Exclusive: KIA Sonet SUV Spied before Global Launch on Aug 7th
We have caught the KIA Sonet production version on test before its 7th August reveal. KIA Motors India has announced that the production version of the Sonet would be revealed on the 7th of next month. Now we have caught a heavily covered up test Sonet and the production version is slightly different from the concept as we found out.
The production Sonet even if covered up reveals it is a baby Seltos and features many KIA design details like the Tiger nose grille and others. In size terms the Sonet would be an under 4m SUV to compete with the likes of the Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, Maruti Brezza and Tata Nexon.
The Sonet seems pretty big when compared to its rivals with a proper SUV look. It is much like its Seltos bigger brother. Interestingly the Sonet would nearly have all of the features of the Seltos including the 10.25 inch touch-screen plus Bose audio system amongst others.
In terms of engine options the Sonet would have a 1.0 turbo petrol plus a 1.2l petrol and the 1.5l diesel. The 1.0 turbo will have a iMT gearbox (also to be launched soon on Venue) and a DCT automatic. However even the diesel will have an automatic gearbox which would be unique since no one else has it.
The Sonet would be launched towards the festive season and would have aggressive pricing which would be similar to the Venue and others. KIA might even undercut the Venue and others in order to gain an upper hand in this segment. However for now we will get to see the production version interior and exterior in full on the 7th with full specifications. Stay tuned as we will bring you everything you need to know about the Sonet.
