Few upcoming auto launches in the SUV segment – the New Indian Express
Built on Citroën’s common modular platform, the C3 will be manufactured at the company’s plant in India and is also expected to be exported to global markets from here. Style wise, it borrows a lot from its big brother – the C5 Aircross – however, thanks to its compact dimensions, it has a much cuter look!
The C3 will be powered by a turbocharged 1.2-liter engine that is supposed to produce around 100bhp of power. It will initially be available only with a manual transmission.
The cabin boasts a youthful and upscale appeal, with some bold colors on the dashboard to spice things up and we expect it to come with a good infotainment system as well. The price of the Citroën C3 will be around Rs 6 to 8 lakh when it goes on sale in 2022.
Morris Garages India has established itself as the most tech savvy brand among mass market offerings and their latest entrant, the Astor, does not disappoint on this front. While it comes with advanced driver aids and boasts incredible build quality, it’s the on-board AI assistant that really wins you over.
You can talk to the AI assistant, get updates, give him commands to control car features like the sunroof, and even ask him to tell you a joke! For a car you can talk to that is rich in comfort, the starting price of Rs 9.78 lakh seems surreal.
Tata Motors has taken the SUV design language and given it a new twist with the all new Punch. This small-sized SUV looks out of the room and can handle the tough stuff a bit too.
The Tata Punch is powered by a 1.2-liter gasoline engine that provides enough growl to get you up to triple-digit speeds on the highway and enough dynamism to make it the perfect city run. Starting at Rs 5.54 lakh, it gives you ample onboard space for five adults, a decent boot for a weekend getaway, high ground clearance for taking a beaten path, and a neat infotainment.
