The year 2022 is all set to be one of the most eventful years in the Indian Automotive industry for both OEMs as well as consumers. All major OEMs are geared up for several launches across segments, each month. And talking about popular segments, the SUV segment is still the hottest. So here are 5 upcoming SUVs in May 2022.
Tata Nexon EV 2022
After the success of the Curvv concept, next in line for Tata is a major upgrade to the country’s best selling Electric Vehicle: The Nexon EV. Set to receive a larger 40kWh battery pack enabling the EV to now attain a range of 400 Km as officially tested the Nexon EV will also bring on board top-notch features such as cruise control, ESC, ventilated seats, and new Regeneration modes. The new Nexon EV is rumoured to be offered along the current Nexon EV to add some diversity in terms of range and features. The price announcement of the SUV is expected to take place on the 20th of April.
Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo
The King of compact SUVs, the Skoda Kushaq is all set to get the top-notch Monte Carlo edition to its lineup. Much like all Skoda Monte Carlos, the Kushaq MC will also be adorned with gloss black treatment across various places such as the bumper inserts, front grille, wing mirrors, skid plate etc. Along with that, the special trim will also offer new 17 inch rims with Monte Carlo badging on the fenders. The biggest offering however will be the digital instrument along with red and black upholstery and inserts. The price announcement of the Kushaq Monte Carlo is expected around the end of April 2022.
The Jeep Meridian SUV
The three-row version of the ever-popular Compass, the Meridian is more than just a stretch. The SUV brings in a larger wheelbase and a taller and wider stance along with a sportier look that makes the Meridian different. The interiors, however, will largely remain the same with only a new colour scheme added on. When launched, the SUV will offer a 7 seater layout, with a six-seater version joining later. At the heart of the machine will be a 2.0-litre diesel engine, with 6-speed manual and 9-speed automatic gearboxes, and will be offered in both FWD and AWD configurations. The Meridian’s announcement is expected somewhere around mid-May.
Maruti Suzuki Brezza SUV 2022
Seen tested several times, the Maruti Suzuki Brezza is now closer than ever before. Bringing in a new exterior profile the Brezza 2002 will bring in new LED headlights and DRLs, a new rear profile with LED tail lamps, redesigned front and rear bumpers, refreshingly new alloys and a lot more. Even on the inside, the Brezza 2022 will bring in a lot of changes such as a sunroof, 9-inch touch infotainment with Smart Play Pro+, flat-bottom steering, hill hold control, 360-degree camera and much more. Under the hood, however, the Brezza 2022 will retain the 1.5-litre four-cylinder K15B petrol engine with improvements in the mild-hybrid tech. The existing four-speed AT can be replaced with a new six-speed torque converter AT with paddle shifters this time.
Hyundai Venue Facelift/N-Line
A much due facelift to the Hyundai Venue is all set to arrive. With test mules spotted testing, it is evident that the venue will bring in a redesigned exterior profile. These changes can inculcate a redesigned front and rear bumper, new parametric grille and new headlight, and taillights with Ioniq 5 inspired LED graphics. The Facelift Venue’s announcement is expected around late May.
