Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

Hyundai Venue

  • Attractive pricing (introductory)
  • Youthful exterior design
  • Easy ingress/egress
  • Spot-on ergonomics
  • First-in-segment e-SIM tech
  • Peppy and smooth 3-cylinder petrol
  • Comfort-oriented suspension setup

Kia Sonet

  • Like the concept
  • the production spec Sonet looks curvy and powerful. Lots of variants to choose from and even a diesel auto is on the cards. Like the Seltos the interiors don't disappoint either. Long features list includes ventilated seats

Hyundai Venue

  • Does not have brawny SUV-ish design characteristics
  • Lighter interior colours not available as standard
  • Strictly a 4-seater
  • Weird variant lineup (SX+ DCT does not get rear wiper!)
  • Brake pedal feel could be better

Kia Sonet

  • The waiting period most definitly is going to be painfully long

Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which is better, Sonet or Venue - Creta?
  • Kia Sonet shares its powertrain with the Hyundai Venue and gets same engine options. However, if you want a more beefy looking sub-4 meter SUV and a distinguished feature rich cabin, then the Kia Sonet would be a better pick. Sonet takes an edge over the Venue with its integrated central display, driver-centric cabin, a segment-leading 10.25-inch touchscreen display, a semi-digital instrument cluster that features a 4.2-inch full LCD display. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of comfort and compatibility. You may click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - Kia Sonet: Same Price, Other SUV Options - Hyundai Venue iMT: First Drive Review- Hyundai Venue vs Kia Sonet
Q. Hyundai Venue , KIA Sonet or Toyota Urban Cruiser- Which automatic petrol variant is good for chennai city traffic?
  • As per your requirements, you may go for Toyota Urban Cruiser. It prefers to be within the confines of the city rather than be out exploring. The 4-speed automatic is old enough to be finishing school, but it isn’t as undesirable as you’d think. For city usage, you’d have no complaints with the gearbox. It’s smooth, going up and down the gears without letting you know. It will stick to second gear for the most part of the commute, and that’s bound to take a toll on the efficiency. To counter this, Maruti Suzuki has called upon the SHVS mild-hybrid tech. It helps save some fuel when you’re stuck in jams or at a red light by automatically turning the car off. You don’t necessarily have to shift to neutral for the car to switch off, it does so when the car is stationary in Drive (D) too. Release the brake, or shift back to D and the motor starts up instantly. Do take a test drive in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
Q. Which one would be a good option Sonet, Venue or XUV300?
  • The Sonet is ticking all the right boxes otherwise. It’s delivering on the wow factor with pukka mini-SUV looks, quality interiors and a feature list that’d make you question paying a premium for larger SUVs. It’s being sensible and practical too, with loads of cubby holes and a large boot. You get proper automatics, and the engines on offer cover a wide range of usage. If we talk about the Venue, it shares a lot with Sonet and somehow both are similar. Sonet offers a better drive quality and handling. On the other hand Venue offers a more comfort for passengers and it has the advantage of the wide service network of Hyundai. If we talk about Hyundai XUV300, it is fun to drive and have well built too. If you often drive on highways with rear seat comfort is not your priority, you may go for Mahindra XUV300. Also it offers best in segment safety too. You may compare all these cars accordingly. Do take a test drive in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
