2024 Kia Sonet Facelift — Exterior Details
The Sonet facelift is likely to continue with the tiger nose grille design, albeit with a new mesh pattern. Apart from that, the Sonet facelift is also likely to feature a revised bumper design. Around the side, the image reveals a new design for the 16-inch alloy wheels. The test car featured red brake calipers, hinting that it could be the top-spec GT Line variant. While it isn’t very clear from the images, the small protrusion beneath the side mirrors suggest the Sonet facelift could also receive a 360-degree parking camera.

The big change, however, lies at the rear of the SUV. Like the Seltos, the Sonet is likely to get connected LED tail lights. The design of the tail lights is similar to that of the new Seltos facelift with a vertical orientation. The brake lights also carry a distinctive LED pattern, which looks inspired by the Seltos facelift. The lower bumper gets a prominent skid plate to finish off the SUV look.
2024 Kia Sonet Facelift Interior And Features
We are yet to catch a glimpse of the Sonet facelift’s interior. Since it is going to be a mid-life facelift, we do not expect Kia to offer any major changes on the inside. We can expect a new full-colour LCD instrument cluster to replace the current semi-digital unit. Apart from that, Kia could revise the centre console of the Sonet in a bid to make it look more clutter-free. Currently, the Sonet comes packed with features such as front ventilated seats, drive and traction modes, sunroof, Bose sound system and ambient lighting. The facelift is likely to carry the same set of features, including new additions like a semi-powered driver’s seat.

2024 Kia Sonet facelift Powertrain Options
On the powertrain front, the Sonet facelift is likely to carry the same set of engine and transmission options as the current model. Currently, the base variants of the Sonet offer a 1.2L normal petrol engine that produces 83PS of power at 6000rpm and 115Nm of torque at 4200rpm. The higher variants of the Sonet offer a 1.0L turbo petrol engine that offers 120PS of power at 6000rpm and 172Nm of torque between 1500rpm and 4000rpm and a 1.5L turbo diesel engine that produces 115PS of power at 4000rpm and 250Nm of torque between 1500rpm and 2750rpm. While the base petrol engine comes with a 5-speed manual transmission only, both the turbo petrol and turbo diesel engines offer auto-clutch manual transmission (ACMT) and automatic transmission options.
2024 Kia Sonet Facelift Launch Timeline
Given that Kia recently updated the Seltos facelift, it is clear that Kia have chosen the Seltos as their festive offering. Hence, we expect the Sonet facelift to hit showrooms in early 2024 and go up against a slew of B2-segment SUVs. The Sonet competes with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, Nissan Magnite and Renault Kiger.
