Q. Kia Sonet or Tata Nexon or Nissan Magnite which one ia suitable for a person looking for a compact SUV with space
  • If space is your priority we would suggest you go for Nissan Magnite. Magnite offers an ample amount of features.The Magnite is delivering some good old fashioned value for money. Nissan has managed to carve out ample space for a family of five. At the rear, even a 6 footer will have space to spare both in terms of knee room and headroom. For a better understanding of compatibility and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership..Read more -SonetvsMagnitevsNexon.
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. 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
