The second wave of the pandemic might have put the Indian automotive industry at an all-time low, but as they say, we should never lose hope. The Indian automotive industry is set to go on a revival path soon and to add a boost to the revival, we have certain upcoming cars which are highly awaited and will definitely give a push to the sales! Here is a list of upcoming cars that are expected to arrive in the Indian market by the end of this year.
New Hyundai Alcazar | ETA: June 2021
The one which is very near to the launch. The Hyundai alcazar has already started reaching the dealerships and you would definitely see it running on the roads within June 2021. While Hyundai plans to hit a great part of the market with the Alcazar, what do you think, will it be able to beat Tata Safari in terms of sales? Which one would you choose between these two if given a choice?
2021 Skoda Octavia | ETA: June 2021
This one has also started reaching dealerships now and the launch is scheduled for June 10th. This sedan will get a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine and possibly a 1.5-litre turbo-petrol unit at a later date. As of now, the only rival in the Indian market to the Skoda Octavia will be the Hyundai Elantra and as always, we would like you to take on the comments section and let us know which one would you prefer and why!
New Skoda Kushaq | ETA: June/July 2021
One of the major launches scheduled for the upcoming months in the Indian automotive market is the Skoda Kushaq. Showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo as the Vision IN, this has now taken shape to form a perfect market read model and will surely be a very tough competition to the likes of Creta, Seltos and more similar cars in the market.
2021 Force Gurkha | ETA: July/August 2021
Mahindra Thar is also going to get a fine rivalry in the market from the upcoming Force Gurkha. They are planning to launch the BS6 version of the Gurkha in the Indian market and this will surely divert some of the Thar buyers towards Force showrooms. Isn’t it? The estimated starting price of this off-roader is around 10 Lakhs and it will be fun to see how it takes on the Indian market with Thar being present in the market.
New Mahindra XUV700 | ETA: TBD
Another highly awaited car in the Indian automotive industry. If we are talking about the upcoming cars in 2021, this could be the one that would offer maximum sales push to its parent brand and the automotive industry overall. The Mahindra XUV700 is expected to be the flagship luxury SUV from the Indian automaker which will be rich in terms of features, comfort and performance. Now that Mahindra has been testing this car for a long, we expect them to launch it really soon.
2021 Mahindra Scorpio | ETA: TBD
Another one from Mahindra among the upcoming cars in India in 2021 is the new-gen Scorpio which has been spotted testing many times on the Indian roads and just like the XUV700, we expect them to launch this one in the Indian market in 2021 too. Once Scorpio arrives in the market with a new generation, survival is going to be really difficult for others because Scorpio still continues to sell in a considerable amount in India with its current generation too! Imagine how well the new one would sell.
2021 Hyundai Elantra | ETA: TBD
The international market already has this one on sale. While Skoda is planning to launch the new-gen Octavia, Hyundai is also planning to drop something great in the Indian market. Octavia’s direct rival is all set to get a generation change and this will surely be a very big threat to the Czech sedan. Among upcoming cars in India 2021, Elantra is definitely there. There is no official date or month confirmation as of now. We can expect them to speed up the process considering Octavia’s launch is almost here.
Mercedes GLS Maybach| ETA: TBD
Moving towards luxury cars, we have the Mercedes GLS Maybach which will enter the Indian market. Now, most of you already know that it has a bouncing or dancing feature in the international market and Mercedes is definitely going to bring this feature to our shores as well. Dancing car parties ahead? What do you think? Will this be able to beat the Lambo tallboy Urus?
Audi Q7 Facelift | ETA: TBD
Last but not least, on our list of upcoming cars 2021, we have the Audi Q7. We can expect this car to boast a price tag of a whopping 1Cr! With a 3.0-litre diesel engine, this will definitely redefine luxury with all the modern-day features and 2021 Audi styling. The Audi Q7 currently stands among the popular luxury SUVs in India and the facelift is expected to raise the standards further.
