Tata Motors is all set to provide the next round of refreshment to Nano. While the car will receive certain apparent upgrades, there are strong possibilities of CNG (In first half of 2013) and Diesel (By End-2013), along with a powerful 800CC Petrol engine making its way in sometime.

Maruti Suzuki A-Star Facelift

A-Star.jpg

Those who do not find the looks of current A-Star much exciting now have a reason to rejoice. Maruti Suzuki could soon be releasing a facelifted avatar of A-Star with certain tweaks in the design to make it more appealing. It might make debut as early as in March / April. Plus, there are rumors of a price drop to encourage the sales.

  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

Wagon-R.png

Maruti Suzuki is ready with a mid-life makeover of Wagon-R in this tensed competition. You will find changes more or less on the fascia which makes the car look more sophisticated than existing model. The launch isn’t too far and could take place anytime within a couple of months from now. Apart from it, there are rumors of a diesel engine in Wagon-R but there's no concrete information on when it will be available.


  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.4 Lakh


Chevrolet Beat Facelift

Chevrolet Beat.jpg

General Motors has decided to introduce a refreshed Beat which was launched in the international market more than a year ago. This move is to make Beat in line with Chevrolet’s latest ‘family design’ and any major changes are not expected whatsoever.

  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.4 Lakh


Tata Indica XL

Indica.jpg

Tata Motors is testing a mysterious car from some time now which is speculated to be a stretched version of Indica (XL). This version of Indica will largely target the commercial sector similar to Indigo XL. Specific details are still unknown but it is expected to launch at least by the end of 2013.

  • Expected Launch: Mid or End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.4.5 – 5 Lakh


Mahindra Reva NXR e20

Reva-NXR.jpg

Reva was never able to capture sufficient market attention. Though the things could change once the company rolls out an entirely new Reva NXR in collaboration with Mahindra & Mahindra. This car was officially showcased on Auto Expo 2012 and production has already commenced since August 2012.

  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.5 Lakh

Hyundai i10 (Diesel)

hyundai-i10.jpg


Hyundai is already testing the heavily camouflaged new generation i10 in India (Codename: BA). Even though there are very limited hints as far as the new design and features goes, but what’s sure is that Hyundai is working on a diesel mill for this popular small car in India.

  • Expected Launch: End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.5 Lakh


Volkswagen Polo & Cross-Polo

crosspolo.jpg


Volkswagen is betting big on Polo. With spruced up 1.2 TSi and 1.5 engines, its sure going to be a driver’s delight. Plus, a DSG automatic transmission is likely as well. Gossips also indicate that a macho avatar of Polo, better known as ‘Cross-Polo, is also on the cards by End-2013.


  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.7.5+ Lakh



Mercedes Benz A-Class

Mercedes-Benz-A-Class.jpg

Mercedes recently released the B-Class in India amidst of all glitz and glamour which has received a fairly positive response. It’s not surprising to find that German carmaker is now targeting on an affordable model, the A-Class, It will be the Merc’s flagship car in India. Although the A-Class is a niche model but considering the snob value and a set of exhilarating engine options under the hood, coupled along with a lesser price tag, it is bound to attract a reasonable amount of attention from audience.

  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.17+ Lakh


Volkswagen Beetle

Volkswagen-Beetle_2012.jpg

The bug, as we all know it, is prepared for a complete makeover. Beetle will continue to amuse the onlookers with its cute looks, at the same time, it will please the occupants with much better space, equipments and performance. Thanks to the revised dimensions and new engine options which might include 1.4L Petrol and 2.0L Diesel.


  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.25 – 27 Lakh

Upcoming New Car Launches in 2013 – A Comprehensive List

Sedans

Mahindra Verito (Sub-4 Meter)

verito.jpg


Most of us are tired enough of hearing about Sub-4 Meter Verito launch, but hey wait. 2013 could finally put this anticipation to rest when a shorter version of Mahindra Verito (Logan) launches in the beginning of 2013. A sweet price tag (thanks to tax exemption) will further make this wait worth it.

  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.5 Lakh +


Tata Manza Compact Sedan

Manza.jpg


You might have already lost the count of how many versions of ‘Indigo’ sedan currently exist in the market. Now, Tata is contemplating on the launch of another Indigo variant - The Manza CS. It will be a direct competitor of New Maruti Dzire and upcoming Mahindra Verito CS.


  • Expected Launch: End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.5.5 Lakh +


Honda Amaze

amaze.jpg


Honda Brio was a runaway success in India and it doesn’t seem that its sedan avatar would be any different. Honda is readying the Amaze sedan to fight head on with the currently established rivals in the entry level sedan segment (Basically Dzire and Manza). What’s more is that it will be the first ever Honda in India to come equipped along with a Diesel engine.


  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.6 Lakh +

Tata Manza Facelift

New Manza.jpg

The Manza offers almost everything that a typical mid-sized sedan buyer demands. Yet, not many are pleased as far as its styling goes. Tata Motors is working on a Manza makeover on the lines of the Manza Hybrid which was showcased on Auto Expo 2012. This move will definitely take the Manza’s charm a step ahead.

  • Expected Launch: Mid to End 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.6 Lakh +


Chevrolet Sail Sedan

sail.jpg

General Motors has already introduced the Sail UV-A hatchback in India. Now in order to replace the Aveo, the Sail sedan is going to debut very soon. The car will be loaded modern features and offer the engine option of 1.2 Petrol and 1.3 Diesel. Particularly Diesel is expected to be the ace card which was sorely missed in the outgoing Aveo.


  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.6.5 Lakh +


Fiat Linea Facelift

2013_Fiat_Linea_Wallpaper.jpg

In spite of being one of the most desirable sedans, Fiat Linea never clicked well amongst the Indian customers. Before it becomes a history, Fiat has decided to come up with the face lifted version which was unveiled just some time ago. It remains to be seen whether a facelift can evoke interest of the audience for Linea.

  • Expected Launch: End 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.7 Lakh


Ford Fiesta Facelift

Ford-Fiesta_Sedan_2014.jpg

Ford goofed up right in the beginning when it launched the Global Fiesta in India. Later, it rectified the pricing part but that really didn’t help much. This time Ford has the right opportunity to work on the Fiesta product with the launch of a face lifted version. The car will be offered with revised design elements, including new headlamps, tail lamps, and new bumper with a wide hexagonal grille.


  • Expected Launch: End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.7.2 Lakh


Maruti Suzuki SX4 (Facelift)

2011-Suzuki-SX4-sedan.jpg

You will agree that Maruti SX4 is now fairly long in the tooth and its maker has not really done much to spruce it up ever since the launch. Don’t fret. Maruti Suzuki is now all set to roll out the SX4 facelift in the Indian market. Though there won’t be any major changes under the hood, but the redesigned avatar will sure give SX4 a new lease of life.


  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.8 Lakh



Nissan Sunny and Renault Scala A/T

2011_Nissan-Sunny-CN_02.jpg

The major partnership brands, Renault and Nissan are going to launch the automatic (CVT) transmission for their sister products, Scala and Sunny respectively. Save for the gearbox, no other changes are expected on either of the models and both might release around the same time by Mid-2013.

  • Expected Launch: Mid 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.8.8 Lakh +

Upcoming New Car Launches in 2013 – A Comprehensive List

Luxury Saloons


New Honda Civic

Honda Civic.jpg

Honda is working on a revised Civic from a while now. In fact, there were several rumors of Honda discontinuing the current Civic from India but that didn’t happen. However, considering the increasingly stiff competition in the luxury sedan segment, it would not be possible for Honda to sit quietly. Although there are still no official confirmation but New Honda Civic might debut in India in sometime.

  • Expected Launch: End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.12.8 Lakh


New Skoda Octavia

Skoda-Octavia.jpg

Skoda has revived the Octavia brand with official debut of its all new model in a more sportier form. The car has a series of engine options available and comes equipped with new features and technologies. However, it is important to note that current Octavia is sold as a Laura in India. Skoda will either replace the existing Laura with New Octavia or again continue selling both the models together as it did earlier.


  • Expected Launch: End 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs. 15 Lakh +


Skoda Superb (Facelift)

Skoda-Superb.jpg

New Superb has proved to be a jackpot model for Skoda in premium luxury sedan segment. Skoda is all set to give it a ‘family design’ touch, making Superb the first Skoda in India to receive this treatment (which will be further followed by Laura / Octavia). The changes will be limited to exterior and possibly interiors only.


  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.18 Lakh +


New Honda Accord

Honda-Accord.jpg


Due to the dwindling sales and lack of diesel engine, Honda is planning to bid adieu to Accord. But soon it could come back with a bang with bolder and charming Accord, which will offer refreshed looks. Only time will tell whether Accord can win its crown back or not but we sincerely hope that Honda thinks about adding a diesel option too in the Accord line up.

  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.19 – 20 Lakh +


Mercedes Benz E-Class (Facelift)

Mercedes-Benz-E-Class_2014.jpg

Just like other car manufacturers, Mercedes Benz is on a spree to gradually release new models which have the new family design of Mercedes. E-Class is going to be one of them which will be introduced in 2013. You will observe the main updates on the styling that includes revised headlamps, tail lamps, and the refreshed interiors, probably coupled along with the retuned engines.


  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.40 Lakh +

Upcoming New Car Launches in 2013 – A Comprehensive List

Sports Cars

Audi S6

Audi-S6_2013.jpg

Audi is leaving no stone unturned to tap the luxury and sports car market in India. In 2012, it launched the S4 which is basically a souped up A4 offering exhilarating performance. And the days are not far when the enthusiasts could lay their hands behind the steering of S6 or even S7 and S8 if the rumors are to be believed.

  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.65 – 70 Lakh

Jaguar F Type

Jaguar-F-Type.jpg

Finally one of the most charming Jaguars will hit the Indian shores in 2013. The F-Type convertible roadster will answer head on to its German competitors. This cat will be powered by a supercharged 3.0L V6 engine which is capable enough to churn out 380BHP.

  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: 1.1+ Crore

Upcoming New Car Launches in 2013

Multi Utility Vehicles

Chevrolet Enjoy

Chevrolet-Enjoy.jpg


Chevrolet has buckled up to launch its first MPV in India in collaboration with Chinese carmaker, Wuling. The Enjoy is based on Wuling CN-100; it will be powered by a 1.4L Petrol and 1.3L Multi jet Diesel Engines. It’s going to be an apt alternative to Nissan Evalia but at a much more affordable price.

  • Expected Launch: End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.6.5 Lakh +


Ashok Leyland Stile

Ashok Leyland Stile.jpg

Stile is nothing but a Nissan Evalia with ‘Ashok Leyland’ logo. AL also showcased this model at Auto Expo 2012 and plans to roll it out soon in the market, targeting specially at fleet / taxi operators. Apparently, the car will look similar to Evalia but on the inside, it could have several cost cutting bits to keep the costs in check.


  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.6.5 - 7 Lakh


Hyundai Hexa-Space

Hyundai-Hexa_Space_Concept.jpg

Looking at the rising demand of MPVs in India, Hyundai has also pulled up its socks to jump into this segment with an entirely new model known as ‘Hexa Space’. This car was displayed on Auto Expo 2012 and received a positive response all around. No specific details have been revealed about the production version yet, but if Hyundai has already done its homework correctly, Hexa Space might turn into reality by the end of 2013.


  • Expected Launch: End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.7 Lakh +

Force MPV (Mercedes Viano Based)

Mercedes-Benz-Viano.jpg

Force Motors is in full force as far as passenger car segment is concerned and it’s not surprising that the company is totally benefitting from its pact with Daimler AG (Parent brand of Mercedes Benz). Thus, Force Motors is now eyeing to bring out a Mercedes Benz Viano based MPV with the OM611 engine licensed from Daimler AG. It’s speculative to comment on pricing at the moment but if priced sensibly, it could be a good substitute of Toyota Innova.

  • Expected Launch: End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.9.5 Lakh – 10 Lakh

Upcoming New Car Launches in 2013

Sports Utility Vehicles

Force Gurkha

force-gurkha.jpg

The news of Force reviving the legendary ‘Gurkha’ brand has excited many off-roaders. The ramped up model although will carry more or less the same DNA but under the hood, it is expected to come with OM611 engine. It is a 2.2L common rail turbo diesel unit which also does duty on Force One SUV and manages to produce a peak power of 140BHP and ample torque of 320NM.


  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.5.5 Lakh

Mahindra Thar

mahindra-thar-2089.jpg

Mahindra is consistently working to make Thar a better product. Yet another evidence of same is the upcoming Thar which is rumored to be highly improved in comparison with existing model. This upgraded model is likely to offer more features, revamped interiors with stricter quality check up and probably a new engine as well.


  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.6.5 – 7 Lakh


Ford Ecosport

Ford-EcoSport_2013.jpg

If there’s any car which is highly anticipated in 2013, then it is none other than Ford Ecosport. Ford made its international debut right here in Delhi on January 2012. Ever since, it ignited a strong curiosity amongst many prospective buyers in India. However, Ford is only revealing details bit by bit and has been successful enough to maintain certain confidentiality. Being less than 4 meter in length, there are strong possibilities of Ecosport being priced more competitively than Renault Duster. We only hope that Ford doesn’t goofs up this time.

  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.7 Lakh


Maruti Suzuki XA-Alpha

2012_Suzuki_XA_Alpha.jpg

Maruti Suzuki is also working to develop a Compact SUV under four meter length, based on XA-Alpha concept car. Do note that there is no concrete information about the production model yet, but it is likely to offer 1.2 K-Series Petrol and 1.3L MJD once it is launched.


  • Expected Launch: End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.7 Lakh


Nissan Duster

renault-duster-8.jpg

Nissan Duster. Sounds odd? Of course it does. If rumors are to be believed then Nissan is preparing its own version of ‘Renault Duster’ Compact SUV. Obviously it will not be called Duster under Nissan’s brand name but it will share many things alike or perhaps all? Well, maybe.


  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.7 – 7.5 Lakh


Tata Storme & Tata Aria Automatic



Tata Motors is very serious about Storme even though they delayed the launch initially. 2013 promises to be quite eventful for Tata with some important upgrades lined up, including Storme. Grapevine indicates that Storme will soon receive high-end audio setup from Harman Kardon and a pumped up engine to produce more Torque and BHP. More importantly, Tata Motors is ready to plonk an automatic gearbox in Storme (And in Aria) to make it an overall complete package.


  • Expected Launch: Mid or End 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.13 Lakh


SangYong Korando

SsangYong-Korando_.jpg

After the launch of SsangYong Rexton, Mahindra is eyeing to bring the Korando SUV in India which will be positioned above Mahindra XUV500. It’s built on a monocoque chassis and powered by a 2.0L 273BHP turbo diesel engine, coupled along with a six speed transmission. The launch date information is still hazy but we expect the Korando to arrive either by Mid-2013 or near festive season.


  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013 or End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.15 Lakh

Ford Endeavour

Ford+Everest+2013.jpg


The blue oval has reserved some interesting models for 2013 and one of them is certainly next generation Endeavor which is based on Ford Ranger platform. According to sources, certain Ford dealers have already received training for New Endeavor back in 2012 but surprisingly Ford is hesitant to reveal any official information or pictures of upcoming Endeavour.

  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.18 Lakh

Hyundai Santa-Fe

Hyundai-Santa_Fe_2013.jpg

Santa-Fe is the only fresh product from Hyundai which is missing the famous ‘fluidic styling’ of Hyundai family design. To bridge this gap, Hyundai is going to release the next generation Santa-Fe fluidic with jazzy design and loads more features such as Start-Stop button, sunroof, GPS, leather seats to name a few. Hyundai has already begun the survey and launch isn’t far.

  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.23 Lakh


BMW X1 Facelift

BMW-X1_2013.jpg

The updated X1 is just a cosmetic makeover and BMW’s attempt to make the X1’s presence felt in the market ever since the Audi Q3 has caught the limelight. The updates will be minor and limited to exterior touch up and interior enhancements to make the X1 feel richer.

  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.25 Lakh

Honda CR-V

Honda-CR-V.jpg


The New Honda CR-V is an entirely revamped model which is expected to arrive in India in the beginning of 2013.While the car is leaps and bounds ahead of its predecessor but the downsides will continue to remain in form of expensive price tag (being a CBU product) and a missing diesel engine option.

  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.26 Lakh


Audi Q5 facelift

Audi-Q5_2013.jpg

Audi is also prepared to give Q5 a set of new looks with quick tweaks on the design here and there. There will not be revision on the performance part however. Expect the car to debut anytime in the first quarter of 2013.


  • Expected Launch: Early-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.43 Lakh

Volvo V40 Cross Country

Volvo-V40_Cross_Country.jpg

If you’re already fed up of usual Audis, BMWs and Mercs in this segment, then Volvo V40 cross country is something to watch out for. It’s stylish, unique and comes with a proven Volvo brand which is renowned in providing safest products worldwide. Considering Volvo’s pricing trend so far, it is likely to be sensibly priced as well.


  • Expected Launch: Early 2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.28 Lakh

Land Rover Freelander

Land_Rover-Freelander_2.jpg

The bold and muscular Land Rover Freelander will undergo a quick facelift job to make itself stand out from the competition. Even though the exterior enhancements will be limited, the car will be considerably revised on the interiors and come equipped along with a bunch of new features.

  • Expected Launch: Mid-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.35+ Lakh


Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep-Grand_Cherokee.jpg

In a recent official press release, Fiat has confirmed its plans of bringing the well-known ‘Jeep’ brand in India. The first two cars introduced will be the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler. The Jeeps will be sold separate from Fiat brand via independent Jeep dealerships while the spares and servicing will still occur under the Fiat umbrella.

  • Expected Launch: End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.40 – 50 Lakh


BMW X6 Facelift

BMW-X6_2013.jpg

The chunky new X6 has little but noticeable differences. It bears a more sharp and muscular stance (thanks to revised kidney grille), fresh front bumper with repositioned foglamps and LED equipped taillamps. The car is expected to arrive either in Mid or End 2013

  • Expected Launch: End-2013

  • Expected Starting Price: Rs.75 Lakh

Mercedes G63 AMG

Mercedes-Benz-G63_AMG.jpg

Mercedes’ first new car launch in India is the monstrous G63 AMG which will swap the existing G55 AMG from the market. It is powered by a 5.5L V8 Bi-Turbo producing 544BHP and 760M Torque mated with AMG Speed shift 7G Tronic transmission, which enables the G to catch speed of 100 Kmph in just 5.4 seconds.

New Snata Fe is far better than current version in India. Loved it.

I would wait for-
the new thar
Ghurkha
Ecosport
Jeep
New Civic and accord.
Personal opinion here: The new civic does not have that charm which the earlier civic had. But yes the 2013 accord is just amazing and far far better than the previous version.
Here's the link for the 2013 Accord.

Yes. RS6 is also India bound to stand against New M5. The cars I’m quite eager about are Tata Nano Upgrade, New Manza, Ford Ecosport, New Octavia and Volvo V40.

Drive Safe,
