The Sonet X Line will be the next launch for Kia. The X Line version of Sonet will get the same upgrades that Seltos X Line gets.
Kia India has officially released the first Sonet X Line teaser ahead of its launch. The manufacturer already sells an X Line variant of the Seltos, a mid-size SUV, and the Sonet, a compact SUV. Kia India first introduced the Sonet in September 2020, so the Sonet X Line could debut next month, on the model’s second anniversary.
As seen in the teaser, the Sonet X Line is painted in ‘Xclusive Matte Graphite,’ the same colour scheme as Kia’s Seltos X Line. X Line badging, blacked-out elements, tangerine accents, and a larger set of alloy wheels will be included. There aren’t many cars in India that come with a matte paint job from the factory.
The interior can now be finished in a shade of blue called ‘Indigo Pera’ by Kia, making it look more premium than the standard Sonet. The Seltos X Line also uses the same colour. The Sonet X Line will be based on the Sonet’s top-end variant, so it will have all the bells and whistles.
Once launched, the Sonet X Line will be the new top-of-the-line variant of Sonet. The current prices of Sonet start at ₹7.49 lakhs (ex-showroom) and go up to ₹13.79 lakhs (ex-showroom).
Currently, Kia is also offering an Anniversary Edition of the Sonet. It gets cosmetic upgrades such as Tangerine accents on the grille, front skid plates, wheel caps, side door garnish and the rear skid plate.
The Sonet is offered with three engine options. There is a 1.2-litre, naturally aspirated engine, 1.5-litre diesel engine and a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Kia Sonet competes against Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger and Toyota Urban Cruiser.
