Expected updates include borrowed exterior features from the Seltos facelift, enhancements in safety like 6 airbags and an ADAS suite for top variants, and a focus on interior refinement. The teaser hints at revised bumpers, new LED lighting, and a redesigned dashboard, among other enhancements.

Despite recent engine updates to comply with BS6 Stage II, no significant changes in powertrains are anticipated. The Sonet facelift is likely to maintain its engine lineup, comprising a 1.2-liter petrol, a 1.0-liter turbo petrol, and a 1.5-liter diesel, each with their respective power and torque figures and transmission options.
