Delhi : One of the busiest areas of the domestic auto industry is the sub-Rs 10 lakh price range. One of the main factors that contribute to large sales volumes is a low price point that appeals to both potential and current automobile purchasers. Automobile makers are continuously releasing new models while also modernising older ones, banking on this. So let's have a look at the future vehicles that will debut in India for less than Rs. 10 lakh.

1. Hyundai Exter

The future Exter SUV's rear profile was just made public by Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL), providing a complete look at the vehicle's design. The mini SUV is already being reserved for a nominal sum of Rs. 11,000 ahead of its market debut, which is slated on July 10. There will be a total of 5 trim levels for the four-wheeler, namely EX, S, SX, SX(O), and SX(O) Connect.

It will be powered by the 1.2 litre Kappa engine, which will have both petrol and CNG fuel choices, and is based on the same platform as the Grand i10 Nios. The Grand i10 Nios and Aura's power output and gearbox choices will be comparable. The Tata Punch and Citroen C3's direct competitors, the Exter, will likely start at about Rs. 6 lakh (ex-showroom).

2. Tata Nexon Facelift

The Nexon Facelift is scheduled to release in August 2023, with a starting price of around Rs. 8 lakh (ex-showroom) and top-end trims costing well over Rs. 10 lakh. This Nexon SUV facelift will be the second for the vehicle, which debuted in 2017. The upgraded model will have significant design modifications that will align it with the Curvv ICE concept shown at the 2023 Auto Expo.

The interior of the vehicle will include an entirely new layout, the newest 10.25-inch infotainment system, a fully digital instrument panel, and a two-spoke steering wheel. In addition, we anticipate the revised SUV to come with the new 1.2-liter tGDi petrol engine, which will have a maximum output of 125 horsepower and 225 Nm.

3. Maruti Suzuki New-Gen Swift and Dzire

Swift, along with its sedan brother Dzire, is one of the best-selling items in the Rs. 10 lakh price range and will soon receive a new generation model. The pair will have several alterations to the external and interior designs, as well as a flurry of new feature improvements, when they are introduced to the market in the middle of 2024. 

The new 1.2-liter powerful hybrid petrol engine, with a stated fuel efficiency of over 35 kmpl, will be the focal point. Additionally, the present petrol and CNG choices will be kept in place.

4. Tata Punch CNG

The Altroz CNG was just introduced by Tata Motors in the Indian market. The debut of Punch CNG will come after it in the upcoming months. The four-wheeler will be equipped with the most recent dual-cylinder technology and two 30-liter tanks that are positioned beneath the boot floor to maximise the amount of storage space in the boot. The vehicle will be propelled by a 1.2-liter, 3-cylinder petrol engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, generating a maximum torque of 97 Nm and 77 horsepower.

5. Toyota's Coupe SUV Based on the Maruti Suzuki Fronx

The coupe SUV built on the Fronx platform will be the next new thing to come out of the Maruti Suzuki-Toyota JV. Although the crossover shares the same underpinnings and powertrain as the Fronx, a significant design change will be made to distinguish it apart. The Toyota crossover could use the international-spec Yaris Cross's look. We may anticipate the Toyota competitor to make its appearance in the second half of 2023 as the Fronx has already been released. The Coupe SUV's price will be familiar to the Fronx and is anticipated to be called the "Taisor."

6. Kia Sonet Facelift

Recently, the Sonet Facelift was seen doing testing abroad, and its India debut is anticipated by early 2024. Although the prototype was tightly concealed, several external alterations, including new headlights, a new front grille, fog lamp housing, and more, have been verified. In terms of functionality, the Sonet will continue to be a tech-heavy option in the market, and the upgraded model will likely include some new capabilities. The 1.2-liter NA petrol, 1.5-liter CRDi diesel and 1.0-liter tGDi petrol engines that power the powertrain will continue to operate.

7. 2024 New-Gen Honda Amaze

A new version of Honda's well-liked small car will be released soon. The four-wheeler, scheduled for release in 2024, will be built on a modernised version of the current PF2 platform. The 1.2-litre i-VTEC engine with 90 horsepower and 110 Nm of maximum torque would be present under the hood of the vehicle. The design language will be consistent with the brand's most recent products, such as the most recent City and Accord models marketed in other countries. ADAS will also be available for the 2024 New-Gen Amaze.

8. Mahindra XUV300 Facelift

The Mahindra XUV300 facelift test mule, which will make its debut in 2024, was recently spotted for the first time. The upgraded model, code-named S220, will have several interior and exterior improvements, including the SUV's appearance, but its technical components will not alter. In addition, new features for the XUV300 facelift are anticipated, including a modernised infotainment system with linked car technology, a digital instrument cluster, ventilated seats, a wireless charger, and more.

9. Toyota Rumion (Maruti Suzuki Ertiga Based MPV)

The next car under the Maruti-Toyota JV to be badge-engineered is an MPV based on the Ertiga that is most likely going to be dubbed Rumion. The powertrain options will be the same as the Ertiga and CNG will also be available as an option, with sufficient alterations to the exterior design and modest adjustments to the inside upholstery. It will make its debut in India by the second half of 2023, barring unforeseen circumstances.
