The 2021 Kia Sonet with a new 'KIA' badge is not very different from its first model launched last September. I don't know if you'd also find it 'Wild by Design' but you have to give it to the carmaker for coming up with an off-beat styling. Also, the reason why the refreshed model only gets additional features and rejigged variants. Here's a picture gallery imparting all the specifications of the SUV.

As I earlier mentioned, the distinctive design is quirky, modern and now with the new 'KIA' logo under the 'transformation' continues to look fresh and up-to-date.

Several features from higher trims have been passed on to the lower trims, while the top-spec variants of the SUV now get as many as 10 new features as a part of the equipment.

This includes first-in-segment features like rear door sunshade curtains and voice commands through updated UVO Connect to even operate the electric sunroof.

Its lower variants also get safety features like Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Hill Assist Control (HAC), and Brake Assist (BA).

As far as engine and transmission options are concerned, there is no change in the 2021 Kia Sonet. It gets the same three engine choices with a wide variety of gearbox options as well.

Namely, there's the Smartstream petrol family with a 1.2-litre (83PS/115Nm) and 1.0-litre T-GDI (120PS/172Nm), and then the oil-burner 1.5-litre CRDi (WGT-100PS/240Nm and VGT 115PS/250Nm).

Its entry-level 1.2-litre petrol engine comes mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, while the 1.0-litre T-GDI petrol mill gets either the six-speed iMT or the seven-speed DCT option.

Automatics get paddle shifters as standard. And lest we forget, the 1.5-litre CRDi diesel unit can be had with a six-speed manual transmission (WGT) or a six-speed automatic (VGT).

In terms of variant-wise pricing, there is a slight change and the new Kia Sonet is available in the range of Rs 6.79 lakh to Rs 13.25 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
