Kia Motors launched its first sub-4 meter SUV, Sonet on 18 September. However, at that time the company didn't disclose the prices of the top-line automatic variants of the car. But now Kia has finally revealed the prices for the GTX+ automatic trims for both the turbo-petrol and diesel powertrains. Both the trims are priced at Rs 12.89 lakh each (ex-showroom).
