As the coronavirus pandemic becomes better in most of the world, people are finally venturing out and the automobile industry is again flourishing with a comeback for Tata Motors and Maruti Suzuki registering a growth of 30%. The festive season is upon us in India, and you can brace yourself for many more such launches in this sector. Some of the more exciting ones are as follows,
Hyundai Elite i20
The Elite i20 will be launched later this month with three BS6 compliant engines. Two of them will have petrol and the third, a diesel engine. New projector fog lamps, LED lamps and a sunroof and alloy wheels will be the highlight of the new car. The ex-showroom price for the same will be nearly Rs. 5.6 lakhs.
Maruti Swift Facelift
Similar to what a makeover feels like, the term ‘facelift’ has been aptly used for this hatchback that has been trusted for more than 20 years. It has wheels of alloy and a brand new power train. It will sport a 1.2 litre-K12N DualJet petrol engine. The pricing for the same should be around Rs. 5.50 lakhs.
BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe
Looking to have the most affordable BMW ever? You can pre-book it as less as Rs. 50, 000! It is equipped with a 2.0-litre diesel engine and you can have it for nearly Rs. 30 lakhs. While it is available with petrol and diesel engines globally, India will probably just have a diesel one, running at 187 bhp.
Land Rover Defender
The Defender is making headlines as it has left buyers spoilt for choice. It comes in a 3 and 5 body variant, with options for the roof that includes a fixed metal door, sliding panoramic roof, or a sliding fabric one. The ex-showroom prices have initiated pre-bookings at Rs. 69.9 lakhs. This beast has a 2.0 lite engine and delivers 292 bhp power.
The Audi Q2 will be a middle-class dream come true as it is hailed as being the smallest and most affordable SUV manufactured by the company. Scheduled to have a virtual launch, it will compete against the key players including Mercedes-Benz, Volvo, and BMW. The car comes with a 5 year bundle that ensures service charges, an extended warranty, and roadside assistance. Booking starts with a down payment of Rs. 2 lakhs.
