Variant Recommendation

author

KIA offers the Sonet in a total of 19 variants, which feature three engine options. The base HTE variant provides essential safety and basic features. It is suitable for those open to aftermarket upgrades. For those who prefer the NA petrol engine, the HTK & HTK+ variants offer extra value. The HTK+ variant is available with all three engine options and it provides a good number of features. The HTX variant stands out as a highly cost-effective choice. It is available with turbo petrol and diesel engines. It also has all available transmission options. We recommend the HTX+ variant if you are seeking premium features. However, people consider the GTX+ & X-Line variants to be overpriced. The decision to choose these variants ultimately lies with the buyer.
