No changes will be made to the engine and transmission options either. The Sonet comes with three engine options: 120PS 1.0-litre turbo petrol, 83PS 1.2-litre petrol, and 100PS/115PS 1.5-litre diesel. The petrol engine is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The turbo-petrol unit comes with a 6-speed iMT and a 7-speed DCT, and the diesel with 6-speed manual and torque converter automatic options.
As for the Seltos, it is expected to get new variants as well as the choice of an iMT (clutchless manual) gearbox. The compact SUV is also likely to come in the Gravity Edition with some cosmetic enhancements and new features, including a panoramic sunroof.
