The Car is expected to come with a 1.0-litre Turbo GDi engine. There will also be a 1.2 and 1.5-litre engine with petrol and diesel fuel options respectively.
Along with the usual premium feature, it will also have UVO – Kia connected car system which will offer 57 remote control feature with navigation, safety and vehicle management.
Kia has been keen on making Kia Sonet a product that will be global and will be exported from India to Middle-East, Africa and Latin America. It will also make it to some parts of Asia.
Kookhyun Shim, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Kia Motors India said, “The Sonet has been engineered and built with Indian inputs and is a global model for Kia from India. India is the first country in the world where the Sonet goes on sale, and with the commencement of pre-bookings, we are confident our smart urban compact SUV will be warmly received in the country”
This clearly shows a shift in the global product strategy where India is being a pioneer in receiving a global product from a brand that is not just limited to India. For more such content stay subscribed to the Motoroctane Youtube, Google NEWS, Facebook and Twitter.
