Kia Sonet launched at Rs 6.71 lakh

Kia Sonet launched at Rs 6.71 lakh

The Kia Sonet has been launched in India with introductory prices starting at Rs 6.71 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The compact SUV has garnered much attention since its debut in concept form at the 2020 Auto Expo, and more recently, when Kia unveiled the production-spec Sonet.

As we’ve seen with Kia Seltos, the Korean company will offer the Sonet compact SUV in two variant lines – the Tech Line and GT Line. This means that the Sonet line-up is available in six trim levels. The Tech Line comprises of the HTE, HTK, HTK+, HTX and HTX+ trims. While the GT Line has a sole, fully-loaded GTX+ trim. The two lines also differ in appearance as the GT Line gets sporty red accents on the exterior and contrast red stitching on the interior.

The Sonet is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. Of the two petrol engines on offer, the first is a 1.2-litre, naturally aspirated unit making 83hp and 115Nm of torque. This engine can only be had with a 5-speed manual gearbox and is limited to the lower trim levels. The other option is a 1.0-litre, turbo-petrol engine that produces 120hp and 175Nm of torque. This engine can be had with either a 6-speed iMT gearbox (a clutch-less manual) or a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox.

Coming to the diesel engine, it is a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, turbocharged unit that produces 100hp and 240Nm when paired to the 6-speed manual gearbox. However, when fitted with the 6-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox, it makes 115hp and 250Nm (up by 15hp and 10Nm). The Sonet is currently the only offering in the compact SUV segment to come with a diesel-torque converter gearbox combination.
