Last year, it was expected that Volkswagen would announce the Tiguan 2021 in April, however, that date has been pushed back to October and with it, there look to be some changes in the specifications as well. While it was leaked that the Tiguan 2021 would house a 1.5L Turbo-petrol engine or a 2.0L diesel engine, the latest news says that the SUV will come fitted with the same 2.0L Turbo-petrol engine found on the Tiguan Allspace. The engine already produces 190Ps of power with 320Nm of torque and is mated to a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission.

Mahindra is a brand known for its powerful SUVs and the upcoming XUV700 AX7 is definitely something to look forward to.

The world is slowly but steadily moving towards the electrification of automobiles. Electric Vehicles or EVs have become increasingly popular in countries like the USA, England, Canada, and France, and are majorly used in countries like Norway (74.8%), Iceland (45%), and Sweden (32.2%). India too has been embracing the electric route with electric scooters on an all-time high right now. EV cars are also quite popular and some of the biggest names in the industry already have a few models in their lineup. Hyundai is also entering the game with the upcoming Nexo. The Nexo is expected to be powered by a 120kW electric motor that is expected to generate 163Ps of power and 395Nm of torque. Powering the motor will be Hydrogen fuel cells and a battery pack that will increase the capacity to 135kW. The Nexo has been tested in Europe and it has produced a range of about 600 kms on a single charge, but Hyundai believes that the Nexo could easily have a 1,000 km range in India. Some of the features teased on the Nexo include ventilated front seats, a digital instrument cluster, automatic tailgate, and a sunroof, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, and wireless charging.

While Mercedes-Benz has already revealed the upcoming electric EQA SUV, it is most likely set to hit the Indian market in 2022 with a launch date of mid-October, 2021. The EQA is already available abroad and it is expected that the Indian variant will carry identical or similar specifications and features.

The motor itself is expected to produce 190Ps of power and 375Nm of torque and will have a Front-Wheel-Drive system.

Audi Q5 2021

Expected Launch20 November 2021
Engine2.0L TFSI Turbocharged Petrol
Transmission7-Speed S Tronic DCT Automatic

While Audi had plans to launch the upcoming Q5 2021 SUV sometime in January of this year, the pandemic forced the brand to push back the launch date to November 2021. The SUV has already gained a lot of popularity in other countries around the world like the US and UK and it is expected to bring that same excitement to India when it is finally launched. Powering the Q5 2021 is a BSVI-compliant 2.0L TFSI Turbocharged-petrol engine that is capable of generating 248Ps of power and 273Nm of torque. Mated to the Q5 2021 engine will be a 7-speed S Tronic DCT automatic gearbox that also features Quattro All-Wheel-Drive technology.

Nissan X-Trail

Expected Launch1 December 2021
Engine2.0L Naturally-Aspirated Petrol
TransmissionAutomatic CVT

The Nissan X-Trail is ready to finally make its way over to India sometime in December 2021. Initially, the X-Trail was supposed to launch in India in 2019 but it was delayed and eventually postponed. In the United States of America, the X-Trail is known as the Rogue. This is the third-gen SUV model which was first showcased back in 2016 at the Indian Auto Expo. While there seems to be a number of upgrades and changes, the majority of it looks to be in its exteriors. The bumper, headlamps, grille, and hood get a complete redesign while a large air duct sits below the grille and between the two fog lights. In the rear, the car has new horizontally placed taillights and a new bumper as well. The X-Trail, when launched in India, will come with a 2.0L Naturally-Aspirated petrol engine along with an electric motor that features an automatic CVT or Continuously Variable Transmission. The interiors of the car also get a major upgrade with a touchscreen infotainment system, new AC vents, and a sleek digital dashboard. Although the X-Trail was launched with Nissan’s ProPilot autonomous driving feature, it is unlikely that the Indian model will come with it when launched. The X-Trail is definitely one of the best upcoming SUVs and could get a lot of people excited to get their hands on the vehicle once it is launched in the country.

When Great Wall Motors unveiled the Haval SUV lineup in India at the Auto Expo 2020, no one expected the lineup to gain the kind of popularity it already has. The Vision 2025 was one of the most outstanding SUV offerings from Haval and is expected to come with a plethora of features and specifications that will give it an edge over the competition in the market right now. For starters, the upcoming Vision 2025 was showcased with an AR-HUD or Augmented Reality Heads-Up Display that will turn the windshield into a touchscreen for navigation purposes. Some of the other features included with the Haval Vision 2025 include 5G connectivity, facial recognition, automatic driving modes, auto summon, auto park, and an option to shop while driving. The Haval Vision 2025 will be fitted with large 22-inch alloy wheels. Keeping to the modern theme, Vision 2025 will come with cameras instead of OVRMs. The headlamps and taillights are sleek and bright – not quite like the ones seen on the other Haval SUVs. One of the standout features of Vision 2025 is the 3D car locating feature that helps you find your car in a congested area with a push of a button. The engine specifications have not yet been released by GWM but we can expect a little more information as the launch date draws closer.

Ever since Chinese car manufacturer Great Wall Motors announced that they would be launching their premium SUV lineup, Haval, in India, interested buyers have been anxiously waiting for further news. Now, the Haval H9 is set to make it to Indian shores by March 2021 and it could put up a decent fight against some of the better-known SUVs in the market including the Hyundai Creta, the Jeep Compass, and the KIA Seltos. Powering the H9 SUV will be a 2.0L Turbocharged Direct Injection petrol engine that is capable of generating 180Ps of power and 350Nm of torque.

KIA Sportage

Expected Launch10 April, 2022
Engine2.0L Petrol, 2.0L Diesel
Transmission6-Speed Automatic, 8-Speed Automatic

While the upcoming Sportage is in its fourth generation from KIA, the model is yet to make its way to India. Fortunately, though, we believe that the latest model will make its way over given the fact that the SUV segment is truly flourishing in the country. Also, the KIA Seltos has been doing extremely well in India and is growing in popularity every day. This might push KIA to launch the Sportage in the country as well. While there isn’t a lot of information around the Sportage right now, we expect the SUV to be similar to what is offered on the Hyundai Tucson and will immediately compete with the likes of the Tucson, Mahindra XUV500, and the Jeep Compass. Like the Tucson, we can expect the Sportage to come with a 2.0L petrol engine that generates 155Ps of power and 192Nm of torque. There is also a 2.0L diesel engine that produces 185Ps of power and 400Nm of torque. Both the engines will most likely be paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission as standard with the option for upgrading to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Some of the features we are expecting on the Sportage include a panoramic sunroof, multiple airbags, and an electronically adjustable driver seat. With more information expected to drop anytime soon, you can get all the latest Sportage news right here.
