On April 8, 2021, Kia Motors unveils an SUV three-row. In Indonesia, the model is scheduled for the first sale. Kia Sonet’s seven-seat SUV We’ve been telling you more.
- Sonet will be a product of three rows made in India
- Comes with a cabin of seven seats
- No news about India’s launch
2022 Kia KY MPV: What’s new about that?
The size of the three-row Sonet, according to sources, will be identical to that of the five-seat edition, and behind the second row, a third-row seat will be added that will be close to two adults. Although the vehicle has not yet been officially revealed, the packaging of Kia’s three-row configuration in the compact Sonet cabin remains to be seen.
This also indicates that the third row of the three-row Sonet is nearly unusable as boot space. The three-row seven-seat Sonet will be powered by a 1.5-liter petrol engine mated to either a six-speed manual or a CVT automatic transmission, identical to the five-seat Sonet sold in Indonesia.
This new MPV will share its platform with the Sonet, about 4.5 m long, and have sufficient space, similar to the Mahindra Marazzo, for every three rows. As mentioned above. It helps to place it directly on the Indian market between Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Toyota Innova Crysta.
The car seen in the spy shots gives some indication of what can be expected on the stylistic front. These headlamps are wrap-around with LED DRLs placed above, which are identical to those seen on the SONET. A large ‘Tiger nose’ grill, with a combination of chrome bits and other sharp style characteristics, is anticipated.
In addition, the models come with 16-inch wheels, which are identical to those of Seltos, and are supplied with MRF Wanderer tyres.

Our expectations are that the Kia KY MPV will come with features similar to Seltos, including a back camera, mobile connectivity, alloy wheel connections, DRLs, a push-button, cruise control, power windows, and ambient illumination over a wide range. In addition, the higher versions of the Kia KY MPV provide comfort and security features such as connected car tech, sun roofing, ventilated front seats, air purifier, a 360-degree camera, a blind spot screen, and head-up displays.

A 1.5-liter diesel driver will form the core of the Kia KY MPV range in India and 1.5-liter petrol will be also available. Expect the power outputs and transmission options of the Seltos on the KY MPV. In contrast, the Maruti Ertiga is now only an oil model, while Mahindra Marazzo is equipped with a single 1.5-liter diesel engine; it is anticipated that an AMT diesel engine and a petrol engine will be added in the future.
