The Kia Sonet is all set to shake up the sub-compact SUV segment of the Indian car market. Launched recently at a starting price of Rs 6.71 lakhs (ex-showroom, pan-India), the Sonet has already made everyone take notice of its arrival. Soon, it will even get the GTX Plus DCT and Diesel Auto variants. The company even posted a record of garnering the highest number of bookings on the first day of commencement of pre-orders. Now, we have got to know that the carmaker has already bagged over 25,000 orders since the order-book opened earlier this month.

Kia Sonet GTX Plus AT and Diesel AT Prices to Launch In Coming Weeks

At the launch event of the Kia Sonet, the local subsidiary of the South Korean carmaker revealed that its latest offering is clocking roughly 1,000 bookings a day on an average. The carmaker also revealed that it has set a target of selling one lakh units of the Kia Sonet in the first year itself. It also announced that it plans to export 50,000 units of the new vehicle this year itself. The Kia Sonet has gone on sale in the price range of Rs 6.71 lakh for the base-level HTE trim to Rs 11.99 lakh for the GTX+ variant.

It must be noted here that the Kia Sonet is the third product from Kia Motors India and goes on to rival well-established cars like the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport, and Tata Nexon. The Kia Sonet has been put on sale in two styling trims – Tech Line and GT Line. Also, it’s available in three engine variants – 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol, 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol, and 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel. Also, there are multiple transmission options to choose from. The base petrol engine, which is the naturally-aspirated unit, offers 83PS and 112Nm. The turbocharged petrol engine outputs 120PS and 172Nm, while the turbo-diesel motor offers 115PS and 250Nm with automatic transmission and 100PS and 240Nm with 6-speed manual unit.

The Kia Sonet will be available in two trims – Tech Line and GT Line

As per the manufacturer, the Kia Sonet offers more than 30 segment-first features, including bits like a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, UVO connectivity features, BOSE surround sound system with 7 speakers and a sub-woofer, LED sound mood lighting, wireless smartphone charger with a cooling feature, ventilated front seats, air purifier and more. Safety features on offer include six airbags, ABS with EBD, Vehicle Stability Management, Electronic Stability Control, Hill-Start Assist Control, and Brake Assist. The Kia Sonet is underpinned by the same platform as the Hyundai Venue but offers slightly different driving dynamics due to a differently tuned suspension.
