The French automaker is coming to India in 2021 finally. The automaker will launch its first car for India in the Month of March-April with its C5 Aircross. The fact is the car is assembled in Tamil Nadu, India Now let us talk about the car in-depth:- C5 aircross is a Mid SUV car that will directly compete with Hyundai Tucson, Volkswagen Tiguan, Jeep Compass, and Skoda karoq. Now the images of the Indian car version are out,. Estimate price is around:- 28lakhs (ex-showroom) Exterior:- The Aircross has a very appealing and unique design with a split front grille. The daytime running led lights running across the bonnet will definitely make it look more attractive on road. We can see fog lamps, a good chrome sort of treatment and more with comparison to human anatomy the nose(i.e the logo integration) is looking like someone punched it and made it look like this. *though the overall design from the front is Good* There is a Dual-tone option that will look more sporty. A, B, C pillars are also coated in all black with a chrome line on the top starting from between A and B pillar and continues on the C pillar and the also cover the windows from the bottom side. From the backside, the headlights of the car look similar to the ones in the Kia carnival. The overall look from the back looks very ovalish in design but very generous Other highlights include a roof-mounted spoiler, vents at the side, parking sensors, and plastic cladding at the bottom with non-functional chrome exhaust tailpipes. Interior:- The interior of the car looks premium It has a massive panoramic sunroof which brings a lot of air inside the cabin. There is a square pad on the steering wheel which has a lot of functions on offer and there is a piano black finish on the third center part of the steering wheel There a different styles of gear levers present and also the car has various drivetrain on offer (Snow, Sand, All Terrain, Standard, and Traction Control Off. ) The central console has an 8-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 12.3-inch digital driver’s display features three different views: personal, dual, and minimum modes. Safety is covered by six airbags, ABS with EBD, parking sensors, electronic stability control, and a blind spot monitoring system Notable features include a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, seats with memory foam for added comfort, ambient lighting, air purifier, powered driver’s seat, cruise control, and a powered tailgate. The single powertrain on the C5 Aircross is the 2.0-liter diesel engine with an output of 175bhp and 400Nm of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters sending power to the front wheels. It is also equipped with four grip modes – standard, snow, all-terrain, and sand. Important question alert !!!!! Kitna deti hai? *mileage* This powertrain is claimed to return a fuel efficiency of 18.60kmpl. It has a massive boot space on offer, the C5 Aircross’ boot is capable of accommodating 580 liters of luggage Well last but not least Citreon is known for its comfort after all. C5 Aircross will be no different, with the carmaker’s ‘Progressive Hydraulic Cushion’ suspension system. If your pocket has the depth to buy this go for it as these specs are good enough it can provide you with great comfort and many such things you know as well if you have read till here. Before buying wait for the aftersales performance(service, maintenance, parts availability, etc) by the company, and after knowing all this go for it. The overall package it provides is very good.

We own both an older 2017 Tiguan and a 2019 Tiguan in the new design. I can say that that I really like a lot about the new design, but it is a very different experience. The older generation is “classic” VW in every aspect. The interior is impeccable, with top-quality materials throughout and attention to detail. Steering is heavy like a good German car, but not quite a nimble as the smaller VWs (like the Golf or older VWs). Every aspect of the build feels rock solid. The 2.0 Turbo is the same engine used in the GTI. You’ll get good acceleration, but not that jackrabbit quickness the GTI or older GLIs have. It’s also relatively small… think slightly larger than the Gold, but still a cabin made for 4 adults. The new Tiguan represents the way VW is going across the lineup. We Americans seems to like bigger cars, and you get that in the new Tiguan. It will seat 5 adults comfortably in the cabin, and has a much broader and deeper trunk space. The design language on the interior is more angular and, while finished with excellent details, uses slightly cheaper materials. The plastics are a bit cheaper once you get below waist level, for example. The interior space is much better designed for storage. There are tons of pockets and spaces for little doodads. The rear trunk area, for example, has deep wells on either side that are great for stashing milk jugs so they don’t roll around the back. The rear cover can be removed and has a special slot you can stash it in if you don’t use it. There’s a lot of good design thinking there. The steering and handling is great, but much lighter than the older model. It feels good, but it doesn’t have that German heavy feel that you find in the older model. Handling in maneuvers and tight corners is excellent. The engine feels very good, too. It’s not the 2.0 turbo, but it is a turbo model that runs on regular gas. Gas mileage is much improved. While it doesn’t have the punch that the older model had, it doesn’t struggle to get up to highway speeds. Lots of good tech to be had as well. The media unit is one of the best I’ve played with in terms of responsiveness for things like maps, apple car play, etc. We also have the one with the digital dashboard, which is pretty good for a non-luxury car. Most of the features are just cute toys, but the integrated navigation helps keep your eyes on the road. Overall, I really like it. I agree with many reviews I have seen that it beats out the competition like Honda and Toyota for a complete package in a small SUV. It’s just different from you usually expect from German cars. I hope this helps!
Well… not in India. Only thing that the Japanese cars have done well in India is to provide a package that compels Indians to buy their cars over better built and higher quality European and American ones. Take the case of Toyota Fortuner Vs Ford Endeavor, the Endeavor is the better car than the Toyota in every aspect and sells only 1/3rd. I was using Japanese cars for around 8 years and then moved to the European ones. I currently own a VW Tiguan and I am completely satisfied with everything the car offers and the quality is way ahead than the other similarly priced Japanese cars. The short answer is they don’t make better cars at cheaper price, but they are able to sell more of inferior quality cars priced similar to their European and American counterparts by a comparatively better after sales service experience.
The ,Volkswagen Park Assist, system comes standard on a number of ,models, when you choose to upgrade to one of the higher trim packages. These ,models, include popular favorites like the ,Volkswagen, Jetta, Golf and Atlas as well as the all-new 2018 ,Volkswagen, Tiguan
I own a Tiguan indium grey colour,I thought of buying a Audi A3 or X1 but they might show off too much to the neighbours and relatives and others could attract some passive troubles to me so I settled with Tiguan which is fully loaded for the 37.5 lakhs on road price its overall a well rounded package so that peoples eyes don’t pop out seeing my car but at the ame time I enjoy all luxuries.
New Audi Q3 The wait for the second-generation Audi Q3 has been a long one. Revealed in 2018, the new Q3 has moved further up the ranks in terms of its design, size and features, and with the Q2 taking over as the entry-level Q model, the Q3 has been allowed some room to grow. Design-wise, the second-gen Q3 is clearly inspired by the bigger Q8, and thanks to the increase in dimensions, will be roomier than its predecessor. In international markets, the new Q3 is equipped with adaptive dampers, park assist, Audi’s 12.3-inch Virtual Cockpit digital instruments display, an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with voice controls, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system. For India, Audi is most likely to offer the new Q3 with a 2.0-litre petrol engine only, paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch auto gearbox. That said, the standard Q3 may be preceded by the high-performance RS Q3, which is also set for an India launch. When it arrives in 2021, the new Audi Q3 will rival the BMW X1, Volvo XC40 and the second-gen, Mercedes-Benz GLA. Coming ,Late-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 P ,Price ,Rs 40–50 lakh Audi Q5 Facelift The Q5 hasn’t been part of Audi’s India portfolio since the BS6 emission norms came into effect, but the SUV is set to return in facelifted form next year. Among key changes on the outside are a new octagonal ‘Single frame’ grille, LED headlights, OLED tail-lights, revised front and rear bumpers and new wheel designs. Inside, the updated Q5 will benefit from a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen and connected car tech. Expect the Q5 to borrow the 245hp, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine from the A6 sedan, paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic and Quattro all-wheel-drive. Coming ,Mid-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 P ,Price ,Rs 55–60 lakh Audi Q7 Facelift Like the A4 and Q5, the ,Q7,, too, has been missing from Audi’s India range for quite some time now, but it will make a comeback in 2021. The updated Q7 gets a number of styling changes that lend it a more butch look that’s in line with the latest SUVs from Audi. The Q7’s interior has also been redone, with the switch to Audi’s new-age, twin-touchscreen MMI infotainment system. A 3.0-litre V6 petrol will likely be the sole engine on offer in India. Coming ,Mid-2021 ,Engines ,3.0 P ,Price ,Rs 80–85 lakh Citroën C21 Compact SUV Citroën will follow up its debut offering, the C5 Air cross, with a brand new compact SUV. Codenamed C21, it’s based on the PSA Group’s new Common Modular Platform (CMP), designed for developing markets. It’s expected to bear familiar Citroën crossover design cues, like a split headlight setup, chunky alloy wheels and heavy body cladding all around. Powering the C21 will be a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine, which is expected to be the only engine on offer. Sources say this engine is being benchmarked against Maruti Suzuki’s engines for refinement and fuel efficiency. Coming ,Late-2021 ,Engines ,1.2 P ,Price ,Rs 7–11 lakh BMW X3 and X4 Facelifts The third-generation BMW X3 – launched in India in 2018 – is due for a mid-life update in 2021. Every BMW Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) – mid-life refresh in BMW-speak – brings a number of cosmetic changes, and the updated X3 is expected to get sharper, slimmer headlights and styling that brings it more in line with the current 3 Series. It’s also likely to have upgraded infotainment, features and new tech, which will be mirrored by the X4 LCI that is also expected to be launched in India next year. Coming ,Late-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 P, 2.0 D, 3.0 D ,Price ,Rs 62–68 lakh Citroën C5 Aircross The model that will mark Citroën’s India entry is the C5 Aircross. It was originally slated for a late-2020 launch, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced the PSA Group to push it to the first quarter of 2021. The C5 Aircross is quintessentially French, and will certainly attract attention with its novel design and quirky styling. The 5-seat SUV is expected to be offered in a single, fully-loaded variant and is likely to come with features such as an electronic parking brake, dual-zone climate control, a hands-free tailgate, full-LED headlamps with DRLs, a panoramic sunroof, a powered driver’s seat, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a 12.3- inch digital instruments screen. Powering the SUV will be a 2.0-litre diesel engine good for 180hp, mated to an 8-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox. While the C5 Aircross will be locally assembled, it’s expected to be priced upwards of Rs 30 lakh. At this price, the SUV will do battle with the likes of the Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Compass and the facelifted Volkswagen Tiguan. Coming ,Early-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 D ,Price ,Rs 30 lakh New Force Gurkha The hard-nosed Force Gurkha has received a thorough revamp. Design changes include new bumpers, headlights with LED DRLs, revised tail-lights and a different grille. It’s based on a new ladder-frame chassis and has been designed to meet the new crash test and pedestrian-protection norms. Force has tried to lend the new Gurkha a more upmarket feel on the inside. The interior has a dual-tone colour scheme, a redesigned dashboard and a touchscreen infotainment system. As before, it will be available in 3- and 5-door forms, and a two-wheel-drive version will be on offer too. Coming ,Early-2021 ,Engines ,2.2 D ,Price ,Rs 10–12 lakh Ford EcoSport Facelift 2021 will bring a major update for the Ford Eco Sport. The pioneer of the compact SUV segment is set to be facelifted and will receive significant sheet metal changes and styling tweaks, along with using Mahindra’s 1.2-litre T-GDI engine that will serve as a replacement for the 1.0-litre Eco Boost engine in the Eco Sport. The 1.2-litre T-GDI (Turbocharged Gasoline Direct Injection) unit belongs to Mahindra’s new mStallion family of petrol engines. Codenamed G12, the BS6- compliant engine produces a healthy 130hp and 230Nm or torque. Coming ,Mid-2021 ,Engines ,1.2 P ,Price ,Rs 11–13 lakh Ford C SUV Ford is working on a new C SUV, codenamed CX757, it will share its platform and other mechanicals with the next-gen XUV500, and will take on the Tata Harrier and MG Hector, slotting in above the likes of the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. It will also be designed by renowned design house Pininfarina. When Ford’s new SUV arrives closer to the end of 2021, it is expected to borrow the new XUV500’s 185hp, 2.2-litre diesel and 190hp, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engines. Coming ,End-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 P, 2.2 D ,Price ,Rs 14–20 lakh Ford Ranger Raptor Ford’s renowned Ranger pick-up truck (on which the Endeavour is based) will make its way to India next year. Leveraging the 2,500-unit rule for CBUs, Ford will ship in the performance version of the Ranger, named the Raptor. The Raptor is powered by an twin-turbo version of the Endeavour’s 2.0-litre Panther diesel engine. In bi-turbo guise, it makes 213hp with a solid 500Nm. The pick-up’s four-wheel-drive system channels power via a 10-speed automatic gearbox. It also gets long-travel suspension with Fox dampers, a six-mode Terrain Management System (TMS), high-range and low-range settings and BF Goodrich tyres. Coming ,Mid-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 D ,Price ,Rs 70–80 lakh Seven-Seat Hyundai Creta The Hyundai Creta family will grow in 2021 with the arrival of a new 7-seat derivative. However, it won’t be called Creta, and will instead have a completely different name. This is to help differentiate it from the 5-seat Creta, which will continue, positioned below the new model, in the Hyundai line-up. The 7-seater will sport styling tweaks up front, but the bigger design changes will be at the rear, as this will be a longer vehicle with a more upright rear section. Expect the 7-seat model to use the same 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engines, as well as a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol, as the Creta. Coming ,Late 2021 ,Engines ,1.4 P, 1.5 P, 1.5 D ,Price ,Rs 13–20 lakh Seven-Seat Jeep Compass Codenamed ‘project 598’, Jeep’s D SUV will be based on the Compass’s monocoque platform, but it will be much longer to accommodate the third row of seats. Its wheelbase will also be increased over the standard Compass to balance the extra length (and aid stability), which could result in better cabin space, especially in the middle row. Powering this 7-seater will be FCA’s familiar 2.0- litre diesel engine, which does duty in the Compass, the Tata Harrier and the MG Hector, but in a higher 200hp state of tune. A 9-speed torque-converter automatic with all-wheel drive will also be part of the package. Coming ,Mid-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 D ,Price ,Rs 30–35 lakh Isuzu V-Cross, MU-X BS6 With BS6 norms coming into effect this year and the COVID-19 lockdown halting operations for all carmakers, Isuzu was forced to push back the introduction of its BS6 model range, and has effectively had no passenger vehicles to sell for the majority of 2020. That is set to change in early 2021, as Isuzu will roll out BS6 versions of the V-Cross lifestyle pick-up truck and the MU-X SUV. What’s worth noting is that these will be upgraded versions of the BS4 models, and not the new-generation models that have been revealed abroad. Coming ,Early-2021 ,Engines ,1.9 D, 2.5 D (V-Cross); 3.0 D (MU-X) ,Price ,Rs 17–21 lakh (V-Cross); Rs 28–30 lakh (MU-X) Jaguar F-Pace Facelift As part of a mid-life update, the F-Pace will get a number of exterior changes and also an overhauled interior. The LED head-and tail-lights are slimmer than before, the wheel options are new, and the front and rear bumpers have also been redesigned. Inside, the dashboard is all new and features an 11.4- inch tablet-like touchscreen. A big addition to the F-Pace is the company’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system. In India, the F-Pace is expected to come with a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 2.0-litre diesel, and hybrid versions may be offered too. Coming ,Early-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 P, 2.0 D ,PRICE ,Rs 68–75 Lakh Land Rover Discovery Facelift Land Rover, recently revealed the mid-life update for the fifth-gen Discovery, which features a refreshed design, new tech and a set of hybrid powertrain options. Tweaks to the head- and tail-lights, grille and bumpers aside, the facelift also gets a tablet-style 11.4-inch touchscreen with the Pivi Pro infotainment system and a new steering wheel inspired by the one on the Defender. There will be a set of new-generation engines, including a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol, as well as 3.0-litre petrol and diesel straight-six engines; the latter two will now feature a 48V mild-hybrid system. Coming ,Mid-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 P, 3.0 P, 3.0 D ,Price ,Rs 78–90 lakh Mahindra Bolero Neo Even after all these years, the Bolero remains a key pillar for Mahindra, continuing to rack up strong sales month after month. In 2021, the trusty, utilitarian workhorse is set to receive its biggest overhaul in years. Mahindra will roll out the Bolero Neo, which will be based on a new-age ladder-frame chassis. And while the Bolero won’t stray too far from its boxy, upright design, it will look more modern and will have a better-appointed (and equipped) interior. Coming ,Late-2021 ,Engines ,1.5 D ,Price ,Rs 8–9.5 lakh Mahindra TUV300 Facelift After receiving an update in 2019, the Mahindra TUV300 family will return in the BS6 era with another facelift. Caught testing on multiple occasions, the standard 7-seat TUV300 is expected to get a host of styling changes and a longer features list, along with an upgraded 1.5-litre, three-cylinder diesel engine. The larger TUV300 Plus will also make a comeback with cosmetic tweaks that will mirror those on the smaller TUV. Also expected are captain’s chairs for the second row and a forward-facing third row. Coming ,Early 2021 ,Engines ,1.5 D (Std), 2.2 D (Plus) ,Price ,Rs 9–11 lakh (Std), Rs 10–12 lakh (Plus) New Mahindra Scorpio 2021 will see the launch of an all-new Mahindra Scorpio. The new-gen SUV will be wider and longer than before, based on an updated ladder-frame chassis with all-new body panels. That said, it’s expected to retain the upright silhouette that has defined it since it was first launched in 2002. The interior will be plusher and have a completely new design, too, borrowing certain parts from newer Mahindra models. Under the hood, the new Scorpio will come with a 140hp, 2.2-litre diesel and also the new 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine from the Thar. Coming Mid 2021, ,Engines ,2.0 P, 2.2 D ,Price ,Rs 12–16 lakh New Mahindra XUV500 Originally set for a 2020 debut, the new Mahindra XUV500 is now likely to arrive by March 2021. It is expected to have a plusher interior with a dual-screen setup, advanced driver assistance systems and both, petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol engine will be the 2.0-litre mStallion unit – which recently debuted on the second-gen Mahindra Thar – albeit transversely mounted, of course, and in a higher state of tune, developing 190hp. The 2.2-litre mHawk diesel, meanwhile, is expected to put out a substantial 180hp. Both engines are expected to get a 6-speed manual as well as a 6-speed torque converter automatic, and an all-wheel-drive system is also likely to be offered on higher variants. Coming ,Early-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 P, 2.2 D ,Price ,Rs 13–19 lakh Mahindra XUV300 1.2 M-stallion Though the XUV300 is already available with a BS6-compliant, 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine, it will soon add a new-gen, 1.2-litre, direct-injection turbo-petrol from Mahindra’s mStallion family to its roster. Paired with a manual gearbox, the new engine will put out 130hp and 230Nm, which is 20hp and 30Nm more than the current petrol engine. The XUV300 with this new engine made its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo in ‘Sportz’ form, with exterior decals and an all-black cabin with red accents, but the car was never launched. Expect to pay a premium over the current XUV300 petrol variants that retail for Rs 8.3-11.84 lakh. Coming ,Early-2021 ,Engines ,1.2 P ,Price ,Rs 10.5–12.5 lakh Maruti Suzuki Jimny If online chatter is anything to go by, the Jimny is one of the most awaited launches of 2021. India will get the Jimny in a new, larger 5-door body style that’s in development. A larger cabin and the addition of rear doors will make this 5-door Jimny more suitable to family buyers, but what will be interesting to see is how the stretched dimensions, particularly the longer wheelbase, impact the off-roader’s ability in the rough. Size aside, the Jimny 5-door will be no different to the 3-door model in its basic ingredients. It will be built on a ladder-frame chassis, feature rigid axles at both ends, and employ four-wheel drive with a low-range transfer case. The India-spec 5-door will be powered by the 105hp, 1.5-litre K15B petrol engine that can also be found in the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Ertiga and Vitara Brezza. Maruti will retail the Jimny 5-door at its premium Nexa outlets, with prices to start at just under Rs 10 lakh. Production of the Jimny is set to commence in December 2020 for exports, and will only be launched for Indian customers in the second half of 2021. Coming ,Mid-2021 ,Engines ,1.5 P ,Price ,Rs 10–12 lakh New Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Maruti Suzuki hit the nail on the head with the Vitara Brezza compact SUV. Launched in 2016, the Brezza quickly rose to the top of the segment, but five years later, the first-gen model will be due for replacement. For the second-gen model, Maruti is likely to stick with the rugged, squared-off and upright stance that made the Brezza so popular, and also focus on retaining its roomy back seat and large boot. It’s expected to be based on Suzuki’s Heartect platform and be notably lighter and more efficient than its predecessor. The new Brezza could also bring back ,Maruti’s 1.5-litre diesel engine,. Coming ,Late-2021 ,Engines ,1.5 P ,Price ,Rs 8-12 lakh New Mercedes-Benz GLA Originally set to be launched in 2020, the second-generation Mercedes-Benz GLA will now be launched early in 2021. The new-gen SUV aims to build on its predecessor’s success, but replaces its rounded design and hunkered-down appearance with a more upright stance and muscular styling on the outside. On the inside, the new GLA will offer more in the way of space and is also set to introduce features that weren’t present in its predecessor. The GLA will be offered with petrol and diesel engines, and the hotter AMG GLA 35 could be on the cards as well. Coming ,Early-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 P, 2.0 D ,Price ,Rs 38–45 lakh Skoda Kushaq Among all ,Skoda,’s launches slated for 2021, arguably be the most important will be the much-awaited Kushaq mid-size SUV. Scheduled to make its world premire in March, the SUV will be the first offering from the Volkswagen Group’s India 2.0 plan and will be based on the heavily localised MQB A0 IN platform. Previewed by the Vision IN concept seen here and set to precede the launch of the ,Volkswagen Taigun, – which it shares its underpinnings with – the ,Skoda Kushaq, will be over 4.2m long and will have a 2,671mm wheelbase, which promises ample space for rear seat passengers. 1.0- and 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine options will be on offer with manual and automatic gearbox options. Coming ,Mid 2021 ,Engines ,1.0 P, 1.5 P ,Price ,Rs 10–16 lakh Renault Kiger The next big thing from Renault is the Kiger compact SUV. Previewed by the Kiger concept (80 percent of it is said to be shared with the final, road-going model, design-wise), the production version will be based on Renault- Nissan’s global CMF-A+ modular platform that also underpins the Triber and the recently-launched Nissan Magnite. Renault’s first sub-four-metre SUV is set to be positioned at the lower end of the compact SUV market. In order to keep costs in check, the Kiger will share parts and components with the Triber and other Renault models, and will have some familiar bits on the inside. Along with a 72hp, 1.0-litre, naturally-aspirated engine, there will also be a 100hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol option. There will be no diesel engine on offer. Gearbox choices will include a 5-speed manual and an AMT for the naturally-aspirated petrol, while the turbo variant is also set to get a CVT automatic option. While it will be positioned in the lower-half of the compact SUV segment, price-wise, expect it to be at a bit of a premium compared to the Magnite. Coming ,Early-2021 ,Engines ,1.0 P ,Price ,Rs 5.5-10 lakh Tata HBX Tata Motors has confirmed that the final, production-spec mini-SUV, based on the ,HBX, concept, will be ,launched by March 2021,. It will be the second Tata model, after the Altroz, to be based on the carmaker’s new ALFA platform, and will slot in below the Nexon in the company’s SUV range. The production-spec HBX’s interior is likely to remain largely the same as that of the concept we saw at Auto Expo 2020, minus some of the trinkets. Speaking of features, the HBX is expected to get a part-digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control and a free-standing touchscreen infotainment system. It could also debut the direct-injection version of Tata’s 1.2- litre turbo-petrol engine. While the base engine option is expected to be the same 1.2-litre, naturally-aspirated petrol also found in the Tiago, Tigor and Altroz, the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol with direct injection will likely be a significantly more powerful alternative. Gearbox options for the Tata HBX will likely include a 5-speed manual and an AMT. There will be no diesel engine on offer, but Tata is working on an all-electric version of the HBX, which should arrive in a couple of years. Coming, Early-2021 ,Engines, 1.2 P ,Price, Rs 4.5–7.5 lakh MG ZS The ZS range will expand with the arrival of a 1.5 naturally-aspirated and a 111hp, 1.0-litre, direct-injection turbo petrol engine. The latter will be offered with a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission and is set to sport a sub-Rs 10-lakh starting price.

Coming ,Mid-2021 ,Engines ,2.0 P ,Price ,Rs 33–37 lakh Toyota Hilux Widely considered to be among the hardiest, most reliable vehicles ever made, the ,Toyoyo, Hilux is a pick-up with an enviable reputation. What will come as welcome news for those keen to have the Hilux in India is that it’s based on the same IMV platform as the ever-popular ,Innova Crysta, and ,Fortuner,, and also has the same powertrains, which will help Toyota keep costs in check. And talking of costs, Toyota is targeting an aggressive starting price of Rs 15 lakh for the Hilux, which will rival the Isuzu V-Cross. Coming ,Mid-2021 ,Engines ,2.4 D, 2.8 D ,Price ,Rs 15–20 lakh Volkswagen Tiguan Facelift Updated for 2021, the ,Volkswagen Tiguan, now sports a number of design changes, including a slimmer grille and restyled LED headlights.

Inside, the Taigun will have a digital instruments display and a large touchscreen infotainment system with connected-car tech. It’s expected to come with 1.0- and 1.5-litre TSI petrol engines, as well as manual and automatic gearbox options. Coming ,Mid-2021 ,Engines ,1.0 P, 1.5 P ,Price ,Rs 10–16 lakh
SUVs are also categorised as softroaders and traditional old school SUVs. The softroaders are a product of New age electronics, a monocoque chasis and a comparatively smaller size than the old schooled SUVs. Under that budget you can expect a lot of exciting packages, that offer great fun both behind the wheel as well as in the backseat. Let's start off with the options which come under this budget segment. Jeep compass Volkswagen Tiguan Tata Hexa Hyundai Tucson Toyota Fortuner (Costs a little over 25 lakhs) Ford Endeavour (Costs a little over 25 lakhs) If you just want comfort and well appointed interiors go for the Hyundai Tucson. If you want a capable offroader with decent interiors go for the Jeep compass or the Volkswagen Tiguan. If it's the ride quality that you are after and also want to do a fair bit of offroading with the vehicle too go for the Tata Hexa. But if you want a big brawny SUV that could annihilate any surface that you throw at it and is also feature packed, the big boys of this segment (Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Endeavour) are more than capable of serving you well in this regard. Cheers. Happy buying. :)
Love them or hate them, crossovers and SUVs are on top of the automotive world right now. The industry’s once-niche segment has become ,the, segment, and its growth is accelerating as time goes on. Just a few years ago, carmakers seemed reluctant to have even one crossover in their lineup. Now, some of the biggest names in the business are going all-in, completely removing passenger cars from their catalogs in favor of more utility vehicles. All of that growth and competition in the market is a great thing for consumers, but the overwhelming number of choices makes it hard to pick a winner. The good news is that there are several great options that won’t break the bank. We’ve driven and researched some of the best SUVs and crossovers on the market to bring you the best options under $25,000. Here’s my Top 10 list for 2020: Honda CR-V The CR-V was redesigned for the 2017 model year and while not much has changed since then, it still holds its ground against a slew of 2019’s newest competitors. That’s a testament to the staying power of Honda’s newest designs, their vehicles’ long list of standard features, and the strong value that every CR-V packs. The base LX trim comes with automatic climate controls, USB inputs, Bluetooth, and a continuously variable transmission that actually works. One slight mark against it is the price, which lands at $25,545 after destination, but you can probably negotiate the price to under $25K with a bit of effort. Mazda CX-5 As a brand, Mazda has a strong dual focus on engaging driving dynamics and upscale interiors. Nowhere is that philosophy more apparent than in the compact CX-5 crossover. Mazda’s ability to seat passengers and accommodate cargo is among the best in the segment as well, and even their entry-level vehicles include a compelling list of standard features. At $24,350, the base Sport trim comes with a 187-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 7.0-inch infotainment display, and an infotainment system that mimics the European heavyweights. Toyota RAV4 The 2019 redesign of Toyota’s RAV4 brought a more muscular stance and stronger lines but didn’t do much to increase space inside. Even so, there’s a reason the compact crossover has been around longer than almost anything else on the market: It’s a comfortable cruiser with excellent reliability ratings and a solid mix of standard features. Like the CR-V, the Toyota gets a pass for being slightly over our target price point if you negotiate well. That said, at $25,650 before destination, there’s plenty to like about even the most basic RAV4 trim. The LE model comes with dual-zone automatic climate controls and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. Every RAV4 also comes standard with Toyota’s Safety Sense package, which brings a pre-collision system, lane departure alerts, radar cruise control, and other valuable systems. Nissan Rogue Sport The Nissan crossover lineup has grown considerably in the past few years, with the addition of the tiny Kicks and the slightly larger Rogue Sport. Slotting into Nissan’s catalog below (and smaller than) the extremely popular Rogue compact crossover, the Rogue Sport starts at $23,385 after destination, and it comes with standard Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, and a 7.0-inch touchscreen. Kia Sportage The 2020 Sportage is on sale now with an updated exterior and refreshed technology. Though Kia now sells the much larger (and excellent) Telluride and smaller (also very good) Niro, the Sportage has been a staple in the lineup longer than most of the others. This year, there’s standard Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection, heated front seats, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind-spot monitor as standard equipment and the whole package lands at $23,990 before destination, in this segment a significant bargain. Hyundai Tucson Like Kia, Hyundai’s spread of crossovers has expanded greatly in recent years. Though it’s related to the Sportage – Hyundai also owns the Kia brand — the Tucson is less expensive and has a broader selection of trims and options. At $24,800, the Value trim is a step up from the base SE model, and it has heated power seats, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, a driver attention warning system, and lane-keeping assist to maintain its place in the safety-oriented segment. All-in, even the most expensive Tucson is under $35,000, making it one of the best values on our list. Chevrolet Equinox The Equinox isn’t necessarily “cool,” but it’s an easy choice for this list. Great handling and a family-friendly design make it a must-shop for anyone looking at crossovers and SUVs under $25,000. The base L trim slides in just under our mark at $24,995 including destination and comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, OnStar, and a 4G LTE hotspot. The big downside is that base models miss out on advanced safety tech completely. Features like blind-spot monitor and forward-collision warnings are either optional or standard on higher trims, but the entry-level trim doesn’t offer the availability of the highest-tech safety gear. Subaru Forester The Forester’s SUV-but-not-an-SUV attitude has been a winner for Subaru for quite a while, and the company’s 2019 updates to the vehicle have made it an even more appealing choice. Most notably, there’s standard all-wheel drive, as there is with all of Subaru’s other vehicles (save for the BRZ sports coupe). Every Forester also now comes standard with the excellent EyeSight advanced safety tech package. This brings automatic pre-collision braking, lane keep assist, and some added safety stuff. The 2019 Forester’s interior is a big step up in quality and comfort over older models, too, and for $24,295 before destination, it’s a lot of Subaru for the money. Volkswagen Tiguan The Tiguan got a big upgrade in 2018. Literally. The newest generation of VW’s smallest crossover is bigger than it has ever been – large enough now to shoehorn in a third row of seats. It’s the only vehicle on our list that even offers the option of an extra row, but it’s one of the smallest third rows you’ll find in any vehicle. Of course, if it’s a question of squeezing in or being left behind, most people will squeeze right in. The Tiguan also has one of the most intuitive infotainment systems on our list and comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Shoppers can spend over $40,000 on a fully loaded Tiguan, but the base model is well-equipped at just $24,295. Ford Escape Though the cat’s out of the bag with the soon to be released 2020 Escape, Ford’s still selling the 2019 model and there’s a lot to like about it. At its starting price of $24,105 before destination, the current Escape comes out of the box with voice control, 17-inch wheels, and a solid 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. The 2019 Escape’s cargo hold is large enough to place it in the top half of the segment, and the driving experience is comfortable and confidence-inspiring. (The 2019 Ford Escape is pictured above.)
