Kia Sonet Crosses 4 Lakh Sales Milestone In Just 44 Months

Sonet, Kia’s smallest offering in the country, was launched in September 2020, and, in just 44 months of sales, the sub-4m SUV has crossed the 4 lakh sales milestone in both domestic and overseas markets. Of these, 317,754 units of the Sonet were sold domestically, while an additional 85,814 units were dispatched to overseas markets. On average, the carmaker sold more than 9,000 units of the Sonet every month.

The high popularity of the Kia Sonet in the Indian market can be attributed to its sporty design, well-loaded cabin, and wide powertrain options.
