Kia Sonet Review- a compact SUV that can do big things

16 Nov 2021
Globally, Kia has grown to be a go-to for mid-range cars. They bring you a glimpse of what higher-priced cars offer, on a budget. In India, however, Kia has played its cards differently. They've gone for a top-down approach, by first launching their top-of-the-line, feature-loaded models like Seltos and Carnival, setting a high benchmark for their cars.

It is on the back of their success that Kia has launched the Sonet - a mid-range compact SUV, that's taking Indian roads by storm. The Sonet is offered in 2 variant categories - GT Line and Tech Line, each featuring multiple variants. The range of configurations bring you the very best a compact car can offer, making it a tough competitor for other fan-favourite cars in the segment - like the Hyundai Venue and Creta.

Let's explore what the Kia Sonet holds in store for you!
  • Unmatched style: In the growing compact car segment, few cars command attention like the Kia Sonet. Its body contours, flared wheel arches and Kia's iconic 'tiger-nose grille' give it a sporty, rugged look that stands out on the roads. Its crown-jewel LED headlamps accentuate its aggressive front, giving it a more commanding road presence. The Kia Sonet comes in 4 iconic colours: Gravity Gray, Clear White, Intense Red and Steel Silver, with all-black interiors and red highlights.

    Put simply, the Kia Sonet is a car that can get heads turning.
  • Power-packed performance: What drives the Kia Sonet? A range of power-packed engine options, from the first-in-segment 1.5L, 115 PS Horsepower 6-speed Advance diesel engine, to the Advanced Smartstream G1.2 Petrol Engine. All this power translates into a blissful ride on the open highways, as it flows on, quietly.

    Surprisingly, the Sonet is a decent city drive too! The automatic variants are a pleasure to drive, as you weave through the city traffic, with effortless steering and gear shifts.

    You can also choose between the Normal, Eco and Sport driving modes, and 3 different traction modes, depending on your adventures! While Eco delivers great fuel economy and sufficient power to deal with city traffic, Sport mode opens you up to the very best the car has to offer - responsive throttle, superior engine braking and a smooth, swift ride!
  • All-round safety: Its ABS with Electronic-Brake Distribution, 6 airbags, front and rear parking sensors and impact-sensing door unlock feature promise a safe ride and ensure that you're prepped for all uncertainties on the road.
  • Connect to convenience: Featuring Kia's latest connected car technology - UVO, it offers you 58 smart ways of staying connected. These include AI Voice Command, Voice assisted Sunroof control, OTA map updates, among others - all of which make your drives enjoyable and convenient.

    The Sonet houses a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, connected to an Advance colour display panel that enables distraction-free driving, in a cabin that's designed for the future. The premium Bose 7-speaker sound system presents an immersive audio experience, paired with LED sound mood lighting. Its 392-litre, well-shaped boot is the largest among its competitors and is definitely big enough to fit all your adventures, and more!
