5 Big SUV launches ahead: Maruti, Honda, Kia and more
Delhi : New SUVs will be released in the Indian market during the next three months by companies like Maruti Suzuki, Honda, Kia, and Mercedes-Benz.
Maruti Suzuki Fronx
With the Jimny, the Fronx small SUV coupe made its debut at the 2023 Auto Expo in January. It will only be offered through Nexa premium retailers and come with a 1.2L NA or 1.0L turbo petrol engine as an option. It will be loaded with features and run on the same Heartect platform as the Baleno.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny
Almost 40,000 units have been reserved for the Maruti Suzuki Fronx and Jimny together. The lifestyle off-road Vehicle will go on sale in May, and serial manufacturing is anticipated to start the following month. The 1.5L four-cylinder K15B petrol engine powers the five-door, India-specific Jimny, which is larger than the international variant. It will be coupled with a four-speed torque converter AT or a five-speed manual transmission (MT), sending power to all four wheels as standard.
Honda Midsize SUV
Midway through 2023, the Honda midsize SUV will make its world debut before coming on sale in India around the holiday season.
It uses the well-known 1.5L NA and 1.5L strong hybrid petrol engines and is built on the same basis as the fifth-generation City. It will probably have a new electronic design and is largely influenced by the global HR-V and WR-V.
2023 Kia Seltos Facelift
By the middle of this year, the Kia Seltos is anticipated to get a makeover and receive numerous inside and exterior improvements. While the cabin receives new features and technologies, including ADAS, the front fascia will be updated. A new 1.5L petrol turbocharged engine with 160 Hp and 253 Nm will power it.
New Mercedes-Benz GLC
With updated exterior and interior design, the next-generation Mercedes-Benz GLC will have greater dimensions than the outgoing model. A 12.3-inch digital console, an 11.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a redesigned HUD, and other premium amenities will be included in the feature list. Probably a 2.0L gasoline and 2.0L diesel engine with mild hybrid technology will power it. It will go on market around the middle of 2023.
