The Kia Sonet has finally made its global debut here in India. It is one of the highly anticipated launches of this year, foraying into the extremely popular subcompact SUV segment. Now the segment already has some of the bestselling models in the country and the Kia Sonet is a bit late to the party. Having said that, Kia has some tricks up its sleeve that should go a long way in helping the Sonet catch up. Just like the Seltos, even this one gets some segment-first features. Here are the top-five segment-first features the Sonet borrows from the Seltos.

The Kia Seltos was the first model to offer ventilated seats in the compact SUV segment and the Sonet is does the same in the subcompact SUV space. Just like the Seltos, the driver and front passenger seats will be ventilated with three level settings for air flow.

Integrated Air Purifier
While the Hyundai Venue too gets an air purifier, the Kia Sonet is gets a smart air purifier integrated in the front centre armrest. Again, it's the same unit we have seen in the Seltos.
We got a hint about the ambient lighting system from the teaser images of its images Kia Motors had revealed earlier. You get multiple colour options for the ambient lighting even in the Sonet and along with the interiors, you can also configure the background colour of the instrument panel.
Wireless Charger With Cooling Function
Overheating of your smartphone through wireless charging is an inevitable issue and you feel it every time you pick up your smartphone from the wireless tray. Well! not in the Sonet as that issue has been taken care of. While the Hyundai Venue gets a wireless charger as well, the Sonet is the first subcompact SUV to get a wireless charger with cooling function. What's also impressive is that the tray is neatly placed above the storage area in the central console, giving you some more free space.
