Editor's View of Kia Sonet

  • Upside

    Like the concept, the production spec Sonet looks curvy and powerful. Lots of variants to choose from and even a diesel auto is on the cards. Like the Seltos the interiors don't disappoint either. Long features list includes ventilated seats

  • Downside

    The waiting period most definitly is going to be painfully long

  • Our Verdict

    The Sonet looks sure to raise the bar a fair few notches for the segment

The Sonet’s feature list has got everyone excited, but can the drive experience build on the hype of the brochure?

    Its been almost 40 days since i purchased kia sonet htx imt.Overall i am very pleased with the experience.I would want to highlight both good points and not so good points: good points: 1.The performance of the car.Having driven amt earlier this car is superb in pickup and the overall road performance.It feels sporty and i always felt enthralled while driving it even in tight spots or open roads.It reaches 100 kmph in no time.The handling even at high speed is superb and you always feel in control of car.Braking at high speed is again pretty good and you feel confident.2.Look and features are superb in this price bracket and i really doubt any other car in this price bracket provides such package of looks, Power and features.Speaker quality is quite good given that it is not bose and an in-house speaker.I had to do few modifications in the speaker settings to get the best output.3.Imt transmission is smooth though gear shifting for me was little hard in beginning as i was not used to this transmission.4.Best part- service- from car sales to first service i have never felt so good in terms of the overall experience.I called my sales advisor when i felt an issue in my car (which was nothing but my inexperience with transmission).He immediately came to my house with one of their service person and looked into the issue.They did not say anything when they found it was nothing but even guided me on the overall transmission and car handling process.That was awesome! even during the service and after i have been getting calls from both kia service center and company on the service experience and it is really good.The service advisor don't force you to buy anything extra, Though they will suggest so.Not so good points:1.Mileage- even after my first service, I am getting mileage of 9-10 kmpl.Company promises 18.2, So i am expecting at least 13-14 in city and 18 in highways.I have not traveled more than 50-60 km in one stretch, So it is still to be tested on long routes.2.Creep mode- i have faced few issues with creep mode particularly in reverse mode where even on flat surfaces sometimes it doesn't work smoothly.3.There are few dos and donts with imt transmission which need to get used to to prolong clutch and transmission life.Overall, Till now i am pleased with the experience and would recommend the car to other buyers.

    Love the car, But mileage is a big issue for turbo petrol variant.Its been about 100 days i own sonet htx petrol.Displays mileage of 9-10 in local without ac.Have done around 800 km highway trip, Still got only around 13.Poor in mileage dept.Performance is very good on highways and imt convenient in city, Little underpowered at low rpm but not as bad as nexon, So satisfactory enuf.Overall i consider it a good buy because my running is less, It gives me pleasure on driving & love the feel inside it.Seats good enuf, Cud hv been better though.Mileage is little disappointing.In hot delhi summer, It may drop to 9 with ac, Will see.

    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.

  • 5.0

    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.

  • 3.0

    nice engine and features with high price pro -good engine (DCT only)good features (HTX plus and GTX plus only)3 years warranty con -price is too high for automatic GTX plus versionrear seat comfort is very bad (its not family car)sonet top variant price are very near to seltos medium variantso should i buy a small automatic DCT car (1.0 turbo 3cylinder engine)with full features for 14.30 lac orshould i buy automatic CVT car (1.5 4cylinder )with all necessary features for 16.30 lac

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Sonet

Q. Which car is better, Sonet or XL6?
  • Selecting between the Kia Sonet and Maruti XL6 would depend on certain factors such as your budget, preference of the segment, usage of the car, features required, etc. The Sonet is an impressive SUV with lots of features, attractive styling, lots of variants to choose from and multiple powertrain options. It is impressive, even more so than the Seltos, as it delivers a palpably richer experience in a smaller package and in a more price-sensitive segment. On the other hand, the XL6 is a good option for a large family looking for one car that could do it all. Maruti has done enough with the XL6 to distinguish it from the Ertiga but a few more wow features and a better safety package would have made it an irresistible package. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.

Q. Is HTX variant worth to buy?
  • If you are looking for a feature-rich iteration of the Sonet then you may go with the HTX variant. The MY2021 Sonet brings in a variety of changes including a new monogram on the wheel hub caps, good tailgate, the steering wheel and the key, new features, and a variant rejig. The HTX variant now gets Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Hill Assist Control (HAC), and 16-inch alloy wheels making it a value for money proposition. 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.
Q. Is HTK Plus variant worth to buy?
  • You may go for the Sonet HTK Plus variant if you are looking for a decently loaded variant of the SUV. The HTK Plus offers semi-leatherette seats with white stitching, auto headlamps, day/night IRVM, 3.5" mono-color display cluster, projector fog lamps, 8 Inch infotainment unit with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, auto climate control, etc. Moreover, safety is taken care by dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, emergency stop signal, follow me home headlamps, speed sensing auto door lock, etc. 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.Read More: - [Kia Sonet 1.2 HTK Plus@https://www.zigwheels.com/newcars/Kia/sonet/1.2-htk-plus

Q. I have booked Sonet. How can I know about delivery status?
  • I an costumer of kia motors. I have buy kia sonet car 1.2HTK plus. My two months of waiting period is already completed still I have not received my car delivery. Now it has been four months I have not received any message and call about car delivery. Dealer always commits me that I will get my car but always fails to come up with his commitment. I am not at all satisfied with this service. I hope I will get my car this week if not I will cancel my booking.Registered name : Abhay Shahaji GhorpadeRegistered phone number: 9823466948Booking Id : B202001506Dealership name :Dhone Wheels Pvt.

  • I have booked a Sonet HTK Plus Petrol on 28th Feb. at Kun Kia Chennai with a tentative time line of 16 weeks. Even after 24 weeks still following with them without any firm answer. I also seriously doubt the transparency of the dealer as they keep saying different waiting customers before me. And top of it you never able to go beyond the dealer as there is no information of KIA team to escalate the issue

Q. How many month waiting of Kia Sonet after booking?
  • Same i booked at the same place on oct 22nd.. I booked GTX DCt petrol variant. I was assured delivery on 16th December 2020 but as of today 4th Feb 2021 they have nothing to say and yet if you call as a new customer they assure you 8 -10 weeks delivery. Is there noone who can give a more clear picture of wth is going on? And if this is whats happening before even getting the car I wonder what kind of service they will proved after sales.. im so conflicted .. whether to wait or move on.Do we as customers don't deserve even a proper reply? Can kia not even be bothered to explain the delay and the tentative date or time line for us to expect rather than people who have paid hard earned money in advance to need to keep visiting their showroom for a reply only to return home even more confused and disappointed?
  • I have booked Kia Sonet HTX+, Diesel, dual Tone (Red & Black) on 22.09.2020 r with Rajesh Motors, Ajmer Road, at Jaipur. At the time of booking, I was assured for a delivery within 6-7 weeks of period. After 87 days of booking, no one has ready to a satisfactory reply of such delay. Contacted their call Centre, mailed at k******s@kiamotorsindia.in and also their higher offices but all were found busy in booking only saying again a lie for assured delivery in the committed waiting period. No RTI is applicable on these lairs. PMO also can do nothing on such companies. For someone a vehicle may be a luxury but for me its a need for day to day life. Really, I am tired of waiting with nuisance reply from KIA/dealer
  • I booked a Sonet Turbo DCT very happily on 10 oct 2020, salesman committed lead time was 3 to 4 wks. And then getting daily updates .. its allocated.. its in transit.. its going to be thr next week..... (beleiving tht i sold my existing car off)... but, as of today 14 Jan 2021.. i ve no update when the 'next week' will come.. And as you all guys may have done.. sent VOC mail to KIA customer service... usual reply 'we apologize for delay.. you ll get your car soon' .. but, still don't know .. when tht 'soon' will come..If anyone can suggest some astrologers.. it ll be highly appreciated.(BTB... i went on to buy a new i10.. by last of week of Dec... ultimately, there is a limit to take the wrath from spouse :) )
