hard for anyone to actually ignore it. The colour just pops out in the crowd.
After getting the SUV wrapped, he also got the front grille wrapped in gloss black to resemble with the higher trims. The HTE variant does not offer fog lamps. So the owner bought original Kia Sonet projector fog lamps and got it installed. Othe modification that the owner went for are the wheels. The base version comes with 15 inch steel rims. He upgraded it to 16 inch and also bought a dual tone wheel cover that looks like an alloy wheel.
He also got a roof rail and shark fin antenna installed on the car. He can be heard saying in the video that he has bought some accessories like spoiler and front and rear bumper guard which he will only be installing after the current lockdown is lifted. He also has installed chrome door handle garnishes and rain visors. He plans to install a chrome lower window garnish as well.
Overall, the work done on this Sonet looks pretty neat. The wrap however is something that the vlogger personally liked and there might be other people who will have a different opinion. Kia Sonet is available with three different engine options. There is a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine. It is available with a manual gearbox only. The next is a 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine that comes with manual and automatic transmission. The 1.0 litre turbo petrol engine is available with iMT and DCT gearbox options.
