For those who understand that bigger isn't always better, this is the best vehicle money can buy. It not only boasts the most extensive feature set, including integrated rear sunblinds, an air purifier, 70 connected features, and the largest boot space in the segment but also ensures you're ready for a road trip adventure.

The major highlight is the addition of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) features. Although the Venue took the lead in introducing advanced driving features to the segment, the Sonet isn't far behind. This camera-based system offers 10 autonomous driving features, with five being practical for daily use. High-Beam Assist, Leading Vehicle Departure Alert, Forward Collision Warning, and Forward Collision Avoidance Assist make your drive safer.

What’s also updated is the driver instrument cluster - a straight pick from the Seltos but with a slightly lower capacity processor. The animations aren’t as smooth as the Seltos, but the screen with it’s customisable display remains one of the best in the business.
