Ever wondered, how good is Kia Sonet's Bose sound system? Take a look at this video to find out the answer.
Kia Sonet is shattering all the records ever made by any Kia car in the Indian market. The Sonet has received over 50,000 bookings in just two months. Helping it do so are a lot of aspects that Sonet excels on. It features nice-looking exterior, loaded interior, and multiple engine-gearbox combinations. While everyone might have a different feature to fall for, the sound system remains constant in everyone’s list. Therefore, Kia is offering the Sonet with a Bose sound system, which is borrowed from the bigger Seltos. Sadly, it is only available in the range-topping HTX+ and GTX+ variants. But how good is the sound output? Here’s a video that showcases the same. This video was uploaded by Plus Drive on their YouTube channel.
In the video, the host starts by showcasing the placement of sub-woofer and other speakers. He then gets back to the driver seat and pairs his phone to the Sonet’s infotainment unit that comes with a 10.25-inch touchscreen display. Then, he starts playing the music at low volumes and moves the camera around every speaker. The volume is then increased to its max capacity.
Also, he keeps switching back and forth for different equalizer sound presets and ambient light themes. Well, according to the host, the Sonet has the best sound system in its segment. Even the Team Indian Auto felt the same, during the first drive of Kia Sonet. Another aspect that host talks about in the video is vibrations. He adds, there are no vibrations whatsoever when the sound system is used at full volume and maxed out bass settings.
The Sonet is offered in the Indian market with three engine options. There’s a 1.2L N/A petrol that puts out 84 PS and 113 Nm, and it can be had mated to a 5-speed MT only. The next on the list is a 1.0L turbo-petrol motor that develops 120 PS of peak power and 172 Nm of max torque. It is offered with two transmission choices – 6-speed iMT and 7-speed DCT. The last option on the list is a 1.5L oil burner that churns out a peak power output of 115 PS and max torque of 250 Nm. It can be had paired to either a 6-speed MT or 6-speed AT.
