INTERIOR– The interior of the sonnet is magnificent with a premium finish, but where it lacks is with its instrument cluster which is the odd one out. This could have been a better one. When it is to mention Nissan’s Magnite’s interior, it is more refreshing and economically designed.
MILEAGE– Nissan Magnite delivers 18.75 Km/l of mileage; on the other hand Kia sonet gives 18.40 Km/l which is less than the Magnite.
TRANSMISSION– It is one of the important aspects of any model just like the engine specs. For the Kia Sonet, a buyer gets an option of CVT, AMT and DCT. But if you are planning to own a turbo variant, one get DCT and IMT as an option (which may work for the buyers).On the other hand, the DCT is complex with a dry clutch transmission, this is the reason when a buyer uses this model in a traffic area where one has to stop and go, one may come across the heating issue. The Nissan has kept it simple with CVT transmission, which gives the better output. The shifts offered are very smooth in Magnite and if it is mention about the Turbo CVT of Nissan it is the most affordable compact SUV in the Indian car market.
With the above points explained, hope it is clear now that Nissan Magnite can be a better option than the Kia Sonnet if you are planning to buy an SUV.
