Talking more about the Sonet, a loaded vehicle would become the compact SUV. The Sonet will theoretically share something with its South Korean equivalent, the Hyundai Location. It will compete with already existing cars on the market, such as Maruti Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV 300, and Hyundai Venue.
Other rivals such as Renault Kiger, Toyota Urban Cruiser (based on Vitara Brezza), and Nissan Magnite will seek to court the same group of customers in the future too. The best-selling vehicles in the monthly sales category clock of about 8-10 K vehicles per month. When sales continue in the coming weeks, Kia too will look at similar figures.
