Kia Motors entered Indian market last year and have received an overwhelming response from customers. Their first product Seltos is a huge hit and Kia recently launched Anniversary edition of Seltos in the market. Kia also launched their most affordable SUV Sonet in the market, earlier this year. Just like Seltos, Sonet also became popular among buyers in a very short span of time. Sonet is now a common sight on our roads and number of aftermarket accessories for modifications are also available in the market. Here we have a render video that shows how Sonet would look like, if Kia launches a Nightfall Edition.
The video has been uploaded by SRK Designs on their youtube channel. The Nightfall Edition seen in the video is inspired by Dark Edition of Tata Harrier SUV. The vidoe shows how the car would look in it all-black avatar. This is just a render video and Kia currently has no plans to launch such a version in the market. The render artist starts by changing the colour of the Sonet. It now gets a gloss black finish on the outside.
The chrome garnishes on the front grille have also been completely blacked out. The chrome surround around the LED fog lamps have also been blacked out. The silver colour faux skid plate at the front gets the black treatment too. Artist has also made a minor change to the headlamp. The all-LED headlamps on the SUV were replaced with tri-projector LED units. Heartbeat shaped DRLs is retained in Nightfall edition. All chrome or silver elements on the SUV were either removed or blacked out.
Moving to the side profile, the Sonet Nightfall Edition gets sporty looking gloss black alloy wheels. The stock dual tone alloy wheels regularly seen on Sonet were replaced. The silver beading on the door and the roof rails were also painted in black. The regular version of Sonet gets chrome door handles. This version in the render video gets body coloured door handles only. video does not show, how this SUV looks form the rear however, we guess that the chrome strips and the silver skid plate at the rear have been blacked out. The render version in the video looks quite imposing mainly because of the all-black theme on the car.
