Kia India, the fastest-growing carmaker in the country, announced the launch of the Kia Sonet 1st anniversary edition to celebrate the first successful year of its smart urban-compact SUV. Building on its exquisite design-led identity, the Sonet 1st anniversary edition is a benchmark in vehicle design and offers a strikingly bold and wild look. The design of this anniversary edition variant is inspired by Aurochs, a large wild Eurasian bull, imparting a more muscular demeanour to the Sonet and is distinctively visible through the Aurochs inspired Front and Rear Skid plates with tangerine accents.
The exclusive tiger nose grille on the 1st anniversary edition features hot-stamped tangerine accents lending an undaunted outlook to the compact SUV. In addition to this, the new Sonet also features Aurochs side skid plates to offer a bolder and butch appeal to the vehicle along with side door garnish and centre wheel caps in tangerine accent and anniversary edition emblem. The Sonet 1st anniversary edition is available in four powertrains options, 1.0 T-GDi petrol engine with Smartstream 6iMT & 7DCT and 1.5-litre CRDi diesel engine with 6MT (in WGT configuration) & 6AT (in VGT configuration). The Anniversary edition Sonet is offered in four exterior colours – Aurora Black pearl, Glacier white pearl, Steel silver & Gravity grey, starting at an exciting price of INR 10,79,000 (ex-showroom, pan India) and are limited edition variants.
Mr. Tae-Jin Park, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Kia India said, “The Sonet has been one of our breakthrough products that have contributed to Kia’s success in India. With sales of more than one lakh units in less than a year, the Sonet has already established itself as one of India’s highest-selling compact SUVs. To celebrate this adoration, we are excited to launch the anniversary edition of the Sonet. Carved out of sheer design excellence, the Anniversary edition Sonet is based on the concept of Aurochs and boasts a muscular look offering a bolder and premium driving experience to our young-at-heart customers.”
