Sonet vs XUV300
Kia Sonet is the second bestselling model of the South Korean auto giant in India after Seltos and despite tough competition, it has earned a strong position in the highly competitive compact SUV space.

Kia Sonet is one of the most popular compact SUVs in the Indian market. With the rapidly rising demand for SUVs, every automaker in the country has been trying to grab a sizeable chunk of the pie and Kia is also among them. After tasting success with the Seltos mid-size SUV, Kia introduced Sonet in the country in the compact SUV segment, which is one of the most competitive spaces owing to the high demand for SUVs and the affordability of these compact vehicles.

Kia India launched the updated Sonet compact SUV in January this year. The Kia Sonet facelift came with a significantly updated design and a host of revamped features. However, the automaker kept the basic silhouette of the compact SUV the same as the pre-facelift version of the car. With the launch of this updated version, Kia Seltos has re-energised its rivalry with competitors such as Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Nissan Magnite, and Mahindra XUV300.
