Thank you for this. Dashcam caught my attention here. Couldn't see this in the Kia online portal for accessories. Any input from them regarding the make of it, if it's dual channel and if hardwired?

The sales didn't know on that, even I asked, since it was just 10k, wanted to know if it was dual and then it would be good value since it will be fitting well, w ill update once I get the information.

The accessory kit costs you around 23K and its basically floor & trunk mats, chrome inserts, sill guard, door guards, mudflaps, headrests and some unwanted stuff like microfiber cloth and shampoo too. The choice is completely optional as I opted just for the dual floor mats (₹5561) and the mudflaps alone.
I have done the PDI, cleared the payment and expecting the delivery tomorrow or Saturday morning.

I booked on the 20th December with the K-Code and the vehicle arrived on 16th Jan at the dealership in Kerala and delivery scheduled tomorrow/day after.

No, this is an addition to our garage! It's the same color as well There are no other cars out there which are ticking the boxes under 20L bracket right now and my sister really dislikes Nexon leaving us with Sonet. Our garage will have 4 cars now with 3 compact SUVS now, 2 sonet's and a brezza.

Diesel version comparison & recommended models/trims. Seriously missing MT on Higher trims (GT Line). Diesel MT highest trim HTX+ is not recommended for the price jump from HTX to HTX+

Interesting to see 'Ventilated Seat Cushion' as an official accessory. I personally found the ventilated seats amazing; would be a great addition to lower trims

Just doubtful on this statement,even though ventilated seat cover is an accessory,the ventilation vents/connection should be there from the A/c console for its functionality right?

By the way, got mine delivered yesterday morning and pretty impressed by the initial feel and a bit apprehensive about the overwhelming technology support and the ownership cost over the years.KIA connect is free for 3 years alone and then charged around 3K for 1 year/5K for 2yrs/7k for 3 yes renewal as of now.

Ah, right! It's probably just a fan.

Yes, I have to renew in a couple of months. I think itís reasonable considering they need to maintain a network connection, and the servers. I personally love Kia Connect. Mainly, remote start and trip analytics. And one can choose to not renew if they donít find value in it.

Deliveries have already commenced in some states and folks here in Goa donít even have a TD vehicle yet.

Yesterday, I visited the showroom to have a look at the FL. Looks pretty butch (if I may say) from front. This is only the top of the line GT & X trims ; the lower trims however look more or less the same as outgoing model.

Interior feel too doesnít change much as there are very subtle changes unlike Seltos FL.

The HTK+ and the HTX trims have been decently kitted now albeit the omission of alloys in the HTX variant is really sad IMHO.

Congratulations to you & do share you initial ownership experience with us. Possibly, the 1st FL Sonet delivery I presume.

Re: 2024 Kia Sonet Facelift Review

Is Kia Motors taking a dig at VW (Vento?) in their latest advertisement?
Recently I came across Kia Sonet advertisement on Instagram and there is VW Vento 2010 model with a masked VW Emblem if Iím not wrong.

Re: 2024 Kia Sonet Facelift Review

Does anyone know if we can get Kia connect on HTX variant? The specs says Kia connect from HTX+ onwards, can be added on or not at all.

I presume the Kia Connect is integrated with the 10" AVN unit and cannot be had as is in the lower specced 8".

IMHO it isn't quite a deal breaker as I haven't seen folks using it much other than the initial period. Once the novelty factor dies, the connectivity issues, etc. seem to diminish the whole experience.

Somehow the HTX variant still feels the most VFM even in the facelift. The only sad omission being the alloy wheels! Idk why, but Kia had done this exact same thing during the initial launch of the Sonet in 2020 and later in 2021 they added the alloys in the HTX variant.

Having said that, I got to agree that the GTX+ looks the part (in flesh) in that beautiful white shade! I happened to see one on the road last night and man, I was blown! But the price difference between the HTX & GTX+ is also very steep. Not quite sure if it's justified.
