Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which car better among Kia Sonet, Honda Jaaz, Hyundai Elite i20 and Maruti Baleno?
  • Selecting a car depends on certain factors such as budget, preference of the segment, requirement of features, preference of the brand, usage of the car, preferred fuel type, service network, etc. The Kia Sonet has grabbed everyone’s attention even before it has turned a wheel. A long feature list with yummy segment firsts and the Seltos’ success story fired up the excitement considerably. If you are looking for a feature rich sub-compact SUV, then you may opt for it. Whereas, if you are looking for a no-nonsense, calm driving premium hatch with a refined engine then the Honda Jazz would be a better pick. On the other hand, the Hyundai Elite i20 makes a strong case with its spacious cabin, sheer comfort and upmarket styling and would be a great option if you are looking for an all-rounder with plenty on offer. Lastly, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno would be the one to go with if you are looking for a hatch which ticks a lot of boxes, the Baleno is a great option. There's plenty of features, efficient engine options and more space than a number of more expensive sedans. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive for a better understanding of comfort, features, performance and compatibility. You may click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details. Read More: - Jazz ZX CVT vs Elite i20 Asta Option vs Baleno Alpha CVT
Q. Please let me know the best suggestion between Baleno Delta variant and Kia Sonet 1.2 MT HTK.
  • Selecting between the Kia Sonet and Maruti Suzuki Baleno would depend on certain factors such as your preference of the segment, fuel type, features required, maintenance costs, etc. The Delta variant is priced at Rs.6.56 Lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi) whereas the HTK variant is priced at Rs.7.69 Lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). If we talk about Kia Sonet, it is tuned for comfort. That’s pretty much the ride and handling package of the Sonet. 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.

There's plenty of features, efficient engine options and more space than a number of more expensive sedans.
