Kia Sonet will have a lot in common with the Hyundai Venue. The upcoming SUV will borrow the platform and the engine options from its Hyundai-sibling. Hence, the upcoming compact SUV will get three choices of engines, including 1.2-litre petrol, a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol and a 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine. The non-turbo petrol engine will be mated exclusively with a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the turbocharged unit will come with two transmission choices, a 6-speed iMT (intelligent manual transmission) and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. For the diesel engine, there will be just one transmission option in the form of a 6-speed manual gearbox. However, it is likely that Kia will introduce an automatic option for the diesel engine in the future. Even though the official booking will only commence after the car is revealed, at this point, some Kia dealers have started accepting pre-launch bookings from customers at a token price of Rs 25,000.
