After teasing the new variant of the Sonet multiple times, Kia has officially launched the X-Line model of the compact SUV in the Indian markets today with a price tag of Rs 13.39 lakh for the petrol DCT version and Rs 13.99 lakh for the diesel automatic model. The prices mentioned here are ex-showroom India. The X-Line model is based on the car's top-spec GTX+ variant and gets all of the premium features in addition to some special features to distinguish it from the regular variants.
The Kia Sonet X-Line follows the footsteps of the Seltos X-Line, which debuted a year ago. The exterior paint colour of the Sonet X-Line, like the Seltos X-Line, is Matte Graphite (Grey). The front grille of the car also has a knurled pattern in gloss black, and the front and rear skid plates feature a piano black finish with dark metal accents.
The gloss black theme has also been carried over to the fog lamp garnishes and the outside wing mirrors while the dark metal accents have also been added to the doors. Other major exterior changes include a new design for the 16-inch alloy wheels, which are finished in gloss black, and silver brake callipers, which are finished in red colour on standard GTX variants.
Talking about the interior, the Kia Sonet X-Line has a new dual-tone colour scheme and a new black headliner on the inside. A new orange contrast stitching and X Line logos have been added to the leatherette upholstery. As we have already mentioned, Sonet X-Line, like the Seltos X-Line, is based on the top-spec GTX+ trim and thus includes all of Sonet’s bells and whistles.
Coming to the technical specifications, the GTX+ trim level includes the 120 horsepower, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine and the 115 horsepower, 1.5-litre diesel engine. Both of these engines are available on the Sonet X-Line and the transmission options have also been carried over, with the petrol receiving a 7-speed DCT gearbox and the diesel receiving a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission. Here is the list of key features of the new Kia Sonet X-Line:
