Q. I decided to buy a new petrol sub 4 meter SUV. My choices are KIA Sonet HTK or TATA Nexon XM or Maruti Vitara brezza LXI. Having lot bits of confusion choosing the right vehicle, Since each model having its own Pros and Cons. I don't have any particular requirements. But it should be overall good in engine performance, ride quality, safety, mileage, material quality, etc. Please suggest your opinion so that it will be very much helpful for me to buy a right car.
  • Selecting one would depend on certain factors such as budget, brand preference, drivability, preference of the features, etc. Among the options, if you are looking for a feature rich car with smooth engine options and a premium quality interior, then we would suggest you to opt for the Kia Seltos. The base variant of Maruti Vitara Brezza does not offer much of the features and the cabin feels bare-bone. On the other hand, if you can stretch you budget a little further then the XM (S) variant of Tata Nexon could be a good option too. 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: - [New Tata Nexon XM (S) Is The Most Affordable Car In India To Come With A Sunroof@https://www.zigwheels.com/news-features/news/tata-nexon-xm-s-variant-launched-at-rs-836-lakh-gets-a-sunroof/39628/
  • I too was in the same dilemma - I was confused between top variants of Sonet and Nexon and mid variants of Creta which are all similarly priced (budget of 15-16 lakhs). Nexon has the best suspension and ride quality over bad roads, Sonet has the most features, Creta is bigger and more SUV like. So which one to choose? I spent a lot of time researching the pros and cons of each car and more than that I made a list of the most important features I wanted in my new car and finally arrived on Kia Sonet. 1) Great performance - I’m a car enthusiast and drive for fun instead of need. It’s mostly long drives and less city drive and I wanted a peppy fun to drive engine. I test drove Sonet and Nexon
  • Guys, Just go for NEXON. It was awesome car with 3 drive modes. If you are looking for mileage s**t to ECO mode, if you want performance shift to SPORTS mode. Its serves both the purposes. Its our wish. Coming to Comfort, Safety, Build Quality NEXON is par better in its segment. Looks wise 2020 Facelift is having definitely a good look. I don't want to comment on looks as its personal touchbase for everyone. It differs from person to peronsFINALY I VOT FOR NEXON

Q. Which is best variant(petrol) in Kia Sonet to buy?
  • If you are on a budget, looking for a practical car for your family and like calm driving, you may go for 1.2 HTK variant. If you often travel on highways too you may opt for HTK Plus Turbo iMT. If you are looking for a fun to drive car, you may go for HTK Plus Turbo DCT. If Budget is not an issue and want a feature loaded car with great performance you may go for GTX Plus Turbo iMT. You may compare all its variants accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • I will suggest HTX 1 L turbo petrol variant as it is budget friendly with high amount of exciting features . its on road price is 11.20 lalks.
  • To get a best in class feel, I recommend you to go with GTX.

Q. Is Kia Sonet or Hyundai Venue which 1 is good for everyday use?
  • Both Kia Sonet and Hyundai Verna shares the same powertrain and a number of features as well. However, 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, ventilated front seats, drive modes and traction modes, etc. Moreover, if you are looking for a car similar to the Sonet, but without a flashy design, Hyundai Venue fits the bill. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.Read More: - Kia Sonet: Same Price, Other SUV Options - Kia Sonet Driven: More Than Just A Great Brochure? - Hyundai Venue vs Kia Sonet
  • Venue doesn’t even look like an SUV. It looks more like a hatchback. From Indiase also Venue gives a feel of a Hatchback. I’ve driven both and honestly Venue can’t be compared to Sonet at all. Sonet is a different class all together. Be in looks or seating comfort or features. Venue should be compared to the likes of i20 or Baleno
