2024 Kia Sonet Variants & Engines Explained

The 2024 Kia Sonet facelift has just been shown in India, and bookings will begin on December 20. Except for the pricing, Kia has announced all of the specifics, including an updated list of variant-specific engine and gearbox options. Let’s go over all of the powertrain combinations that will be available.

VariantHTEHTKHTK+HTXHTX+GTX+X-Line
1.2-litre Petrol 5MT
1-litre Turbo-petrol 6iMT
1-litre Turbo-petrol 7DCT
1.5-litre Diesel 6MT
1.5-litre Diesel 6iMT
1.5-litre Diesel 6AT

As seen in the table, Kia does not provide all models with all transmission options. The most powertrains are available in the higher-spec HTX version. Meanwhile, the diesel-manual combination is available in the most configurations.

The Kia Sonet is still available with three engine options and the updated SUV can be had with as many as five transmission options. Here’s a look:

  • 1.2-litre Petrol (83 PS/115 Nm): 5-speed MT
  • 1-litre Turbo-petrol (120 PS/172 Nm): 6-speed iMT, 7-speed DCT
  • 1.5-litre Diesel (116 PS/250 Nm): 6-speed MT (new), 6-speed iMT, 6-speed AT

The diesel-manual combo makes a return after it was axed in early 2023 across Kia’s entire product lineup.

2024 Sonet Facelift Features

The 2024 Sonet has a 10.25-inch touchscreen (for both the instrument cluster and the infotainment system), a 4-way motorized driver seat, 70+ connected car tech features, ventilated front seats, a sunroof, and a built-in air purifier.

Its safety net includes ten advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), six standard airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), a 360-degree camera, and front and rear parking sensors.

2024 Kia Sonet Facelift Price

The Kia Sonet facelift is expected to be released in early 2024. It might be priced as low as Rs 8 lakh (ex-showroom). The upgraded sub-4m SUV will compete against the Hyundai Venue, Maruti Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, Nissan Magnite, and Renault Kiger, as well as the Maruti Fronx crossover SUV.
