Compared with the India-spec car, the 7-seater Sonet is longer by 125 mm at 4,120 mm. The wheelbase is identical at 2,500 mm.
No changes have been made to creature comforts and Kia Sonet continues to be one of the feature-packed cars in its segment. An AC vent has been mounted on the roof for effective cooling of additional passengers.
In terms of engine options, Kia Sonet in Indonesia only comes in 1.5-litre petrol engine, generating 115PS and 114Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT gearbox.
The particular 7-seater avatar of Sonet may not be a likely entrant in the Indian market due to its 4-metre-plus length. Reportedly, Kia is readying a product similar to Hyundai Alcazar.
