Kia Sonet will be available with three choices of engines, 1.2-litre petrol, 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol, and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. According to the dealership, the 1.2-litre petrol line will be sold at Rs 6.5 lakh for the base variant and Rs 8.5 lakh for the top-spec variant. The diesel-powered variants might be offered at the starting price of Rs 8.00 lakh and the top-spec diesel variant can cost up to Rs 11.50 lakh. The turbocharged petrol GT Line variants will be the most expensive with a starting price of Rs 8.5 lakh. However, the costliest variant powered by the turbo-petrol engine will be available at Rs. 11.5 lakh, just around the same price of the top-spec diesel variant. It is confirmed by Kia Motors that the Kia Sonet will be offered in Tech Line and GT Line. There will be a total of seven trims, namely, HTE, HTK, HTX, HTX+, GTK, GTX, and GTX+.
In previous reports, Kia Sonet was expected to be priced above the 10 lakh mark. However, it seems that Kia has a change of heart and wants to lower the price of the Kia Sonet, hence increasing the competitiveness of the new sub-four-meter SUV.
