The Kia Sonet completes one year of sales in India and to commemorate the same, the automaker has launched the Sonet First Anniversary Edition. The limited edition model is inspired by Aurochs, a large wild Eurasian bull, says Kia. The model gets new front and rear skid plates with tangerine accents that are inspired by the Aurochs. The tangerine accents extend to the grille and centre wheel caps, while the model gets new side skid plates, door garnish, and the anniversary edition emblem.
Speaking on the launch, Tae-Jin Park, Managing Director and CEO, Kia India said, “The Sonet has been one of our breakthrough products that have contributed to Kia’s success in India. With sales of more than one lakh units in less than a year, the Sonet has already established itself as one of India’s highest-selling compact SUVs. To celebrate this adoration, we are excited to launch the anniversary edition of the Sonet. Carved out of sheer design excellence, the Anniversary edition Sonet is based on the concept of Aurochs and boasts a muscular look offering a bolder and premium driving experience to our young-at-heart customers.”
The Kia Sonet First anniversary edition is available in four configurations. This includes the 1.0-litre T-GDi petrol with the 6-speed iMT and 7-speed DCT, as well as the 1.5-litre diesel with the 6-speed manual and automatic gearbox choices. There are no mechanical changes and the car continues to come with the specifications, while the feature list remains the same as well. Kia has not confirmed how many units of the limited edition will be actually produced. The Sonet Anniversary edition will be available in four colours – Aurora Black pearl, Glacier white pearl, Steel silver and Gravity grey.
