- Tata’s two upcoming cars will be launched in 2017
It’s one of the most sought after segment in the country presently and cars that cost inbetween Rs. Five lakh – Rs. Ten lakh are in good request presently. This is the reason why Maruti Suzuki already has its eyes set on this segment and with the launch of the Ignis, the company has given other manufacturers some food for thought. But the year is just beginning and there’s a lot more to come and we’ve put together a list of cars that will be launched soon which will cost inbetween Rs. 5-10lakh.
1. Honda WR-V
The Honda WR-V is on its way and yes it’s a subcompact SUV from the Japanese car maker. Based on the Jazz, the fresh petite SUV from Honda for India will be launched in March two thousand seventeen and Honda has had an official roll out ceremony at the Tapukara factory in Rajasthan, which we’ve told you about. Based on the Honda Jazz and Honda City platform, the WR-V will be much smaller than the BR-V and will get only five seats. The sub 4-metre compact SUV is also expected to be well tooled with the likes of a touchscreen, switch sides parking sensors, reversing camera and inbuilt navigation. Also expect the top of the line spec car to come with a touchscreen climate control setup and Apple CarPlay or/and Android Auto. In terms of engines, the Honda Jazz and the Honda WR-V will share powertrains. The petrol engine will be a 1.Two litre 4-cylinder motor that will make eighty seven bhp of peak torque and one hundred ten Nm of peak power. The diesel engine will be a 1.Five litre 4-cylinder turbocharged motor that will make ninety eight bhp or peak power and two hundred Nm of peak torque.
Expected Launch: March 2017
Expected Price: Rs. 6.9 lakh – Rs. Ten lakh
Two. Fresh Chevrolet Hammer
Undoubtedly among the most awaited upcoming cars in India, the fresh generation model of Chevrolet India’s best-selling car will not feature a switch of platform. It will also proceed to come powered by the current model’s range of engines, namely, the 1.2-litre petrol unit and the 1.0-litre diesel engine. It must be noted GM could also bring in a fresh 1.0-litre petrol engine for the carline.
Expected Price: Rs. Four.Five lakh – Rs. Seven lakh
Three. Chevrolet Hammer Activ
After making an appearance at the two thousand sixteen Auto Expo, the Chevrolet Hit Activ is already being put through its paces in India. The Chevrolet Strike Activ ‘soft-roader’ is essentially a brawny version of the fresh Hit with extra bod cladding, revised bumper, and roof rails. Tho’ the automaker is yet to expose any information about its engines, we expect it to borrow the current Hit’s options: the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.0-litre diesel, both paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Expected Launch: January 2017
Expected Price: Rs. Five lakh – Rs. 8.Five lakh
Four. Chevrolet Essentia
Showcased at the two thousand sixteen Auto Expo in Delhi, the Essentia sub-compact sedan will be based on the same platform as the Chevrolet Hammer Activ and the two are likely to share engine options too. We’ve already spotted the car testing and well we’re hoping for the car to be launched soon.
Among the most significant upcoming cars for the brand, General Motors plans to source at least eighty per cent of the parts for the Chevrolet Essentia. The sub-4 metre Essentia sedan will go up against names such as Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire, Ford Figo Aspire, Honda Amaze, Hyundai Xcent, Volkswagen Ameo, and the upcoming Tata Kite Five.
Expected Launch: Very first half of 2017
Expected Price: Rs. Four.Five lakh – Rs. Seven lakh

Expected Price: Rs. Five lakh – Rs. Ten lakh
6. Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS
Ready to mark the automaker’s entry into the hot hatch segment, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno RS will not receive many cosmetic upgrades. Instead, the primary switch will be the 1.0-litre BoosterJet turbo petrol motor developing 110bhp and 170Nm of maximum torque. The engine will be mated to a CVT unit and perhaps a manual gearbox too.
Expected Launch: Early 2017
Expected Price: Rs. Eight lakh – Rs. 9.Five lakh
7. Fresh Maruti Suzuki Swift
Among Maruti Suzuki’s best-selling hatchback, the fresh Swift will be underpinned by Suzuki’s fresh generation platform. It will receive an extensive makeover both inwards and out and feature a compartively sporty design and improved cabin. However, the fresh Maruti Swift will retain the current model’s 1.2-litre K Series petrol and 1.3-litre MJD diesel engines. For transmission, it will be suggested with a choice inbetween a 5-speed manual and an AMT.
Expected Price: Rs. Five lakh – Rs. Eight lakh
9. Fresh Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire
Expected Launch: Late 2017/ 2018
Expected Price: Rs. Five.Five lakh – Rs. Nine lakh
8. Tata Tigor
The home-grown automaker’s third sub-compact sedan, the Tata Tigor is based on the Tiago hatchback and also features design inputs from the company’s design centres in Pune, Italy, and the UK. Other than a handful of design inputs, the Tata Kite five sedan will also adopt the Tiago’s engines, namely, the 1.2-litre Revotron petrol and the 1.05-litre three-cylinder Revotorq diesel. Transmission duties will primarily be tended to by only a 5-speed manual transmission with the introduction of an AMT tooled variant reserved for the future.
Expected Price: Rs. Four.Five lakh – Rs. Five.Five lakh
9. Tata Nexon SUV
Tata Motors’ upcoming sub-compact SUV, Nexon, is claimed to have received its design inspiration from the Range Rover Evoque. With that said, the Tata Nexon looks largely similar to the concept except a few elements such as the bumpers and the wheels. The choice of engine on the Nexon will comprise a fresh 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel motor while transmission options will include a 5-speed manual and the F-Tronic AMT in all likelihood.
