Kia Motors Corporation is all set to launch the much anticipated Sonet SUV in the country on Friday. The delivery of the car, manufactured by Kia Motors Corporation’s Indian subsidiary Kia Motors India in its Anantapur facility, will also commence on the same date.
The new model Sonet comes in petrol and diesel engine versions and a wide range of powertrain options. The model comes with two petrol engine versions—1.2-litre four-cylinder and 1.0 T-GDi—and a 1.5-litre CRDi diesel engine. The Sonet comes with five transmission options: five- and six-speed manuals, an intuitive seven-speed DCT, six-speed automatic, and Kia's new six-speed intelligent manual transmission.
Additionally, automatic variants of the Sonet offer multi-drive and traction modes for added convenience, driver-confidence and safety. The 1.5-litre diesel engine is offered with a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic transmission.
The car was unveiled last month by the automaker. The company has made it clear that it will export the new SUV to foreign markets alongside Seltos SUV which currently is sold across 70 nations.
