It is expected that in the salons of official dealers the novelty will arrive in August this year.

The Korean company KIA continues to test its new crossover Sonet. The first time a new product was noticed on the roads in late February. On the eve of the photo spies managed to take new pictures of the car. Recall that the KIA Sonet was officially presented at the Auto Expo 2020 in India. The car will be assembled at the modern KIA facility in India. However, the crossover will be intended not only for the domestic market – a large number of copies will be exported.

In tests, the car was hidden by a large layer of camouflage, but we can already conclude that a lot will go to it from the prototype. We are talking about similar head optics, glazing lines and the design of the radiator grill. Also, in the new photo, we managed to consider the rims – their design is a bit similar to the rims from the Japanese cross Honda CR-V.

KIA Sonet should receive a wide engine range, consisting of 4 power units. It will include two “aspirated” with a volume of 1.2 and 1.6 liters and a return of 83 and 123 hp. respectively.

 Customers will also be able to purchase options with a 1.0-liter turbo engine with 120 hp. and a 1.5-liter diesel engine with 90 hp Atmospheric engines are combined with a manual transmission or CVT, and a robotic gearbox relies on a supercharged engine. The novelty will receive a fairly large number of options, especially in the top versions – we note the presence of a modern multimedia system, climate control, engine start from the button. Prices for the KIA Sonet are still unknown – they will be announced closer to the start of sales.
