The HR-V is Honda’s entry in the Hyundai Creta’s segment. Compared to the Creta, this car looks more curvaceous and better suited for daily use. Expected engines on offer will be a 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine and 1.5-litre turbocharged i-DTEC diesel motor. However, don’t expect to see this car in India before 2018.

MG GS

Price ₹ 13.50 lakh – 18.00 lakh
Launch Date December 2018/January 2019
Specifications 2.0-litre petrol/2.0-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - MG GS

Remember we brought you the story about MG Cars coming to India? This is one of the cars that can come to India as a result. Based on this product’s positioning in the UK, it should come to India as a Hyundai Creta competitor. Also, the UK model makes do with a petrol engine only. However, we do feel this car will likely get a diesel engine when it comes to India.

Price ₹ 10.00 lakh – 14.00 lakh
Launch Date June/July 2018
Specifications 1.6-litre petrol/1.5-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Nissan Kicks

The Kicks SUV is likely to come to India in 2018. That’s because when Nissan revealed the car, it revealed only the left-hand drive version of the car. Expect to see a 1.6-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine under this car’s bonnet. In terms of its positioning in India, Nissan will likely place it above the Terrano SUV in India.

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Hyundai Kona

Hyundai recently took the wraps off its Kona SUV. Internationally, this car gets a 1.0-litre direct-injected turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine. While Hyundai has not revealed any India-related plans for the car, we expect it to come to the country. However, if it comes to India, expect the Kona to have Verna’s 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines. Also, the Indian version will likely be a front-wheel drive car instead of being a four-wheel drive vehicle.

Renault Kaptur

Price ₹ 10.20 lakh – 14.20 lakh
Launch Date October 2017
Specifications 1.5-litre petrol/1.5-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Renault Kaptur

The Kaptur is Renault’s Hyundai Creta fighter and will sit above the Duster upon its India launch. However, with Duster losing its sales momentum, Renault should bring this car to India to not lose its customers to Hyundai. Expect to find a 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine in this car when it comes to India. Among the features likely to be on offer on Renault Kaptur are rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlamps, cornering lamps and hill start assist.

Specifications 1.6-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Suzuki Grand Vitara

Maruti Suzuki has recently found success in premium segments with the likes of the Ciaz. The company was able to make the Vitara nameplate popular in India with Vitara Brezza. It will now look to dip its hands further in the premium car market with the Grand Vitara SUV. This SUV will be a Hyundai Creta competitor and will likely get the 1.6-litre DDiS diesel engine that S-Cross gets. Also likely is Maruti Suzuki offering this car with All-Wheel Drive. In any case, expect this car to retail from Maruti Suzuki’s Nexa dealerships upon launch.

Ford Kuga

Price ₹ 13.00 lakh – 17.00 lakh

Jeep Renegade

Price ₹ 12.00 lakh – 16.00 lakh

Specifications 1.6-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Jeep Renegade

The Renegade will be the volume seller for Jeep India. Slotting below the Compass, the Renegade will be a Renault Kaptur and Honda HR-V fighter. Expect high levels of parts localisation in the car to keep its costs in check. Jeep is likely to use the same 1.6-litre MultiJet deisel engine as that in the S-Cross. However, the likelihood of this car coming to India before 2018 is not high.

The Grand i10 is likely to spawn a new car and you can expect it to be an MPV. This is because Hyundai has nothing to counter the Maruti Suzuki in the MPV space with. Expect the car to get the same engines as are on the Verna. Also, do expect this MPV to look a lot like the Grand i10.

All-New Hyundai Verna

Price ₹ 8.50 lakh – 13.50 lakh

Launch Date October/November 2018
Specifications 1.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol/1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Ford Fiesta

Ford has always brought the Fiesta to India in sedan form. Expect the new car to come to India in sedan body style.

Mahindra Scorpio Facelift

Price ₹ 10.00 lakh – 15.00 lakh
Launch Date October 2017
Specifications 2.2-litre four-cylinder diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Mahindra Scorpio

The Scorpio has been on sale for a few years now. As far as looks are concerned, it looks dated. So, Mahindra is reportedly working on giving this SUV a new face. This will help the car stay relevant in current times.  Don’t expect any change in the engine or other technical bits of the car.

Hyundai Creta Facelift

Price ₹ 9.00 lakh – 15.00 lakh
Launch Date June/July 2018
Specifications 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol/1.4-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel/1.6-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel

Price ₹ 8.00 lakh – 13.00 lakh
Launch Date August 2019
Specifications 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol/1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol/1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Volkswagen Virtus

The Virtus is the car that Volkswagen will likely replace the Vento with. The new Vento will likely be underpinned by the MQB-AO platform from VW Group. Hence, it will likely be lighter and stronger than the outgoing Vento. This should make the Virtus a safer car while delivering good performance and fuel economy numbers.

All-New Renault Duster

Price ₹ 8.50 lakh – 13.00 lakh
Launch Date April 2019
Specifications 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol/1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Renault Duster

The new Renault Duster will be a bigger car than the one currently on sale. This is thanks to the new platform the car will be based on. However, this means that car will not likely come to India before 2019. Also, the car will sport a higher price tag than the one currently on sale.

Mahindra S201

Price ₹ 9.50 lakh – 13.00 lakh onward
Launch Date January/February 2018
Specifications 1.5-litre petrol/1.6-litre turbo diesel

The S201 is a SsangYong Tivoli-based car from Mahindra. Mahindra will likely rope in the help of Pininfarina for design and its Chennai and North American research facilities for development of the car. What we know is that this car is likely to be smaller than the Tivoli. Also, this car is likely to make its debut at the 2018 Auto Expo.

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross Facelift

Price ₹ 8.00 lakh – 12.00 lakh
Launch Date October 2017
Specifications 1.3-litre four-cylinder diesel/1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Maruti Suzuki S-Cross

The S-Cross facelift has been out for some time internationally. In its facelifted form, the car looks taut and sharp. However, no changes have been made to the mechanical bits of the car. So, you will still get the 1.3-litre and 1.6-litre DDiS engines doing duties on the car.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Facelift

Price ₹ 7.50 lakh – 10.50 lakh

One the new Verna is out, it will be the Ciaz which will be due for a facelift. However, the Ciaz’s design lends this car an air of sophistication, which has made this car age gracefully. In essence, don’t expect Maruti Suzuki to give this car any more than minor tweaks here or there.

Kia Ceed

Price ₹ 7.50 lakh – 10.50 lakh
Launch Date October 2019
Specifications 1.6-litre petrol/1.4-litre turbo diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Kia Ceed

The Ceed is Kia’s big hatchback that will likely see competition from the likes of Baleno and Elite i20 upon its launch in India. This car’s arrival here will likely herald coming of cars such as VW Golf to India. After all, it competes with that car in the markets abroad.

Toyota Rush

Specifications 1.5-litre, four-cylinder, petrol/1.4-litre four-cylinder diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Toyota Rush

The Rush is Toyota’s compact SUV that is likely to come to India. Since Toyota does not have a smaller SUV than Fortuner currently in its lineup, the Rush will assume that role, when it comes to India.

Launch Date February 2018
Specifications 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel/2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Mahindra TUV500

The TUV500 is the bigger brother of TUV300 that Mahindra is reportedly working on. The TUV500 will be a bigger car than the TUV300, so much so that it will have a third row of seats. However, don’t expect its design or styling elements to change from those on the TUV300.

Toyota Vios

Launch Date February/March 2018
Specifications 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol/1.4-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel

Upcoming Cars Under 15 Lakhs - Toyota Vios

Toyota has not had a player in the segment ruled by Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Honda City. The Vios is one car it may bring to India to fill that spot. After all, the car looks quite sporty too. Toyota will likely give it a 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 1.4-litre turbocharged diesel engine (same as that on Corolla Altis).

All-New Tata Safari

Price ₹ 10.00 lakh – 15.00 lakh
Launch Date June/July 2018
Specifications 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel

The all-new Safari is likely to be based on the Hexa platform. This will make the car more spacious inside. To power the car, Tata will likely introduce a new 2.0-litre turbocharged VARICOR diesel engine. Tata may seek the help of Land Rover engineers to develop the new Safari.
