Ahead of its official unveiling, the production-ready model has been captured on the camera revealing some interesting exterior and interior details.

The SUV comes with a flat-bottomed multi function steering wheel and nice contoured seats. The badge on the steering and black leather seats with contrast stitching notifies that the spotted model is the fully-loaded GT Line trim. The interior layout and most features have been carried over from the Seltos. Though, the Sonet lacks 7.0-inch TFT LCD display for the MID. There is a smaller multi-colour unit with digital speedo readout.
Some of its key features include Bose sound system, UVO connected car features, automatic climate control, electric sunroof, cruise control, steering mounted controls, wireless charging, auto-folding and adjustable ORVMs, a single rectangular enclosure covering digital instrument console and vertically stacked AC vents.
