These 7 Cars includes BMW 3 series to be launch in January 2021, Know Price and Features
Tech786: Putting aside the disproportionate economic slowdown in the second and third quarters, 2020 was a lukewarm year for the Indian automotive industry with several big launches throughout the year. However, it is expected that 2021 will also be a better year, at least in terms of new car launches.
That being said, a series of cars is set to launch in the country in the very first month of the new year. Here is a list of 7 cars that will be available for sale in the Indian market in January 2021, take a look –
Here’s 7 Upcoming Cars to be Launch in January 2021
1: Jeep Compass
Jeep launched the Compass SUV in India in 2017, and the vehicle remained unchanged except for the new variant. Next year, the American manufacturer will finally give the compass a much-needed facelift. While the exterior will also get some changes, the interior will also get some changes.
The dashboard’s design will be different, and the touchscreen infotainment system will be larger, and a fully digital instrument console will be added. The current Jeep Compass is priced between Rs 16.49 lakh and Rs 24.99 lakh and we expect the facelift model to be slightly more expensive.
2: Toyota Fortuner facelift
After introducing the Innova Crysta facelift in India, Toyota is now turning its focus to the Fortuner. While the SUV is scheduled to receive only a mid-life makeover, we expect some new features as well as some visual updates to be made so that it can be new.
It is expected to get a 2.7-liter petrol and 2.8-liter diesel powertrain, but the engine is expected to be better tuned than before. The diesel mill currently produces 177 PS and 420 Nm (450 Nm with 6-speed AT), however, after the update, it will be rated at 204 PS / 500 Nm. On the other hand, the petrol powertrain will be maintained in the same tune condition, i.e. 166 PS / 245 Nm.
3: Tata Altroz Turbo
So far, the Tata Ultrose has been introduced with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 83 PS and 113 Nm, as well as a 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine at 90 PS / 200 Nm torque. Both engines are offered as standard with manual transmission. However, Tata Motors has, on various occasions, confirmed its plans to introduce a turbo-petrol engine for the premium hatch, along with a dual clutch automatic transmission.
The new powertrain will be a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol unit, providing maximum power of 110 PS at 5,500 rpm and peak torque of 140 Nm which will be available between 1,500-5,500 rpm. Ultrose Turbo will be available for sale next month and will be priced from Rs 7.99 lakh to Rs 8.75 lakh (ex-showroom).
4: MG Hector Plus 7-seater
MG Motor recently confirmed that the seven-seater version of Hector Plus will be launched in the Indian market next month. Hector was the first MG product in the Indian market, and the SUV quickly gained popularity in the country thanks to its superior and large feature list. MG felt that the 7-seater version of the car could take success a step further.
However, the new 7-seat version will have a bench-type row in the middle. The car will be offered with the same 1.5-liter petrol, 1.5-liter petrol with a mild hybrid and a 2.0-liter turbo diesel powertrain. In addition, the new 7-seat version of the SUV will be priced in the same price band as the 6-seat Hector Plus, currently priced between Rs 13.73 lakh and Rs 18.68 lakh (ex-showroom). The company also plans to launch a 4 × 4 variant of the Hector Plus 6-seater, and we can see that on the 7-seater version as well.
5: Toyota Fortuner Legender
Toyota officially revealed the facelifted Fortuner a few months ago, and is preparing to launch the updated SUV on 6 January 2021 in India. However, even after the Fortuner facelift arrives, the company will offer a special legend variant.
The Legendar is basically a sportier variant of the Fortuner facelift, and due to the more premium offers, it will sit at the top of the list of seven-seat SUVs. Not only does it get some additional features compared to the regular Fortuner, but it will also sport many cosmetic changes, making it more aggressive. The powertrain options will likely be similar to the Fortuner facelift.
6: BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine
The 3 Series is one of the best-selling BMW cars in India, and the German carmaker has now decided to launch a longer-wheelbase version of the car in the country. This car, known as BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine, is going to be launched in India next month. Compared to the standard model, the Gran Limousine variant has a 110 mm longer wheelbase, while the 120 mm is longer than the regular 3 Series.
Along with the feature list, the 2.0-liter turbo petrol and diesel powertrain will all be shared with the standard 3 Series. BMW has confirmed that the 3 Series Gran Limousine will be launched in India on January 21, 2021. However, the new variant will be slightly more expensive than the regular 3 Series.
7: Audi A4 Facelift
Audi did not upgrade the A4 luxury sedan to BS6 emission norms, which came into effect from 1 April 2020, and was therefore discontinued in India. However, the automaker clearly has plans to launch it for 2021, and it will be the company’s first launch in the new year.
Compared to the previous model, the upcoming 2021 A4 facelift will have some notable changes such as new headlamps with larger single-frame grille DRLs, twisted front and rear bumper as well as new LED taillamps. Also on offer will be a 2.0-liter TSI engine that gives a maximum power of 190 PS and peak torque of 320 Nm. It will be standardly paired with a 7-speed DSG.
