    by Saransh Goyal on Monday, Sep 21 2020

    Kia launched the Sonet on 18 September 2020. The carmaker announced the prices of all its variants, but the top-spec GTX+ with the automatic transmission. Kia is now expected to announce the price of the Sonet GTX+ automatic variant by September end. The carmaker did a similar thing with the Seltos when it went on sale in August 2019.

     

    Kia Sonet

    Kia offers the Sonet in six variants: HTE, HTK, HTK+, HTX, HTX+ and GTX+. It can be had with three engine options to choose from including a 1.2-litre petrol (83PS/115Nm), a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine (120PS/172Nm) and a 1.5-litre diesel engine (100PS/240Nm). However, the GTX+ variant is available with the 1.0-litre turbo petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel engine only. Currently, the 1.0-litre engine is offered with a 6-speed iMT (clutchless manual transmission), the diesel engine gets a 6-speed manual transmission in the GTX+ variant.

    In the GTX+ automatic variant, Kia will offer a 7-speed DCT with the petrol engine. The diesel engine, on the other hand, will be offered with a 6-speed torque converter typre automatic transmission. The same engine-transmission combinations are available in the HTK+ variant as well.

    The GTX+ automatic variants will also get some additional features over the manual variants in the form of multiple driving modes and multiple traction modes. Both the features are transmission-specific and are already available on the HTK+ automatic variants as well. 

    Currently, prices of the Sonet range from Rs 6.71 lakh to Rs 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) with both petrol and diesel versions of the GTX+ manual variant being priced at Rs 11.99 lakh. So, we expect the prices of GTX+ automatic variants of both petrol and diesel engine to be priced at Rs 12.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The Sonet rivals the likes of the Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Toyota Urban Cruiser.
