  • The Kia Sonet subcompact SUV will get 3 engines & 5 transmissions
  • The Kia Sonet will get a segment-first diesel automatic & IMT unit
  • The Sonet is expected to be priced agressively between Rs. 7-12 lakh

Kia Motors India is all set to launch the Sonet subcompact SUV tomorrow and we are all curious to know what it will be priced at. From what we know, the company will price it extremely aggressively and given how many variants there are on offer, the company is looking for an overwhelming response. The fact that the automaker received more than 6500 bookings on  the very first day after bookings opened, gives you a understanding of how popular this segment is and also how interested customers are to buying the Sonet. We expect the Kia Sonet to be priced between ₹ 7 and 12 lakh in the country and do not at all dismiss the chance of an aggressive introductory price on the car.
