New Sonet holds key to Kia’s growth in India

Sonet sub-compact SUV was the third model from the Korean carmaker in India. After debut with the Seltos, Kia had introduced the Carnival just months ahead of the Sonet. Packed with features, like most cars from Korean manufacturers, Sonet struck the right chord with Indian customers at a time when most of its rivals lacked in that aspect, as well as in choice of powertrain.

However, Sonet failed to emulate the success enjoyed by the likes of Maruti Brezza, the erstwhile leader of the segment, or Tata Nexon which is currently the best-selling SUV in the country. It is even lagging behind Hyundai Venue, on of its arch rivals, despite sharing a lot of similarities. Seltos and Sonet remain the volume drivers for Kia in India. For the carmaker to grow further and take on the top three carmakers, the success of Sonet is Kia’s aim now, more than ever.
