The Sonet is the subcompact sister to the much-awaited Kia Seltos.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1685525140735-0'); });

In these spyshots provided by autonetmagz.com, we could see that the Sonet’s overall proportions and camouflage is akin to this leak spotted by Cardekho in India recently.

The Sonet shares a platform with the Hyundai Venue and is expected to feature the same engine and gearbox choices:

  • 1.0-litre turbocharged engine (83 PS / 114 Nm)
  • 1.2-litre naturally aspirated mill (120 PS / 171 Nm) 
  • 1.5-litre diesel (100 PS / 114 Nm)
  • Choice of 6-speed manual, 7-speed dual-clutch automatic and Hyundai’s new clutchless manual 6-speed iMT

The Kia Sonet is expected to make its Indian debut on August 7.
