    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
    • Hyundai venue is a better car then sonet. Hyundai service is superb under all conditions. Kia is a second rated even in Korea. Venue is best in class. Go for venue 1.0 turbo petrol. Great driving experience. Amazing. Good mileage.
    • Kia is having hyundai engine so it does not matter whether you go for venue or sonet but sonet looks good and feature loaded car. Kia is expanding its services and as you can see seltos is already a market leader.

    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/

    • A very vague answer to my question
    Q. Which one is good Kia Sonet Or Maruti XL5?
    • Maruti XL5 is yet to be launched and it would not be fair to give any verdict here. On the other hand, Kia Sonet is a brilliant sub-4meter offering from Kia Motors and it offers a great deal of modern-day features such as UVO connected car tech, air purifier, a sunroof, and wireless charging. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
