Introducing the Sonet

THE ALL-NEW SONET FROM R 296 995

A compact and modern compact Crossover SUV perfect for your day-to-day wherever you go. Don’t let the entry-level positioning fool you, though. The Kia Sonet models do not compromise on quality or essential comfort and safety features and are offered with Kia’s advanced, punchy and frugal 1.5 MPI naturally aspirated petrol engine delivering 85 kW at 6,300 r/min and 144 Nm of torque at 4,500 r/min. A choice between a 6-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Now available New Kia Sonet Turbo. We have added two newcomers, namely the 1.0 T-GDI EX and the more extensively appointed T-GDI  EX+, both powered by a new 1.0l turbo petrol engine and paired with an automatic seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT).

This three-cylinder engine has added voema with outputs of 88kW and 172Nm, a small power hike but a substantial leap in torque compared to the 85kW and 144Nm of the 1,500cc motor.

Prices include a five-year/unlimited distance warranty inclusive of roadside assistance, and a four-year/60,000km service plan.
