Kia Sonet

  • Looks curvy and powerful. Lots of variants to choose from and proper automatics too. Like the Seltos the interiors don't disappoint. New update brings four airbags and TPMS as standard. Six airbags are now available on more models too. Some premium features and transmissions have also trickled down to lower variants.

Renault Kiger

  • Great looks
  • space and practicality
  • good features and wide range of petrol engines and transmissions. All at a killer price tag.

Kia Sonet

  • Not enough width for three adults. No cooled glove box or adjustable front arm rest.

Renault Kiger

  • No diesel
  • no sunroof and interior quality isn't as good as some of its rivals.

Q. I am very confused between should Sonet buy the petrol version or diesel my daily run was 100 km per day which one should buy petrol or diesel and what should be the mileage of these two?
  • Selecting between the fuel type depends on your daily running with the car and as per your requirements, diesel would be a better pick. Diesel engines usually have better fuel efficiency compared to the petrol counterparts and diesel engines have higher torque and they give a smoother drive for long distances. Kia Sonet gets a 1.5-litre diesel unit that makes 100PS and 240Nm with the manual and 115PS and 250Nm with the auto transmission. The claimed fuel efficiency stands at 24.1kmpl for manual and 19kmpl for automatic. 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.
  • If you want mileage friendly vehicle go for diesel which gives you around 24 km , whereas if you are a enthusiastic driver go for petrol which gives you around 18 km
  • Certainly you should opt for Diesel,if your daily run r more than 60km per day

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.

  • Yes it is possible.I bought a kia sonet htx petrol engine car recently and these were the questions i had as well.As the difference amount between htx and htx+ version is 2.3 lakhs i felt it's waste to spend extra money, Instead i can upgrade the htx externally after buying and it worked out well for me.I added the below add ons to my htx car 1.2 air purifiers2.Alloy wheels3.Amplified sound system4.Lightingit costed me around 90k basically i saved 1.5 lakh with extra interest charges on the financial optionshope it was helpful.Thank you.

  • Canceled Venue SX petrol and waited for this and it was worth it. I got HTX diesel at the same ex-showroom price with all the additional features and latest interior & exterior. Engine 5/5Comfort, 5/5Space, 4/5 (4 persons in my family) Interior 5/5 (as per other options in the segment), Overall rating 4.9/5. The only downside is steel wheel caps not looking so great. We will change soon. The showroom guys won't allow for self-insurance/zero bargaining/long waiting if not pre-booked. Hopefully, I pre-booked the first day itself.

  • A compact suv with all features of a larger suv.Value for money.There is a difference of 1.5 lakhs when compared with nexon top end.But with 7 spped dct gear box, 10.25 touch screen, Ventilated seats, Bose systems, Front parking sensors and 6 air bags the difference in amount is justified completely.These features you cant experience in any of the same segment cars.Stylish looks and finishing gives a brand look to the car.City mileage is around 12 to 13high way mileage i am getting 17.

  • The car has been a good experience for 2 months. Delivers what we have paid for it. Ample of space and surprisingly behind is really good. There is some cabin noise and minor issues, but overall worth the cost we pay. Mileage is around 14 to 16 depending on driving in the city.
