The MPV made its local debut earlier this year and it has been well-received by consumers. It is one of the top-selling Kia models currently in India. The Maruti Suzuki Brezza compact SUV received a new generation a few months ago with a number of changes inside and out and is powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder K15C mild-hybrid petrol engine.
Customers wanting to own a Maruti Suzuki Brezza will have to wait up to 10 months. The Kia Sonet has a waiting period of up to 9 months in India. The Sonet competes in a highly competitive segment against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger, Mahindra XUV300 and the segment-leading Tata Nexon.
