Since SUVs were taking over the change in the world around, sedans might not have gained the demand of popularity as they once did. But, they have an aspirational status in India, and due to this segment being alive in the market, a set of new sedans are being launched in 2022. The sedans launching are from luxurious Mercedes-Maybach S-class to more affordable budget-friendly midsize Skoda Slavia and VW Virtus sedans.
So here are the top five sedans lined up to launch in India in 2022.
This car is the replacement for the aging rapid. The next-gen Rapid is called the Slavia. This car is considered to be larger than the current Rapid, and it is expected to make a best-in-segment wheelbase. This sedan has a feature like wireless charging, connected with the car tech, ventilated seats, and 6 airbags, and an audio system with a subwoofer. This beautiful sedan is launching in February 2022 with a price range between Rs.12-15 lakh.
This Toyota Camry was globally updated with a mid-life facelift last year. The updates on the facelift were primarily cosmetic with a newly designed bumper, new alloy wheels, and redesigned LED tail lamps. In technical terms, the Camry facelift remains unchanged as it carries a 2.5-liter petrol engine paired to the electric motor and has an output of 218p. This car is set to launch in the middle of 2022 and has a price range of Rs.35-40 lakh with a 2.5P hybrid engine.
This beauty is set to replace the decade-old Vento. The Volkswagen Virtus will be a sister model of Skoda Slavia, and just like the Slavia, it will be larger than the model it is going to replace. This sedan bodes well for the amount of cabin space. As it will be similar to the Taigun, features like a 19-inch touchscreen, a fully digital instrument cluster, ventilated front seats, and auto headlights and wipers can be expected. This car is set to unveil in February 2022 with a market introduction in April end and has an expected price range of 12-15 lakh.
Mercedes is all set to bring its range-topper Maybach S-Class soon. This Maybach S-Class prioritizes comfort and space and has some extra space that goes towards making the rear seats as spacious as possible. The stand-out features of this Mercedes class are the new grille, alloy wheels, larger rear doors. This Maybach S-Class is set to launch in early 2022 with a price range of Rs.2.08 crores.
This Honda city hybrid will be the first mass-market hybrid car to go on sale in India in 2022. It has standard and sportier-looking RS guises. The hybrid setup on this car allows it to run in the EV mode or just the engine of a combination of both. This hybrid has a powertrain that comprises 98p and has an integrated starter generator. It will launch in February 2022 with a starting range of Rs.15-18 lakh.
