Greetings !!

Choosing a car depends on preference set of criteria. Like for someone who seek
> No Compromose on Build Quality
> Advanced Safety Features like ESP, Traction Control
> Relative more space in Rear Seat

there is Nexon XM Sunroof as an excellent choice and yes for someone who seek a car from proud 'Make in India' concept - Nexon XM Sunroof is an excellent choice to consider in.

However, As is your first car its important to move ahead with times and choose an option which offers
> Convenience
> Comfort

Been world moving towards Automatic Car, if no proper Automatic but you seek fun of Manual then choose in IMT Transmission
Kia Sonet HTX IMT is an excellent choice against listed options - to compare against Nexon
> Relative Better Visibility as no thick A Pillar obstructing view
> Slight more responsive and fun in pickup in Sonet Turbo against Nexon Turbo

Also, with IMT you get
> Yes enjoy the fun as like Manual Transmission car gives with Sheer convenience of no manual clutch pedal
> Creep Mode Functionality on 1st and 2nd gear - useful while driving in heavy traffic

Adding on Sonet HTX IMT to view feels more stylish with
> Responsive Fluic Touchscreen
> More Stylish or shall say most stylish sub 4 meter car with LED Headlights and Tiger nose front grille
> Interior Aesthetics in Dual Tone Beige and Black feels more upmarket

But pls note that Rear Seat Legroom is compact in Sonet. However - scheduled maintenance cost are lower in Sonet as refererd in MyCarHelpline Service Calculator Section

So, essentially if Preference is
> Safety, Immaculate Build Quality, More Space and majorly highway usage - Nexon XM Sunroof is an excellent choice
> If Preference is Convenience, More Fun in Pickup Performance, More Stylish, Higher Features, Better Touch interface - Sonet HTX IMT

In terms of Color of Kia Sonet
Red as Dark shade just looks awesome or may choose in Pearl Aurora Black
https://www.mycarhelpline.com/images/easyblog_articles/1105/b2ap3_thumbnail_Kia-Sonet-Front.jpg
Although these are dark shades and need slight more maintenance in terms of park under shade and clean up but car just looks more appealing

Sonet HTX Diesel or Petrol
See Convenience is solo point in favor of IMT
Yes Diesel is more fun and if you give highest important to power delivery with superior mid range and fun as point then can consider Sonet HTX Diesel - adding benefit is lower running cost

Sonet HTX Turbo Lag
Yes has slight lag under 2000 rpm - but is not something which is bothersome
There is enough power at low end and mid range just turns awesome

Have a test drive and experience - am sure wont be disappointed.

Hi,

No problem as per se, but Sonet HTX is more value against HTK Plus as the features offered attarct much more price in terms of styling aspect
> LED Headlights
> Premium Dual Tone Beige and Black Interior - feels with bright cabin experience
> Adjustable rear head restraints
> Lifestyle features - Remote Engine Start on Smart Key, Push Button Ignition, Electric Sunroof

is getting all in just Rs 55K higher On road price makes it more than the cost of the features
However, yes if price increases in Jan 2021 (which is to yes likely happen) then HTK Plus would be worth - so depends on in prices in Jan 2021 of the car.

Color is what indvidual choice but red to view looks more upmarket on Sonet design perspective.

Greetings - Premium Support entails 1 Question with Followup replies related to same original Query only
This is a separate question of Creta and Seltos in line

Still to assist in brief
There is host of difference in Seltos and Creta when bought in line against Nexon
> Sonet is Turbo charged petrol engine with IMT
> Creta and Seltos is in Naturally aspirated Petrol Engine in Manual Transmission

What it means is that
> You get superior mid range Power delivery in Sonet
> Sheer convenience as no Manual Clutch Pedal
> Gets easy in traffic as creep mode on 1st gear makes it a breeze

However, there definite is a turbo lag at lower RPM, while Seltos and Creta
> Bigger Engine feels more refined
> No Lag at lower RPM

Also when you compare Creta against Sonet
> Creta Suspension is on soft side - Creta feels more Plush
> Creta certainly steering too feels more light
> Yes is Creta more spacious against Sonet

However, Seltos on other hand is equipped with stiffer suspension
> So if seek maximum highway use
> More Spacious than Sonet
then Seltos

But do note that these are basic entry models so features are slight restricted

So ends down to
> If you seek features, more convenience in IMT, superior mid range - Sonet IMT is excellent choice
> If maximum in city drive, more soft and plush ride, family car in space with bigger car appeal and ready to spend extra on accessoris - Creta E
> If seek highway dynamics with more space and readt to spend extra on accessories then Kia Seltos

Hope should help !!

Hi,

When you compare Nexon Manual Transmission XZ Plus against Sonet HTX Turbo IMT, as referred earlier too

Kia Sonet HTX IMT is an excellent choice against listed option
> Relative Better Visibility as no thick A Pillar obstructing view
> Slight more responsive and fun in pickup in Sonet Turbo against Nexon Turbo
> With IMT you get yes enjoy the fun as like Manual Transmission car gives with Sheer convenience of no manual clutch pedal
> Creep Mode Functionality on 1st and 2nd gear - useful while driving in heavy traffic

Sonet definite has an edge over Nexon in terms of drive and handling response
