KIA SONET DRIVE IMPRESSIONS.

Kia launched the Sonet last year in September. Sonet is Kia's second offering in India. Kia Sonet offers a lot of features with thier Sub 4M SUV. Infact it is most feature loaded vehicle in segment.
SPACE AND COMFORT- Kia sonet offers decent amount of space on offer. It's not the best. Other vehicles in segment like Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300 just offers way better space as comapre to Kia sonet. Sonet does have best in segment boot space but the rear seat space is not up to the mark. let's talk about the suspension setup, The suspension on the Kia Sonet is really stiff. You can feel the stiif inside the cabin a lot. Over the bad roads its not the best.
DRIVING EXPERIENCE- Kia Sonet is offered with 3 engine options, a 1.5L diesel, a 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.0L turbocharged petrol engine. I drove the diesel and the turbo petrol. Both the engines are great in terms of power and pulls nicely. But there is a little problem in design according to me. You see the dashboard area looks too busy with all the buttons and controls. It kinda distract drivers mind while driving which is dangerous. I am not happy with suspension personally. They are just stiff.
FEATURES- There is no doubht that Kia Sonet offera a ton of features like ventilated seats, 360 degree parking camera, led headlapms, air purifier, electric sunroof, bose speakers, UVO connected car tech and etc. It is loaded with features.
THE FINAL VERDICT- I dont personally like the Kia Sonet. It does offers a lot of features but the driving dynamics are not up to the mark. It is not that comfortable too and the safety is a big concern. If its bigger sister scored only 3 stars and you can imagine what this will do in a crash test. At last lets give it a AUTOGRAM07 score. Kia Sonet scored 6.5/10 which is not the best score in our overall reviews. I dont personally recommand you the Sonet. There are better cars in segment which may not offer as much as features like sonet but they are better.

  1. Yeah kia safety level is worst than maruti Brezza and s cross . And Tata is on another level in safety terms. Looks and features should not be considered against safety.
