Upcoming Midsize SUVs In 2023-24 – See Details
The growing demand for SUVs has spurred automakers to introduce a slew of new models in the nation. We have seen Maruti Suzuki and Toyota enter the midsize SUV market in 2022, while VW and Skoda have released the Taigun and Kushaq in the nation, respectively. Multiple new midsize SUVs will be available in our market in 2023 and 2024 throughout the following few years.
New Kia Seltos
Kia, a Korean carmaker, plans to debut the redesigned Seltos in the nation by mid-2023. The facelifted Kia Seltos 2023 has already been sighted testing on Indian roads. It’s already available in a few international areas. The new model will include a revised look and an enhanced interior, as well as a new turbo petrol engine. It will have a completely new front fascia with a reworked grille and new headlamps. The SUV’s interior will be updated with new upholstery, a larger infotainment screen, and a redesigned instrument console. It will also have ADAS technology such as adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, lane departure assist, and other features. It will also have a new 158bhp, 1.5-litre 4-cylinder turbo petrol engine rather than a new 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine.
In 2024, Hyundai will introduce the new Creta facelift in the nation. It will include new design elements and an improved interior. The new Tucson will influence the front design, which will have a new parametric grille, rectangular headlights with LED DRLs, and a thinner and broader air intake. The SUV receives sharper taillights, a slightly altered trunk lid, and a redesigned bumper at the back. The SUV will also be outfitted with ADAS, including automated emergency braking with front collision avoidance, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and rear cross traffic collision avoidance help. The SUV will also get a new 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 158bhp and 260Nm of torque. It will be offered with 6-speed manual and 7-speed DCT transmissions. A 115bhp, 1.5L normally aspirated petrol engine and a 115bhp, 1.5L turbo diesel engine will also be available.
Honda has revealed intentions to introduce a brand-new midsize SUV in the nation by the middle of 2023. The new model is set to make its global premiere in the spring of 2023, between April and May. It will compete with vehicles such as the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Astor, Maruti Grand Vitara, VW Taigun, and Toyota Hyryder. The new car will borrow stylistic ideas from larger Honda SUVs such as the new CR-V and HR-V. It will feature a coupe-like roofline, as seen on the new-generation HR-V.
The new HR-V will use the same all-electronic design and screen technology as the new Accord and CR-V. A new 10.2-inch digital driving display and a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system are expected. The SUV is also expected to have a camera-based ADAS system with features like as collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and high-beam assist. It will be powered by a 1.5-liter i-VTEC petrol engine and a 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle engine with e:HEV hybrid technology and two electric motors. The hybrid version will have a single fixed-gear ratio and three drive modes: engine, electric vehicle, and hybrid.
New Renault Duster
Renault has indicated that the new Duster SUV would be available in our market between 2024 and 2025. The SUV will be built on the substantially localised CMF-B platform, which will also serve as the foundation for Nissan’s new 7-seater SUV for India. The new Duster will be styled similarly to the Dacia Bigster concept, which will go into production in 2024-25. The new model will be larger and more spacious within the cabin. It will also have modern amenities like as a larger touchscreen infotainment panel, wireless phone charging, a digital driver display, a sunroof, and more. The new Duster might be equipped with a 1.2L turbocharged petrol engine with 48V hybrid technology. The SUV might potentially have a 1.3L turbocharged petrol engine. The SUV will also be equipped with AWD.
The Tata Curvv
At the 2023 Auto Expo, Tata Motors displayed the Curvv SUV Coupe concept with a petrol engine option. It is built on Tata’s new GEN 2 platform, which is essentially a substantially modified version of the ALFA platform. The new vehicle will be available with both gasoline and electric powertrains. The production-ready model will be available in 2024, according to the business. It will be driven by a new 1.2L 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 125PS at 5,000rpm and 225Nm peak torque between 1700-3500rpm. It is likely to be available with both a 6-speed manual and a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
