The compact SUV’s mid-cycle facelift introduces numerous aesthetic updates, most notably a completely redesigned front fascia. The front of the sub-4-metre SUV now features an LED headlight setup, new L-shaped LED DRLs, a new front bumper with redesigned skid plates, and horizontally-mounted fog lamps. At the back, the updated Sonet sports a LED light bar connecting the two C-shaped LED tail lamps, a redesigned bumper, a roof-mounted spoiler, and new dual-tone 16-inch alloy wheels.
It also gets significant interior upgrades, including a larger 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster borrowed from its bigger sibling, the Seltos. It retains the same 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, but adds a new smaller screen below it for climate control information and toggle controls. The SUV’s seat upholstery has also been revamped, lending a more sophisticated feel to the interior.
In terms of features, the introduction of a Level 1 ADAS suite is a major update, offering Front Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Leading Vehicle Departure Alert (LVDA), and Lane Following Assist (LFA). All trims come standard with six airbags, hill-start assist, a tyre pressure monitoring system, and ESC. Additional features in higher trims include cornering lamps, a four-way powered driver’s seat, and a 360-degree camera with a blind-view monitor. Top-spec Sonets also offer premium features like ventilated front seats, leatherette upholstery, a sunroof, and LED ambient lighting.
The Sonet facelift comes with three engine options: a 1.2-litre petrol engine producing 83hp (paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox), a 120hp turbo-petrol engine, and a 1.5-litre diesel engine delivering 116hp.
