The dimensions of the upcoming Kia Sonet have been leaked through a brochure scan, revealing that the Sonet will have the highest ground clearance of the class.

The first public debut of Kia Sonet 2020 has been made by the South Korean company recently, revealing details of features, engine and transmission options of the much-awaited sub-four-metre SUV. Just a while ago, the leaked brochure of Kia Sonet has emerged on the Internet, thereby revealing the variants and dimension of the car.

While the Kia Sonet SUV may not be the biggest model of the lot, it surely knocks out its rivals with the highest ground clearance in the segment. The Kia Sonet ground clearance is rated at 211 mm. It also comes as the tallest SUV of the lot. The boot capacity is measured at 392 litres and here, the sub-four-metre SUV also features the biggest boot in its space.
