Kia Sonet To Reach Nepal, Cost More Than 3 Times

Earlier this month, the Kia Sonet, one of the most awaited models of this year, went on sale in the country as the third product from Kia Motors India. The Sonet goes on to rival the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza and Tata Nexon. India is the first market to receive this sub-compact SUV and our country will even become the export hub for this model for several Righ-Hand-Drive markets. The first market to which the Sonet will be exported from here is Nepal, where prices of the new model will start at a staggering NPR 35.90 lakh which (equal to Rs 22.51 lakh in India).

Kia Sonet GTX+ Automatic Model Launched

While the Kia Sonet is on sale in India in multiple variants, in Nepal, it will be available only in 4 trims – HTE, HTX, HTK+, and the top-spec GTX+ variant. In Nepal, the entry-level HTE variant will have a sticker price of NPR 35.90 lakh, while the HTX model will cost NPR 47.90 lakh. Meanwhile, the base automatic variant, the HTK+ AT, will have a sticker price of NPR 49.90 lakh. Finally, the top-of-the-line GTX+ variant will cost NPR 57.90 lakh.

What’s also important to mention here that Nepal won’t get all the engine variants that are available in India. Over here, the Kia Sonet is on sale in three engine variants – 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol, and 1.5-litre turbo-diesel. Of these, the turbo-petrol engine, which is the most powerful of the lot with a maximum power of 120 PS, won’t be on sale in Nepal. The 1.2-litre petrol engine offers only 82 hp of maximum power and 115 Nm of peak torque. The motor comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. On the other hand, the turbo-petrol mill offers 120 PS and 172 Nm. Transmission options on this not-for-Nepal variant include a 6-speed iMT and a 7-speed DCT. Meanwhile, the 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engine offers 100 bhp and 240 Nm when paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. With a 6-speed torque-converter automatic unit, it offers 115 bhp and 250 Nm.

Kia Sonet Launched, Prices Start from Rs 6.7 Lakh

The India-made Kia Sonet will be exported to more than 70 countries around the world and, as we said, Nepal will become the first one to get this made-in-India car. At the moment, the new sub-compact-SUV is being produced only in India at the company’s state-of-the-art production facility at Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. Over here, prices of the Kia Sonet range from Rs 6.71 lakh to 12.89 lakh. The new sub-4-meter SUV is currently available with a waiting period of up to 2 months on select variants.
