Maruti Suzuki unveiled the Ertiga MPV at the 11th Delhi Auto Expo and the company will launch it in April. The Ertiga kicks start a new compact MPV segment and will compete with the Chevrolet’s production version of the MPV concept and Mahindra’s mini Xylo that did not make appearance at the auto show.
Tata unveiled the new Safari Storme at the Auto Expo 2012. The Storme is a restyled Safari but while the looks haven’t changed radically, the underpinnings borrowed from Aria are completely different. That should make Storme a better handling and more refined machine.
Hyundai pointed to its future with Hexa Space unveiling at Auto Expo, a multi utility vehicle that comes without any B-pillar—the front door opens conventionally while the rear one slides back. The SUV-centric design suggests an attempt at marrying the appeal of a sporty car with a functionality of an MUV.
Maruti kicked off the Auto Expo by showcasing its small SUV codenamed XA Alpha. The sub-4 meter SUV will likely be powered by K-Series petrol and multijet diesel engines both of which combined will help lower sticker price and running costs.
