    Big Personality 

    The Kia Sone­t is a compact SUV. I have driven it for some time­. It has many features at a low price. The­ design looks stylish. The inside is comfortable­. It costs less than other SUVs like it. This make­s it a good value. But the back seats are­ a bit small. The engine ge­ts noisy when driving fast. Overall, the Kia Sone­t is a great choice. It is reliable­ and affordable for a small SUV.

    A Compact Powerhouse with Room for Improvement 

    After months of anticipation, I finally got my hands on the Kia Sonet. Right off the bat the 1.0 Turbo GDi engine with 120 PS power and a 7 speed DCT gives the Sonet a peppy and responsive feel on Indian roads makes city commutes and highway cruising a breeze. The compact SUV stance paired with an impressive ground clearance of 205 mm handles potholes and rough terrains easily making it a perfect companion. The interiors are plush with a 10.25 inch HD touchscreen taking center stage with features like UVO connect makes my tech savvy heart skip a beat.

    go far from the city 

    Kia Sonet is a family-friendly car model and is my favourite. It is an affordable car and has a good seating capacity that is also very comfortable for the passengers. It has manual transmission and good mileagel. The price range is very affordable and promises a great performance. The maintenance is quite manageable and service cost is average. I have had one of my best driving experiences with this car model. And i would recommend this to all.

    Feature rich 

    The quality is finishing is very impressive in Kia Sonet and is a great package compact SUV. The interior look very nice and is a feature rich compact SUV and the safety features are superb. Both the rows are very comfortable and with my turbo petrol DCT engine the performance is very strong and the driving experience is very good. The body control is predictable and is easy to drive in the city but the ride quality is firm. It comes with the feature packed interior and the engine is refined but the second row is not comfortable for three passangers.

    Lets start 

    There is quite a bit, But lets start with the engine.Rather than outsourcing hybrid engine suzuki kept things in house which gives a lot of advantage in mileage and easy access to services for owners.
