SUV sales are booming in India, where these adaptable cars are starting to become commonplace. In order to meet the constantly rising demand, a number of automakers are getting ready to launch new and redesigned SUV models in 2024. Here is a look at five of the most eagerly awaited SUVs that will arrive in India in 2024.
2024 Hyundai Creta facelift
On January 16, 2024, Hyundai is scheduled to introduce the updated Creta, their best-selling mid-size SUV. Both the inside and outside of the Hyundai Creta, which rivals the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara and Kia Seltos, will see major changes. The installation of an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), which raises the car’s safety rating, will be one of the main improvements. It will also have a 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine, matching the power output of its competitor, the Kia Seltos.
2024 Kia Sonet facelift
Reservations for the new Kia Sonet compact SUV are now open, and it is scheduled for release in January 2024. Against the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, and Mahindra XUV300, the Kia Sonet is a fierce rival. Numerous improvements are included in the redesigned Sonet, such as an integrated 10.25-inch HD touchscreen navigation system, six airbags, LED sound-ambient lighting, and a 10.25-inch instrument cluster panel. In addition, it has over 70 connected car technologies, including 10 ADAS features, 25 safety features with a high-safety package, and a surround view monitor.
When it debuts in 2024, Tata Motors’ Curvv is anticipated to be a game-changer as it goes up against rivals like the Hyundai Creta, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, and Kia Seltos. It is planned that the Curvv will be offered to customers in both ICE and EV configurations, providing them more flexibility. The all-electric variant is anticipated to have a stated range of 400 to 500 kilometers, making it an appealing option for drivers who care about the environment, even though particular data are still to be disclosed.
Mahindra Thar 5-door
In 2024, Mahindra plans to introduce the Thar 5-door, a competitor for the Maruti Suzuki Jimny and the forthcoming Force Gurkha 5-door. The Thar 5-door, which was spotted testing in India, would get improvements like circular LED DRLs for the headlamps, alloy wheels with a new design, an electric sunroof, a new infotainment system, and a contemporary instrument cluster.
After the Magnite’s success, Nissan is anticipated to relaunch the X-Trail to the Indian market after March 2024. The Alliance CMF-C platform serves as the foundation for the fourth-generation X-Trail, which is presently undergoing testing in India. It will provide both strong hybrid and mild hybrid systems. The Nissan X-Trail promises to deliver an opulent and cutting-edge driving experience with high-end amenities including a 360-degree camera, ADAS technology, and a 12.3-inch digital cluster and touchscreen.
From tough off-roaders to elegant urban cruisers, these future SUVs represent the wide range of tastes of Indian consumers. With better safety requirements, cutting-edge technologies, and an emphasis on sustainability and performance, the 2024 SUV portfolio is expected to feed the country’s SUV obsession.
