The Kia Sonet is a popular subcompact SUV with a sleek exterior, a spacious interior, and a variety of options. The Sonet was introduced in India in 2020 and has proven to be a success for the Korean automaker. Kia, on the other hand, is not resting on its laurels and plans to release a facelifted version of the Sonet in 2024. The Upcoming Kia Sonet most intriguing feature is that it will be available in a 7 seater configuration, making it more suitable to larger families.
Upcoming Kia Sonet 7 Seater Exterior Looks
The outward design of the Upcoming Kia Sonet 7 Seater will be based on the 5-seat form. The exterior of the 7-seater Sonet will be identical to the existing model. Full LED headlamps with LED DRLs, projector fog lamps, R16 alloy wheels, chrome radiator grille, motorised body coloured ORVMs, and LED rear combo lamps are among the highlights. The only difference will be the installation of a third row of seats, which will significantly expand the SUV’s length and height.
Interior Features of Upcoming Kia Sonet 7 Seater
The inside of the Kia Sonet 7 Seater will be comparable to that of the 5-seat form, with a few small differences. A 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment display, a digitised driver’s display, automatic climate control, ventilated front seats, a single-pane sunroof, and a wireless phone charger will be standard on the dashboard. The second row will have split-folding with adjustable headrests and armrests. The third row of seats will be foldable and will include cup holders as well as USB ports. The extra seats will limit boot capacity, but it will still be suitable for daily use.
