Kia Sonet facelift launched at Rs 7.99 lakh

After making its global debut in December, Kia has officially launched the facelifted Sonet in India, priced between Rs 7.99 lakh and Rs 15.69 lakh. Deliveries are set to commence in mid-January. In response to the competitive compact SUV market, Kia has introduced subtle cosmetic updates and additional features to enhance the Sonet’s appeal.

The exterior enhancements are noticeable, featuring redesigned lighting elements.

The facelifted Sonet also introduces new front and rear bumpers, along with a roof-mounted spoiler, contributing to its refreshed aesthetic.

Internally, the Kia Sonet facelift is equipped with a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, similar to the one found in the new Seltos. The compact SUV retains its 10.25-inch central touchscreen infotainment unit, accompanied by a control panel for climate control, drive modes, and traction control.

A significant addition to the facelifted Sonet is the incorporation of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) technology, a feature already present in its sibling, the Hyundai Venue. For enhanced safety, all variants come standard with six airbags, hill-start assist, a tyre pressure monitoring system, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC). Top-tier variants offer additional features such as cornering lamps, a 360-degree camera, cooled front seats, leatherette upholstery, a Bose audio system, and a sunroof.

The Kia Sonet retains its existing range of engines. Petrol options include an 83hp, 1.2-litre, four-cylinder engine with a 5-speed manual gearbox, and a 120hp, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine with a choice of a 6-speed iMT gearbox or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. The diesel engine is a 116hp, 1.5-litre, four-cylinder unit with three gearbox options: a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed iMT, and a 6-speed torque converter automatic.
