KIA Sonet 1.0 Turbo Manual Launch Updates - Price, Engine, Performance,
KIA recently launched the Sonet in India and it has two types of petrol engines with the much talked about Turbo petrol having an iMT gearbox. The 1.2l petrol has the 5-speed manual. However post launch there are many customers who are saying that they want a proper 6-speed manual and not an iMT which means KIA might now think of getting a manual option with the 1.0 turbo petrol.
The turbo petrol with its power holds the most appeal in the KIA line-up and while many would not want to stretch all the way to a DCT, the thought of a proper manual is desirable. The Sonet turbo only gets an iMT currently and while it does not get a clutch pedal, it drives like a manual. But for enthusiasts a proper manual with a clutch has a better feel and it is something we are agreeing also.
Looking at the post launch feedback KIA will most likely introduce a manual Sonet with the 1.0 soon. The manual 1.0 Sonet would also be Rs 20,000 cheaper than the iMT Sonet and would make owing a turbo petrol Sonet more cheaper. Do note the Hyundai Venue with the turbo petrol gets a proper manual also along with an iMT and that is something which KIA will also need to do in the future. That said the manual 1.0 Sonet would be limited to mid spec trims since the iMT and DCT would be for the GT line top-end most likely.
