Already use "search" but no one say about X Compact (Kugo) at 2019 :crying:
Someone know how to root with Locked Bootloader for X Compact?
AFAIK, since the Xperia Z3+ was released, with the implementation of dm-verity, it's not possible to have root privileges if one keeps its bootloader locked. The old Z3 and Z3 Compact models were the last ones to allow it. Nevertheless, the modifications were, then, done on the system partition.

If your device happens to have a marshmallow ROM, you'd have the chance to make a backup of its TA partition (which contains the DRM keys), because the process of unlocking its bootloader wipes that partition for good. With that backup, it would be possible to prepare the stock kernel including your phone's DRM keys, and by ooting it through Magisk, it' would be highly probable to trick its system as if the bootloader was locked.
