Hyundai had confirmed that the next-gen Verna would launch on March 21. Bookings for the mid-size sedan are already open at an amount of Rs. 25,000. Hyundai on their social handles and their websites had released the sketches of how the new Verna would look from the front and the sides, which suggests this model, will be larger, sportier, and premium as well. The feature that we expect to come with are the ADAS, full-digital instrument cluster, a bigger infotainment system, and much more. The new Verna will no longer come with diesel engine, and now will offer only petrol engines with a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine that produces 160 bhp and 315 Nm of torque.

It is expected that Maruti Suzuki will reveal the Baleno-crossover SUV this March. The Fronx has a mixed design language carried from the Baleno and the Grand Vitara. The interior of the cabin feels and looks similar to Baleno while the front look of the car is similar to the Grand Vitara. It’ll get only petrol engines with two options – 1.2 litre petrol engine that produces 88 bhp and 113 Nm of torque, the other is the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine that produces 99 bhp and 147.6 Nm of torque with mild-hybrid technology.

4. Toyota Innova Crysta
Expected Launch Date: Mid to late March, 2023.
Toyota Innoca Crysta got a minor facelift in January and was expected to go on sale in February, but that didn’t happen. So, it is expected the car will go on sale sometime in March with the old-gen Innova Crysta co-existing with the new one in a 2.4-litre diesel engine with Manual Transmission with no Automatic Transmission and no petrol engines on offer as well. It’ll come with features like automatic headlamps with projector set-up, powered driver’s seat, seven airbags, and a big infotainment system.
