At an expected starting price of 6.99 lakh, the Kia Sonet will undercut some of its rivals such as Maruti Vitara Brezza and Mahindra XUV300, both of which start at a slightly higher price tag of 7.34 lakh and 7.95 lakh, respectively. It will also lock horns with the Hyundai Venue and Tata Nexon which start from 6.70 lakh and 6.99 lakh, respectively.

Kia Sonet will feature three engine options and five gearbox configurations. There will be an entry-level 83 PS, 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine with a 5-speed manual transmission. This will deliver an ARAI-rated fuel economy of 18.4 kmpl.

In the former option will return 18.2 kmpl while the latter will deliver 18.3 kmpl. The Sonet will also be available with a 1.5-litre diesel engine in 110 PS and 115 PS states.

The amount of buzz that Sonet has been able to generate in the market is a sign that the Korean automaker has once again hit the right chords. And Sonet is in fact one of the most anticipated products and biggest car launches of the year.
