Considering the company's Seltos model arrived with a multitude of features and creature comforts, expectations are that the Sonet will also arrive fully loaded, and will feature an eight-way Bose audio system.

Thoughts About The First TVC Of The Kia Sonet

We think the video is very well made. And we're impressed that Kia's video team decided to use Tron as an inspiration. The film won the Academy Award for Technical Achievement, was considered ground breaking, and was nominated for the Top 10 Science Fiction Films list in 2008.

We think Kia's trying to tell us something here!
