The SUV segment under 4 meters is very popular and is constantly growing in the country. Almost all car manufacturers in India have a product in this segment. The Kia Sonet is one of the popular SUVs in this segment and was launched on the market last year. The SUV competes with cars like Hyundai Venue, Maruti Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 in the segment. It became popular for its looks and features. Various aftermarket accessories are now available on the market and here we have one of these Kia Sonet which is installed with 360 degree camera.
The video was uploaded by CAR SONICS CAR ACCESSORIES HYDERABAD on their YouTube channel and the changes seen here are done by them alone. The vlogger starts by showing the car when it arrived at the garage. Several modifications are being made to the car. All ports are muted and the original speakers have been replaced by Pioneer speakers. Two-layer dampening was done in the car to improve NVH levels and sound quality.
To improve the sound quality, an amplifier and a sub-woofer were also installed in the car. The car gets two-tone artificial leather seat covers and, on the outside, a set of rain visors, chrome lower window trim and door trim have been fitted to this car. They also laminate the floors and rugs are also installed.
One of the main highlights of this Kia Sonet was the addition of a 360 degree camera. They installed a camera on the grid, two under the ORVMs and one on the back. To make this setup work, they didn’t replace the touchscreen installed on the stock exchange. they modified the screen in such a way that it now shows the 360 degree camera feed as well.
The sound quality of Kia Sonet has improved and the same can be heard in the video. This is the 2021 Kia Sonet that was introduced to the market recently. The Kia Sonet as mentioned above is a very popular SUV in the segment. It is known for its premium features, but these features are generally not available in lower variants. That’s one of the reasons people look for accessories and modifications in the aftermarket.
One thing to keep in mind is that if any of the wires are cut while installing or modifying the vehicle, it could affect the warranty. So it is always recommended to go for plug and play settings. Kia Sonet is available in three engine options. There are two gasoline engine options and one diesel engine. The 1.2 liter naturally aspirated petrol engine is only available with manual gearbox.
The 1.5 liter diesel engine gets a manual and automatic transmission option. Sonet’s most powerful engine is the 1.0 liter, three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine, which generates 120P and 172 Nm of maximum torque. It is available with DCT and iMT gearbox options. The same engine and transmission are also seen on the Hyundai i20 and the Venue.
