    Kia Sonet Aurochs Edition design, features

    Updates to the Sonet Aurochs Edition are only cosmetic, like the Sonet Anniversary Edition that was introduced in October 2021. Like the previous edition, the Aurochs gets a beefier-looking front skid plate as well as tangerine accents on the front bumper, grille, door sills, rear skid plate and centre wheel caps. The grille also gets the Aurochs badging in tangerine. The SUV is available in four colours – Gravity Grey, Aurora Black Pearl, Sparkling Silver and Glacier White Pearl. 

    As it is based on the HTX trim, the features list of the Sonet Aurochs Edition remains unchanged. It gets an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, automatic LED headlamps, a single-pane sunroof, drive modes, automatic climate control with rear AC vents, cruise control and more. Safety features include four airbags, seat-belt reminders for all seats, three-point seatbelts for all seats, a tyre pressure monitoring system and more. 

    Compared to the HTX+ trims, it misses out on equipment like the 10.25-inch touchscreen, Bose sound system, connected car tech and an air purifier.
