Variant Recommendation

author

The KIA Sonet is offered in a total of 19 variants, featuring three engine options. The base HTE variant provides essential safety and basic features, suitable for those open to aftermarket upgrades. For those preferring the NA petrol engine, the HTK & HTK+ variants offer additional value. The HTK+ variant is available with all three engine options and provides a good number of features. The HTX variant stands out as a highly cost-effective choice, available with turbo petrol and diesel engines, along with all available transmission options. If you are seeking premium features, the HTX+ variant is recommended. However, the GTX+ & X-Line variants are considered overpriced, and the decision to choose these variants ultimately lies with the buyer.
