Kia Sonet HTK+: In Detailed Pictures

This is the only variant that comes with every single powertrain option in the Sonet’s lineup

  • The Kia Sonet HTK+ is the mid-spec variant in the lineup.
  • Prime features on offer include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and climate control.
  • Sonet HTK+ offered with all engine-gearbox options.
  • Priced in the range of Rs 8.45 lakh to Rs 10.39 lakh.

The Kia Sonet has just been launched in the country from Rs 6.71 lakh to Rs 11.99 lakh. Prices for the top-spec GTX+ automatic variants will be revealed by September end. The Sonet is offered in six variants: HTE, HTK, HTK+, HTX, HTX+ and GTX+. We recently got on our hands on some pictures of the Sonet’s third-from-base HTK+ variant. Here’s a closer look:

The HTK+ is the bang-on mid-spec variant in the Sonet’s lineup. But we must mention it doesn’t look too stripped down when compared to the top-spec GTX+ variant. The bling found in the top-spec variant has been toned down here.

For instance, LED headlamps have been traded in for regular halogen units.  

Plain jane steel wheels have been cut in the shape of the wheel cap to mimic alloy wheels. You’ll  also notice that the chrome door handles found in the GTX+ trim are missing here. 

The Sonet HTK+ looks similar to the GTX+ variant. However, its tail lamps utilise incandescent bulbs instead of LEDs and that’s liveable with in our opinion. A keen eye will also notice that the rear bumper utilises a silver applique instead of the piano black found on the GTX+ trim. 

The Sonet HTK+ packs in a decent amount of equipment such as an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth-based UVO Lite connected car tech, automatic climate control, steering-mounted audio controls, a 3.5-inch multi-info display, keyless entry and electric folding and adjustable ORVMs. Safety is covered by dual airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors. The Turbo DCT variant further comes with electronic stability control and hill start assist. Cruise control would have made the package complete. 

The main highlight with the Sonet HTK+ is in the powertrain department as it’s the only variant to feature all the engine-transmission combinations. Here’s a look at the spec sheet:
