Landscapes are set to undergo a transformation with the arrival of the highly anticipated Kia Sonet, which aims to conquer the entry SUV segment with its stylish design, advanced features, and compelling value proposition.

Designed to impress, the Kia Sonet boasts a robust and modern exterior that commands attention on the road. Its bold dimensions, signature Tiger-nose grille, and class-leading 205mm ground clearance provide a strong SUV presence. Higher-end variants feature premium elements such as LED lighting, an electric sunroof, and sleek two-tone alloy wheels.

Inside, the Sonet’s cabin strikes a balance between comfort and practicality. Top-of-the-line trims offer luxurious leather seats, while all variants come equipped with spacious seating for five passengers. Convenience features like driver’s seat pockets, 60:40 split-folding rear seats, and multiple USB ports, including USB-C, cater to the needs of modern drivers.

The Sonet’s technological prowess is equally impressive, with a range of advanced features. Depending on the variant, customers can enjoy a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless smartphone integration, and a suite of Kia Drive Wise safety technologies, including Lane Following Assist, Forward Collision Avoidance, and High Beam Assist.

Under the hood, the Kia Sonet is powered by a 1.5-liter Dual Port Fuel Injected gasoline engine, delivering a class-leading 115 PS and 144 Nm of torque. This efficient powertrain, paired with either the Intelligent Variable Transmission or a 6-speed manual, provides a dynamic and responsive driving experience.

“The Kia Sonet is a true game-changer in the small SUV category,” said Jaime Alfonso Zobel de Ayala, CEO of ACMobility. “With its stylistic appeal, feature-rich packaging, and compelling pricing, we are confident that the Sonet will become a cornerstone of our product lineup and a leading choice for discerning Filipino car buyers.”

Ranging from PHP 758,000 to PHP 1,138,000, the Kia Sonet is poised to offer an unbeatable balance of style, technology, and value in the entry SUV segment. The arrival of this modern and capable SUV marks a significant milestone for Kia Philippines, reinforcing the brand’s commitment to providing movement that inspires.
