The year 2018 has seen the launch of many new and facelifted cars in India. Today, we present you with five sure head turners launched this year
Our four-wheel companions have no longer remained just the things for taking us and our luggage from one point to the other. Instead, the better our friend will look on the road, more are the chances we will be bringing it home from the showroom.
This year, starting from the Auto Expo in February, the Indian automobile industry has witnessed numerous new cars and also some facelifts launches. Read on to know which are the five featuring some serious looks.
1. Maruti Suzuki Swift
First up, we have the new Swift. Honestly speaking, I was quite jealous when the new Swift was launched in the European and other global markets before India. I mean, we had given so much love to the second generation Swift that we deserved to get the new one before anyone else, didn’t we? Anyway, better late than never. We finally have the third-gen Swift among us.
And boy it looks sexy! It just has got it. I mean the looks. There are a lot of curves, and curves are good, right? From some angles, it appears to be inspired from the Mini Cooper, but that’s my opinion. The projector headlamps with LED DRLs flanking the new grille, new alloy wheels, and the stylish LED tail lamps all give the Swift that killer look one would die for. Starting at ₹ 4.99 Lakhs*, the new Maruti Suzuki Swift will surely attract the crowd everywhere.
2. New-Gen Honda Amaze
The first generation of the Honda Amaze changed the way Indians approached sedans. One of the most popular and sought-after automobiles in the country, Amaze was without a doubt due for an overhaul with the design starting to look dated. From 2013 until this year, the Amaze indeed amazed a lot of people out there, however, the latest iteration of the sedan is nothing short of a much bigger delight.
Some would say that the front looks boxy, but bear no misconception it looks flamboyant. The new-gen Amaze boasts a no-nonsense body structure. The bold use of chrome on the front grille, chunky headlamps, and the wrap-around style taillights provide the Amaze with a muscular appearance. Furthermore, the swirling alloy wheels add more premium-ness to the sedan. With a base price of ₹ 5.81 Lakhs*, the 2018 Honda Amaze is the sedan you want to add to your arsenal.
3. New Hyundai Santro
Didn’t we all wait for the iconic hatchback to make a comeback? And the Santro has just done that. Adding to the joy, the new compact hatch looks as fresh as it could’ve looked. The looks might not be too extravagant but are enough for turning the heads around.
For some though, the Santro badging should be more than enough to stop the new customers and have a chat about the latest car from the South Korean stable. The upswept headlamps, sleek creases throughout and the huge grille on the front bumper make sure that the new Santro has something in unique and appealing. At just ₹ 3.9 Lakhs*, you can bring home the newest kid in the town.
4. Hyundai Creta Facelift
“If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it”. The Hyundai Creta has been selling like hotcakes since its arrival in 2015. The compact 5-seater SUV featured a husky appearance even before and now in the face-lifted avatar, the Creta has certainly hammered the last final nail in the competitors’ coffin. The face-lifted Hyundai Creta boasts a new and bigger grille up front with chrome outlines, a new lower grille with a bold embellishment and fog lamps with newer housings.
At the rear, the wrap-around tail lamps continue to feature on the compact SUV. With the subtle yet significant updates, which also include the dual-tone alloys, the new Hyundai Creta can be yours from ₹ 9.5 Lakhs* and will make its presence felt on every road it travels on.
5. Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Facelift
Two Maruti Suzuki cars in the list prove that the manufacturer is surely doing something right. First launched in the year 2014, our in-house sedan has been a tremendous success for Maruti Suzuki. With the revised Ciaz already in the showrooms, the sales charts are only expected to rise. The price of ₹ 8.19 Lakhs* might look steep to some but the Ciaz has got it what it takes to be there among the best in class.
The front fascia includes a new grille and bumper and the rear also get redesigned taillights and a fresh bumper. The side-view, however, looks more or less the same on the face-lifted Ciaz. If you’re out in the market for a fresh yet a proven contender, you need to consider the new Maruti Suzuki Ciaz as well.
