As Sonet is a sub 4 meter compact SUV so it has small length but it covers almost all things that one luxurious car should have. Kia sonet is 3990 mm long, 1790 mm wide and it has height of 1642 mm. So it has got quite a good space.
Now let’s talk about outer design.
Front grill of Kia Sonet is black in colour with red elements in that grill. The grill gets chrome border at bottom. Below that grill we get number plate section and below that there is a bumper grill which is hexagonal shape grill which helps in air entry to radiator. Now this bumper grill gets grey silverish border as a with red straight line which is very fine and sophisticated design element.
Other than that sonet gets LED lights with LED drls as border of light. Now at bottom you can see uniquely square shaped fog lamps. Which are also LED.
Now just observe the front bonnet closely. bonnet has very sharp corners and side border of bonnet. And bonnet is quite uneven as it is embossed from center and flat on corners which is a element of aerodynamic design of sonet.
So this is all about Kia Sonet front.
Now 2 things which are very attractive and will definitely catch your attention are chrome plated door handles. And side skirtings at bottom of door with red straight line element which give sporty feel. Now other that you will observe the non-operating roof rails. Sonet also gets a slit design at end of the side of sonet which is a Japanese design element. And it was first observed by India in Ignis. It also get slightly squarish wheel arches. And it also gets 16 inch alloy wheels in higher variants and it will get 15 inch alloy wheel in base variant. The design of alloy is curve with sharp corner and it is diamond cut alloy wheels. And also get black cut type design in each curve. This something different from normal alloy wheels.
So this all you can observe in sonet’s side view.
When we look at the rear of the sonet it looks like that sonet has took inspiration from seltos for it’s rear look. The rear lights are divided into two parts by the boot door border. It contains 5 LED lights inside in series. Below which on right side it has turn indicators and on left side it has reverse lights. And a straight LED line joins both the rear lights passing throughout the door. And as you can see in photo that it has got rear defogger. But it is highest variant so we can expect that only top or second variant from top will have rear defoggers. Now at bottom it gets carbon black bumper with silver streamline border with red design line. Which joins 2 rhombus shape mufflers of exhaust pipe.
So this all about exterior of the Sonet.
Now lets get information about interior of the sonet.
First thing that we observe as a driver when we enter the car is the MID(multi information display). So sonet gets semi-digital MID. As it gives speed in digital manner and for RPM, heating gauge and fuel gauge are analog. Now sonet has quite different dashboard design as MID is directly connected to the floating entertainment system. This system support both Android auto and apple car play. Below that entertainment system you get all the control switches related to AC and rear defoggers and front defoggers. And you also get one extra switch slot for any aftermarket facility if you add any.
