Auto manufacturers displayed a number of innovative SUVs that will go on sale already when the season is out at the 2023 Auto Expo. Several manufacturers have also revealed their ambitions for the Indian market, which is another factor. Here is a rundown of the leading 5 newest SUVs that will be launched in India in 2023.
SUZUKI JIMNY 4×4
At the 2023 Auto Expo, Maruti Suzuki presented the 5-door Jimny luxury SUV. By placing a deposit of Rs 25,000, prospective purchasers may reserve the redesigned Jimny electronically or at authorised NEXA showrooms. The latter quarter of 2023 is when the redesigned prototype is anticipated to debut. It is modelled on the chassis of the 3-door Jimny Sierra, which is offered in a few overseas countries. A 1.5-liter K15B combustion engine that generates 103 horsepower and 134 Nm of performance powers the SUV. There are two different powertrain options: a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed torque converter conventional. It has a low-range transmission gear arrangement with ALLGRIP Pro 44.
The redesigned Fronx Crossover will go on circulation in the following several months, according to Maruti Suzuki. SUV reservations have officially begun, with a nominal fee of Rs 11,000 per vehicle. The revolutionary Fronx, which will be offered through NEXA showrooms, will compete with the Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, Hyundai Venue 1.0, and Kia Sonet 1.0. It will have two powertrain choices: a 100 horsepower, 1.0 litre accelerated powertrain and an 89 horsepower, 1.2 litre DualJet petrol powertrain with clever hybrid technology. There are three different transmission options: a regular 5-speed manual, an AMT with 1.2L, and a 6-speed torque converter automated with 1.0L turbo fuel.
MAHINDRA THAR 5-DOOR
The 1.5L turbocharged diesel and 2.2L turbocharged petrol engines for Mahindra’s Thar RWD variant are both newly released. A new 5-door Thar is also being developed; it’s scheduled to debut in the middle of 2023. A larger wheelbase and increased interior space are features of the redesigned edition. Comparing to the current 3-door version, it will be extremely useful. A 2.2L turbo diesel and a 2.0L turbocharger petrol engine will both be available for the forthcoming SUV.
HYUNDAI MICRO SUV
Hyundai, a Korean carmaker, is also creating the Ai3 mini SUV specifically for the Indian industry. It would be built on the K1 framework used by the company to build the Santro and the Hyundai Casper compact SUV. The Grand i10 Nios’s furnishings and powertrain choices will be shared by the next generation. A 1.2-liter NA combustion engine with conventional and AMT transmission choices will power it. Additionally, a CNG version of the new small SUV will be available. The compact SUV will compete with vehicles like the Tata Punch and Citroen C3.
