    Unbeatable Features

    Not so good but sonet is a better choice for those who want bulky features. Kia maintains its brand value. Kia sonet attracts youngsters in india. What a Design Loved it. Pros- more features, nice interior design, front looking feel is good. Cons- The back design looks like an old design, safety needs to be improved.

    No rear Head rest for most models, then come its premium!!!

    Fixed headrest for the first 6-8 models for the rear seat, then how can it get a good safety rating..was shocked to know they are not providing head rest for rear, took the decision not to buy before the test ride itself !!! I don't understand how they take decisions like this, I think we have to go for Indian manufacturers like TATA & Mahindra (they are more safety headed now) which is really makes us proud.I can easily bet this will also get 2 stars like Nios !!! Then why pay so much for Gimmicky features without any basic safety features. Better go with Altroz, Nexon, Ford or Volkswagen
