Three new Sonet models have been formally introduced by Kia India, with prices starting at Rs. 9.60 lakh (ex-showroom). The carmaker has now verified a new HTK turbo-petrol version in addition to the new GTX option for the sub-four-meter SUV, as they had previously reported.

This version of the Seltos, which begins with the GTX model, comes equipped with an auto up/down safety window function, paddle shifters, leatherette seats, drive and traction control settings, and ventilated front seats.
