The Sonet will come with three BS6-compliant engine options: 1.2-liter petrol, 1.5-liter diesel, and a 1.0-liter GDi turbo-petrol. Transmission options on the sub-compact SUV will be handled either by a six-speed manual gearbox or a DCT automatic unit with a front-wheel-drive (FWD) system.
Inside, the Sonet sub-compact SUV comes with a five-seater cabin that has an electric sunroof, automatic climate control, a multifunctional steering wheel, and some segment-first features like sun blinds as well as ventilated seats.
It also has a push-button start-stop function, wireless charging, and a touchscreen infotainment panel with support for Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Kia's UVO connected car technology.
As far as the pocket pinch is concerned, the sub-compact Kia Sonet SUV is expected to be priced between Rs. 7-12 lakh. At this price point, it will take on the likes of Hyundai Venue, and Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
