Experience the grandeur and oomph that only the SUVs can provide!
If you are a car nerd or somebody for whom the realm of the automobile industry plays a key role, then your next big stop in the coming days should be the AutoExpo. Anything else would not suffice! The AutoExpo ( all set for Feb 2020) is India’s premier car event so to speak, an amalgamation of the very best and latest in the sphere of automobile technology and new car launches.
We all have our favorites, while some love the elegance and performance that the sedans bring to the forefront of the driving experience, those who are smitten by the love of driving something powerful will not look beyond the feistiness of an SUV.
That being said, which SUVs have the potential to be some of the best present at AutoExpo 2020? We bring you 5 interesting and robust machines at the upcoming AutoExpo:
Maruti Brezza Facelift
The Maruti Suzuki Brezza has been a popular mid-segment SUV in the often cluttered Indian car market. So what’s new? Well, time to embrace the all new Brezza facelift Hybrid powered by a 1.5 liter, 4-cylinder mild-hybrid engine.
In fact, the same engine is also present in another Maruti hot-seller, the Ertiga. Apart from the Brezza facelift, among the most important SUVs at Auto Expo 2020, the S-cross, in either the petrol or diesel engine might also be introduced in the event.
Mahindra Thar Facelift
For some reason, it was remarked that the Thar was going to be this sturdy SUV that would fit the picturesque albeit rocky terrain of a desert upon its arrival in India. The limiting of Thar to only one terrain renders it misunderstood.
Today, one can’t imagine an Indian road, regardless of it being a highway or a busy crossing without the powerful SUV offering from one of India’s most-revered carmakers.
While Thar was your drive to immense power, make space for the Thar Facelift. Among the most widely-anticipated SUVs at Auto Expo 2020, it is another noteworthy attempt by the famous Mahindra group to maintain its reputation as a solid deliverer of the great robust SUV.
The B6S compliant vehicle will be offered in both soft and hardtop roof options, plus the all-new touchscreen infotainment system makes it truly a 21st-century wagon in the mold of technology, a critical aspect that governs the overall driving experience of contemporary cars.
Unquestionably among the most anticipated SUVs at Auto Expo 2020, the Carnival is Kia’s bold attempt to make a statement through the MPV, available in both 6-seater and 7-seater arrangements.
Some of the captivating features that have already made the Carnival one heck of a carnival are the dual panel electric sunroof and the one-touch power sliding door. The Tiger nose grille stands out but only as a design feature that adds sharpness to the look of the machine.
Let’s be real, this beast has the power to burn not only a hole but a mine in your wallet! But hey, the good things in life don’t come cheap! The Mercedes’ much-respected GLS is the pinnacle of space and comfort; exemplified by a rich array of unique offerings, including the 9G-Tronic transmission, the mighty engine yielding an impressively low fuel consumption, the 20-inch wheelbase, the impressively designed long bonnet, and whatnot.
An exemplary melange of styling and comfort, the hefty new Mercedes-Benz offering cuts an impressive car performance figure.
One of the most important launches of this year, the Volkswagen T-Roc is one of the celebrated German carmaker’s latest offerings in India for the new year. Although, the big exciting car is slated to arrive around June- as per news reports- the massive unveiling in the much-anticipated AutoExpo 2020 is slated to only double the interest of the car priced at around INR 15 Lakhs.
That said, the T-Roc is expected to compete against the likes of Tata Nexon, Toyota Innova Crysta, Tata Hexa, Tata Harrier, and others.
The T-Roc, it ought to be shared, was first unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2017, but according to reports, it will be offered as a CBU, i.e., a completely built unit in India and for the process of homologation, business reports suggest nearly 2,500 units are already being imported into the country.
It is expected that the T-Rock will be launched in a 1.5-liter TSI EVO as well as a 2.0-liter TDI Diesel engine in the country.
