The 2020 Kia Sonet has been doing the round of news on its latest updates. Recently the interiors of the car were also revealed which gave us more of an idea on it. The exterior of the car has already been seen multiple times. But let us make this clear to you that this is not the production-ready vehicle and we can expect some changes on the final vehicle. The car got an unveil at this year’s Auto Expo. This is our idea of what will appear on the production-ready model of the vehicle.
2020 Kia Sonet design
The 2020 Kia Sonet looked good on the design front when it was shown at the Auto Expo. Many of the features in the car were a head-turner. The overall dimensions of the car and will be the same as it was shown in the Expo as the car has to be a sub-four-metre one. Although it was shown with features like integrated door handles, dual exhaust tips, large tyres, chrome finish colour and dynamic lights. It is not sure as to how many of these features will indeed make it on the production-ready car and almost all of them could be left out.
Features and interiors
The interiors of the car were recently been leaked and it is indeed a mini Kia Seltos from the inside as well. Like the Kia Seltos, it will have loads of features to take on its rivals and includes the 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with UVO connect as seen on the Seltos. This feature will probably be on the higher variants of the car. The car also gets other features such as wireless charging facility, sunroof, ambient lighting, automatic climate control system, adjustable headrests, keyless entry and so on. The safety features will range from multiple airbags, Anti-lock brakes, reverse parking sensors and camera alongside a host of assistive technologies.
Engine and transmission
The 2020 Kia Sonet is expected to come with three engine options. There will be 2 different engines available in petrol which will include the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol that is good for 83bhp and 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol putting out 120 bhp along with a 90 bhp 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine. There will also be an AMT on offer in the higher variants along with a five-speed manual as standard.
2020 Kia Sonet pricing
Apart from all this the 2020 Kia Sonet will apply the same formula as the Kia Seltos and be priced very competitively and also be offered in a host of variants. The car was due for a launch in August but now the launch could be shifted due to the virus. It will be priced between Rs 7-12 lakh (ex-showroom) and compete with the likes of the Tata Nexon and the Hyundai Venue. The Kia Seltos has been one of the highest-selling cars in the country and the Kia Sonet which will be the third offering from the company also plans to do the same thing.
