The Kia Sonet’s mid-cycle update will have extensive improvements from top to bottom. New headlights with DRLs reaching toward the lower half of the redesigned bumper will be added, along with a fully new front profile and grille design.
Although it will get a new set of alloy wheels with a diamond cut finish, the side profile will mostly remain unchanged. The test vehicle’s red brake callipers, which are also available in the current GT models, can be seen. This prototype appears to have 16-inch alloy wheels.
The facelift’s rear profile will have freshly created tail lamps with LED components. Comparing the tail light cluster to the currently available model, it appears to be much larger in size. Also, you can see the brand-new dual-tone bumper design. Kia might also give some fresh hues.
Intense alterations will also be made to the interior. A new dashboard design with an upgraded dual screen display for the touchscreen infotainment system and the digital instrument cluster is what we can anticipate. A big 10.25-inch touchscreen is already included. New UI and greater resolution are most likely to be added.
Bose audio system, heated seats, wireless charging, sunroof, and more goodies are already included with the Sonet. The next upgrade might include the dashcam that we previously saw on the Exter as well as a 360-degree camera.
We don’t anticipate any major mechanical changes for the small SUV. The 1.5-liter diesel engine option, 1.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine, and 1.2-liter normally aspirated gasoline engine are anticipated to remain the same.
Anticipate a slight price increase over the currently available variant. Possible launch window: early 2024.
