Update - 19/04/2020 - The new prices of the Kia Sonet range from Rs 6.79 lakh and the top model fetches Rs 13.20 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. The carmaker has also discontinued the HTK Plus 1.0L DCT and HTK Plus 1.5L Diesel AT.
Kia Motors India has steamrolled its competition and people already had the trust in KIA. Being a sister brand of Hyundai, buyers didn't have a second thought for the purchase - at least for the ownership experience and service costs. We earlier explained the service costs of Kia Seltos and Kia Carnival and now its time for the Sonet. Kia offers the Sonet with four engine options - 1.5-litre diesel WGT, 1.5-litre diesel VGT, 1.0-litre turbo petrol and 1.2-litre petrol engine. We explain to you the service cost of all the engines offered with the Kia Sonet.
Kia Sonet comes with two petrol engine options - 1.2-litre NA petrol and 1.0-litre turbo petrol. While the 1.2-litre is only available with a 5-speed manual in lower trims only, the 1.0-litre turbo petrol is offered in top trims with either a 6-speed iMT or 7-speed DCT. The 1.2-litre petrol engine produces 83PS and 113 Nm of torque whereas the 1.0-litre turbo produces 120PS and 172 Nm of torque. Talking about the service costs, you can refer to the table below:
|Service Interval||Kia Sonet 1.2||Kia Sonet 1.0|
|1st and 2nd Service||NIL||NIL|
|3rd Service (10,000 km or 1 year)||Rs 2,485||Rs 3,150|
|4th Service (20,000 km or 2 years)||Rs 4,840||Rs 5,505|
|5th Service (30,000 km or 3 years)||Rs 4,820||Rs 5,485|
|6th Service (40,000 km or 4 years)||Rs 5,705||Rs 6,554|
|7th Service (50,000 km or 5 years)||Rs 4,995||Rs 5,670|
The service costs mentioned are indicative and expect to change with additional wear and tear. The above service costs also include the cost of wheel alignment and balancing which will be done at Kia's official service dealership. As Kia uses an iMT in place of the normal 6-speed manual transmission, it needs the iMT fluid at regular intervals but it would just cost Rs 56 per top-up.
Kia Sonet is offered with the most fuel-efficient diesel engine in its class. The powerhouse is a 1.5-litre diesel engine which is sold in two tunes - 100PS (WGT) and 115PS (VGT). The 1.5 VGT produces 115PS and 250 Nm of torque, mated with the 6-speed automatic only. The 1.5 WGT produces 100PS and 240 Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission only. The 1.5 6AT is the same powertrain we also see in the Creta, Seltos, Verna and Elantra. You can see the service costs of Kia Sonet Diesel in the table below:
|Service Interval||Kia Sonet Diesel|
|1st and 2nd Service||NIL|
|3rd Service (10,000 km or 1 year)||Rs 3,674|
|4th Service (20,000 km or 2 years)||Rs 5,698|
|5th Service (30,000 km or 3 years)||Rs 5,690|
|6th Service (40,000 km or 4 years)||Rs 6,898|
|7th Service (50,000 km or 5 years)||Rs 5,864|
The service costs mentioned above are again indicative and expect to change with any additional wear and tear. The wheel alignment costs are included in the cost chart which is scheduled to happen every 10,000 km. The service cost of the Sonet is very affordable and the diesel engine is not expensive to maintain either. The basic servicing includes air filter and engine oil replacement whereas the brake and clutch fluid and fuel filter are changed every 30,000 km and 40,000 km respectively.
