    Kia Sonet X-Line: exterior updates

    The biggest talking point of the new Sonet X Line is its matte grey paint that goes well with the contrasting gloss black accents all around. For instance, the grille, fog lamp surrounds and wing mirror caps are finished in the new gloss black shade. Meanwhile, the front and rear faux skid plates get a piano black finish with silver metal accents.

    In profile, the Sonet X Line gets a new design for the 16-inch alloy wheels finished in a dual-tone shade of gloss black and silver, and a new silver accent running the length of the doors. It must be noted that the chrome trim along the window line and the chrome door handles contrast well with the matte grey shade. The brake calipers – otherwise finished in red on the standard GT Line trims – are finished in silver here on the X Line. At the rear, there’s a new X Line badge on the tail gate.

    Kia Sonet X-Line: interior updates

    On the inside, the Sonet X Line gets a new dual-tone colour for the seat upholstery and the door pads that Kia calls ‘Splendid Sage’, which is a combination of grey and beige, while the dashboard continues with an all-black look. This is contrasted with orange stitching on the steering wheel, seats and door pads. Additionally, the Sonet X Line also gets a new black headliner.

    There are, however, no changes to the equipment list, but being based on the top-spec GTX+ trim, the Sonet X Line continues with features like a sunroof, ventilated seats, a 10.25-inch touchscreen, UVO connected-car tech, LED headlamps, drive modes, front parking sensors, six airbags, ESC, traction control and more.

    Kia Sonet X-line: engine options

    Under the hood, the Sonet X Line gets two engine options: the 120hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine and the 115hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine. The Sonet X-Line is only available with automatic gearbox options, which means that the petrol variant is offered with the 7-speed DCT gearbox while the diesel gets the 6-speed torque converter.

    The Kia Sonet rivals the likes of the Hyundai VenueMaruti Suzuki BrezzaToyota Urban CruiserMahindra XUV300Nissan MagniteRenault Kiger and the Tata Nexon.
