Kia Released A New Teaser Of Upcoming Sonet SUV
Kia Motors released a new teaser video of the upcoming Sonet SUV ahead of its global unveil on August 7. This is the second time when the Korean maker has teased the car.
What Does The New Teaser Reveal?
The new video clip gives a sight of its front and rear profile. It gets the canines (Vampire's teeth) inspired LED DRLs at the front which justifies its 'wild by design' tagline. Apart from this, the teaser also reveals the rear LED taillights, roof rails, rear wiper & a sharkfin antenna.
All the elements are quite similar to its concept model showcased at the 2020 auto expo. However, instead of a light bar seen on the Sonet concept, the tail-lights in teaser looks connected by a reflector strip.
