June is shaping up to be an exciting month for car enthusiasts, with several highly anticipated models set to hit the market. If you want to know which models will be arriving this month, you’ve come to the right place! We will delve into the details of the four forthcoming cars that are generating considerable buzz in the country at the moment. So, without any further ado, here is the list of all the cars.
First off, the launches lined up for the month of June will be kicked off by the mid-size SUV Elevate from Honda Cars India, a Japanese multinational automaker. This SUV, which rivals the Creta, is set to make its official debut on June 6. It boasts an upright stance and a bold yet classy exterior. The proportions of the SUV have been crafted with Indian buyers in mind. Test mules spotted suggest that it will be a promising new model from the brand.
According to numerous reports, the Honda Elevate will be offered with a 1.5-liter petrol engine borrowed from the Honda City mid-size sedan. This engine produces 150 Nm of torque and 121 PS of maximum power. However, it has been reported that Honda may adjust the power characteristics to better suit the SUV form factor. The SUV will likely have the same CVT or 6-speed manual transmission options as the Honda City, depending on the variant. Safety features such as Honda’s LaneWatch system, twin airbags, ABS with EBD, and a rearview camera will be included. The interior of the SUV will come equipped with modern tech as well.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny five door
The newest ladder-on-frame SUV from Maruti Suzuki, the Jimny, is one of the most anticipated models in the country. This SUV will be launched on June 7. This purpose-built off-roader features a 1.5-liter four-cylinder naturally-aspirated K15B petrol engine, producing a maximum power output of 105 PS and a maximum torque output of 138 Nm. The engine comes with two transmission choices: a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic.
The India-spec Jimny will come with Suzuki’s famed AllGrip four-wheel-drive system, which includes a manual transfer case and a low-range gearbox. The new Maruti Suzuki Jimny is expected to be priced between Rs 10-14 lakh (ex-showroom, India) and will serve as a more compact and affordable alternative to off-roaders like the Mahindra Thar and the Force Gurkha.
Volkswagen Virtus GT Plus MT
The German automotive giant Volkswagen is also getting ready to launch the new Virtus GT Plus MT, a performance-oriented sedan that combines its punchy TSI engine with a manual transmission. This forthcoming mid-size sedan will be powered by the same 1.5L TSI EVO engine, which produces 150 PS of power and 250 Nm of torque. The new addition to this powerplant will be the manual transmission. This new sedan will be offered with a brand-new “Deep Black Pearl” shade.
The Virtus GT Plus MT is a highly anticipated model that will rival the likes of the Honda City, new Hyundai Verna, its cousin sibling Skoda Slavia, and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. It is currently one of the most popular performance-oriented sedans in the market. Currently, the Virtus GT Plus DSG is priced at Rs 18.57 Lakh (ex-showroom).
Volkswagen Taigun GT Plus MT, Sport, Trail

The company will be expanding the Taigun lineup with the introduction of three exciting variants: Sport, Trail, and GT Plus MT. First off will be the Taigun GT Plus MT, which will be the same as the outgoing Taigun GT TSI but will come with a manual transmission like the Virtus GT Plus MT. The next variant will be the Taigun Sport, featuring a Wild Cherry Red exterior paint with ‘Sport’ body decals. This new limited edition model will include a set of 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, blacked-out ORVMs with red accents, black trunk sill garnish, chrome inserts on the grille, and silver-painted front and rear diffusers.
