The Citroen C3 Aircross debuted a few months ago and it will be sold in five- and seven-seater guises upon launch in the coming months. The midsize SUV is based on the CMP platform as its compact hatchback sibling, the C3. It will be equipped with the familiar 1.2L three-cylinder turbo petrol engine, paired only with a six-speed manual transmission.

3. Tata Safari Facelift:

The facelifted Tata Safari is expected to hit showrooms before the end of this calendar year. It will take plenty of design inspiration from the Harrier EV concept, which was showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo. As for the performance, a new 1.5L turbo DI petrol engine will more likely be introduced, mated to a six-speed manual or an automatic transmission.

4. Toyota MPV (Rebadged Ertiga):

Reports suggest that Toyota will launch a badge-engineered version of the Ertiga in India in the coming months. Bear in mind, Toyota already sells the Rumion, the badge swapped Ertiga, in the international markets. But, the India-spec version will have notable exterior differences and it will be powered by the 1.5L four-cylinder K15C mild-hybrid petrol engine.

5. Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus:

It could go on sale later this year and will likely be available in seven- and nine-seater layouts. It will feature a 2.2L diesel engine kicking out 130 PS and 300 Nm. It is more of a facelifted take on the TUV300 Plus.
