    good with under good price 

    I drive a great little SUV, the Kia Sonet. It is sleek and feature-rich. It costs roughly Rs 7 lakh, which is fair given its qualities. The automobile gets 18 km/l, terrific mileage. Multiple airbags, ABS, and a sturdy body improve safety. Space and comfort are combined in the well-designed cabin with a high-tech infotainment system. Traffic and parking are easy with the automobile. The limited back seat space should be improved. I love my Kia Sonet and would suggest it to anybody seeking for a sleek and feature-packed small SUV.

    Feature loaded compact SUV 

    Kia sonet is my second car that comes with the competitive pricing and it comes with many segment first features. The build quality of this compact SUV is also good and it look stylish and the cabin is very good with good spacing but the ride quality is not that good.

    A Stylish City Cruiser with Room for Improvement 

    This January, I decided to take my newly purchased Kia Sonet to meet my parents to Jaipur. The 1.5L diesel engine with 115 PS power and 250 Nm of torque made the highway ride incredibly smooth. But as much as I loved the modern look and feel, I hit a few bumps throughout the way. The rear seating, though adequate for short trips, felt little bit cramped for my taller friends and that cause some discomfort.

    superb drive quality 

    I was quite lucky to take a test drive of kia sonet model and it was such a mesmerizing experience that it convinced my mind to buy it. I got that from the same showroom at an affordable price. It is not at all expensive and worth the features. It comprises of modern technologies but at the same time makes it difficult for me to take controls over the touchscreen which is quite confusing. The interior is quite cozy and comfortable, roomier than it was.

    when style meets class 

    All i can say is that it has been built differently and the exterior design steals the attention on the road. The seat is very soft and comfortable. It has a very powerful motor that brings out the actual potential of this car. I have never faced jerks or vibrations while driving it. It has always been smooth throughout.

    Budget car under 10 lakh 

    I drive the Mahindra XUV 3OO, a great small SUV. It is sleek and feature-rich. It costs roughly Rs 8 lakh, which is fair given its qualities. The little SUV gets 17 km/l, which is decent. Multiple airbags, ABS, and a solid body structure improve safety. Space and comfort are combined in the well-designed cabin with a high-tech infotainment system. Traffic and parking are easy with the automobile. The limited back seat space should be improved. I love my Mahindra XUV 3OO and would suggest it to anybody searching for a sleek and feature-packed compact SUV.

    Mahindra XUV 3X0: A Feature Packed Compact SUV 

    I bought Mahindra XUV 3X0 three months ago on request of my wife.The cabin is spacious, with enough legroom and comfortable seating makes the long drive very enjoyable. The infotainment system, equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto kept us entertained throughout our every journey. But When compared to the Hyundai Venue, the interior quality of the XUV 3X0 feels a bit underwhelming. The Mahindra XUV 3X0 is a great choice if you seek a feature rich, comfortable compact SUV but be prepared to compromise on some practical aspects.

    Mahindra is a brand which 

    Mahindra is a brand which is known for its performance and reliability.Xuv 3xo interior is just like a branded costly car and performance is too good under this price segment.The seat space and boot space is soo good in this range that it can compete with creta and fronx car very easily.I loved this car as it looks soo good on road and also with good safety features.Car is comfortable and after sale service of mahindra is obviously good from the start.
