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.

    MG Astor

    • Premium interior cabin quality
    • Advanced features like ADAS and AI assistant
    • Refined and powerful turbo-petrol engine
    • Classy looks

    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.

    MG Astor

    • Missing some premium features like ventilated seats and a wireless charger
    • Rear cabin width not ideal for three passengers
    • No diesel engine option
