At the beginning of this financial year 2016-2017, we have witnessed several exciting car launches in the Indian car market. With several new cars and facelifts scheduled, automakers aim to end this fiscal on a high note. Compared to the last year, car makers have performed well with revised models and a few new additions. We bring you a summary of upcoming cars in India in Rs 5 lakh – 10 lakh that we think are worth waiting.
Toyota is planning to introduce its global hatchback – Toyota Yaris – in the Indian car market. The small car will be launched as a premium hatch, which will rival the Hyundai Elite i20, Maruti Baleno and the Honda Jazz. It is expected to be positioned above the Etios Liva hatchback, which failed to live up the company expectations. As a reminder, the Japanese automaker will also be launching the Vios sedan, which will be based on the Yaris platform. The premium hatch is expected to come in both petrol and diesel fuel options. The petrol version is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre unit that will also power the Vios. This motor will be tuned to offer higher fuel efficiency and performance. On the other hand, the oil burner is likely to be a 1.4-litre unit that is good for 90bhp of power and 200Nm of torque. Transmission options are likely to include a 5-speed manual and a CVT automatic unit. The company will launch the next generation Yaris hatchback, which will be based on Toyota’s New Generation Platform. It will get aggressive front fascia that accommodates chrome grille, projector headlamps and LED DRLs. Feature list include touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, start-stop button, multi-functional steering wheel, ABS with EBD, brake assist, rear parking camera, etc.
