Sonet htx imt review: rollback on slopes is easily managebale with the quick shift from the brake to the accelerator.Use handbrake for extreme slopes.Love it in the city and highway.Maintain it at 2k rpm for around 16 milages.If you rev it mileage drops to 12-14.Suspension is hard and every bump is felt.Stable and less roll on the highway.
Mileage very poor, Comfort level is good but not at all good for passenger, Luggage cabinet is compact
Poor brakes, Very very weak suspension, No sufficient leg space even in drivers seat, Very bad after sales service, To be improve is first improve the breaks, Improve the suspension by providing heavy action coil springs along with suitable shockabsorbers, Provide leg space in drivers seat by reducing the boot space
I own 7dct petrol version.The journey so far have been enjoyable.Everything is more than my expectation except the shock absorbers should have been little softer.
All i like this car performance and look as suv.No comments.I love cars i like car dekho website facilities.
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.
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.
