Kia Sonet Dimensions, Powertrain & Variant Details Revealed

Kia is set to launch the Sonet in India in September, and ahead of the launch, its dimensions and engine specifications have been revealed online.

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).
