Features make or break a car and any new car must have all of the features which its rivals have but also along with that add some more to it too which further make it stand out and give buyers a reason to get that car. Nissan has just shown the Magnite in India and it has some features which its rivals do not. So to settle this we did a simple feature comparison with the other new compact SUV which is the KIA Sonet. Take a look.
Nissan Magnite vs KIA Sonet Basic Features Compare
Both the Nissan Magnite and KIA Sonet have the basic features covered. By that we mean touch screen system plus climate control, rear ac vents, cruise control, digital dials, smartphone connectivity, steering controls, LED projectors with DRLs and more.
That said there are differences. The Magnite has a smaller 8inch touchscreen and the Sonet has a larger 10.25 inch one. The MID on the Magnite is a full 7inch TFT display and is better than the one on the Sonet. The Sonet though has the more responsive and better looking touchscreen with crisp graphics but the Magnite is not that. Where the Magnite also scores is the nice controls for the climate control which are better than the one on the Sonet.
Nisan Magnite vs KIA Sonet Extra Features
Now let us talk about the extra features which both have and which both boast about as their USPs. The newer Magnite has a 360 degree camera including a front camera which helps parking in tight spots. The Sonet gets a normal rear camera but does get front parking sensors also along with rear ofcourse.
Where the Magnite scores is also the animation that you see in the digital instrument cluster. But there are some key features which the Sonet has and that is a sunroof which is missing on the Magnite plus connected tech with extra features like a remote start stop and more.
Other special features which both SUVs share would be that both also have wireless charging and an air purifier plus ambient lighting. However the Magnite has this as part of its tech pack which is not standard.
In terms of audio system the Nissan Magnite has a 6-speaker unit while the KIA Sonet has a 7-speaker Bose audio system. One last thing the Magnite has a special four coat red colour which is an USP while the Sonet gets cooled seats which is also a big USP.
Nissan Magnite vs KIA Sonet Safety Features Comparison
Safety is very important and both offer good amounts of standard basic safety equipment which is essential. The Magnite offers dual airbags, Hill start Assist, traction control, ABS with EBD plus Vehicle dynamics control. The Sonet offers six airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, Traction control, Vehicle Stability Management, brake assist.
The Sonet seems to still have the edge over the Magnite in terms of features in an outright comparo. While the Magnite has some crucial special features it misses out on some big ones which the Sonet has. Thus the KIA Sonet for now retains the crown for having the most features in its class.
