The Kia Sonet has a myriad number of choices when you factor in the trim levels and the engine choices, making buying one confusing. But the HTK+ may be the sweet spot of the range, read on to know why.

The Kia Sonet is the second car after the Seltos that the brand has launched and managed to be an instant hit. It launched in September this year and has already found more than 10,000 happy homes due to its aggressive and appealing design language, packed to the gills feature list, and value-for-money price range. It competes against the likes of the new Nissan Magnite, Tata Nexon, and its sibling the Hyundai Venue in a tightly packed segment. We have a video today that has been uploaded by Plus Drive which showcases what may be the best trim to buy, the Sonet HTK+.
