Aimed at young-at-heart, tech-savvy buyers looking for a sophisticated modern design with fascinating features, Kia says it has packed the Sonet with a smooth, sweeping dashboard and a stylish, minimalist center console.
The dashboard provides car’s full range of user-friendly features, including a two-layer tray to store mobile devices and other items while driving. Taking center stage is its high-tech digital display and instrument cluster, featuring 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 the ability to select a different drive and traction modes. Air vents in the dashboard feature a metallic, diamond-knurled pattern, a chic and stylish design highlight.
Sonet sports an emotive and bold design, with bold design cues including the iconic ‘tiger-nose’ grille, three-dimensional ‘stepwell’ geometric grille mesh. The LED headlamps reiterate the ‘Wild by Design’ theme which has inspired the Sonet. It projects an aggressive stance with a rugged appeal.
First showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 as a concept, the all-new Kia Sonet is scheduled to make its world premiere on August 7.
“We are extremely excited to introduce the new Kia Sonet to the world, a compact SUV with a strong and muscular 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. Its uncompromising attention to detail and selection of colors and materials could have only be inspired by the great cultural heritage that our designers found all over India,” said Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Kia Global Design at Kia Motors Corporation.
Kia Sonet will feature an extensive list of active and passive safety equipment. It will come equipped with up to six airbags. The Sonet is Kia’s latest ‘Made-in-India’ product and will be available in many of the brand’s global markets.
