Drive safe and confident with DriveWise

Equipped with the Kia DriveWise suite of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, the Sonet ensures that you stay safe and stress-free on the road. Features such as Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Lane Following Assist (LFA), and Forward Collision Avoidance Assist (FCA), work together to keep you centered in your lane, maintain a safe distance from other vehicles, and avoid potential collisions. These advanced features, exclusive to the 1.5 SX AT variant, provide an extra layer of security and confidence, making your daily adventures more enjoyable.

Stay alert with driver attention warning

Taking long drives to La Union or Batangas can take a toll on the driver’s energy and alertness. The Kia Sonet’s Driver Attention Warning system is a driver’s best friend as it monitors your driving patterns and provides alerts if it detects signs of fatigue. This intelligent feature ensures drivers can stay attentive and responsive, reducing the risk of accidents and making their journey safer.

And if you’re stuck in stop-and-go traffic, the Kia Sonet’s Leading Vehicle Departure Alert lets you know if the car in front has moved forward through an audible sound and notification on the 10.25-inch LCD digital cluster. This is an asset in the urban setting.

With the Kia Sonet, Filipinos can now drive with peace of mind knowing that their vehicle is looking out for them too.

Enjoy seamless connectivity with 10.25” infotainment

Stay connected and entertained with the Sonet’s impressive dual 10.25-inch infotainment system and digital cluster. The full touchscreen display, and the 8-inch infotainment system found in the Sonet LX and EX, offers seamless integration with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to access your favorite apps, music, and navigation tools effortlessly without having to distract you from driving.

Additionally, the wireless phone charging feature ensures your devices remain powered up without the clutter of cables. This technology, coupled with modern design, keeps you connected and focused on the road, turning every drive into a delightful experience.

Relax in comfort, convenience

Everybody, no matter their shape or form, can feel cramped if stuck in long traffic jams. So seat comfort should be a factor in deciding your next vehicle purchase. The Kia Sonet’s interior is designed for ultimate comfort, featuring two-tone leather seats in the 1.5 SX AT variant and spacious seating for up to five passengers.

The McPherson Strut front suspension and Coupled Torsion Beam Axle rear suspension provide a smooth and stable ride, while the automatic air conditioning system maintains a pleasant temperature throughout the cabin, especially with the moody Philippine weather nowadays. These ensure a serene driving environment, helping you stay relaxed even during the most congested and stressful commutes.
