Take a look at this GT Line trim of Kia Sonet as it now rides on a set of aftermarket 17-inch alloy wheels. Read here to know more details.
Kia Sonet registered a sales of over 9,000 units in its very first month after the launch. Lucrative pricing, multiple engine-gearbox options, numerous trim options, and a plethora of equipment on offer are the reasons that have helped the Sonet in clocking big numbers. Since the deliveries have begun in full swing, the Sonet is not all that tough a sight on the Indian roads. Also, some owners have already got their possessions installed with massive aftermarket rims. Here’s one, which now rides on a set of 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, which are sourced from Plati Alloys India. These rims were installed by Monga Tyres, who are based out of Ludhiana, Punjab.
These 5-spoke rims are bigger by an inch in comparison to the OEM units. Therefore, they fill the wheel arches in a better way. Also, they make the Sonet look sportier. This particular car is the range-topping GTX+ trim of the Sonet, and it gets a 1.5L oil burner under its hood, which comes mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission here. With the 6-speed AT, the oil burner on the Sonet puts out a peak power output of 115 PS and max torque of 250 Nm.
However, with the 6-speed manual gearbox, this 1.5L diesel engine churns out a rated output of 100 PS and 240 Nm only. Along with the diesel engine, the GT Line trim of the Sonet can be had with a 1.0L turbo-petrol motor as well. This petrol unit is designed to develop a peak power output of 120 PS and max torque of 172 Nm. It can be had mated to either a 6-speed iMT or a 7-speed DCT.
Apart from the GTX+ trim, there are five more trims on offer, namely HTE, HTK, HTK+, HTX, and HTX+. The Sonet comes with a slew of best-in-segment features, such as 10.25-inch touchscreen for the infotainment unit, Bose sound system, ventilated front seats, air purifier, and remote engine start. Also, the Sonet comes loaded with an electronic sunroof, automatic climate control, keyless entry with start-stop button, UVO Connect, wireless phone charging and more. Kia Sonet rivals the likes of Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport, Maruti Vitara Brezza, and Mahindra XUV300.
