In this article, we bring you the four most anticipated upcoming cars which are all set for their launch before monsoon in India. All these cars are scheduled for their launch in this month and the upcoming month, July. Let's take a look.
2014 Ford Fiesta Facelift
Ford has recently unveiled the face-lifted version of their new Fiesta which gets significant interior and exterior changes which makes it look much aggressive and stylish than before. The new Fiesta will only be available with a diesel engine and for now there is no sign of automatic transmission and petrol engines.
Unlike before, new Fiesta will only be offered in three variants namely Ambiente, Trend and Titanium. All these variants come equipped with the much familiar 1.5L TDCI diesel engine producing a power and torque output of 90bhp and 204Nm respectively mated with a five speed manual gearbox. Driver airbag, ABS with EBD come as standard features in the new Fiesta while the top variant also gets Ford Sync system with Emergency Assist, new alloy wheels, push button start, rear parking sensors, cruise control and many more. Expect aggressive pricing for this one.
2014 Nissan Sunny Facelift
Updated Nissan Sunny will soon follow Fiesta in our market as it will be launched early next month. Sunny will be a direct competitor to Fiesta and other mid size sedans.
Technically, this new Sunny will be similar to previous gen which means it will be available with familiar 1.5L petrol engine with optional CVT transmission and 1.5L diesel unit which now comes with improved fuel efficiency thanks to enhanced aerodynamics and remapped ECU. The added chrome detailing and new interior theme with new audio system differentiates this new car from its predecessor and adds the much needed sporty and premium touch to this car.
In the mid of July, we will witness the entry of Honda's first ever MPV, Mobilio in our market. This car will lock horns with the current segment ruler, Maruti Ertiga and hence is expected to be placed below Ertiga. Honda Mobilio shares its platform with its younger siblings, Brio and Amaze.
The face of the car is quite similar to its siblings although as you move towards back, things keep on changing. The interiors also have been straight away taken from Brio and Amaze. As far as powertrains are concerned, Mobilio will share its 1.5L petrol and diesel units with Honda sedan, City.
Audi A3 sedan
Be ready for the most affordable Audi sedan ever launched in India. A3 will be company's first car which will take on luxurious hatch competitors such as Mercedes A and B Class and BMW 1-series in sedan form.
This sedan will have styling cues similar to its elder sibling, A4 and will have all the key qualities of being a real Audi sedan. As Speculated, Audi will plant two different engines in A3; one each of petrol and diesel. There will be a 1.8L petrol and 2.0L diesel engine in A3 both of which will be mated with Audi's S-Tronic dual clutch transmission.
New VW Polo
You can expect the new Polo in India at anytime now. The cosmetic changes made to new Polo may not surprise you but surely adds fresh feel to the car. The car is likely to retain its 1.2L three cylinder and Turbo charged TSI petrol engines equipped with different gearboxes.
