The new crossover KIA Sonet declassified before the official debutFebruary 3, 2020
The Korean automaker began to disclose the first details about its new product in early January. The public premiere of the crossover will be organized at the upcoming Auto Expo 2020 in India.
This week, February 6, KIA will publicly present the new Sonet crossover, which, as it became known, is now called the most affordable SUV in the KIA model line. We have already talked about the motor range of the novelty. The brand is ready to offer customers immediately four versions of the KIA Sonet with four motors to choose from. These are two “aspirated” – a 83-liter liter and a 1.6-liter with a return of 123 hp, as well as a 120-liter liter turbo engine and a 90-liter 1.4-liter turbodiesel.
Atmospheric engines work in conjunction with the manual transmission or CVT, and turbocharged engines with a 7-speed “robot”. The drive is front.
An Indian plant will be engaged in the production of the new product, from where the SUV will also get to other regional markets. The novelty will have to compete with the Skoda Vision IN SUV, which is also presented at the Auto Expo in New Delhi. The Korean novelty has every chance to win the sympathy of customers – an interesting appearance, a rich list of available options and additional equipment, as well as an inexpensive price. So, despite its low cost, KIA Sonet gets up to six airbags, air conditioning, a collision avoidance system and much more.
