Kia Unveils Updated Sonet with Stylish Facelift and Advanced Features

The updated Kia Sonet is finally here folks! This compact SUV has gone under the knife for a mid-life facelift. At first glance, the changes may seem subtle – a tweaked grille, redesigned headlamps and tail lamps, some snazzy new alloy wheels. But peek inside and you’ll notice the Sonet really stepping up its game.

The highlight is the new 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, similar to its bigger cousin, the Seltos. Love the futuristic vibe it brings! There’s also a refreshed dashboard design and climate control screen. Not forgetting some fancy new ADAS safety tech like forward collision and lane keep assist on higher trims.

Under the hood, no changes with the trusty 1.2-liter petrol, 1.0-liter turbo petrol and 1.5-liter diesel engines on offer. Good thing Kia decided to bring back the diesel-manual option which will appeal to driving enthusiasts. Both auto and manual transmissions available depending on engine and variant.

With its refreshed look and added tech, the Sonet seems all set to take on rivals like the Venue, Brezza and Nexon. Kia will likely bump up prices but we expect strong interest from compact SUV buyers who are looking for good features and performance.

Overall, the updated Sonet checks the right boxes – it retains the fun youthful character of the original but feels more polished and premium now. Existing owners can consider this as a worthy upgrade option while new buyers may find the facelift’s mix of style, features and practicality rather compelling. Let’s wait for the official launch in January 2023 to see the final pricing.
