At the auto show in Indian New Delhi, the world premiere of the Kia Sonet crossover took place. The compact all-terrain vehicle made its debut as a concept, but in the future it will become a global model. The start of sales in the Indian market is scheduled for the second half of 2020.
The Sonet crossover is offered for the role of the third Kia Motors model in India, and its customers are seen by young people who are actively “communicating with the world”, leading an active lifestyle and are interested in technology. The bright appearance of the off-road vehicle is also addressed to them: the proprietary grille “tiger nose”, “hooks” of running lights and lanterns connected by an LED strip.
In the cabin, which was hidden behind the tinted windows, there is a media complex with a 10.25-inch display and a UVO Connect communication platform, as well as a Bose premium audio system. The manufacturer speaks of the most spacious cabin in the class and unique equipment, which is first available in the compact crossover segment.
The closest relative of Sonet is Hyundai Venue – and it is with it that the commodity version of the crossover will share the engine range. The Venue crossover in India is offered with three engines to choose from: an aspirated 1.2 (83 forces), a 1.4 diesel engine (90 forces) and a 1.0 petrol turbo engine (120 forces). Sonet is known to be equipped with an iMT manual gearbox.
There, in New Delhi, Kia showed the “off-road” Seltos X-Line Concept. It differs from ordinary crossovers with roof rails, wheel arch linings, bumpers, and underbody protection plates.
On the eve of Kia revealed Seltos specifications and prices for the Russian market. We will offer an all-terrain vehicle with aspirated engines 1.6 and 2.0, a 1.6 T-GDI turbo engine, three types of transmissions, front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The cost of the model varies from 1,099,900 to 1,999,900 rubles. The official start of sales is scheduled for March 2.
