5 Ways the Kia Sonet Will Help Alleviate Your Traffic | Motourismo

If it wasn’t more obvious, driving in the country nowadays can be  taxing. Roads can get clogged during rush hour, payday weekends, and certain holidays. With  Kia Philippines having launched its Kia Sonet this June, expect happier days on the road from  now on.  

Primarily designed to cater to the needs of young millennials and Gen Z, the Kia Sonet’s  striking design and best-in-class features make driving through traffic a breeze. For first-time  car buyers or those looking for a reliable upgrade, here are five reasons why the Kia Sonet is  tailored to reduce Filipinos’ travel stress and enhance their driving experience.  

1. 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.  

2. 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.  

3. 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.  

4. Relax in Comfort and 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.  

5. Drive Efficiently with Powerful Performance  

The Kia Sonet's four-cylinder 1.5-liter engine is powerful, smooth, and efficient, delivering 115  ps at 6,300 rpm and 144 Nm torque at 4,500 rpm. This powerful performance is  complemented by excellent fuel efficiency, making the Sonet a practical choice for daily  driving. With either the Kia Intelligent Variable Transmission or a 6-speed Manual  Transmission, the new powertrain also makes the Sonet ideal for the adventurous young  millennial. It ensures smooth gear shifts and optimal power delivery, providing a responsive  and enjoyable driving experience.  

With its innovative features and stylish design, the Sonet is your ultimate companion for daily  drives and the perfect solution to traffic stress. From best-in-class features to state-of-the-art  infotainment, unparalleled comfort, and efficient performance, the Kia Sonet is designed to  meet the needs of all Filipinos, especially the younger generations looking at their very first car  purchase. It’s exciting and reliable, best for both out-of-town adventures and city drives.
