Last year, the Korean automaker Kia launched its first sub-4-meter SUV in the country namely- Sonet. It became the top-selling car in India in the very first month of its launch. Right now, it is among the best-selling SUVs in the sub-4-meter SUV space. Moreover, it is also one of the most feature-loaded crossovers in its segment. Kia Sonet is among the most premium and feature-loaded sub-compact SUVs. At the time of its launch, Kia had announced that Sonet will be made in India for the world.
