October is the official starting of the much-awaited festive season in India. Car deliveries and bookings reach peaks during this time of the year. This is also a season where the automotive industry witnesses quite a few launches. Here’s a list of 5 Cars Launching in October 2021!
Tata unveiled the Punch a few days ago and it has definitely raised a few eyebrows. Based on the same platform as the Altroz, the Punch is an offering in the micro SUV segment. It will compete against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Ignis and the Mahindra KUV100. It will also compete with the upcoming Hyundai Casper. The Punch is expected in the market at October 2021 and prices will start at around Rs.4-5 Lakhs.
This is probably the most awaited car launching in October 2021. The Mahindra XUV700 was showcased on 14th August and is expected to launch on 2nd October 2021. The XUV700 has shaken the segment with features like Autonomous Driving, Auto Emergency Braking, etc. The starting price of Rs.11.99 Lakhs has also left the competitors mouths wide open! A 200 HP, 380nm producing engine, with the massive size of the XUV700 will be a killer deal at Rs.11.99 Lakhs.
Maruti has given the Celerio a much-needed facelift for the 2021 model year. The new Celerio will get a revised design, somewhat inspired by the outgoing Swift. The engine will however most likely be the same as before. It is expected to be priced between Rs.4-6 Lakhs. It will compete against the Hyundai Santro and the Tata Tiago.
Update: The 2021 Maruti Suzuki Celerio launch has been delayed to December 2021
MG Motors India recently unveiled the Astor for the Indian market. The Astor is based on the MG ZS-ev, but it gets a petrol engine. The Astor also gets an upgrade on the interiors as compared to the ZS. What’s unique about this car is that it gets Level 2 Autonomous Driving, and it also gets a personal AI assistant! Both these features are a segment first. The MG Astor is expected to have a starting price of Rs.10-11 Lakhs, which will put it right up against the Kia Seltos and the Hyundai Creta.
