Launch Date: First Quarter 2019

In 2019, Kia Motors would be stepping into the Indian market with their first offering, a compact SUV. Showcased as Kia SP-Concept during last year’s Auto Expo, this SUV is based on Hyundai Creta and could be called the Trazor. Set for a first quarter launch, not much is known about the engine and interior specification. However given the experience of other Kia products like the Sportage (SUV), Rio (hatchback), Carnival (MPV) and Stinger GT one thing is for sure that the Kia Trazor would be premium and feature rich.


Launch Date: August 2019

Hyundai Tucson facelift will feature changes like a new cascading trapezoidal grille, sharper headlamps with a L-shaped design for LED daytime running lights. In comparison to the front, the rear does not have that many updates besides the repositioning of reflector inserts on either side that is now in line with that of the number plate. Its cabin has been redesigned, as it will now offer a new floating touchscreen infotainment system plus a revised instrument cluster and repositioned air-vents. As for the powertrain, it is speculated that Hyundai could fit the Tucson with a 1.6 litre diesel unit capable of producing 175 bhp of power output.

An improvised version of the SsangYong Tivoli, Mahindra XUV300 will offer features like a large touch screen, sunroof, dual-zone climate control, and cruise control among many others. Powering Mahindra XUV300 will be new 1.2 litre turbo petrol while the diesel unit (1.5 litre) would be borrowed from Mahindra Marazzo.
