In the compact SUV segment, the Sonet has emerged as the fourth bestselling model in the country in August 2021. The top-three sellers in this segment were the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza (12,906 units), Tata Nexon (10,006 units), and the Hyundai Venue (8,377 units). That said, it is worth noting that the Sonet has missed the third rank by just 625 units.
Considering the festive season, it will be interesting to see if the Kia Sonet manages to outsell the Hyundai Venue in September.
