Kia India reported the highest-ever monthly sales of 25,857 units in September 2022. The manufacturer was able to surpass CY21 sales in just nine months of CY22.

Carens is also doing fairly well despite being an MPV. Kia sold 5,233 units of Carens. Finally, there is the Carnival which is a luxury MPV and is the most expensive ICE-product in Kia's line-up. The manufacturer sold 333 units of Carnival.

In August 2022, Kia celebrated the 3rd anniversary of being in the Indian market. The manufacturer's latest launch was the Sonet X-Line, which is the new top-end variant of the Sonet. It is available in two engine options, a diesel and a petrol. The petrol costs ₹13.39 lakh (ex-showroom) whereas the diesel engine is priced at ₹13.99 lakh (ex-showroom). Both versions come mated to an automatic transmission only and they are based on the top-end version.
The changes to the Sonet X-Line are cosmetic only. It gets an exclusive Matte Graphite Exterior paint colour, Splendid Sage dual-tone interior theme and crystal-cut alloys with black high gloss. Because it is based on the top-end trim, it comes loaded with all the bells and whistles.
