Kia Motors India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kia Motors Corporation, has today released official images of its upcoming Sonet compact SUV. The production-ready Kia Sonet has a distinctive and dynamic design, as well as many first-in-segment features. First showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 as a concept, the all-new Kia Sonet would make its world premiere on August 7, making a bold statement in the compact SUV segment.

Manufactured in India, the Kia Sonet has a sophisticated and lively cabin featuring a smooth, sweeping dashboard and a stylish, minimalist center console that offers easy on-the-go access to its class-leading features. The general ambiance is both youthful and luxurious - ideal for young-at-heart, always-connected consumers.

The Sonet’s interior is modern, vibrant, and offers a high sense of dynamism to drivers. The company has designed it to maximize driver and passenger comfort. Its dashboard provides owners with the car’s full range of user-friendly features, including a two-layer tray to store mobile devices and other items. The center stage is its high-tech digital display and instrument cluster, which features a first-in-segment 10.25-inch HD touchscreen and navigation system with UVO Connected technologies. The Sonet will also offer drivers steering wheel-mounted controls and select a different drive and traction modes. Air vents in the dashboard feature a metallic, diamond-knurled pattern, a chic and stylish design highlight.

The Sonet’s emotive and bold design combines the brand’s signature design traits, including the iconic ‘tiger-nose’ grille, with a three-dimensional ‘stepwell’ geometric grille mesh, making a strong visual impression inspired by Indian architecture. The distinctive LED headlamps reiterate the ‘Wild by Design’ theme, which has inspired the Sonet, giving it a great appearance that genuinely stands out on the road. It projects an aggressive stance with a rugged appeal.

“We are extremely excited to introduce the new Kia Sonet to the world, a compact SUV with a muscular and robust character found only in much larger vehicles. With this in mind, we have designed this SUV with a uniquely sporty attitude, a confident stance, and a dynamic silhouette. The great cultural heritage that our designers found all over India inspired its uncompromising attention to detail and selection of colors and materials,” said Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Kia Global Design at Kia Motors Corporation. “We believe the Kia Sonet’s compelling character will hold significant appeal for young, aspirational, and always-connected customers in India and beyond.”

Safety is a crucial consideration for all Kia Motors vehicles, and the Sonet will feature an extensive list of active and passive safety equipment. It will come equipped with up to six airbags - offering a class-leading combination of front, side, and curtain protection for occupants.

The Sonet is Kia’s latest ‘Made-in-India’ product. It will be available in many of the brand’s global markets.
