Car sales will begin in the car market in India, which will become the main model. In the future, the geography of car sales may be expanded.

Less than a month is left before the debut of the new compact KIA Sonet crossover. The online presentation of the car will be held on August 7 this year. In anticipation of the event, KIA prepared a teaser showing the Sonet concept car. Recall that the prototype was first demonstrated in February this year at a motor show in India. It is expected that all the main features of the concept will go into the serial version.

In technical terms, the novelty is very similar to the budget cross Hyundai Venue, with which it will share the engine range. It is expected that from it Sonet will receive a 1.2-liter engine with a capacity of 83 hp, as well as a 1.0-liter turbo engine with a return of 120 hp. Also, the KIA Sonet should acquire a diesel engine, which produces 115 hp with a 1.5-liter volume. power. Such an engine runs on the KIA Seltos crossover for the Indian market.

All-wheel drive is not even an option. But outwardly KIA Sonet and Hyundai Venue will receive significant differences. Sonet will receive another mesh radiator grill, as well as more classic headlights. The taillights will be united by a bright red stripe. KIA Sonet should not exceed 4 meters in length, which is often found in India to ease the tax burden.

The car interior will turn out to be very technological – we will highlight an informative dashboard, a modern infotainment complex with a large touchscreen.

But the climate control unit decided to leave in the traditional version. Prices will be announced closer to the start of sales, which is scheduled for September this year. Production will be established at the KIA plant in India.
