Yes, an iMT gearbox is expected on the Kia Sonet as it is a sibling of the Hyundai Venue. Both of them us the same platform and the iMT technology has been jointly developed by Kia and Hyundai. This technology might not be made available right from the launch but it might appear in the future stages of the products development.
All the features have been shown in the video one by one. Some of the key features include ventilated seats, wireless phone charges, BOSE sound system and Mobile connectivity called UVO connect. The UVO connect will have 57 features which can be controlled via your smartphone.
The Kia sonet will get 3 engine option as seen on the Hyundai Venue. 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol will be the peppiest. With that the 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel will be the mid variants. The gearbox options will be also vast with a 6-speed manual, iMT and a 7 Speed DCT. This car does not miss out any engine and gearbox option to beat the competition. It is also expected that the Kia Sonet will give 24.1 km/l which seems pretty amazing on paper. Kia Sonet launch will reveal the price of the car where we expect it to undercut the venue.
The only problem is that the venue already offers these engine options and features. Also, Hyundai has a better brand trust than Kia in India.
