    CarWale's Take on Kia Sonet [2020-2022]

    • Good Things
      • Flamboyant styling
      • Easy to drive, refined motors
      • Boot capacity
    • Could be Better
      • Slightly stiffer ride quality
      • The second-row seat isn’t spacious

    Kia Sonet [2020-2022] Verdict

    The Kia Sonet packs a punch owing to the handsome looks, feature-loaded cabin, and a plethora of powertrain choices. And with more than 17 trims to choose from, there’s a Sonet for everyone! 

    Kia Sonet [2020-2022] Review

    We drove the Sonet with the turbo-petrol and iMT transmission. Here's what it's all about.

    What is it?

    Why would I buy it?

    iMT tech works great with the turbo petrol engine, loaded with features

    Why would I avoid it?

    Not the most spacious rear bench, ride quality on the stiffer side

    Right Front Three Quarter

    We have already seen the production-ready Kia Sonet in detail but what remained was the drive experience. We finally have it with us for the day and we’re going to tell you what it’s all about.  

    Talking about the design, frankly, I was blown away by the concept that was shown at the Auto expo. However, in comparison, I feel the production version has been watered down a little too much as I expected Kia to go a tad bolder.

    Front view

    But if I remove the concept image from my head, the Sonet still comes up as a good looking SUV. The front is dominated by the signature tiger nose grille and is flanked by heart shaped LED DRL’s and the crown jewel LED headlamps. You also get a turbo shaped detail on the air dam that looks really good. The mandatory front skid plate is also present, giving it an aggressive face.

    Right Side View

    Moving to the side, you get a thin cladding running across the car and what I like is that it is not overdone. The muscular wheel arches cover the 16-inch crystal cut wheels well. What you can also notice is that the colour of the roof extends down to the A-pillar, giving it a sporty touch. Also, the C–pillar has a unique design and gets a wrap-around rear-windscreen.

    Right Rear Three Quarter

    The rear is a little too subtle going by the standards set at the front. Adding a little drama are the heart-beat LED tail lamps and a busy bumper design, that also get the skid-plate with diffuser elements along with the faux exhaust design.

    Overall, the Sonet’s design is something that will be liked by all and hated by none, but I just wish it had more elements from the concept to make it stand out.

    Rear view

    How is it on the inside?

    Dashboard

    On the inside, you are welcomed by what Kia calls the kinetic art lounge experience. While we aren’t sure what that means, we can tell you that this is a good place to be in.

    The interior colours vary depending on the variant and what we are driving here is the GT line that gets all black interiors.

    Front Row Seats

    Talking about the seats, they are generous and offer plenty of support. Even the view is clear and it’s one of the few cars where you can see right till the end of the bonnet.

    Rear Seats

    The rear bench though isn’t as generous. Now, it is not so cramped that your knees will hit the front seats, but it is just about adequate. Even seating three abreast will be a bit of a squeeze and the Sonet is at best a comfortable four-seater. 

    Bootspace

    Boot space however is one of the Sonet’s fortes and at 392 litres, it is one of the best in its segment.

    Talking about features, the big attraction here is the massive 10.25-inch screen similar to the Seltos, it’s one massive housing that includes the speedometer console as well. The dashboard is well laid out but is a busy design. Another cool design touch are the vertical air-con vents, which I might add, are very effective as well.

    Infotainment System

    Apart from the usual barrage of connectivity options, it also gets BT multi connection where two devices can be connected to the head unit at the same time. Taking care of audiophiles is the banging seven-speaker Bose audio system which is brilliant.

    The Sonet also gets a barrage of other interesting features. You get a sunroof, wireless phone charging with cooling function, front ventilated seats, smart air purifier with virus protection (yes, you heard that right), perfume dispenser with three fragrances, UVO connected car technology with 57 features, and more.

    Instrument cluster

    The Sonet also get voice commands which is a fairly common feature, but in the Sonet it ends up doing a little more with its ‘Hello Kia’ voice commands. You can ask it to roll the window down, adjust the aircon, or even ask about the weather amongst other things.

    Safety has been covered well in the Sonet too. You get six airbags, vehicle stability management, ESC, and ABS. It also gets an emergency stop signal where the brake lights blink rapidly under hard braking.

    How does it drive?

    Right Front Three Quarter

    The Sonet gets a long list of engine and powertrain options to choose from. You have a 1.0-litre turbo petrol, a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol, 1.5 litre WGT diesel, and a 1.5-litre VGT diesel.

    What we are driving here is the 1.0-litre turbo with the six-speed iMT gearbox pushing out 120bhp and 172 Nm of torque.

    Right Front Three Quarter

    Right off the bat, the engine feels refined and pretty energetic. Part throttle is all you need to dispatch slow moving traffic. But if you want to hurry things up, the turbo dishes out enough poke above 2000 rpm. You can feel the shove as the turbo spools up and you just need to ride on that wave of torque. 

    Now, this engine does not like to be revved too much and when you do, the three cylinder thrum does come into the picture. Instead, one just needs to upshift early and let that torque do all the work. Midrange in the Sonet is brilliant and that makes driving it an effortless affair. You also get drive and traction modes which are reserved for the automatic variants only.

    Right Front Three Quarter

    Now coming to the iMT gearbox, this is basically a manual gearbox, minus the clutch pedal. So, you shift just like you do in a manual but there is no clutch to depress. Shift action is positive and the best way to use the iMT is to get off the gas while shifting, which makes the shift action a little smoother. And if you forget that you are driving a manual and end up being in the wrong gear, there is enough beeping to remind you to shift. Overall, the iMT technology is a revelation for those who want a manual but don’t want the pains associated with it. And according to Kia, this engine gearbox combo is fuel efficient as well, with an ARAI figure of 18.2 kmpl.

    Left Side View

    Now let’s talk about the ride and handling. The Sonet is aimed at the younger generation and for those who like to drive. 

    And to make it exciting to drive, the suspension is set-up slightly on the stiffer side. Even the smaller bumps can be felt and there is always an underlying stiffness around it. But even then, with 205mm of ground clearance and the 60 profile tyres you don’t really need to slow down for the bad sections and the Sonet will happily thunder through.

    Right Rear Three Quarter

    The steering feels good too and it has got enough weight to impose confidence at high speeds and at the same time it also makes it easy to chuck the Sonet into the gaps in the city. Overall, the Sonet might be a little stiffly sprung but it makes up for it with an entertaining drive.

    Should I buy one?

    Right Front Three Quarter

    The Sonet feels like an excellent product offering everything that a buyer could ask for in this segment and more. Apart from a multitude of features, you also have a long list of engine and gearbox options to choose from, which means there is a Sonet for everyone. We expect Kia to price the Sonet from 6.7 lakh onwards with the top end model breaching the 12 lakh barrier. And if so, this one seems to be another winner from Kia Motors.

    Where does it fit in?

    Front view

    The Sonet will go up against the likes of Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Mahindra XUV 3OO, the Tata Nexon, the upcoming Toyota Urban Cruiser and the Nissan Magnite.

    • A very capable all rounder,
      Minus servicing and spare parts cost its the best in the segment, aggressive looks, punchy acceleration, eye catching looks, capable driving mannerism on highways and to some extent on off road, surely a winner of the segment.

    • Fake feature rich Kia
      Who says, Kia offers more features than other cars??? If you look at Hyundai Venue SX diesel there is sun roof and cruise control. And in the same price Kia offers Sonet HTK plus with no sun roof and neither cruise control. It's not same price in fact HTK plus diesel is around 50 thousand more than Venue SX diesel, so please don't chant Kia is feature rick cars. Kia making fools and making money. If you pay 11.5L (around) you will get cars with sunroof like Nexon sx diesel s, XUV300 W6 diesel and Venue SX diesel.
