One of Auto Expo 2020s most anticipated world premieres is the Kia Sonet. Here are five things you need to know about this upcoming conception SUV.
Kia car has not put out an official word regarding the power train options in the Sonet. However, we expect the KIA car model to share its engines with its cousin, the Hyundai Venue. Both KIA car models will be based on the same platform as well. This means that on offer would be a 1.0-litre turbo-charged petrol unit delivering 120 PS and 171 Nm, a 1.5-litre petrol unit that produces 115 PS 144 Nm and a 1.5-litre turbo-charged diesel unit that puts out 115 PS and 250 Nm of torque. A 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic should be the transmission choices.
Ahead of its complete unveiling, Kia car model has given us some teasers of the KIA car that sheds a dim light on the exterior, interior, and its design. The Korean manufacturer claims that except for its signature tiger-nose grille, the Sonet will be a brand-new car model in terms of styling. The Kia car is highlighted by muscular wheel arches, a connected taillight unit, gold paint, darkened C-pillar and flush door handles.
Kia car model has already shown the Indian masses how well-equipped its car models can be with the Seltos. Given the vast competition in the sub-compact SUV car segment, the company will provide the Selos with some segment-exclusive and best-in-class features.
In addition to the flush above door handles, expect the Kia Seltos car model to feature full LED headlamps, LED day-time running lamps, LED tail-lamps, and machined alloy wheels on the outside car. On the vital inside features should include an 8-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system, built-in eSIM for UVO car connectivity features, pushbutton start with keyless entry, automatic climate control, wireless charger, electric sunroof, rear AC vents, 6 airbags and much more.
