New Kia Sonet 7 Seater: Expected Engine & Mileage


Kia Motors, the South Korean automaker, has recently revealed its new 7-seater version of the Sonet compact SUV in Indonesia. The Sonet, which was launched in India in 2020, is a 5-seater sub-4 meter SUV that competes with the likes of Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Maruti Vitara Brezza, and others. The 7-seater Sonet, however, is a slightly longer and taller vehicle that can accommodate two more passengers in the third row. The 7-seater Sonet is expected to be launched in India by the end of 2023 or early 2024.

The diesel engine option, which is a 1.5-litre turbocharged unit with 100 PS and 240 Nm, is not offered in the Indonesian market.
