This list gives you an insight into the new upcoming small cars slated for launch in the coming years.
We Indians have a penchant for small cars and our obsession for it is not coming to an end anytime soon. Much before Tata envisaged developing a ‘laktakiya’ car and inspiring Renault to follow suit with Kwid, India got its first official ‘small car’ the iconic 800 model. Sadly, all good things have to come to an end and so did the 800 car, but its lineage lives on with the Alto 800, a much modern rendition of the original model.
With Tiago breaking the norms with unconventional styling, carmakers are attempting to match the bar raised by this home make. As we are ready to enter into a new financial year, we bring you a list of upcoming small cars in India expected to be priced in the vicinity of Rs 3 lakh to Rs 5 lakh. So if you are planning to upgrade from a two-wheeler to a four-wheeler, or pondering to switch your old car with a new one, this list gives you an insight into the new upcoming small cars slated for launch in the coming years.
Tata is betting big on its stellar model Tiago and is planning to roll-out more derivatives in future. Codenamed Tiago 4, the Aktiv version is expected to be launched as kit edition, though Tata could retain the model permanently if it receives good response from customers. While there will be no radical changes, the Aktiv version is likely to get additional accessory package that will include body cladding, roof rails, side stickers, sportier bumper, alloy wheels and silver painted skid plate at the rear.
Features such as fog lamps with DRLs, illuminated logo, puddle lamp, door visors, sunroof and lots of chrome treatment will also be on offer. The vehicle will get new equipment on the inside. There will be new seat covers, window shades cushion and reading light. Power will continue to come from the 1.2-litre Revotron petrol and 1.05-litre Revotorq oil burner from the standard model. The former makes 84bhp with 114Nm, and the latter one delivers 69bhp with 140Nm.
Expected Price: Rs 4.50 lakh to Rs 5.05 lakh
Expected Launch: Coming Months
