The last few months have brought us a lot of new cars. More than that, news for upcoming cars is pouring in from all directions. From leaked images to spy shots of test mules on the road, all hint that there are tons of new cars or makeover models ready to hit Indian shores. So today we bring you a list of “5 most anticipated cars in India”.
Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Facelift
The car is given a complete overhaul in terms of looks. He now gets a straighter stance and a more boxy figure. There is a new large grille that features a honeycomb pattern and it houses a thick chrome grille running through it. It also gets new three-beam headlights and a silver skid plate up front.
In terms of performance, Suzuki will equip the new S-Cross with a 48V mild hybrid system with a 1.4-liter Boosterjet engine that generates 127 hp of maximum power and 235 Nm of maximum torque. It will be offered with Suzuki’s 4X4 AllGrip transmission system. This car will make its world debut on November 25. Read more about it here.
This derivative of the Jeep Compass will be a 7-seater. The overall design will be taken from the compass. This car’s heavily dressed test mules managed to keep the design a secret, but we got a peak inside since it has already been unveiled for several international markets.
Ambient lighting is widely used in the cabin and the interior is brown leather. It also offers new color combinations and new materials to enhance the interior. It will get a 10-inch touchscreen, wireless charging, ventilated seats, a fully digital instrument cluster and much more. The Meridian will be fitted with the Compass’s 2-liter MultiJet.

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza facelift
A facelift was long overdue for the Vitara Brezza, and now it’s finally here. The recently redone photos reveal the entire design of the car. The front has a right cover. The headlights are new LED projector units. The lower half of the bumper is now finished in gray. He also gets a silver pickguard.
The rear receives split LED taillights that have a black surround. There is a “Brezza” lettering which is placed between the tail lights. The interior is configured to receive a new permanent touchscreen infotainment system and other elements like the steering and AC vents borrowed from the Swift and Baleno. The same 1.5-liter naturally aspirated K15B petrol engine that produces 105bhp and 138Nm of maximum torque, would still power the Brezza and could get a hybrid setup. Read more about it here.
Hyundai Creta facelift
Creta made his debut at GIIAS Indonesia. The design changes and the front fairing has a design similar to that of the new Tucson. The LED daytime running lights are integrated into the blackened cascading grille and the headlights are placed at the lower end. At the rear, the look remains largely the same and features some minor changes to the taillights. Interiors are more or less similar to the current Creta, with the only difference being the new 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster compared to the last-gen model. Some other added features are ADAS features such as lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and autonomous emergency braking. Read more about it here.
The VW Virtus sedan could replace the dated VW Vento. The Virtus’ disguised test mule was seen trying out on our grounds. Higher variants of the Virtus will be fitted with LED lighting all around. Virtus will be 92mm longer, 52mm wider and 5mm taller than the Vento we get. This should result in better cabin space. Inside, it features a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, large ‘VW Play’ touchscreen infotainment system, connected car technology, driver fatigue monitor, among many others. features. The VW Virtus could be powered by the same 1.0 liter turbo petrol engine which is good for 110 hp of power and 175 Nm of maximum torque as in the Vento. Or it could get the 1.5-liter turbo-gasoline that develops 150bhp and 250Nm of torque seen on the Taigun. Read more about it here.
