Watch out for these new cars being launched n September
Honda's all-new midsize SUV, the Elevate will rival Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. Powered by a 1.5-liter engine generating 121 PS power and 145 Nm torque, the Elevate offers a choice between a 6-speed manual and a CVT gearbox.
The Elevate will have only a single option on launch - this is the same engine that does duty in the Honda City sedan. The Elevate's USPs are the Honda brand name, reliability, bold looks and comfort. But it is not as feature-rich as its rivals.
Citroen is preparing to launch its latest creation, the Citroen C3 Aircross in India, a mid-size SUV featuring the brand's distinct design and drawing inspiration from its hatchback siblings, the C3 and eC3.
Powered by a 1.2-liter turbo-petrol engine, the C3 Aircross delivers 110hp and 190 Nm of torque through a six-speed manual transmission. CarToq drove the C3 Aircross and we can confidently say that this is a fun-to-drive car. However, its not as feature-rich as its rivals.
Toyota is set to introduce the Urban Cruiser Taisor, a sub-4-meter SUV that is actually a rebadged Maruti Fronx. Like the Toyota Rumion or Hyryder based on their Maruti counterparts, the Taisor is based on Fronx.
Expect design changes in the front and back, compared to the Fronx. Engine options: 1.0-liter BoosterJet and a 1.2-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine, with manual and automatic transmission choices.
Tata Motors is set to unveil the facelifted version of its popular sub-compact SUV, the Nexon, next month with significant updates to its design and features. The changes will help the Tata Nexon fight back against the Maruti Fronx.
Design changes will include split headlamps, new alloy wheels, and upgraded interior with a touchscreen steering wheel. A revised 1.2-liter turbopetrol engine, the existing 1.5-liter diesel, and a new 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission will be introduced.
