Kia Sonet X-Line: Changes Over the Regular Sonet
The highlight of the Kia Sonet X-Line is its exclusive Matte Graphite paint which really makes it stand out as no other colour offered in the Sonet gets a matt finish. It takes inspiration from the Seltos X-Line, which uses the same finish. Kia has altogether skipped the chrome elements in the X-Line trim and it gets a gloss black finish for the front grille. As the changes on the special edition are mostly cosmetic, the ORVMs along with the front and rear skid plate get a piano black finish.
Apart from this, the fog lamp housing also gets a dark chrome treatment, thereby completing the changes on the front profile. Moving to the side, the new 16-inch crystal cut alloy wheels with black high gloss treatment are the only visible upgrade, while the chrome elements on the door handles and window garnish remain the same. The X-Line logo is slapped on the right side of the tailgate and everything else remains more or less the same.
Inside the cabin, the X-Line is awarded an all-new Splendid Sage dual-tone theme. The leather upholstery on the seats with contrast orange stitching definitely makes a case for itself. The same theme is continued on the door pads and the X-Line logo is embroidered on the headrests.
As the X-Line is based on the top-of-the-line GTX+, the SUV gets all the bells and whistles such as Crown Jewel LED headlamps with DRLs, projector fog lamps, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bose premium 7 speaker system with sound mood lights, front ventilated seats, connected car tech, smart air purifier, remote engine start and more. In terms of safety features, the X-Line is kitted with six airbags, ABS, ESC (Electronic Stability Control), HAC (Hill Assist Control), VSM (Vehicle Stability Management), Brake Assist, and front and rear parking sensors amongst others.
