Kia Sonet Latest Updates

Kia has launched the X Line trim for the Sonet, priced from Rs 13.39 lakh (ex-showroom). It gets a few cosmetic revisions, including a segment-first Matte Graphite colour and other changes like redesigned alloy wheels with silver brake calipers, beefed up front and rear skid plates with metal accents, and ‘X Line’ badges. Powertrain options are borrowed from the standard variant, which includes the 1-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre diesel unit paired to a 7-speed DCT (dual clutch transmission) and 6-speed automatic transmission, respectively.

Kia Sonet Engine

The Sonet shares its power units with the Venue: an 83PS 1.2-litre petrol, a 120PS 1.0-litre turbo petrol, and a 1.5-litre diesel engine available in two states of tune: 100PS/240Nm and 115PS/250Nm. Transmission duties are carried out by a 6-speed iMT and a 7-speed DCT (with the 1-litre turbo-petrol). While the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel units are available with a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed manual as standard respectively, the diesel mill also gets the option of an optional 6-speed AT. Fuel efficiency figures are rated at 18.4kmpl(1.2-litre petrol MT), 18.2/18.3kmpl(1.0-litre turbo-petrol MT/DCT), and 24.1/19kmpl(1.5-litre diesel MT/AT). The Sonet is 3955mm long, 1790mm wide, and is 1642mm tall. The wheelbase is 2500mm and its boot capacity is good for 392 litres.

The Tech Line takes a more elegant approach to its design while the GT Line adds a dose of sportiness with several red inserts and GT Line badging inside and out.

The SUV comes in six monotone (Intense Red, Aurora Black Pearl, Intelligency Blue, Gravity Grey, Steel Silver, and Glacier White Pearl) and two dual tone (Intense Red / Aurora Black Pearl roof and Glacier White Pearl / Aurora Black Pearl roof). It also gets a segment-first Matte Graphite hue, exclusive to the X Line trim.

What is good and bad in Sonet?

  • Sonet Positives

    Looks curvy and powerful. Lots of variants to choose from and proper automatics too. Like the Seltos the interiors don't disappoint. New update brings four airbags and TPMS as standard. Six airbags are now available on more models too. Some premium features and transmissions have also trickled down to lower variants.

  • Sonet Negatives

    Not enough width for three adults. No cooled glove box or adjustable front arm rest.

  • Expert's Conclusion

    When the Sonet arrived it raised the bar for everyone. With this update it does so again by offering more than what's mandated by regulations and that's commendable.

    Speaker settings

    Its been almost 40 days since i purchased kia sonet htx imt.Overall i am very pleased with the experience.I would want to highlight both good points and not so good points: good points: 1.The performance of the car.Having driven amt earlier this car is superb in pickup and the overall road performance.It feels sporty and i always felt enthralled while driving it even in tight spots or open roads.It reaches 100 kmph in no time.The handling even at high speed is superb and you always feel in control of car.Braking at high speed is again pretty good and you feel confident.2.Look and features are superb in this price bracket and i really doubt any other car in this price bracket provides such package of looks, Power and features.Speaker quality is quite good given that it is not bose and an in-house speaker.I had to do few modifications in the speaker settings to get the best output.3.Imt transmission is smooth though gear shifting for me was little hard in beginning as i was not used to this transmission.4.Best part- service- from car sales to first service i have never felt so good in terms of the overall experience.I called my sales advisor when i felt an issue in my car (which was nothing but my inexperience with transmission).He immediately came to my house with one of their service person and looked into the issue.They did not say anything when they found it was nothing but even guided me on the overall transmission and car handling process.That was awesome! even during the service and after i have been getting calls from both kia service center and company on the service experience and it is really good.The service advisor don't force you to buy anything extra, Though they will suggest so.Not so good points:1.Mileage- even after my first service, I am getting mileage of 9-10 kmpl.Company promises 18.2, So i am expecting at least 13-14 in city and 18 in highways.I have not traveled more than 50-60 km in one stretch, So it is still to be tested on long routes.2.Creep mode- i have faced few issues with creep mode particularly in reverse mode where even on flat surfaces sometimes it doesn't work smoothly.3.There are few dos and donts with imt transmission which need to get used to to prolong clutch and transmission life.Overall, Till now i am pleased with the experience and would recommend the car to other buyers.
