Begin your SUV life with the all-new Kia Sonet

The all-new Kia Sonet

Kia Motors Zimbabwe, the only certified Kia dealership in the country is thrilled to introduce the Kia Sonet onto Zimbabwean roads, especially with the growing B-SUV trend.

Following extensive market input, especially relating to its design, engine, and transmission tuning, and characteristics, and suspension attributes, the Sonet was designed to offer customers a car that ticks all the boxes while offering a selection of features that add value to the ownership experience.

With its sporty, eye-catching design, funny-to-drive dynamics, and high-quality features Kia is renowned for, the Sonet is the obvious choice for those who value design, comfort, and quality combined.

The all-new Kia Sonet incorporates Kia’s DNA of emotive styling along with a premium and youthful appeal to create a strong presence on local roads. The Sonet showcases a range of styling attributes that set it apart from its competitors, including a fresh interpretation of Kia’s signature “tinger-nose grill” with a stylish front skid-plate underneath. Its sporty silhouette is enhanced by the unique design and structure of its C-pillars, matched with a wrap-around rear windscreen.

The profile, meanwhile, has a strong sporty character, thanks to the shape of the bonnet and bumpers, with the strongly-raked A-pillars and rounded roofline imparting greater road presence.

Contributing to the Sonet’s unmistakable SUV stance is its size. At 4,120 mm long, sitting on a wheelbase measuring 2,500 mm, it’s one of the largest and most spacious vehicles in the B-SUV segment, ensuring that there is more than enough space for all passengers and everything that’s needed on the journey.

Inside, the Sonet offers a sophisticated cabin with a smooth, flowing dashboard to appeal to young-at-heart and always-connected consumers. Keeping the comfort of the driver and passengers in mind, intelligent packaging has liberated plenty of legroom, headroom and shoulder room, and created a large luggage area measuring 392 litres. Taking centre stage on the dashboard is an 8-inch HD touchscreen infotainment system that incorporates a reverse camera with dynamic guidelines, a standard fitment throughout the range. The setup offers Kia’s intuitive and friendly voice-control technology and sports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, providing customers with the crucial safety advantage of hands-free connectivity.

The Sonet’s fuel-efficient 1.5 MPI petrol engine boasts outputs of 85 kW at 6,300 r/min and 144 Nm of torque at 4,500 r/min. Customers have a choice between a 6-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Feature highlights on the entry-level include 8-inch infotainment with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android, Auto Remote central locking, air-conditioning, Bluetooth, front and rear electric windows, electric mirrors, 6 speakers, 15-inch steel wheels, height-adjustable driver’s seat, automatic headlamp activation, and a rear-view camera.

In addition to its affordable prices, Kia Motors Zimbabwe offers an excellent after-sales package for the Sonet which includes an Unprecedented 5 Year, Unlimited Kilometre Mileage Manufacturer’s Warranty.
