KIA has shared new images subcompact crossover Sonet, revealing the interior of the model. Also, there are details of the budget model, which will debut in India and will subsequently be released in other markets.
Judging by the sketches, salon Sonet was similar to the interior of the new KIA Sorento, but is a more modest version with a simplified design of the front panel. Sonet got a digital clean-up, combined into a single element with a 10.25-inch touchscreen multimedia system. The deflectors and the gear lever are enclosed in a robust metallic frame with engraving.
Looks Sonet has already been partly disclosed in the earlier teaser. Now KIA has published more detailed images of the exterior, which shows the massive bumpers, the developed wheel arches with plastic covers and taillights United by thin band.
The wheelbase of the crossover is 2.5 meters, like the related Hyundai Venue. Length will not exceed four metres – this will allow Sonet to fall under tax exemptions in India.
The base engine for the model will be a 1.2-liter atmospheric “four” with a capacity of 83 horsepower. Alternatively, will offer 120-strong “turbotron” T-GDI with a volume of 1.0 liter and 1.5-liter diesel engine capacity of 115 HP from the local KIA Seltos. Drive – only the front.
The premiere will be held on 7 August. It is expected that in India KIA Sonet receive a price tag below Seltos, the initial price which is 989 thousand rupees ($13.200). After the launch in the Indian market the car will appear in other countries.
