Here are the upcoming cars for 2010 and 2011. The data for the upcoming cars has been collected from various sources, including our own understanding and speculations.

1. Honda Brio: -
Expected in 27th September 2011
Estimated price: Rs 4-5 lakh

In country like India, the automobile market is dominated by hatchbacks. Here most of the auto giants who wish to set a firm base in India, are focusing on small car market. Honda tried the same thing with the Jazz, but the expensive price tag didn't work in it's favor. So, Honda now plans to launch a small car for the Indian car market.

Honda had unveiled its small car concept the 2010 Auto Expo, and the company plans to launch this small car in India somewhere around in early 2011. This new small car will be smaller than four meters in length and will get Honda Jazz's 1.2-litre petrol engine to avail the duty cut.

2. Mahindra XUV 500: -

Expected in 29th September 2011
Estimated price: Rs 10-12lakh

The W201 looks huge to begin with. The front end get the now familiar ‘Jeepish’ grille with the walrus tooth in the middle housing the Mahindra logo. The headlamps on the other hand are large clear lens units and to comply with European norms, this new Mahindra will sport LED daytime running lamps. The rakish hood merges smoothly into windscreen which in itself is a large unit.

Looking at the rather slim A-pillar, the new Mahindra is sure to offer good visibility. In profile the very high ground clearance is clearly visible. The ORVMs sport indicators and the pull type door handles too are unique to this SUV. At the back, the door is hinged at one end. The spare wheel will be housed under the body. The W201 will feature a two-tone interior with a twin pod instrument panel. The centre console will get controls for automatic climate control as well as a display for sat-nav and the video out from the reversing camera.

Steering mounted controls will also be a part of the package and so will premium features like rain sensing wipers and AC vents for all three rows. Under the bonnet could be a retuned version of the 2.2-litre common rail unit mated to a 6-speed manual. Automatics will also be offered for international markets. A shift-on-the-fl y 4WD version is also expected.

3.  Hyundai Ha/Eon: -

Expected in October 2011
Estimated price: Rs 2.5-3.5lakh

Hyundai in India has had a brilliant innings. The Santro was a success story and so is the i10! Now however there’s a new car coming. Due for launch late this year or latest by the Auto Expo next year, the HA or also being called as the Eon by some, will be Hyundai’s most affordable car yet. It will replace the aging Santro and after its launch in India will also be exported to market where the current Santro is being sold.

The HA or Eon might be small, but let’s be clear that it’s not going to compete with the Nano. The hatchback which is yet to acquire a name officially, will be larger, more modern and will have better ride and handling than the Tata. In fact, its true competition would be the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Alto and the Chevy Spark.

The HA is based on a heavily modified Santro Xing platform. However its looks are going to be all new. The HA is designed in tune with the new design philosophy at Hyundai. The front end gets the hexagonal grille, which is now the new global face of all Hyundais. Meanwhile large headlights and clamp type bonnet ensure a large bug eyed look. While foglamps will not be a standard fitment, the HA will have recesses so that owners can have them fitted if they wanted to. In profile, the HA gets a rather sweeping shoulder line and comes devoid of a quarter glass on the rear door. This gives it a sportier look. Also, in profile the car looks almost as big as the Santro. Powering the car will be a new three-cylinder, 800cc petrol engine, which is expected to rack up the numbers for the HA.

4. Skoda Rapid: -

Expected in October 2011
Estimated price: Rs 7-10 lakhs

Skoda is all set to launch its all new sedan, Rapid (also known as Lauretta). The Skoda Rapid will be based on the Fabia platform and will be competition to the Volkswagen Vento, its distinct cousin, the Honda City, the Fiat Linea, the Hyundai Verna and the Ford Fiesta. Our sources confirm that this car will be launched sometime in late October 2011.

We believe the Rapid will get the 1.6-litre petrol mill from the Volkswagen engine stable, and probably even the 1.6-litre TD CR engine recently introduced on the VW Vento. There have been rumours about a new Skoda Octavia being designed for the Indian car market. It isn’t the Octavia, it’s this all new sedan which is being designed for India.

The Skoda Rapid should be priced in the 7-10lakh range. Watch out this space for more updates on the new Skoda sedan.


5. Chevrolet New MPV: -

Expected in Late 2011
Estimated price: Rs 5-7lakh

General Motors had announced that it will launch a few products from the SAIC Motor stable. To start off with, they will launch vehicles from the Wilung line-up which includes the CN-100 which is likely to compete with the Mahindr Xylo.
The new CN-100 is likely to be priced between Rs 5-7lakh and will be manufactured in GM’s Talegaon plant. This is expected to be powered by the 1.3-litre multijet engine and since it is sourced from China, the production cost is expected to be low.

The MPV will be 7-8 seater and can be great competition for the Xylo considering its pricing. Looking at the pictures of the interior, one can see it has black and beige dual tone interiors and an aftermarket stereo. It rides on 175/65/R14 tyres and it gets features like power windows and the ORVMS are manually-adjustable.

We believe the CN-100 has flexible rear seating as the second and third row of seats can be folded flat. GM might target the passenger and taxi market with the MPV and we expect the car to be launched by the end of this year.
