Who could imagine a new carmaker averages 15000 units in its first few months in the indian auto market. Kia has done the unbelievable which Ford, Toyota, Volkswagen and Honda could not do. Seltos has been a runaway success for Kia. Kia has already unveiled the premium MPV carnival which takes on Toyota Innova Crysta. Now comes another the ‘Sonet ‘ to knock out wide range of competitors – Maruti Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Ford Ecosport and Hyundai Venue.
Kia Sonet shares the same platform as Hyundai Venue. With more synchronization between sister brand (Hyundai and Kia) other manufacturers will find it difficult. Expect the sonet to come in wide range of engine and transmission options to choose from. Expect all the whistles and bells in the gizmos and in-car entertainment too. Kia Sonet SUV will get Bose sound system, 10.25″ touchscreen, front ventilated seats, UVO connected car tech, spacious cabin and an automatic gearbox (iMT) for sure
