The Toyota Innova Hycross, which is based on a new monocoque chassis, will have its prices announced in India in January 2023. Undoubtedly, the midsize market has been expanding rapidly in recent years. In response, auto brands are breaking new ground to offer consumers novel products. The MPV market will experience a boom in the coming year or two, and here we have discussed the five upcoming premium MPVs that will serve as the catalyst for this boom:
1. Toyota Innova Hycross:
The Innova Hycross will make its global debut on November 21 and four days later, the premium MPV will be unveiled in India. It is based on the modular TNGA-C platform and will be powered by a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 2.0-litre strong hybrid petrol engine. The prices will likely be announced at the 2023 Auto Expo in January before the commencement of deliveries in the same month.
2. Maruti Suzuki C-MPV:
In the first half of the following year, Maruti Suzuki is anticipated to release a C-segment MPV based on the upcoming Toyota Innova Hycross. The C-MPV will have a unique exterior similar to the Grand Vitara and Hyryder, but the chassis and interior components will be shared with the Innova Hycross. Positioned above the XL6, it will only be sold through Nexa dealerships.
3. New-Gen Kia Carnival:
The new generation Carnival is anticipated to debut at the 2023 Auto Show before going on sale. Customers have responded favourably to the high-end MPV, and a completely updated model is already available worldwide. The existing 2.2-liter diesel engine could be kept, and exterior and interior changes could resemble those seen on international markets.

4. Hyundai 7-Seater MPV:
Kia, Hyundai’s sister brand, has been doing well with the Carens since its market debut earlier this year. Hyundai may soon enter the C-MPV market with a seven-seater MPV after seeing the potential and joining automakers like Maruti Suzuki and Toyota in 2023. We do not yet know whether it is based on the Stargazer or not.
5. Mahindra Bolero Neo Plus:
The Bolero Neo Plus could be unveiled in India in the upcoming months and could be powered by a 2.2-liter four-pot turbo diesel engine that can produce up to 120 PS in power mode and 95 PS in economy mode. It might be connected to either an automatic or manual transmission. The Neo Plus could come in seven- and eight-seater configurations and is more of an MUV than an MPV.
