Kia has scheduled the launch of the updated Sonet and Seltos for the first week of May. 

Apart from the revised Kia logo, the Sonet will get new and improved features, including paddle shifters (for its automatic variants) and additional voice command controls. Also, HTX will be the new base-spec automatic variant, replacing the HTK+ variant. 

Here are all the changes detailed. 

Now, to the Seltos. The SUV will feature paddle shifters (for its automatic variants), remote engine start/stop (for some manual variants), and the new 6-speed iMT (for the mid-spec HTK+, which is the 1.5-litre petrol variant). Also, there will be a brand new Gravity Edition, which you can read more about here

Engine and transmission options for the Sonet will remain the same, while those in the Seltos will receive a minor update.
