Earlier this month, Kia Motors India finally introduced the much anticipated Sonet sub-compact-SUV in our market. The Sonet comes with multiple engine options and offers many trims in order to suit the budget and requirements of all kinds of buyers. However, back at the time of the launch, the company had not revealed the prices of the automatic versions of its GT models, available only in the top-spec GTX+ trims. Today, however, the company has finally disclosed the prices of the aforementioned models. Kia Sonet GTX+ 1.0 T-GDI petrol with 7-speed DCT and GTX+ 1.5 CRDi with 6-speed automatic are both priced at INR 12,89,000 each (ex-showroom, Pan-India).
The GT-Line models of the Kia Sonet are a tad more appealing than the regular, Tech-line models as they offer a sportier exterior and interior. The exclusive features list of the GTX+ trim includes an electric sunroof, red accents all around, leatherette wrapped D-cut steering wheel with GT-Line logo, sporty alloy pedals, leatherette wrapped door trims, contrast red stitching on the steering wheel, seats and door armrest, Premium roof lining and more.
The Kia Sonet comes loaded with multiple segment-first features, including the largest and best-in-class 10.25-inch (26.03 cm) HD touchscreen with navigation and live traffic, air purifier with virus and bacteria protection, BOSE seven-speaker sound system with sub-woofer, front ventilated driver and passenger seats, 4.2-inch (10.7 cm) colour instrument cluster, LED Sound Mood Lights, remote engine start via UVO Connect and Smart Key for both automatic and manual transmission models, Over-the-air (OTA) map updates, multi-drive & traction modes for automatic models, wireless smartphone charger with cooling function and more.
The Kia Sonet is on sale with a 1.2-litre petrol engine that belts out 83 PS and 115 Nm, a 1.5-litre diesel engine that offers 100 PS and 140 Nm and a 1.0-litre turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine that pumps out 120 PS and 172 Nm. Like the Venue, the diesel engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. However, unlike the Venue, the Sonet also gets a diesel-automatic option with a 115PS-250 Nm version of the 1.5-litre diesel motor and a 6-speed torque-converted automatic transmission. The 1.2-litre petrol mill will be solely offered with a 5-speed manual transmission, while the 1.0-litre turbo petrol motor will be offered with a choice of a 6-speed iMT (clutchless manual transmission) and a 7-speed Dual-Clutch automatic transmission. It must be noted here that the Kia Sonet is the only car in its segment to offer a diesel engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Kia Sonet is being sold in 11 colour options. The monotone colour choices are- Intense Red, Beige Gold, Aurora Black Pearl, Gravity Grey, Steel Silver, Intelligency Blue, Glacier White Pearl, and Clear White, while the dual-tone options include Intense Red/Aurora Black, Beige Gold/Aurora Black, and Glacier White/Aurora Black.
