On the outside, Kia Sonet features very distinctive and dynamic design lines. It was showcased as a concept for the very first time at the Auto Expo 2020.
Sonet will feature Kia’s brand’s signature styling ‘tiger nose’ grille, with a 3D ‘stepwell’ geometric grille mesh, giving it a bolder presence.
“We are extremely excited to introduce the new Kia Sonet to the world, a compact SUV with a strong and muscular character found only in much larger vehicles. With this in mind, we have designed this SUV with a uniquely sporty attitude, a confident stance and a dynamic silhouette. Its uncompromising attention to detail and selection of colors and materials could have only be inspired by the great cultural heritage that our designers found all over India,” said Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Kia Global Design at Kia Motors Corporation.
Inside, the Sonet promises a very modern and feature packed cabin with a smooth, sweeping dashboard and a good looking, minimalist center console that offers access to its features. Its vertically framed air vents on the dashboard will be decorated with a metallic, diamond-knurled pattern.
Taking center stage on the dashboard will be its high-tech digital display and instrument cluster, featuring a first-in-segment 10.25-inch HD touchscreen and navigation system with UVO Connected technologies. Kia’s compact SUV will also be kitted with goodies such as steering wheel-mounted controls, different drive and traction modes.
