If safety is your number one concern, then the GTX+ variant of the Sonet is your only choice

The Sonet has quite the hype surrounding it, with most of it emanating from its lengthy features list. While most of the noteworthy features can be had in the HT Line variants, the top-of-the-line GTX+ variant offers the best when it comes to safety. So what are your powertrain options and what are they going to cost you if you want the fully kitted out Sonet?

Verdict

The GTX+ variant of the Sonet brings with it the promise of six airbags -- and that is the biggest reason to go for it. You also get more driver assistance safety features for the manual and automatic variants and sporty aesthetics to separate it from the rest of the range. The fact that it does not command a hefty premium over the HTX+ is what seals the deal. The GTX+ will not only wow you over its sub-4 metre rivals, but you can even consider it over similarly priced variants of the Seltos and the Creta.
