The Kia sonnet share foundations with its cousin carmaker Hyundai venue. Kia somehow has pulled new features to make sure that SONET goes one up as comparison to Hyundai venue and other compact SUV rivals like Tata Nexon, ford Ecosport, and Mahindra XUV 300.

Kia has made some interior and exterior upgradation so that it looks some more upgraded from the cousin venue. Kia takes quite an effort to do so, like Kia’s tiger nose grill meshes well with the LED headlights and carved bonnet adds more visual muscle.

The interior hasn’t been revealed yet we can expect to have some of the best line features from south Korean carmaker. Some part of the list is like 10.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the UVO connected car tech, sound system from BOSE and along with the screen it comes with sound mood lightening, also provide some powertrain options. As the engine is same as the engine in Hyundai venue, in SONET they provide -speed manual transmission option with intelligent manual transmission (IMT) as well. With IMT kia’s SONET provide more comfort to the drivers as it features auto-rev matching eliminating the use of clutch while shifting gears.
