Kia Sonet OR Ford EcoSport ?

Kia entered the sub-4m SUV with the launch of the Sonet in September 2020. And with the launch, the Kia SUV has been a moment hit becoming the best-seller in its class. However, with the high demand, the waiting periods on the sub-4m SUV have also gone up to three months. So, if you’re willing to shop for a sub-4m and not willing to attend for the Sonet, can the EcoSport be a worthy alternative? Let’s determine .

Before diving into the detailed comparison let’s take a glance at dimensions:

The EcoSport is slightly longer and taller than the Sonet. It also features a longer wheelbase.

When it involves width, the Sonet has a foothold over the EcoSport.



The Kia Sonet offers two petrol engine options while the EcoSport only has one.

The EcoSport’s 1.5-litre engine is that the most powerful engine here but its the Sonet’s 1.0-litre turbo unit that creates the foremost torque.

The Sonet’s 1.2-litre is that the least powerful and also makes the smallest amount torque.

Both the SUVs here are offered with automatic drive options. Where the Sonet gets a 7-speed dual-clutch, the EcoSport is obtainable with a 6-speed converter automatic.

The Sonet also offers a clutchless iMT with its turbocharged 1.0-litre unit whereas the low-spec unit is merely present with a manual.

Both the SUVs are offered with a 1.5-litre diesel producing identical 100PS. But when it involves torque, the Sonet takes the lead.

The Sonet also gets a more powerful version of the 1.5-litre engine but it’s offered with the 6-speed automatic only. It makes 15PS and 10Nm quite the quality 1.5-litre engine.

While the EcoSport gets a 5-speed manual transmission, the Sonet comes with a 6-speed manual unit. The Sonet is that the only SUV here to return with an automatic drive with the diesel
