11 Aug 2020 | International News : India


Kia Motors Corporation, one of the world's largest automakers, has revealed the Kia Sonet to the world in a digital presentation. Manufactured at Kia's state-of-the-art production facility at Andhra Pradesh, India, the Sonet is Kia's all new smart urban compact SUV and the brand's latest made in India global product after the Seltos.

The new Sonet marks Kia's entry into the burgeoning compact SUV segment, and sets new benchmarks with its first-in-class features.

The 'heart beat' LED lights also adorn the tail lamps
The all new Sonet incorporates Kia's DNA of emotive styling along with a premium and youthful appeal to create a strong road presence.

This includes a fresh interpretation of Kia's signature 'tiger-nose' grille, flanked by 'heart beat' LED daytime running lights, shaped like the electric pulse of a heart, with a stylish front skid plate beneath. Its sporty silhouette is enhanced by the unique design and structure of its C-pillar, matched with a wraparound rear-windscreen.

The Sonet will be offered multiple powertrain options to suit virtually all requirements in this segment. A choice of two gasoline engines - a versatile Smartstream 1.2-litre four-cylinder and a powerful 1.0-litre turbocharged gasoline direct injection - and an efficient 1.5-litre CRDi diesel engine are available with a choice of five transmissions, including five and six-speed manuals, an intuitive seven-speed DCT six-speed automatic, and Kia's revolutionary new six-speed Smartstream intelligent manual transmission.

The stylish and clutter-free centre console offers a hi-tech feel and easy access to many of the Sonet's segment-busting features
To suit the requirements of a wide array of customers, the Sonet will be offered in a dual trim concept. This includes the sporty GT-Line trim which enhances the Sonet's racy appeal for enthusiasts via its multiple design and functional elements, both inside and out. GT-Line models offer an extra dash of sportiness to the Sonet and highlight its dynamic presence on the road.

Inside, the Sonet is designed around the driver, with a well laid-out, easy-to-use connected infotainment and cluster interface, and high quality materials all around. Despite compact exterior dimensions, the interior of the Sonet offers ample, ergonomic space for all passengers.

The Sonet is loaded with multiple segment-first features offering complete comfort, convenience, safety and optimum driving pleasure to customers. Taking centre stage on the dashboard is the largest-in-segment 10.25-inch HD touchscreen with infotainment and navigation system. The system offers Kia's intuitive and friendly UVO 'connected car' technology.

Ventilated driver and front passenger seats are one-of-a-kind in this category, reinforcing Kia's 'Power to Surprise' philosophy. Additionally, to further promote the safety of drivers and their loved ones, the Sonet is equipped with Kia's Smart Pure Air Purifier with virus protection. This feature sets the Sonet apart in its segment and once again sets a new benchmark in its category
