The Indian automotive landscape will welcome several novel passenger cars during the 2024 calendar year. In this article, we’ll talk about the most anticipated car launches in 2024.
1. Tata Curvv
The Tata Curvv is slated for its debut, initially as an EV in the first half of 2024. It will offer a claimed driving range surpassing 500 km. Subsequently, the Internal Combustion Engine version is set to hit the market, positioning itself as a formidable competitor against midsize SUVs like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder, and others. The Curvv will come equipped with a cutting-edge 1.5L TGDI petrol engine that aims to make a significant impact in the SUV segment.
2. Hyundai Creta Facelift
In the early months of 2024, Hyundai is set to unveil the revamped Creta. It is characterized by a myriad of both interior and exterior revisions. This transformation is rooted in the latest Sensuous Sportiness styling language. The facelifted Creta promises a completely overhauled interior, complemented by an upgraded features list. Notably, a new 1.5L turbo petrol engine, producing 160 PS and 253 Nm will be introduced to enrich the lineup.
3. New-Gen Maruti Suzuki Swift & Dzire
As the leading car producer in the country, Maruti Suzuki is gearing up to introduce the new generation Swift and Dzire in the upcoming year. Both models are set to undergo evolutionary exterior changes as hinted by the Swift concept unveiled at the Japan Mobility Show 2023. These vehicles will be powered by a state-of-the-art 1.2L Z series three-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol engine, aligning with the brand’s commitment to innovation and efficiency.
4. Mahindra XUV300 Facelift & 5-Door Thar
Mahindra & Mahindra is strategically planning to unveil at least five entirely new SUVs in the Indian market next year. The spotlight, however, will undoubtedly be on the facelifted XUV300 and the five-door Thar. Both SUVs, having already undergone testing are slated for arrival in the first half of 2024. The revamped XUV300 will showcase a fresh exterior, drawing inspiration from the XUV700, while the elongated wheelbase Thar promises increased practicality and spaciousness compared to its three-door version.
5. Kia Sonet Facelift
Aligned with the intensifying competition in the compact SUV segment, Kia plans to launch the enhanced Sonet early in the upcoming year. Diverging significantly from the recently leaked China-spec model, the Sonet facelift will showcase substantial cosmetic alterations and interior refinements. While undergoing these changes, the 1.2L NA petrol, 1.0L turbo petrol, and 1.5L turbo diesel engines will retain their positions in the powertrain options.
