Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Kia Sonet

    • Presence. Tall height and bonnet gives the Sonet a strong stance.
    • Feature packed: ventilated seats, wireless charging, ambient lighting, Bose sound system and lots more.
    • ‘Proper’ automatic options: 7-speed DCT for the turbo-petrol, 6-speed AT for the diesel.
    • Comfortable ride quality: equally adept at tackling bad roads and high-speed cruising.

    Mahindra XUV300

    • Comfortable even over bad roads.
    • Feels premium because of class-leading safety and convenience features.
    • Stable and fun to drive because of steering and good grip.
    • Overtaking on highways easy, thanks to punchy diesel engine.

    Kia Sonet

    • Limited rear-seat width limits usability as a 5-seater.
    • Silly cost-cutting measures: backlight only for driver’s power window, missing chilled glovebox, adjustable front armrest.
    • Automatic transmissions limited to mid-spec HTK+ and top-spec GTX+ variants only.

    Mahindra XUV300

    • Premium experience let down by quality issues like poorly fitting panels, mushy switches and flimsy stalks.
    • Small boot will be a hassle if it’s the only car in the family.
    • Cramped footwell, no space for dead pedal for driver
    • Not the most spacious or comfortable backseat in the class
