    The Sonet will be based on the Hyundai Venue, and will have exactly the same length and wheelbase as the Hyundai. However, it will be wider and taller than the Venue. Here’s a comparison of the dimensions of both the cars.

    The Sonet will also share the petrol engine options with the Venue. So both the 1.2-litre normal petrol engine and the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine will be on offer. Both will be available in the same state of tune as the Venue, however, the 1.0-litre engine will not be available with a conventional manual transmission and will be on offer with the auto-clutch manual transmission (iMT) and 7DCT (dual clutch automatic transmission).

    Sonet will also get the Venue’s diesel engine with manual transmission in the same state of tune, however, Kia will offer a 115PS version of this engine as well with a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission -- the same combination that is on offer on the larger Kia Seltos SUV as well.

    The option of automatic transmission, with both turbo-petrol and diesel engine, will be on the HTK+ and GTX+ variants only. The diesel engine, with manual transmission, will be available on all the variants. Here’s the variant-wise powertrain break-up of the Sonet.
