Next-gen Maruti Swift

The next-gen Swift will be Maruti Suzuki’s next big launch in India. Set to go on sale this month, the updated hatch will get Suzuki’s new Z12E 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine. Along with the new engine, the Swift will feature visual enhancements on the outside, a new cabin layout that will be inspired by Fronx/Baleno, and features like a larger infotainment screen with connected car tech, auto climate control, LED lighting, diamond-cut alloys, and more.

Taa Altroz Racer

The Tata Altroz Racer is expected to arrive in showrooms this month. The Hyundai i20 N Line rival will be offered with the same 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine as the Altroz iTurbo, but in a higher state of tune i.e. 120hp and 170Nm. It will be available with a 6-speed manual gearbox only, for now. Apart from the unique ‘Racer’ badges, the Altroz Racer will feature a dual-tone paint scheme, a revised grille, and a new design for the 16-inch alloy wheels, when compared to the standard Altroz.

Tata Nexon iCNG

First displayed at the Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024 earlier this year, the Nexon CNG will be the second Tata model that is expected to arrive this month. It will make use of the same dual-cylinder technology as the Punch CNG, Tiago CNG, and Tigor CNG. The power and torque output on the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine will see a slight reduction when paired with CNG. 

The Tata Nexon CNG will become the first CNG car in the country with a turbo-petrol engine. Moreover, the Tata Nexon CNG could also be offered with an optional automatic gearbox.

New Porsche Panamera

Launched in November last year, the new third-gen Porsche Panamera is finally set to make its India debut this month. Priced from Rs 1.68 crore (ex-showroom) onwards, the Panamera will be available with a sole 2.9-litre, twin-turbo V6 engine coupled with an 8-speed PDK auto, feeding power to the rear wheels only. A V8 powertrain will also join the Panamera line-up at a later date.
