On the rear end, the tail lamps will be connected by a single strip of light.
The Kia Sonet will come with three BS6-compliant engine options: 1.2-liter petrol, 1.5-liter diesel, and 1.0-liter GDI turbo-petrol. Transmission duties will be handled either by a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DCT unit. An intelligent manual transmission (IMT) unit will also be on offer.
Inside, the Kia Sonet will come with a five-seater cabin featuring a sunroof, automatic climate control, ventilated seats, key-less entry, and wireless phone charging facility.
The sub-compact SUV will also have a start-stop button and a touchscreen infotainment panel that will support Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Kia's UVO connected car technology.
It should also offer multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, and parking sensors.
