The interior of the model houses a 10.25-inch touchscreen of the multimedia system, which is visually connected to a completely digital instrument panel. The company also previously said that the new product will have at its disposal a wider list of active and passive safety functions, including six airbags, as well as an upgraded combination in this class of side and front passenger protection.

The Kia Sonet crossover will be offered in two versions, which differ in body kits and a radiator grill: Tech and GT.
