Kia Motors India has released the first official rendering image of the new production-ready Sonet ahead of its global debut on August 7, 2020. It will be the company's third overall product in India after Seltos & Carnival while being the second ‘made in India’ car from Kia after Seltos. Being unveiled at the 2020 Auto Expo as Concept, Kia Sonet will be placed in the subcompact SUV segment which is already flooded with the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue and Mahindra XUV300 in the Indian market.

The rendering image showcases Kia's signature design characteristics in the Sonet such as the ‘tiger nose’ front grille with a three-dimensional ‘stepwell’ geometric grille mesh. Kia Sonet will be launched during the festive season around October-November 2020 in India while also exported to various global markets from the South-Korean automaker's production facility in Ananthpur, Andhra Pradesh. The subcompact SUV will debut several first-in-segment features while being equipped with top-notch safety features. Mechanically, it will be offered three BS6 compliant engines: a 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol, a 1.0L turbocharged petrol and a 1.5L diesel. There will be multiple transmission options to choose from with each engine.

“With the new Kia Sonet, we had the ambition to give this compact SUV a strong and muscular character found only in much larger vehicles. With this in mind, we have designed what we believe is a great SUV with a uniquely sporty attitude, a confident stance and a dynamic silhouette. We also gave the new Kia Sonet an uncompromising attention to detail and a selection of colors and materials that could have only been inspired by the great cultural heritage that our designers found all over India,” said Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Kia Design Center at Kia Motors Corporation. “As a whole we believe the new Kia Sonet will be a fantastic SUV with a very compelling and attaching character to our young and young at heart, always connected customers in India and beyond…”
