Kia Motors is actively testing their new Sonet small SUV in India. Spied on test appeared to be in a near production ready format, Sonet made its debut as a concept at the 2020 Auto Expo earlier this month. The Kia Sonet will take on the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV300 and Tata Nexon in this highly competitive compact sub 4 meter SUV segment.

New Kia Sonet is based on the Hyundai Venue platform and will be positioned below the Seltos in the Kia India lineup. It will see features such as LED head lights and tail lamps, tiger nose front grille, 17” alloy wheels and number plate housing on rear bumper. Below is the first official TVC video of Kia Sonet SUV.

Kia Sonet spy image reveals plush interior

Expected to launch sometime this year (assuming an early end to the Coronavirus crisis), the Sonet looks bigger, chunkier and more SUV like. And what we can tell you is that, unlike the Venue, which looks a bit plain on the inside, the Sonet is attractive and plush looking. Spy pictures show a cabin that is specced up to the gills. This GT line interior, to begin with, is finished in black and beige, the latter seen at the bottom of the door pads. The Transys made leather seats have double-stitched piping in red and what you can tell by looking at the centre console is that they are ventilated. On top of the centre console sits what looks like Kia's massive 10.25-inch touchscreen and infotainment system. Expect the same slick screen quality and features as on the Seltos, including connected-car tech. And right next to it is a hooded instrument panel that looks similar too.

Kia Sonet To Be Launched In Time For The Festive Season


The Coronavirus Crisis has definitely put off many plans that automakers in India had and many new launches have been pushed ahead to a later date. That said, there are some carmakers who still are trying to meet the deadline and keep up with their commitment. Kia Motors India has too confirmed that it will not delay the launch of its upcoming subcompact SUV in India and will stick to the festive season timeline. The South Korean carmaker had unveiled the Sonet subcompact SUV in February this year at the Auto Expo 2020 and now has confirmed that the car will go on sale in India in Q2 FY2021.
