Kia Sonet Global Premiere on Aug 7th
KIA has officially released a teaser render of the upcoming compact SUV from its stable. As you know it is called the Sonet and the teaser image shows what to expect from this new compact SUV. As we have discussed before, KIA will reveal the interior and exterior of the Sonet by the 7th of next month. This is a design render and it will be the second made in India car after the Seltos. You can see the Tiger Nose grille which has a three dimensional type grille while it has aggressive proportions with rather big wheel arches. It also stays near the same to the concept shown at the Auto Expo. It will have all the usual SUV design cues like a skid plate plus big alloys and roof-rails. Even the bonnet is sculpted. Yesterday we told you that the Sonet will have the same touch-screen as the Seltos.
KIA expects the Sonet to be the best selling SUV in its class and also for itself. It has in-fact started increasing production in anticipation of the demand for this car. With this styling we think KIA would indeed be successful again after the Seltos. As you can see compared to the Seltos, the Sonet is actually more aggressive looking despite being compact at being under 4m in length. Currently the compact SUV space has popular cars like the Hyundai Venue while the updated Tata Nexon has also brought back sales to Tata. Ford also brought out a new variant in order to make the EcoSport more appealing. Thus the battle is already heating up though we think it would be mostly between the KIA Seltos and the Hyundai Venue as these two would be the best selling compact SUVs just like what their bigger brother Creta and Seltos are doing.
