If you are looking for a vehicle that offers a bit more versatility, comfort, and space than a conventional hatchback, the Kia Sonet might be the perfect choice. The Kia Sonet stands out amongst the many compact SUVs listed on and the good news is that on you can find a new, demo or even used Kia Sonet that suits your needs or budget.

The Kia Sonet is a B-SUV designed to turn heads, engineered to offer driving pleasure, built to world-leading quality standards and offered with convenience, comfort and safety.

Modern SUV styling

The Kia Sonet boasts a striking and confident design that is sure to delight any owner. The Sonet showcases a range of styling attributes that set it apart from its competitors, including a fresh take on Kia’s signature tiger-nose grille, with a stylish front skid plate underneath. The sporty silhouette is enhanced by the unique design and structure of its C-pillars, matched with a wraparound rear windscreen.

In addition the attractive 16-inch alloy wheels, protective trim on the side and wheel arches as well as the roof rails give it an authentic SUV appearance. 190mm of ride height ensures extra versatility when you do need to venture off the beaten track.

Quality interior

Stepping inside the cabin, reveals a high-quality interior given the price point of this compact SUV. The use of premium materials all-round not only adds to the aesthetics but also promises long-term durability. The sporty leather wrapped multi-function steering wheel, attractive artificial leather upholstery with red stitching, rear parking camera, climate control, cruise control, voice activation and the electronic driver display that offers three driving modes certainly add to the premium look and feel.

The eight-inch touch screen infotainment system is easy to use and facilitates simple and safe mirroring of smartphone functions via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

The cabin of the Sonet is impressively spacious too, especially given the compact exterior dimensions. The boot offers 392 litres of space, while the rear seats fold down for added versatility and extra loading space.

Under the bonnet

The Kia Sonet T-GDi is fitted with a 1,0-litre turbocharged engine that delivers remarkably lively performance of 88kW at 6 00rpm and 172Nm from 1 500rpm. Paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission the Sonet also provides an overall smooth and effortless driving experience. However the icing on the cake is the Sonet’s exceptional fuel efficiency, as it sips just 6,0 litres per 100 kilometres.

Safety is not neglected

Driving around with your family means that safety remains a key priority when buying a vehicle. Fortunately, the Kia Sonet is fitted with a variety of features to keep you and your loved one’s safe at all times. All models are fitted with ABS with EBD, Hill-start assist, dual front airbags and Isofix child-seat anchoring points. EX+ models add side and curtain airbags.
