Renault Triber

  • Spacious second row
  • removable third row seats
  • big 625-litre boot(without 3rd row)
  • comfortable ride quality.

Kia Sonet

  • The waiting period most definitly is going to be painfully long

  • Highway performance

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. 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
