The Kia Sonet is one of the most popular compact SUVs in India due to its elegant design, feature-rich interior, and potent engine options. Since its introduction in 2020, the Sonet has been a best-seller for the Korean brand. The facelifted Sonet has been spotted undergoing testing in India and South Korea, disclosing some of its forthcoming modifications. Here are some of the key details that you need to know about the upcoming Kia Sonet facelift like Interior features, Launch date And Price in India.
Upcoming Sonet facelift is expected to get some updates on the inside, such as a new dashboard design, a larger touchscreen infotainment system, and possibly a dual-screen setup with two 10.25-inch units. The Sonet facelift could also get a 360-degree surround-view camera, which would be a segment-first feature. The Sonet already offers many features such as ventilated seats, a sunroof, wireless charging, ambient lighting, and a Bose sound system, so we expect these to be carried over to the facelifted model as well.
The Sonet facelift is likely to make its global debut in India by the end of 2023 or early 2024. Kia has not confirmed the exact launch date yet, but we expect it to happen sometime next year. The Sonet facelift will be followed by the Seltos facelift, which is also due for launch in 2023.
Price in India:
The Sonet facelift is expected to be priced slightly higher than the current model, which starts from Rs 6.79 lakh and goes up to Rs 13.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The price hike could be justified by the additional features and design updates that the Sonet facelift will offer. However, we expect the price difference to be marginal, as Kia would want to maintain its competitive edge in the segment.
The Kia Sonet facelift will continue to compete with rivals such as the Hyundai Venue, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, and Mahindra XUV300. The Sonet facelift will aim to attract more buyers with its refreshed look and enhanced features. We are looking forward to seeing the final product and how it performs in the market.
