Kia Sonet: Quick Review

Exterior

A harmonious blend of contemporary design elements and rugged appeal on the exterior of the facelifted Kia Sonet makes a strong visual statement in its competitive subcompact SUV segment. Gunmetal grey elements, imparting sophistication to the front adornment, are at the forefront, among other design upgrades that enhance an overall imposing look. Refined touches create visual distinction and contribute to a charismatic road presence for Sonet.

The front of the vehicle features LED headlamps and intricately detailed Daytime Running Lights (DRLs). These not only enhance visibility during nighttime driving but also infuse a touch of modernity into its exterior aesthetics. Further enhancing both visual appeal and road efficiency are well-defined lines along with sculpted surfaces that contribute to an SUV's aerodynamic profile.

Kia, while maintaining the Sonet's distinct identity, has subtly modified its exterior to present a fresh and contemporary look without altering its overall body shape. The design enhancements are an expression of Kia's commitment towards evolving their models yet preserving that unique Sonet essence.

Beyond mere aesthetics, the dynamic exterior design of the Kia Sonet embodies a balance between urban sophistication and off-road capability. Its robust stance and well-defined contours convey strength. This emphasis on versatility underscores its suitability for an array of driving conditions.

A testament to the brand's dedication, the exterior of the Kia Sonet delivers more than just practicality for a subcompact SUV. Its refined design language makes it stand out in style and ruggedness after its facelift. Consequently, this visually appealing yet capable vehicle becomes an enticing choice within the subcompact SUV segment – successfully combining functionality with flair.

Interior and Features

Upon entering the interior of Kia Sonet, one discovers a meticulously designed cabin that masterfully balances luxury with practicality. It showcases solid craftsmanship through its attention to fit - finish- and material quality, truly embodying excellence in design execution. The smooth finish of plastics, plush leather-wrapped elements, and the overall attention to detail in Kia's offerings clearly reflect their commitment towards delivering a refined driving environment.

While the interior layout showcases a few busy elements, it primarily prioritises user convenience. Kia's responsiveness to user feedback is evident in notable upgrades such as the enhanced centre console buttons. Moreover, seamlessly integrating into the centre console, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment display amplifies the premium feel of cabin space.

Elevating the driving experience to unprecedented levels, features within the Kia Sonet take centre stage. Notably, it includes a user-friendly touchscreen infotainment system. Additionally, measuring 10.25 inches, the digital driver's display imbues an engagingly futuristic touch into your dashboard. It delivers essential driving information clearly and effectively.

Ventilated front seats prioritise comfort, as does the sunroof that offers an open and airy ambience. Furthermore, a wireless phone charger underscores convenience significantly. Equipped with a 360-degree camera, the all-digital instrument cluster bolsters safety by offering a comprehensive view of the vehicle's surroundings. The materials' quality, notably evident in features like leather-wrapped steering wheel and seat upholstery, imparts an element of luxury to the cabin space.

The Kia Sonet meticulously caters to cabin practicality, providing a wealth of storage options with door pockets. An expansive open area with wireless charging capabilities, cup holders, and not forgetting the indispensable glove box. A premium and comfortable driving environment that harmoniously blends aesthetic appeal with functional features is what the interior of the Kia Sonnet offers its occupants. The refined, enjoyable driving experience owes much to both these superior interiors and the innovative features present in this vehicle.

Kia Sonet Engine and Transmission

Kia Sonet Engine Capacity (CC)

With a diverse range of engines, the Kia Sonet empowers drivers to select their preferred powertrain that aligns with individual preferences and driving requirements. The available options comprise a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, a turbo-petrol variant featuring an efficient 1.0-litre capacity, and its diesel counterpart boasting robust performance at 1.5 litres in size. Meticulous design characterises each engine, tailored for specific driving scenarios. Thus, a comprehensive solution emerges. Urban commuting, highway cruising and overall performance are all addressed effectively through this thoughtful approach.

The petrol engine of 1.2-litre size and four cylinders works well for city driving because it runs without problems, and it is also commendable when used on highways.

The turbo petrol engine of 1.0 litre is very thrilling for those who like to drive with spirit. This engine has a reputation for smoothness and robust strength, making sure it delivers efficient driving suitable for swiftly overtaking highways and manoeuvring in urban areas. This particular version comes with two options for the gear system - a 6-speed intelligent manual (iMT) and also a 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT).

The diesel engine that has a 1.5-litre size works well for various driving situations, such as driving quickly on long highways or simply within the city, and it also helps to reduce fuel consumption. Those who drive this car have multiple options for shifting gears, including manual shift, an iMT, which means Intelligent Manual Transmission, or an automatic one that switches between six-speed modes by itself.

 Kia Sonet Transmission

The driving experience is enhanced significantly through crucial transmission choices. Offering a variety of options to cater to diverse preferences is the Kia Sonet's speciality. Equipped with a manual transmission, the 1.2-litre petrol engine delivers an engaging and classic driving experience.

Known for its performance prowess, the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine offers a unique blend of manual control without the need for a clutch pedal through its 6-speed iMT (clutchless manual) and provides an extra touch of sportiness with its 7-speed DCT. This latter option delivers swift and almost seamless gear changes.

The 1.5-litre diesel engine offers a wide range of transmission options - manual, iMT, and a 6-speed automatic. This diversity empowers drivers to select the ideal transmission, one that perfectly aligns with their unique driving styles and preferences.

Kia Sonet Performance

Each engine in the lineup delivers noteworthy performance, catering to diverse driving styles. The 1.2-litre petrol engine guarantees a smooth and relaxed drive perfect for both city commuting and highway cruising. However, if you crave more spirited dynamics, opt for the turbo-petrol-powered 1.0-litre. Its thrilling dose of excitement injects an entirely different character into your journey, ideal for those who seek an adventurous twist on their driving experience!

A balance is struck by the 1.5-litre diesel engine, delivering a smooth and effortless drive on open roads. Multiple transmission options for each engine are available. This provides an extra layer of customisation, allowing drivers to tailor performance according to their preferences.

Kia Sonet Mileage

The subcompact SUV segment prioritises fuel efficiency, and indeed, the Kia Sonet demonstrates this with competitive mileage figures across its engine variants. The 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine yielding a respectable 18.83 kmpl presents an efficient choice for urban residents. Furthermore, by striking a balance between performance and efficiency, the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine offers noteworthy results. With iMT it provides 18.7 kmpl, while DCT increases that figure to 19.2 kmpl. Leading in efficiency, the 1.5-litre diesel engine impressively provides a mileage of 22.3 kmpl with iMT and 18.6 kmpl with automatic transmission.

Kia Sonet Ground Clearance

The Kia Sonet’s ground clearance stands at 205 mm, making traversing rough roads and huge speed breakers a piece of cake.

Kia Sonet Boot Space

Kia Sonet boasts the best boot space in its segment, featuring a wide, long, and flat floor. The boot Space offered is 385 litres. The 60-40 split-folding rear seats add versatility, allowing users to accommodate large items conveniently.

Kia Sonet Dimensions

Measuring 3995 mm in length, 1790 mm in width, and 1570 mm in height, the Kia Sonet flaunts compact yet well-proportioned dimensions. Its wheelbase spans 2500mm. Striking an impressive balance between urban agility and interior space, the result of its optimal length contributes towards ease of manoeuvrability within city traffic. At the same time, with that substantial wheelbase enhancing stability on-road, it presents as not just another vehicle but rather one designed for superior performance across diverse terrains. The Sonet, with its subcompact dimensions, effortlessly navigates city streets. Moreover, it offers a comfortable and spacious interior for occupants.

Kia Sonet Colours

Diverse preferences find a vibrant array of colour choices offered by the Kia Sonet. The Sonet allows for personalised style with its eight monotone options, such as Intense Red, Aurora Black Pearl and Gravity Grey, along with three dual-tone combinations like Glacier White Pearl paired with Aurora Black Pearl. Moreover, Xclusive Graphite Matte, in tandem with the X Line, adds a distinctive touch. Not only do these colour options enhance the aesthetic appeal, but they also empower buyers to express their individuality with a myriad of captivating and sophisticated choices.

Safety

Six airbags, electronic stability control and parking sensors constitute the robust safety features; a 360-degree camera along with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) like lane-keep assist and forward collision warning indeed are additional elements.

Kia Sonet Rivals

Competing in the subcompact SUV segment, the Kia Sonet faces formidable rivals: Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Renault Kiger - not to forget Nissan Magnite, Maruti Suzuki Brezza and Maruti Fronx. With multifaceted features, a variety of engine options, plus an emphasis on safety features—it strategically positions itself as a robust contender within this cutthroat market.

Kia Sonet: Old vs New

The updated Kia Sonet boasts significant styling changes in the front fascia. Notably, it features a sharper set of 3-piece LED headlights, longer fang-shaped LED DRLs, a revamped grille with silver inserts, and sleek LED fog lamps.

In profile, the major alterations include new alloy wheels (16-inch rims for the X-Line variant) and the addition of an ORVM-mounted camera for the 360-degree setup. Higher-spec variants now have body-coloured door handles instead of chrome.

Rear

The rear of the Sonet showcases fully connected LED tail lights, repositioned 'Sonet' badging, and a revised bumper, aligning with the design seen in the new Seltos.

Interior And Features

While the interior layout remains nearly identical, the facelift introduces a new climate control panel below the touchscreen. Noteworthy additions include a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, 4-way powered driver seat, sunroof, wireless phone charging, ventilated front seats, and cruise control.

Engine & Gearbox Options

The 2024 Sonet maintains the powertrain options of the outgoing model, with the return of the diesel manual combo. Options include a 1.2-litre Petrol (5-speed MT), 1-litre Turbo-petrol (6-speed iMT, 7-speed DCT), and 1.5-litre Diesel (6-speed MT, 6-speed iMT, 6-speed AT). Safety features now include six airbags as standard and 10 advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in top variants.
