Kia Motors India on Friday announced that following the world debut on August 7, the upcoming Sonet compact SUV will be launched in India this festive season.

Sonet has already made an entry on Kia India's official web portal. The company also recently revealed the SUV in its official design pictures. Facade of the Sonet will sport Kia’s distinctive design DNA featuring iconic ‘tiger nose’ grille with a 3D ‘stepwell’ geometric grille mesh. The production-spec Sonet will be a very close adaptation of the Sonet concept which made its presence felt at the Auto Expo 2020.

As revealed in official images, on the inside, Sonet will feature a very up to date cabin space boasting a first-in-segment 10.25-inch HD touchscreen and navigation system with UVO Connected technologies. Its smooth, sweeping dashboard along with a minimalist center console will lend its interior a very classy touch.

It will feature a metallic, diamond-knurled pattern over its vertically framed air vents. Kia's new compact SUV will also come with some other promising features such as steering wheel-mounted controls, different drive and traction modes.

Kia Sonet promises a very modern and feature packed cabin with a smooth, sweeping dashboard and a good looking, minimalist center console.
