Upcoming Automatic Cars in India 2020-21 Expected Price, Launch Dates, Mileage, Specifications

The automobile industry is currently trying to return to normal as the Coronavirus pandemic continues to haunt the world. In India, car manufacturers have been looking forward and have been trying to put some positive into the economy. With a large number of new cars listed and expected to be launched in the coming months, interested buyers can also have something to look forward to. While manual transmission cars are considered as standard in the country, automatic vehicles have been putting up a solid fight and have the potential of overtaking the manual segment. Automatic transmission cars are not only easier to drive, but they also give more people a chance to drive their favourite cars without having to worry about physically switching form one gear to the next. Although the working of an automatic car might look simple, it is far from it. The specialized sensors in the car help make the decision of whether or not to change gears and it all depends on the speed the car is travelling at. So, without further ado, here are the upcoming automatic cars in India for 2020 and 2021.

Volvo S60 2020

Expected Launch15 August, 2020
Engine2.0L 4-Cylinder Turbo Petrol
Transmission8-Speed Automatic

In an industry that is consumed by a sudden trend of SUV enthusiasm, the 2020 Volvo S60 is more a breath of fresh air that one might think. Although this sedan is based on the same platform as its 7-seater compatriot – the XC90, the new S60 offers the old-school customer so much more. For starters, the car is powered only by petrol engines and will not use diesel as an option anytime soon. There are hybrid options though, that could find the interest of some buyers. Currently, in the UK, Volvo offers the 2020 S60 in a total of 5 variants – all of which will now house a BSVI-compliant 2.0L 4-cylinder Turbo-petrol engine. The T4 and T5 variants will offer 190bhp and 250bhp respectively as well as automatic transmission and Front-Wheel-Drive. A 306bhp All-Wheel-Drive T6 engine is also available while a couple of T8 petrol and plug-in hybrid engines offering 400bhp complete the list. How many of these variants will actually make it to India is unknown but we can at least expect the T4 and T5 models to feature this year. While Volvo is a company that has been releasing cars regularly since 2014, most of the models feature similar exteriors as well as interiors and that trend carried over to the 2020 S60 as well. A touchscreen panel is fitted into the center console in portrait style which is easy to use and helps control the car settings quicker. In terms of audio, the car houses a Bowers & Wilkins stereo setup that provides top-quality sound. The rest of the interiors include leather-clad seats, a leather steering wheel, digital dashboard and instrument cluster, air condition vents, and power windows among others.

Tata Gravitas

Tata Gravitas
Expected Launch10 September, 2020
Engine2.0L Diesel, 1.6L Petrol
Transmission6-Speed Manual, 6-Speed Automatic

Unveiled at the Auto Expo 2020, the Tata Gravitas is expected to be the flagship model above the similar looking Harrier. Tata is also expected to price the Gravitas at about Rs. 1 lakh above the price of the Harrier. The Gravitas will come with LED DRLs mounted into the front bumper along with auto dimming IRVM. The SUV will also come with new 17-inch alloy wheels which will give it a premium look. While the Gravitas does look like the Harrier in many ways, the former gets an extra row of seats thanks to its extended overhand in the rear. In the rear, the Gravitas also gets a bigger quarter glass, new LED taillights, a wider windscreen, and a new bumper when compared to the Harrier. Powering the Gravitas will be an upgraded BSVI-compliant 2.0L diesel engine that is capable of producing 170Ps of power and 350Nm of torque. There is also talk about Tata releasing a 1.6L petrol engine for the Gravitas which will be included in the coming months. In the transmission department, the Gravitas is expected to come with a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard or can also be had with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Some of the other features of the Gravitas include an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 9-speaker audio system, and automatic air conditioning.

Given the fact that SUVs are a huge selling point in India, the upcoming Audi RS Q8 is destined to stand out for all the right reasons. Everything from the RS Q8’s looks to its unbelievable performance is something we should all be excited about when it is finally launched in the country. Powering the RS Q8 is a 4.0L Twin-Turbo V8 petrol engine that produces an impressive 591Ps of power and 590Nm of torque. Mated to the massive engine is an 8-speed Tiptronic automatic gearbox that offers All-Wheel-Drive capabilities.

There is also an 8.6-inch touchscreen display that handles the RS Q8’s automatic climate control seamlessly. Some of the other features include heated seats, adaptive climate control, 22-inch wheels, and a Bang and Olufsen audio setup. Audi is a manufacturer that delivers everything from high-quality interiors to a superior driving performance in a stylish and premium designed car with the RS Q8. Thanks to the popularity Audi already has in India, we can expect the RS Q8 to do exceedingly well in the country when it is finally launched this year.

Maruti Swift 2020

Maruti Swift 2020
Expected Launch15 September, 2020
Engine1.2L DualJet Petrol
Transmission5-Speed Manual, 5-Speed Automatic

The Swift is probably one of the most sold cars in the Maruti Suzuki lineup and it comes as no surprise that the expected 2020 variant has been gaining a lot of hype. The hatchback is also one of the most promising cars available outside India with the facelift already launched in Japan. The new Swift 2020 is expected to be powered by a 1.2L DualJet petrol engine that is capable of generating up to 90Ps of power and 113Nm of torque.

Mahindra eKUV100

Mahindra eKUV100
Expected Launch16 September, 2020
Battery15.9kWh

When launched, the Mahindra KUV was an exciting prospect for those buyers looking for a micro-SUV. Now, the company is set to launch the electric variant called the eKUV 100 which is Mahindra’s answer to a cleaner, healthier planet. The car is expected to feature a similar powertrain as the concept Mahindra eVerito which was unveiled at the 2018 Auto Expo. Powering the eKUV 100 will be a 15.9kWh Lithium-ion battery that will give the compact SUV a range of 147 Kms on a full battery. According to the company, the car will have fast charging capabilities that will take the battery from 0-80 percent in a single hour. Mahindra is expected to include a number of upgraded features in the eKUV100 such as location tracking, parking sensors in the rear, over speeding alert, ABS with EBD, dual airbags in the front, and cabin precooling.

KIA will introduce India to its first compact SUV – the Sonet. Introduced first at the Auto Expo 2020, the Sonet is ready now to take on some of its biggest competitors. Many of the Sonet’s features match those of the Hyundai Venue, however, there are some major points that differentiate the two. The first thing you notice about the Sonet is its muscular design and sharp features on the front. Going inside, the Sonet is expected to come with some high-quality, plush interiors including, leatherette upholstery, a massive 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, various drive modes, a 360-degree camera, and a Bose audio setup. Powering the Sonet will be the same engine options found on the Venue including a 1.0L Turbo-petrol, a 1.2L petrol, and a 1.5L diesel.

Lexus UX

Lexus UX
Expected Launch4 October, 2020
Engine2.0L Petrol Hybrid
TransmissionCVT Automatic

Lexus officially unveiled the UX SUV back in 2018 at the Geneva Motor Show and was instantly pitted against some of the biggest names in the segment including the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the BMW X1, and the Audi Q3. Unlike its concept designs, the UX looks a little more realistic and sleeker. The arrow-shaped LED DRLs found on all Lexus retain their place while the front grille now comes with a block-shape to it. The wheels are sized between 17-18 inches depending on the variant of the SUV. At the back, the UX SUV will come with 120 LED lights that make up the connected taillight arrangement. Under the hood, the Lexus UX will come with a 2.0L Hybrid-Petrol engine that is expected to produce 178Ps of power and should come mated to the E-CVT automatic transmission system that has been teased for some time now. The Lexus UX will be based on the newest GA-C platform or the Global Architecture-C platform that was initially showcased on some of the latest Toyota models as the TNGA or Toyota New Global Architecture platform. This platform offers more rigidity to the frame and has a lower center of gravity for a more controlled driving experience.

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan

Mercedes-Benz A-Class Sedan

EngineTurbocharged Petrol, 1.5L Turbocharged Diesel
Transmission7-Speed Dual-Clutch Automatic

While Mercedes has already announced and is successfully selling the LWB (Long Wheel Base) version of the A-Class Sedan in China exclusively, the company did confirm that India will also get the pleasure of driving the A-Class sometime in 2020. We still don’t know whether we will get the exclusive LWB variant from China or the standard variant but since the LWB version of the E-Class did exceedingly well in the country, our bets are on the LWB A-Class making it over into India as well. Powering the upcoming A-Class sedan will be a BSVI-compliant, 1330cc Turbocharged petrol engine that offers 163PS of power and 250Nm of torque, and is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. There is another version that houses a BSVI-complaint 1.5L Turbocharged diesel engine that is capable of generating 116Ps of power and 260Nm of torque. The diesel engine is also paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission. When launched, the A-Class Sedan will most likely take on cars like the BMW 1 Series and the Audi A3 which are already high-selling cars in the market.

Audi Q3 2020

Audi Q3 2020
Expected Launch10 October, 2020
Engine2.0L Turbo-Petrol

When it comes to SUVs from Audi, the Q3 has always delivered and the Q3 2020 is destined to bring a lot more to the table as well. The design of the upcoming Q3 2020 is relatively the same as its previous iteration. The front grille is large and hexagonal with vertical chrome stripes and the Audi branding. The large air dams sit below the new LED headlamps which now come in a sharper design. In the rear, the LED taillights have also be changed with almost a Lamborghini look to it. Powering the Q3 2020 will be a 2.0L, 4-cylinder Turbocharged-petrol engine that generates 228Ps of power and 258Nm of torque.

The Audi Q3 2020 will also carry some of the best safety features including 8 airbags, power locking, ABS with EBD, and rear parking cameras.

Volkswagen Passat 2020

Volkswagen Passat 2020
Expected Launch10 October, 2020
Engine2.0L Turbocharged Petrol
Transmission6-Speed Automatic

Volkswagen is a company that has always delivered some of the most reliable cars in the market and the Passat 2020 looks to be following in that pathway. The Passat is already being considered as one of the finest sedans in the country and it hasn’t even been launched yet. Under the hood of the Passat sits a 2.0L Turbocharged petrol engine that produces an impressive 174Ps of power and 206Nm of torque. Paired to the powerful engine is a 6-speed automatic transmission which is also combined with Front Wheel Drive capabilities. In terms of looks, the Passat 2020 comes with a sleek design and a muscular bonnet. The front grille is sharp and has chrome slats horizontally across the front of the car. The LED headlamps are rectangular in shape while the rear of the car is more angular. The inside of the Passat is spacious and comfortable, like most Volkswagen cars.

There is a secondary 8.0-inch navigation screen that is connected to a premium audio setup.

Mercedes-Benz GLB

Mercedes-Benz GLB
Expected Launch15 October, 2020
Engine2.0L Petrol, 2.0L Diesel
Transmission8-Speed Dual-Clutch Automatic

The Mercedes-Benz GLB will be a compact SUV that will hit Indian markets sometime in October 2020. The car sits between the GLA and GLC models and takes its looks from both of them. It is expected that the GLB will come with both 5 and 7 seat options and will be available in 2 Editions. Both variants will come with 2.0L BSVI-complaint petrol and diesel engine options which will be mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. On the inside, the GLB is said to feature a boxy dashboard with a large touchscreen MBUX-included infotainment system as well as a digital instrument cluster for complete control while driving.

Audi e-tron

Audi e-tron
Expected Launch25 October, 2020
PowerDual Electric Motor with 95kWh Lithium-Ion Battery
Range400 Km

While Audi is known for their sports cars and luxury sedans, the e-tron is their first shot at an all-electric vehicle and was first made public in 2018. The car is set to hit Indian roads sometime in 2020 and a used car evaluation tool can be used to easily get your hands on one when it launches. The e-tron will get its power from a large 95kWh Lithium-Ion battery that will run the dual electric motor setup. The 561Nm of torque produced by the motors will take the e-tron from 0-100 kmph in just 6.6 seconds. With Boost Mode on, that number is significantly reduced to 5.7 seconds which is better than some regular cars in the market right now. On a full charge, the battery of the e-tron is said to provide a range of over 400 km and comes with a quick charge feature that takes the vehicle from 0-80 per cent in about 30 minutes.

Audi Q7 2020

The Audi Q7 2020 will take the place of the previous Q7 SUV in India and it is expected to come loaded with features and a performance that will be very hard to match. Under the hood of the upcoming Q7 2020 will either be a BSVI-compliant 2.0L TFSI petrol engine that will produce 248Ps of power and 273Nm of torque or a 3.0L TFSI petrol engine that generates 335Ps of power with 369Nm of torque.

Citroen C5 Aircross

Citroen C5 Aircross
Expected Launch2 November, 2020

Transmission8-Speed Automatic

Although Citroen isn’t a familiar name in the Indian automobile market, the French carmaker has been producing some exquisite vehicles over the years. The C5 Aircross is one of the best-looking SUVs right now and will be a slotting into one of the most competitive segments in India when it is officially launched. Powering the C5 Aircross is a 2.0L diesel engine that will be able to generate 176Ps of power and 400Nm of torque. Citroen has also announced that the C5 Aircross will come with a 1.6L Tubro-petrol engine option that is capable of producing 180Ps of power and 250Nm of torque.

Engine2.4L Diesel
Transmission8-Speed Automatic

The Mitsubishi Pajero Sport 2020 is the upgrade of one of the most used cars in the brand’s lineup – the original Pajero which was released in 2012. Based on the “Dynamic Shield” design by the company, the SUV will be made bigger and sturdier than before. The grille of the Pajero Sport 2020 is sleek and new as is the new headlamp that is now in a split design rather than a solid one. On the rear too, the car will feature new taillights that have a slim profile and LED graphics. Finally in the exterior department, the bumpers get a few tweaks which will give the car a sportier look. In the power department, the Pajero Sport 2020 will house a BSVI-compliant 2.4L diesel engine that produces 181Ps of power and 430Nm of torque and will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Porsche Taycan

Porsche Taycan
Expected Launch15 November, 2020
EngineDual Electric Motors
Range480 Km
Battery93.4kWh Lithium-Ion Battery

As the world slowly, but surely, moves towards implementing electric vehicles into their lives on a daily basis, Porsche has finally decided to enter the discussion with their own take on the matter – the Porsche Taycan. The first EV from the German manufacturer and it is a beauty, not to mention, quite the performer as well. The car will be available in 2 options; the Turbo and the Turbo S. Both cars will house a large 93.4 kWh Lithium-Ion battery that will provide power to the dual electric motors attached on the front and rear axles. While the Turbo will produce 670 horsepower, the Turbo S is set to produce an impressive 750 horsepower. The Taycan will also be the first EV to feature a 2-speed transmission which will make getting to faster speeds easier and a lot more fun. The more powerful Turbo S is capable of reaching 0-100kmph in under 3 seconds and has a top speed of 250kmph. Both the variants offer a range of about 480km which is more than just impressive – it is definitely one of the best EV available right now and could have a lot of people preparing their RC transfer papers soon.

In terms of looks, the Taycan has a sleek and sturdy design that screams ‘sporty’ in every possible way. The front of the car looks resoundingly familiar as it has a mix of the iconic 911 and 718 features combined perfectly. The car does get newly shaped LED headlamps along with a new bumper and larger air dams while the rear features new, larger taillights and a sportier bumper as well. The inside of the car is, as expected fitted with luxurious leather seats, a leather steering wheel, a digital dashboard, a touchscreen infotainment system, TFT control panels, and heightened safety features that include airbags for the front and rear seats.

DC TCA

Expected Launch1 December, 2020
Engine3.8L V6 Petrol
Transmission6-Speed Automatic

Earlier at the Auto Expo 2018, DC Design showcased their latest sports model named the TCA. The TCA, as we already discussed stands for Titanium, Carbon, and Aluminum which happen to be the materials that were used in the construction of the car. The TCA is styled according to the Pagani Zonda and the LaFerrari which are the ultimate sports cars in the market right now. The platform of the upcoming TCA is basically a modified version of the one found on the DC Avanti, however, the TCA is longer, wider, and lower than the Avanti. Powering the upcoming TCA will be a 3.8L V6 petrol engine that will generate 320Ps of power and will be mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission system. This is expected to be a massive attraction as the Avanti only came with a manual gearbox. In terms of speed, DC has claimed that the TCA will be able to go from 0-100 Kmph in an impressive 4.5 seconds which is not the quickest, but it is fast for Indian roads. One of the biggest attractions of the TCA is the fact that DC has stated that they will only make 299 units of the car with bookings already being made currently.

Hyundai Ioniq

DC TCA
Expected Launch1 December, 2020
Battery28kWh Lithium-Ion
Range280 Km

Back in 2018, Hyundai unveiled the Ioniq electric and hybrid models which took the world by storm. Later, Hyundai also showcased a plug-in hybrid variant which will most likely not make its appearance in India. As of the latest news, only the electric variant will be brought to India and will be one of the best options in the segment. Hyundai has fitted a decent 28kWh Lithium-Ion battery into the Ioniq which is expected to charge from 0-100 percent in about 9-10 hours. However, Hyundai will also include a quick charge option that will significantly reduce the charge time to about 4-5 hours. When the Ioniq’s battery is completely charged, it is expected to have a maximum range of 280 Kms which is rather impressive. In terms of design, the Ioniq electric car will come with a hexagonal grille that will give it a sleek, sharp look. The LED headlamps and LED DRLs will keep the Ioniq updated. The use of aluminum in the boot lid will make the Ioniq up to 25 percent lighter than some of the other Hyundai cars available today. In the features department, the Ioniq will come with a 7-inch instrument cluster as well as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Safety will be a major attraction for the Ioniq with 7 airbags, adaptive cruise control, autonomous braking, lane change assist, and blind spot detection.

Tata EVision Electric

Tata EVision Electric
Expected Launch1 December, 2020
Top Speed200 Kmph
Range300+ Kms

Based on Tata’s OMEGA architecture, the EVision Electric is a concept car that, as the name suggests, runs on electricity. It is the first sedan that was announced under the Impact 2.0 design structure. Based on what was discussed, the EVision will feature one electric motor on each axle as well as a battery pack that is fitted into the floor. This design feature not only creates more space in the car, but keeps the center of gravity low to the ground for superior control. It is estimated that the car, on a single charge, will run for up to 350-420 Kms which is far better than any EV available today. The top speed of the EVision is said to be set at around 200 Kmph which should be enough to take on most sedans in the segment.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2020

Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2020
Expected Launch10 December, 2020
Engine2.0L Turbocharged Petrol, 3.0L Diesel
Transmission9-Speed Automatic

Considered as the discounted S-Class, the upcoming E-Class 2020 carries all the luxury but leaves behind the hefty price tag from the most premium sedan from Mercedes-Benz. The body of the upcoming E-Class looks quite similar to the previous iteration but there are a few upgrades and new inclusions. The brake lights are now wider than they used to be on the older E-Class and the headlamps also get brand new LED lights in them. The alloy wheels have also been redesigned. The front grille has also been changed up a bit with the standard version getting a curved up design whereas the AMG variants get a more aggressive-looking swept down grille design. On the AMG variants, Mercedes has also included “power domes” or bulges on the bonnet that give the car a deeper sound when revving the engine. Under the hood, the new E-Class 2020 comes with a BSVI-compliant 2.0L Inline 4petrol engine that is capable of generating 255Ps of power and 273Nm of torque and is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission gearbox. There is also a BSVI-complaint 3.0L V6 diesel engine that will produce 362Ps of power and 369Nm of torque along with a 9-speed automatic gearbox. Inside, the E-Class 2020 will come with dual 10-inch touchscreen displays which can be upgraded to larger, 12-inch displays. Some of the other features include “Hey Mercedes” voice assistant, 360-degree surround-view camera, blind-spot monitoring, and all the other high-tech equipment you can expect from a Mercedes-Benz premium sedan.

Aston Martin DBX

Aston Martin DBX
Expected Launch15 December, 2020
EngineAMG 4.0L Twin-Turbo V8 Petrol, 5.2L Twin-Turbo V12 Petrol

We normally associate Aston Martin with top-tier sedans and sports cars, but they have finally entered the SUV segment with the Aston Martin DBX. It was initially announced back in November, 2018 and is set to be launched in India in 2020. The SUV will directly compete with the likes of the Lamborghini Urus outside the country and will be priced at about 3.50 Crore. The DBX will be imported from the new and only factory specifically designed for the SUV in Wales. Belonging to the lineup of the ‘Second Century Plan’ of Aston Martin’s subsidiary brand Legondo, the DBX should come with a plethora of new features and electronics from Mercedes. Under the hood, the DBX will most probably house the BSVI-compliant version of the AMG 4.0L twin-turbo V8 petrol engine, also from Mercedes-Benz with the current BSVI-compliant 5.2L twin-turbo V12 engine likely to feature on later models. There are some rumours about a third engine variant that could see the DBX running on a hybrid motor in the future.

Expected Launch15 December, 2020
Engine1.5L In-Line Petrol
Transmission6-Speed Manual, 6-Speed Automatic

MG has already made its presence known with the premium SUV Hector that has instantly become one of the most popular SUV cars in the country. However, the Hector might not be the only SUV coming out of the MG brand name as the company has announced that the Baojun 510 will be launched in India very soon. Now, Baojun and MG are brands that fall under the SAIC umbrella which is why the Hector can be found under the name Baojun 530 in many countries outside India. Given the fact that they share so much, the Baojun 510 is designed almost identically to the Hector, however, it is a little smaller in size. Powering the Baojun 510 will be a 1.5L In-Line S-TEC III petrol engine that will generate 115Ps of power and 146Nm of torque. The SUV will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic gearbox as an option. Even though the Baojun 510 was first announced back in 2016, it is only just about to be released and launched in India. In terms of features, the Baojun 510 carries the same “Future Eye” LED DRLs found on the Hector which gives the car an aggressive look. There is also a twin-light arrangement of the headlamps which looks exactly like what is found on the Hector. Inside, the Baojun 510 features a dual-tone, black and light-brown colour scheme which actually gives it a rich look. Safety is MG’s primary concern which is why the Baojun 510 comes with airbags in the front and side, a dynamic stability control system, ABS with EBD, and parking cameras in the rear. If technology is what you’re after, MG supplies a lot and the Baojun 510 features it with style. There is an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, automatic climate control, push-button ignition, auto cruise, keyless entry, and a semi-open panoramic sunroof.
