Not only this, but the Sonet will also have 3 typical traction modes namely Snow, Mud and Sand which will help out the driver to take on the cars over various types of terrains. However, these are the additional features that Kia Sonet will get over the Hyundai Venue.
Hyundai Venue misses out an automatic variant with a diesel powertrain. However, Sonet and Venue share the same engines and specifications.
