The deliveries of Kia Sonet started from September 18, 2020. The new Kia Sonet has registered more than 6,500 bookings so far that would lead to a higher waiting period.
Kia Motors is finally going to launch the most-awaited Kia Sonet SUV in India and we all expect the new Sonet will gain the same success that the Kia Seltos has achieved. Within the first day of commenced bookings, the Kia Sonet has garnered over 6,500 pre-orders that posts a healthy customer demand leading to a longer waiting period. To recap, the Kia Seltos has also racked up a high number of bookings in India that results in a long waiting period extended up to 5 months. As for the Kia Sonet, we expect the waiting period of the car will soar up to 3 months and even more in some select cities.
The all-new Kia Sonet is coming with a wide range of variant choices thanks to three engines and five transmission options on tap. Interestingly, it should be the lower trims that command the longest waiting period. The base HTE petrol MT variant will require around 8 – 9 weeks for the vehicles delivered at your home. Whereas, the waiting periods for other trims level will be at around 4 - 7 weeks. We hope that with the increasing demands for the Sonet in times to come if any, the South Korean carmaker will ramp up the production to churn out the quickest vehicle delivery. Do note that 6.5k unit bookings unit has been not only a record for Kia but also for the while Indian auto market. The good momentum is anticipated towards the next months since the industry is in the festive boom.
As you might know, Kia Motors has been really excelled in making available display vehicles. While in most of the cases for other companies, the cars would arrive at dealerships right at launch time, the Kia Sonet has already reached its dealer stockyards a few weeks away from its launch. It’s a good initiative that will prevent a larger number of buyers from getting disappointed as well as keep itself from hurry after the event. For now, tet’s us not repeat what the Sonet has to offer here as we’ve repeatedly reported you the freshest details on the Kia Sonet specifications or the features the Sonet has over Hyundai Venue, Maruti Vitara Brezza and more.
What we know for now is that the automatic variants of the Sonet seem to receive much interest from the customers. Some sources revealed that both the turbo-diesel and turbo-petrol automatic variants of the Sonet have appealed to a wide set of buyers from the domestic auto space. That said, it’s also interesting to find out that the demand for diesel-powered models is still on the rise, despite the decent price tags post BS6 rollout. The Kia Sonet launch is happening today. The prices of the Sonet SUV are set for Rs 8 – 12 lakh (estimated, ex-showroom). It would be really interesting to see the new Kia Sonet fuels the fire in the already-crowded sub-four-metre SUV segment.
