The New Kia Sonet (2021)

The new Kia Sonet is indeed manufactured in India. The Sonet is the smallest crossover SUV in the Korean firms' lineup, offering the tried and tested features that the ever-changing market currently demands, and it enters the market offering a lot of spice for something so affordable.

At the front, highlights include a fresh interpretation of Kia’s signature ‘tiger-nose’ grille, jewel-like LED headlamp, and ‘heart beat’ LED DRLs shaped like the electric pulse of a heart. The Sonet’s youthful appearance is also defined by the unique C-pillar design and structure, wraparound rear windscreen, and 16-inch crystal-cut alloys.

Inside, the Kia Sonet looks modern thanks to the 10.25-inch central touchscreen and 4.2-inch digital instrument cluster that are styled to look like they form a single unit. The dashboard is designed around the driver, which also benefits from a sporty multifunction steering wheel and a compact center console featuring only essential buttons. 

There is air conditioning in the manual variety along with electric windows and mirrors, a 6-speaker audio system, auto headlights and a reverse camera system.

Aside from the high-strength steel construction, you also get ABS with EBD, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Hill Start Assist, dual airbags up front and ISOFIX child seat mounts.

All models in the Sonet range are powered by the same 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine with a choice of either a 6-speed manual or a CVT automatic. This engine produces 85 kW and 144 Nm torque.

Pricing on the Sonet range starts from R269 995 for the LX manual model.
