Kia Motors unveiled their all-new sub-4 meter compact SUV in the market few weeks ago. The SUV is brands third product and will compete with the likes of Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon and Ford EcoSport in the segment. Kia Motors has already started accepting bookings for the SUV. On the very first day, Kia had received 6,523 bookings across the country through dealerships and official website. The booking amount for the Sonet is Rs 25,000. Kia will be launching it later next month but the car has already been spotted on the road couple of times.Here we have another spy video that shows Sonet on road without any camouflage.
The video has been uploaded by Abhinia Auto Vlogs – Abhishek Saini on his youtube channel. The video simply shows the new Kia Sonet being driven on road without any camouflage on it. The variant seen in video is likely to be a top-end trim with 1.0 litre, turbo petrol engine option. The engine badge and iMT gearbox badge was visible in the video.
The Sonet in the video gets a white paint job which looks very premium of the car with black cladding around the car. The Headlamps are all LED, similarly, the front grille also gets gloss finish. It gets turn indicators integrated on the ORVMs, roof rails and towards the rear, it has the all LED tail lamps with crystal shaped elements inside. The reflector strip running between the lamps can also be seen.
The faux skid plate and the front and the rear gives it more of an SUV look. The only odd looking thing on the car was blacked out steel wheels. It seems like the vlogger has spotted a test vehicle which was running on a different set of tyres. On the inside, Kia Sonet offers a host of features. It gets touchscreen infotainment screen, ventilated seats for front passengers, UVO connect, air purifier, rear AC vents, electric sunroof and so on.
Kia Sonet will come with three engine options. A 1.0 litre turbo petrol engine that gets manual, 7-speed DCT and iMT gearbox options. The 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine gets a manual transmission and the 1.5 litre diesel comes with manual and automatic gearbox option.
