3. Honda Elevate:

The Honda Elevate made its market debut early last month and its prices will be revealed later next month or in September 2023. It will be retailed in a total of four variants and will derive power from a 1.5L NA four-cylinder VTEC petrol engine developing 121 PS and 145 Nm. It will be mated to a six-speed MT or a CVT. Based on the same architecture as the fifth-gen City, it will have a practical and spacious cabin but no hybrid engine will be available.

4. Citroen C3 Aircross:

The Citroen C3 Aircross will be sold in five- and seven-seater configurations and is equipped with a 1.2L three-cylinder turbo petrol engine, connected to a six-speed manual transmission only. The midsize SUV is underpinned by the CMP platform as the C3 hatchback and it will likely be priced competitively in India, judging by the cost-cutting measures made. Price announcement likely next month.
