Should you consider the GT Line or Tech Line of the Kia Sonet? Let’s go through their feature list to find out

Update (18/09/2020): Kia has launched the Sonet with prices beginning from Rs 6.71 lakh (ex-showroom). Read more about it here.

Unlike Hyundai, which took nearly four years to turn the Carlino sub-4 metre SUV into the Venue, Kia has taken a much shorter time for the Sonet. Unveiled as a concept at the 2020 Auto Expo, it took Kia just six months to reveal the production model. But then again the difference between the two are few and far apart. So it may not have been all that different for Kia after all. What will be difficult for you though is getting your head around the feature list of the Sonet. Offered in two distinct trims: GT Line (top-spec) and Tech Line trims and multiple variants under each, picking the right variant is no easy task. So here’s a breakdown of all the variants and what they offer. But first, let’s get the routine stuff out of the way.
