I have been in search of the perfect compact SUV for over a year now and during this time frame. I have been test-driving a lot of cars. But the Kia Sonet was the one that I felt was the most well-rounded of the lot. So I finally took the plunge and decided to book the Kia Sonet GTX+ DCT in August 2022. However never did I know that the scenario would change for the better when I visited the Kia showroom in September along with a friend of mine who also was keen on the Kia Sonet. In the stockyard, I witnessed a brand new Kia Sonet X-Line in a matte finish just arriving and I immediately knew that I wanted it. So I enquired with the Kia executives and they told me that they didn’t have any bookings for the said model and I could be the first one from the showroom to get it delivered, so I immediately did the formalities to get my existing booking converted, and made the payment.

I just had to wait for the launch of the car at the dealership and the completion of RTO formalities. Finally. the day arrived and my car was set to be delivered on the auspicious occasion of Onam. It was such a joy to witness the Kia Sonet X Line 1.0 DCT in its ravishing matte graphite colour waiting to be unveiled in the showroom and for me to be the first one to get my hands on it in town. The delivery ceremony was an absolute treat and I was overjoyed to get handed the keys to the car. The Kia Sonet X Line is definitely a looker and it grabs attention everywhere you go. Moving on to the car, the splendid siege interiors, leatherette ventilated seats, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with reverse camera and parking sensors, Bose speakers, voice command, TPMS, Air purifier, and electric sunroof are some of the many luxuries you just can’t get enough of.

The performance is exemplary with the quick-shifting 7-speed DCT being quick and agile. Mileage has been great too, Drive modes and traction control modes are nifty features that further add to the convenience. We have driven the Kia Sonet for over 1000 kilometers over the past 2 months and it has been an exciting experience every drive, be it on the highway or in traffic, The Kia Sonet pampers you with all its finesse, and overtakes on the highway are seamless and even in traffic. The Kia Sonet never tires you out. The smoothness of the DCT and the sheer convenience of an automatic truly enhances the experience. I am sure you too would never be disappointed with the Kia Sonet.
