The Kia Sonet has become one of the best selling compact SUVs within a few months of it launching. Today we came across this Sonet GTX Turbo which has been fitted with 20-inch alloys.
The Kia Sonet had pretty big shoes to step into. Its bigger sibling, the Seltos has been a very successful model for the brand in its 1 year of being on sale. Fortunately, the Sonet has been liked by the Indian consumer just as much, already finding over 20,000 happy owners since its launch a couple of months ago. Its eye-catching design, feature-packed variants, and aggressive pricing have made it the top-selling compact SUV in the Indian market currently. That’s even more impressive when you realize it competes against the new Nissan Magnite, Tata Nexon, and Hyundai Venue in a crowded segment. But what are the options for the Kia Sonet if you want to spend some cash on aftermarket products? Surely such a new vehicle in the segment won’t have many options. Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that there are already several third-party manufacturers who have started offering upgrades to the Sonet, and we came across these fetching rims for the compact SUV.
The pictures have been uploaded by velocity_tyres on Instagram, and we can see this Kia Sonet GTX Turbo DCT getting a new set of alloys. The alloys are much bigger than the factory fitted ones, being 20-inch units. It is a 5 spoke design with dual-tone paint finish and are shod with 255/35/20 low profile tyres. The wheels are going well with the Sonet’s design and overall colour scheme as well. You can direct message velocity_tyres on their Instagram and contact them if you would like to purchase these alloy wheels for your Sonet.
The Kia Sonet comes with three engine options, 2 petrol, and 1 diesel. The 1.2-litre petrol makes 83 PS/115 Nm of peak figures and is paired with a 5-speed manual while the 1.0 turbo-petrol makes 120 PS/172 Nm of max power and torque and is mated to a 6-speed iMT or 7-speed DCT. The 1.5-litre oil-burner comes in either 100 PS/240 Nm or 115 PS/250 Nm states of tunes and you get two gearbox choices, a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed auto. Prices for the Sonet start at Rs 6.71 lakh and goes up to Rs 12.99 lakh (ex-showroom) for the all bells and whistles GTX Plus Turbo DCT.
