Begin your SUV life with the all new Kia Sonet


Begin your SUV life with 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 segment trends.

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, fun-to-drive dynamics and the 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 sets it apart from its competitors, including a fresh interpretation of Kia’s signature ‘tiger-nose grille’, 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 leg room, head room 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 an 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.
