Kia launched the all-new Seltos in the Indian market last year and it sure did create a lot of ripples in the segment. Kia’s second launch in the market was the Carnival, which also became quite popular in the market and attracted a lot of buyers. Kia is now ready to unveil its third product in the Indian market and it will be the all-new Sonet. Kia showcased the concept version of the upcoming car at the 2020 Auto Expo. Here are the pictures showing the production version of the upcoming Sonet.
The pictures from Motoroids show that all-new Kia Sonet and it reveals a lot of details too. The front of the all-new Sonet will be aggressively looking and it will get the signature Tiger nose grille. Kia has already revealed the front of the car through a teaser image. These new images also reveal the side and the rear of the car, which have not been revealed officially by the Korean manufacturer yet.
The Sonet gets a sloping rear windshield that goes quite well with the ribbed roof. The rear windshield meets the lightbar that connects both the tail lamps. The tail lamps are quite big in size and even come to the side of the Sonet. These are split lamps which makes the car look more premium. There is also a gloss black bracket that is extended towards the side of the Sonet. It is ribbed and makes the car look sportier. There is a silver insert in the bumper too and makes the car look much more aggressive.
This seems to be a lower-end variant of the Sonet that offers wheel caps instead of the alloy wheels. On the higher-end versions, Kia might offer dual-tone body colour and of course, the alloy wheels. The quarter glass of the rear windshield is positioned in a unique way, which will ensure that the rear passengers do not feel claustrophobic.
Kia is yet to announce the launch date of the car but the official unveiling will happen on 7th August 2020. The all-new Sonet will take on the like of Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and the likes. The Sonet will also offer the same engine options that are available with the Venue. There will be a naturally aspirated 1.2-litre petrol, turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine option. Hyundai will soon start to offer the iMT transmission with the Venue, it is a clutch-less manual transmission that will be available with the Sonet too.
