The past week was a busy one for the Indian automotive industry with new variants being added to two Tata models, as well as a launch date getting confirmed. Global markets had a couple of cars getting extensive generational updates. Here's more on what went down:

Kia Sonet Gets A Launch Date 

Kia Motors’ upcoming Sonet sub-4m SUV is just around the corner as the carmaker has announced a launch date. Kia’s third model in the country after the Seltos and Carnival will be offered in six variants, boasts a premium design, comes loaded with features and a wide range of powertrain options.

Tata Nexon XM (S) Launch

Tata Motors has continued its habit of trickling down the electric sunroof to lower variants of the Nexon with the launch of the XM (S) variant. This makes it the most affordable car in India to get a sunroof. Not only it retains all the bits from the XM variant it is based on, it also gets additional kit.

Tata Harrier XT+ Launch 

Another Tata model to get an additional variant is the Harrier with the launch of the XT+ variant. Like it was the case of Nexon, the panoramic sunroof from the top spec variants has tricked down to the XT variant trim. It gets all the bits from the XT variant but still misses out on some niceties from higher end variants. Head here for more details.
