Kia Motors Corporation, one of the world’s largest automakers, revealed the Kia Sonet to the world today in a digital presentation. Manufactured at Kia’s state-of-the-art production facility at Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh, the Sonet is Kia’s all-new smart urban compact SUV, and the brand’s latest made-in-India global product after the Seltos. The new Sonet marks Kia Motors’ entry into the burgeoning small SUV segment and sets new benchmarks with its first-in-class features.

The world premiere of the production-ready model follows the global unveiling of the Sonet concept at the Delhi Auto Expo in February 2020. Sales of the new car will begin in India followed by sales in many of Kia’s global markets.

“Kia Motors continues to be recognized globally through products which offer exquisite design and world-class quality, along with ‘The Power to Surprise.’ Everything about the all-new Sonet is uniquely Kia and is sure to delight both drivers and passengers,” said Ho Sung Song, president and CEO at Kia Motors Corporation. “With its aggressive and modern design language, fun-to-drive dynamics, and Kia’s latest high-tech features, the Sonet puts an exclamation point on our ambition to make Kia the brand of choice. The Sonet fills a need in the growing SUV market, in India and further afield, and will attract a wider number of consumers to the Kia brand.”

“We are extremely excited to introduce the Sonet — Made in India for the World. After the success of the Seltos and Carnival, we are confident that Kia will revolutionize yet another market segment in India with the Sonet addressing the unmet needs and aspirations of customers,” said Kookhyun Shim, MD, and CEO at Kia Motors India. “The Kia Sonet is designed and developed to deliver a best-in-class experience in quality, design, technology, features, and drivability to attract a wide spectrum of customers across segments. Kia’s state-of-the-art Anantapur plant will produce Sonet to Kia’s exacting global standards. We are sure the new customers and existing fans of the brand would receive it with enthusiasm.”

Kia explained that the all-new Sonet incorporates Kia’s DNA of emotive styling and a premium and youthful appeal to create a strong road presence. Displaying a dynamic stance in a confident, compact body, the Sonet showcases a range of styling attributes that stand apart on roads around the world. It includes a fresh interpretation of Kia’s signature ‘tiger-nose’ grille, flanked by ‘heartbeat’ LED DRLs (daytime running lights), shaped like the electric pulse of a heart, with a stylish front skid plate beneath.

Inside, the Sonet design around the driver is well laid-out with easy-to-use connected infotainment, cluster interface, and high-quality materials. Despite compact exterior dimensions, the interior of the Sonet offers ample, ergonomic space for all passengers.

The Sonet has multiple segment-first features offering complete comfort, convenience, safety, and optimum driving pleasure to customers. That includes:

The all-new Kia Sonet is a testament to Kia’s focus on consumer insight-driven product innovation and orientation. Kia has targeted Sonet towards the young generation who are tech-savvy, aspirational, and highly connected socially. The Sonet will be launched in India this festive season, in line with Kia Motors India’s promise of offering an all-new product every six to nine months, the company stated.
