Indian automakers are preparing a number of new models for release in anticipation of a eventful 2024. As they compete to maintain their competitive edge in the market, each of these cars will introduce new features and technological advancements. Both internal combustion engines and electric powertrains will be introduced in the near future, with a combination of facelifts and models from entirely new generations.

There is a long list of vehicles that are expected to be on the road in 2024. This time, the attention is on the 5-seater market, although we have already discussed the upcoming 7-seater automobiles in India. Hyundai, Maruti Suzuki, Kia, Tata, and Mahindra, all prominent players in the Indian automotive sector, are preparing for big launches in this market.

Revamped Creta by Hyundai:

The Hyundai Creta Facelift, which will be unveiled on January 16, 2024, is in the lead. Some interesting parts have emerged throughout testing, despite being well camouflaged. It is anticipated to sport new tail lights, alloy wheels, a larger infotainment system, a redesigned digital instrument cluster, and an abundance of safety technologies, such as a Level 2 ADAS suite and a 360-degree surround camera, all of which are derived from the Kia Seltos. It keeps the same array of 1.5-liter petrol, 1.5-liter turbo petrol, and 1.5-liter diesel engines under the hood, along with comparable gearbox choices.

Kia’s Improved Sonet:

Reservations for the just-unveiled Kia Sonet facelift, which made its premiere in India on December 14, 2023, will be accepted starting on December 20. January 2024 is the official launch date, and the price range is anticipated to be between Rs. 8.00 and Rs. 15.00 lakh. The Sonet has been redesigned with larger LED DRLs, redesigned LED headlamps, a changed grille, and halogen fog lamps as part of its improved exterior design. Updates to the inside include Level 1 ADAS, voice control, climate control, a 10.25-inch infotainment system, and a new completely digital instrument cluster.

New Variants of Tata’s Curvv: ICE and EV

The new Curvv EV, which Tata Motors is adding to its number of electric vehicles, will go into production in April and have prices revealed in June 2024. Tata intends to release the Curvv ICE version before its electric equivalent.

Anticipate noteworthy attributes including an ADAS, dual-zone climate control, a central console, a two-spoke steering wheel, 360-degree surround cameras, and a floating touchscreen infotainment system. They strive for a 5-star NCAP crash test rating in terms of safety. The Curvv EV is anticipated to have a range of more than 500 km on a single charge; information about its battery pack and electric motor are still pending. The Curvv ICE will utilize the Nexon’s engine lineup.

The New Mahindra XUV300:

Mahindra is probably going to release the updated XUV300 in February 2024. The updated vehicle, which takes cues from the XUV700, will feature both aesthetic and interior changes. Its anticipated features include a segment-first panoramic sunroof, a revised tailgate, a new headlight assembly, a two-part front grille, and a 10.25-inch infotainment system. The available engine options are still 1.2-liter turbo petrol, 1.2-liter direct injection turbo petrol, and 1.5-liter diesel engines with 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearboxes.

Maruti Suzuki Swift Next Generation:

An improved appeal is promised by the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Swift, a popular hatchback in the nation. It was recently unveiled in Tokyo at the Japan Mobility Show 2023, and its introduction in India is planned for mid-2024. Test mules have shown off new outward features like a sharper bumper, revamped front grille, and clamshell bonnet. The interiors may also be changed, with a 9-inch touchscreen screen that supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. ADAS and six airbags will be among the safety features. Better fuel economy will be available with the new Z-Series 1.2-liter NA 3-cylinder petrol engine that powers the new Swift.
