The forthcoming mid-life facelift for the Kia Sonet is scheduled to be revealed on December 14, 2023. Prior to its official debut, information from the updated subcompact SUV’s brochure has surfaced online, providing insights into the vehicle’s variants, specifications, and features. As indicated in the leaked brochure, the Sonet will persist with its existing lineup of seven variants, namely HTE, HTK, HTK+, HTX, HTX+, GTX+, and X-Line.

Based on the official teaser videos, the Kia Sonet facelift appears to feature enhanced visual elements. Notable updates encompass a rejuvenated grille, a redesigned headlamp cluster incorporating LED lighting, and a revised rear section. The latter now boasts connected LED taillamps akin to those seen on the Seltos model.

Moreover, the Sonet is set to be available in an extensive palette of 11 color choices. This selection encompasses the recently introduced Pewter Olive shade, initially featured in the Seltos facelift. The leaked brochure further discloses that, contingent upon the variant, the Sonet will offer three fresh 16-inch alloy wheel designs as part of its customizable features.

In regard to its features, the upcoming Sonet model will boast a 4-way powered driver seat, touchscreen infotainment system starting from the HTK variant, and will incorporate wireless connectivity for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Additionally, the vehicle will be equipped with a rear parking camera. Notably, the Sonet will now include Level 1 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), encompassing features such as Forward Collision Warning and Avoidance Assist, along with a Lane Keep Assist function.

As in the previous model, the Sonet will maintain its availability in three primary trims: Tech Line, GT Line, and X-Line. These variants will feature the same engine options, namely the 1.2-litre petrol, a 1.0-litre Turbo Petrol, and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. The mechanical specifications of all three engines will remain consistent, providing identical performance outputs.

The 1.2-litre petrol variant will be equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission as standard. Meanwhile, the 1.0-litre GDI will offer a choice between a 6-speed iMT and a 7-speed DCT automatic transmission. The 1.5-litre diesel unit will be available with a 6-speed iMT and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Additionally, Kia has reintroduced the 6-speed manual option for the diesel model, a feature that had been discontinued in previous iterations.
