Here is a list of 5 globally popular cars which we are waiting to be launched in India, but are not launching –
This is undoubtedly the most-awaited SUV in India. In fact, Toyota is not shying away in accepting the growing demand for Rush among Indian buyers. Earlier this year, Toyota officials said that the company is considering the Rush and C-HR crossover for Indian market. So, when it will launch in India? And the answer is a big “NO”. Toyota has joined hands with Suzuki for product sharing and development of new products. Maruti will share the Baleno and the Vitara Brezza to Toyota. The Japanese brand will re-badge the Brezza to enter into the sub-10 lakh rupee space. Adding to it, getting an all-new SUV will require huge investment and Toyota has no plans of making investment in India before 2020.
It was speculated that Ford will launch the Kuga 5-seater premium SUV in India, that didn’t happen. However, Ford has plans to launch a premium SUV which will be positioned between the EcoSport and Endeavour. Similar to Toyota & Suzuki, Ford has joined hands with Mahindra for product development. The American brand will use Mahindra XUV500’s platform to develop a new SUV for Indian market. This SUV will go on sale in India by 2020.
– Toyota Yaris Hatchback
Like Rush, Toyota is not planning to launch the global Yaris hatchback in India. Instead, the Japanese brand will launch re-badged Baleno hatchback in the country.
– Hyundai i30
The i30 is one car which has been spotted multiple times during its test rounds on Indian roads. Interestingly, the company had also showcased the 5-seater premium hatchback at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo. However, the i30 will be pricier for the price sensitive market.
– SsangYong Tivoli
Korean automaker, SsangYong had showcased the Tivoli compact SUV at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo. Since then, rumours were on rife that SsangYong will launch this Hyundai Creta rival in India. In fact, the SUV has already been spotted multiple times during its test rounds. However, the company has no plans of launching this SUV in India. Mahindra is working on a sub-4 meter SUV – codenamed S201 – based on the Tivoli’s X100 platform. This SUV will be launched in India in early 2019.
