New Delhi: Kia Motors India on Friday has launched much-awaited SUV Sonet at a starting price of INR 6.71 lakh (ex-showroom, India).

The diesel 6MT starts at INR 8.05 lakh (ex-showroom) while the turbo variants start at INR 9.49 lakh (ex-showroom) with 6iMT gearbox and INR 10.49 lakh (ex-showroom) with 7-DCT gearbox. The top-end diesel automatic and 1.0-liter turbo with 6iMT is priced at INR 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom).

The Kia Sonet compact SUV gets over 30 segment-first features. The compact SUV is a made-in-India model and will be exported to several overseas markets.

The Kia Sonet will be offered with three engine options of 1.2-litre petrol, 1.0-litre turbo petrol and the 1.5-litre turbo diesel. These engines can either be coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission or the 6-speed DCT or the all-new 6-speed iMT gearbox.
