As per our expectations, the pricing of Kia Sonet will be aggressive to its rivals.
Kia Sonet's first impression has overwhelmed us with its feature-rich package. It is establishing a new benchmark for the sub-compact SUV segment. But in the end, pricing is the main conclusive factor that has the ability to turn the game in its favor or against. However, we expect its pricing to be between Rs 6.9 lakh to Rs 12.6 lakh. If it manages to be in this range, it can nail the deal.
