Bookings for the Kia Sonet were opened recently and the upcoming sub-compact-SUV has already been off to a flying start with a record number of bookings on the first day. The new model will launch next month and ahead of its introduction, information on its trim levels and colour options has come to light.
As per the official brochure of the Kia Sonet, the new model will be sold in as many as six trim levels, viz. HTE, HTK, HTK+, HTX+, and GTX+. The base trim will feature halogen headlamps, 15-inch steel wheels with wheel caps, all-black interior, manual aircon, rear AC vents, central locking and a 3.5-inch MID. Safety features will comprise dual front airbags, ABS, EBD, and rear parking sensors.
The higher trims will get several model segment-leading features such as a 7-speaker Bose audio system with Sound Mood Lighting, a Seltos-like 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, in-cabin air purifier, ventilated seats, wireless phone charger, LED headlights, sunroof, 16-inch alloy wheels, and six airbags. Also, the new model will be sold in 11 colour options out of which eight will be monotone shades will the remaining will be dual-tone options. The monotone colour choices will consist of Intense Red, Beige Gold, Aurora Black Pearl, Gravity Grey, Steel Silver, Intelligency Blue, Glacier White Pearl, and Clear White. On the other hand, the dual-tone options will include Intense Red/Aurora Black, Beige Gold/Aurora Black, and Glacier White/Aurora Black.
As we have reported numerous times, the Kia Sonet will borrow its engines from the Venue, which means it will get a 1.2-litre petrol engine that will belt out 83 PS and 115 Nm, a 1.5-litre diesel engine that will offer 100 PS and 140 Nm and a 1.0-litre turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine that will pump out 120 PS and 172 Nm. Like the Venue, the diesel engine will come mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. However, unlike the Venue, the Sonet will also get 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.
The 1.2-litre petrol engine will be offered only in HTE, HTK, and HTK+ trim levels. On the other hand, the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol motor with the 6-speed iMT will be available in HTK+, HTX, HTX+, and GTX+ trims, while the DCT will be offered only in HTK+ and GTX+ trims. The diesel-manual combo will be on sale in all the trims will the diesel-auto variant will be available only in the HTK+ and GTX+.
