A number of automakers are currently working on introducing their new offerings to the Indian market as the country’s auto market is now reviving itself following the COVID-19 pandemic. Early in 2023, up to 6 new large SUVs and MPVs will be introduced to the market. Here is everything you need to know about them.
1. Hyundai Creta Facelift
The Hyundai Creta facelift is anticipated to debut in the first half of 2023 and will come with a long list of improvements, including new features, updated interior design, and improved safety. The Creta is anticipated to be the second Hyundai vehicle in India to be offered with LEVEL 2 ADAS safety technology, though the available powertrain options will remain the same.
2. Tata Harrier Facelift
The Tata Harrier hasn’t received a significant update since it made its Indian debut all that time ago. According to numerous reports, the new Harrier facelift will probably be unveiled at the 2023 Auto Expo and will feature a number of updates, including updated styling and new powertrain choices.
3. Maruti Baleno Cross
At the Auto Expo 2023, the Maruti Baleno Cross, internally known as the YTB, is most likely to make its Indian debut. The entry-level compact SUVs in the nation will be challenged by the YTB cross, which will be built on the same platform as the Baleno. The 1.0L BoosterJet turbo petrol engine is also anticipated to be available in this new SUV from the Indian automaker.
4. Toyota Innova Cross
One of the most talked-about MPVs in the nation right now, the new Toyota Innova Hycross will offer customers new hybrid powertrain options and a new monocoque platform. It will also provide a cabin that is more cosy and useful. Toyota hasn’t provided any additional information about the Innova Hycross’s release, but we anticipate it will debut in India the following month.
5. Citroen Midsize SUV
Citroen is currently working on launching a number of new offerings for the Indian market after introducing the new C3 hatchback in the nation. These also include a brand-new midsize SUV to compete with models like the MG Astor and the Hyundai Creta. This new midsize SUV will be based on the same C-Cubed programme, though the manufacturer hasn’t released any official information. It’s likely to be the C3 Aircross, and its release is anticipated for early 2023.
6. New Gen Kia Carnival
The latest Kia Carnival, which has not yet been released in India, offers updated styling, better safety, and higher levels of interior comfort. It is anticipated that the Korean automaker will soon release this high-end MPV in the nation. The Carnival is currently the most expensive Kia vehicle available for purchase in India, but it may debut in the sub-45 lakh price range the following year.
