Here we have covered the 7 all-new highly anticipated passenger cars that will hit showrooms in 2024 in India
The 2024 calendar year is shaping up to be another big draw as automobile manufacturers are lining up new launches and here we have covered the most anticipated ones:
1. Hyundai Creta Facelift:
The facelifted Hyundai Creta is heading to showrooms in early 2024 and it will get a slew of revisions inside and out. The exterior will stick with the latest Sensuous Sportiness design philosophy followed by the brand globally while the interior will be a thorough makeover compared to the existing model. It will also get a brand new 1.5L turbo petrol engine producing 160 PS and 253 Nm, paired with a six-speed iMT or a seven-speed DCT.
2. Kia Sonet Facelift:
The updated Kia Sonet will step in to fight firmly against the recently facelifted Nexon and others in the highly competitive compact SUV segment. It will come with a redesigned front and rear while the interior will also feature new equipment and technologies. The existing 1.0L turbo petrol, 1.2L NA petrol and 1.5L diesel engines will likely stay put.
3. Tata Curvv:
Tata Motors already showcased two conceptual versions of the Curvv – one at the 2023 Auto Expo and the other in the previous year. It will be available in EV and ICE guises and the former will arrive first in the first half of next year with a claimed driving range of more than 500 km on a single charge. The IC-engined avatar will take on five-seater midsize SUVs like Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
4. New-Gen Maruti Suzuki Swift & Dzire:
The Swift concept unveiled at the Japan Mobility Show 2023 will give rise to a production model in India in H2 2024 while its sedan sibling, the Dzire, will also get similar updates next year. Both will feature notable exterior and interior revisions while a new hybrid engine has long been in the rumour mill. The existing 1.2L K-series NA petrol unit could be replaced by a new Z-series engine.
5. Mahindra XUV300 Facelift & 5-Door Thar:
The facelifted Mahindra XUV300 will take plenty of inspiration from the BE range and XUV700 as far as the exterior is concerned while the cabin will be more upmarket with the inclusion of new features and tech such as a larger touchscreen and new instrument console. The 1.2L petrol and 1.5L diesel engines will be carried over and new AT will likely be introduced as well.
