KIA held the official presentation of its new crossover Sonet. The premiere took place at Auto Expo 2020 in India. However, the car will not go on sale so quickly – dealers expect cars to arrive in the second half of this year. Car production will be launched at KIA in India. From there, in addition to the Indian car market, the car will be sent to other countries.
At the moment, it is known about the four available trim levels of the car. KIA Sonet has a very bright front part – we note the design of the radiator grille, which smoothly connects to the navigation lights. In general, the design looks very stylish and modern, so the car is designed for buyers of any age.
The engine range of the new product consists of four power units – two “aspirated” volume of 1.0 and 1.6 liters with a return of 83 and 123 hp respectively, a 1.0-liter turbo engine with 120 hp and a turbocharged diesel powerplant that delivers 90 bhp.
Atmospheric motors operate with a manual gearbox or CVT, and turbocharged engines rely on a 7-band “robot”. Drive – front in all trim levels. Already in the basic version, the car will receive a large number of options – among them climate control, keyless engine start, frontal collision avoidance system. The main competitor of the KIA Sonet is Volkswagen Taigun, which has already been presented at the auto show in India.
