Kia Sonet Exterior And Interior Design

Kia Sonet Exterior And Interior Design

The Kia Sonet is the third model from the South-Korean carmaker in the Indian market. The Sonet is positioned in the competitive sub-4-metre SUV segment in the Indian market and below the Seltos in the brand’s product lineup. The Kia Sonet comes with an extremely bold and sporty design, with plenty of aggressive styling elements, making it an attractive offering in its segment.

Starting from the front, the Kia Sonet comes with the brand’s ‘tiger-nose’ grille with a black mesh and red inserts. The grille itself is surrounded by a knurl-finished chrome strip, adding character. The grille is further flanked by the brand’s ‘Crown-Jewel’ LED projector headlamps with integrated LED DRLs, which double up as turn indicators as well. The front bumper houses the fog lamps at either ends while also having the central air dam with silver elements and red highlights.

The side and rear profile of the Kia Sonet continues to feature the same sporty design. The side profile of the SUV comes with stylish 16-inch crystal-cut alloy wheels, with the wheel arches covered in black cladding. The side profile also comes with silver finished roof rails and chrome door handles. 

The rear profile features Kia’s heartbeat LED tail lamps which are connected through a thin reflector strip. The bottom part of the bumper is finished in gloss black and features silver accents for the fake exhaust ports and a faux diffuser as well.

Inside, the Kia Sonet comes with a very premium feel. The cabin is made up of soft-touch materials, leatherette upholstery and plastic parts. The leatherette upholstery extends to the seats, gear lever, steering wheel and the side door panels. The Sonet features a large fixture which houses the instrument cluster and the 10.25-inch infotainment system, which gives the car an upmarket look.
