The upcoming SUV will feature a lot of unique design elements of the concept model, which was showcased early this year at the 2020 Auto Expo, however, in toned-down form. One of the most appealing elements here is the two rectangular LED taillights, which are connected full-width red coloured strip.
The taillamps feature squarish element, but the strip connecting them doesn’t light up. The images of the SUV leaked earlier shows that the concave boot lid showcased with the concept model has been smoothened out, but the chunky skid plate remains the same. The front fascia of the Sonet is not visible here but is expected to look quite aggressive. Upfront, the production-spec Kia Sonet will employ ‘Tiger Nose’ grille upfront, silver-coloured faux skid plate and sporty looking bumper. Once launched, it’ll compete with the likes of Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Maruti Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport. The carmaker will soon reveal the official feature list of the car.
Dimensionally, the all-new Kia Sonet will be 3,995 mm long, 1,770 mm wide and 1,605 mm tall. The car will have a wheelbase of 2,500 mm. The carmaker has said that the all-new Sonet will come loaded with a lot of segment-first features.
