The Kia Sonet is likely to get three engines which are - 1.2-litre petrol, 1.0-litre turbo petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine in two states of tune. Expect the Sonet to get a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic and an iMT or intelligent manual transmission option as well. All three engine options are the same as on the Hyundai Venue, a sibling of the Kia Sonet. We expect the Kia Sonet prices to between Rs. 7 lakh and Rs. 12 lakh (ex-showroom).

Kia says that in phase-I, the Sonet will be manufactured exclusively in India and then exported to over 70 countries around the globe, a beautiful example of make-in-India, for the world.
