The first image of the SUV KIA Sonet

As a concept the Hyundai soplatformennika Venue debuted in the winter at the exhibition in Delhi: compact Sonet is addressed primarily to the Indian youth, and here will be produced. After the first video, KIA has published the first “static” picture of future trends.

While this is a design sketch, but KIA claim that it gives a complete idea of the exterior serial Sonet. The exterior of the crossover is called “confident and muscular”, which combines emotional design, imbued with a spirit of youthful enthusiasm, and sport energy. As it turns out, KIA stylists when designing the “face” Sonet used traditional elements (for example, the original grille), but at the same time were inspired by some of the national Indian motifs.

“This inspiration was only possible due to the great cultural heritage of India and addressed by our designers”, – said the head of the design centre KIA Karim Habib.

Sonet will be the second KIA model after the crossover Seltos, which was developed with a focus on the Indian market and will be manufactured at a local factory. However KIA do not hide their intentions in the future to make Sonet a global product – although did not specify in which countries it will appear.

Presumably, the engine range SUV will borrow from the related Hyundai Venue is 83-strong aspirated a volume of 1.2 l and a 120-horsepower liter turbo. All the missing parts KIA promises to reveal in the next few weeks.
