The rendering showcases the production-ready design language of the much-awaited Kia Sonet, which is the second ‘made in India’ car after Seltos
Highlighting its youthful design, Kia Motors India has revealed the first official rendering of the new production-spec Kia Sonet compact SUV. Officially announced at the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo, the image unveils the striking new design language adopted by Kia engineers for this sporty and compact SUV. Aimed to deliver strong road presence and carry the Kia family design, Sonet combines signature design traits, such as the prominent ‘tiger-nose’ grille, with a three-dimensional ‘stepwell’ geometric grille mesh for a strong visual impression. Upon launch, the Sonet will stand out not only due to its eye-catching design, but also with its excellent build quality, class-leading features, connectivity innovations, choice of powertrains, and comprehensive safety equipment.
The Sonet will be the second ‘made in India’ car from Kia, following the introduction of the Kia Seltos. The new model will appeal to consumers worldwide and will make its global premiere shortly, followed by its market debut in India during the upcoming festive season. Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Kia Design Centre, Kia Motors Corporation stated “With the new Kia Sonet, we had the ambition to give this compact SUV a strong and muscular character found only in much larger vehicles. With this in mind, we have designed what we believe is a great SUV with a uniquely sporty attitude, a confident stance, and a dynamic silhouette. We also gave the new Kia Sonet uncompromising attention to detail and a selection of colours and materials that could have only be inspired by the great cultural heritage that our designers found all over India”. The new Kia Sonet is targeted at a younger generation who are tech-savvy, aspirational, and socially connected.
