Basmati is an expensive long grain aromatic rice variety that is prized for its usage in exotic rice dishes such as biryani and pulao / pilaf. Sonamasoori is a daily use medium / small length grain of rice. It is used mostly in southern India, especially in the state of Andhra Pradesh/ telangana. Typically, you'd use basmati for special occasions, for guests, for particular dishes that need the rice grains to be fluffy, long and separate. Sonamasoori and many other rice varieties are for daily meals where the rice might be mashed with lentil stew (dal) and eaten.

If you are looking for good basmati, your best bet is to go to any Indian ethnic grocery store and look for basmati brand such as tilda, zafrani, India gate golden excel (or some such name), etc. Basically look for really expensive rice. Each brand would have it's own hierarchy of rice, and usually quality and price are directly linked.

Rice tid-bit: Sona Masoori and Ponni are 'raw' rices (not parboiled) and used in everyday South Indian cooking. Basmati is a special occasion rice as it has a distinct flavor mainly used in biryani and pulav and its priced more per pound. Used to be so hard when I first came to US (long time ago) to find these raw rices. Most stores only carried Basmati export quality rice. Now you can get anything and everything in US. Smilie
