It’s now complete with a major mid-life facelift to up the game against newly updated rivals.

    For the 2024 update, the Kia Sonet has received a slew of cosmetic changes with a revised fascia. It rides on alloy wheels with a new pattern and the rear section has also been revised with connected taillamps. The car also gets several feature additions with the latest safety and convenient tech, the Level 1 ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems).

    Positive:

    For a three-cylinder unit, this engine is very refined and pretty lively. At city speeds, all you need is part throttle to get ahead of traffic, and for times when you need to up the pace, the engine delivers enough poke post 2,500rpm. Even the ride quality is not jarring at all and, in fact, good for the most part.

    USPs of the Sonet

    • The Kia Sonet features a contemporary and stylish design. It’s got unique proportions, having a nice blend of curves and muscle. It stands out in terms of aesthetics and is visually appealing.
    • The feature-packed interior has been the biggest plus of the Sonet since its introduction. The range-topping X-Line variant offers features that aren’t available in some of the cars that are a segment above it.
    • With the most diverse engine options in India, Kia can cater to different customer preferences with the Sonet.
    • In terms of safety, Kia has equipped the Sonet with six airbags, ABS with EBD, stability control, hill-start assist, ISOFIX, TPMS, seatbelts for all passengers, and ADAS.
    • Despite its compact size, the Sonet offers a very spacious cabin. It is easy to drive and offers a frugal powertrain option as well.

    Negatives:

    With its firm suspension setup, the ride quality of the Kia Sonet could be improved. This setup results in a comparatively less comfortable ride, particularly for passengers in the rear seats.

    Kia Sonet Safety

    3.8Expert Rating
    • Even from the entry-level variant, the Kia Sonet offers many safety hardware as standard across the range. This includes ABS with EBD, brake assist along with ESC, hill assist, traction control, six airbags, ISOFIX child anchor, speed sensing door lock, rear parking sensors, and TPMS.
    • Do note that this car has not been crash-tested yet, so we do not have the crash test scores.

    4.7User Rating (68)
    • Like the Seltos, which is its elder sibling, the Sonet also gets an integrated infotainment system, while the quality of material used all around the cabin is good.
    • We like the not-so-meaty flat-bottom steering in the GT line behind which now sits a fully digital screen.
    • The touchscreen is as smooth and intuitive as ever, and the infotainment system is bundled with plenty of feel-good features.
    • With its scooped roof, there’s an ample amount of headroom, while the legroom is just about adequate.
    • Not only is the Sonet’s cabin a nice place to be in, but it is also one of the most feature-loaded in the segment.

    Negatives:

    • The rear seats have good back support on offer, but the seat base could have done with some extra under-thigh support to make it feel more comfortable.
    • You can’t comfortably accommodate three passengers in the second row, owing to the tight shoulder room.

    • very bad experience
      Bad experience till now. In my city, I take the first delivery of SONET. Features are loaded more but not useful. Overheat is the main issue for me, also no steady driving comfort. If you go for this please go and take a test drive and study well for this car.

    • Very bad for me.
      Expect more but nothing given for me. very poorly performed vehicle. I used Etios for a long time around 125000 something kilometers. That was an experience but this was a tragedy. First time in my driving life I was stuck in traffic with this KIA Sonet. Overheating damages the inner wiring. I am preparing to sale this one. I want to go for other companies. Kia made me sad. This was my experience.

    • Kia Sonet HTK Plus
      In 2 years of driving over 25000 km, I have had several bad experiences when the vehicle has stalled suddenly for no reason. It would not start for around 20 minutes and it has happened 6 Times. I have been stuck in traffic and have had a terrible time. Have reported the matter and even taken the car to the service station, but they have said that it is in good condition and have still not been able to find the reason for this regular stalling of the vehicle. I need to have the car replaced and this complaint is to proclaim that if there is an accident because of this defect the company will have to bear the cost and be responsible.
