Rumour: Kia Sonet to be priced from Rs. 6.99 lakh

While Kia is gearing up to launch the Sonet this festive season, a document with the ex-showroom prices of the car has been leaked online.

We can’t confirm the authenticity of this document, but according to the price list, the 1.2L petrol version of the Sonet could be priced between Rs. 6.99 lakh and Rs. 8.29 lakh. The price of the turbo petrol variants could range between Rs. 9.49 lakh and Rs. 11.99 lakh.

The base diesel (HTE) could be priced at Rs. 8.39 lakh, while the top-spec GTX Plus Diesel AT variant could cost Rs. 12.99 lakh.

The Kia Sonet shares its underpinnings with the Hyundai Venue. Like the Seltos, the sub-4 m SUV will also be offered in multiple variants broadly classified into two trim levels – GT Line and Tech Line.

The Sonet will be offered with three engine options. These include a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine producing 82 BHP @ 6,300 rpm and 115 Nm @ 4,200 rpm paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine producing 118 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 172 Nm @ 1,500-4,000 rpm. This engine will be offered with either a 6-speed iMT or 7-speed DCT.

The Sonet will also come with a 1.5-litre diesel engine that will be offered in two states of tune. The lower-spec engine produces 99 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 240 Nm @ 1,500-2,750 rpm and is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The higher-spec engine is equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger. It produces 113 BHP @ 4,000 rpm and 250 Nm @ 1,500-2,750 rpm and comes paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
