The year 2020 is going to be big for the automotive sector. We will get to see if the problems of the auto sector have started fading away or not. Then there are the BS-6 emission norms kicking in from April 2020, that is going to affect each and every automotive company.
Amidst this, there are some very exciting launches to look forward to. A lot of new generations, facelifts and new models are meant to be launched in 2020. So, here’s a list of upcoming cars in 2020 that will cost under Rs 10 Lakhs.
Upcoming Cars In 2020 – Maruti Suzuki
This news is fresh as the styling of the Ignis facelift has recently been leaked. Along with the BS-6 update, the Ignis will also receive a mild styling upgrade. Inside the cabin, we can expect some minor revisions as well. The facelift will get the new 1.2 Litre petrol engine with SHVS smart-hybrid system that debuted on the Baleno. Its diesel engine was discontinued in 2018 itself owing to poor sales and near pricing with Baleno.
Vitara Brezza Petrol
The best-selling SUV of India will finally get a petrol engine but will also give up its diesel engine. Vitara Brezza Petrol is expected to be launched by February 2020 and will also get a minor facelift alongside. Under the hood, it will get the 1.5 Litre K15B petrol engine, that produces 105 BHP. It will come with the SHVS smart-hybrid system as well. This engine is already BS-6 compliant and might probably reduce the starting prices of Brezza.
Upcoming Cars In 2020 – Tata Motors
Tiago And Tigor Facelift
Tata Motors is going to upgrade the Tiago and Tigor with a mild facelift and BS-6 compliant engines. The updated models will be launched soon in India. The facelift will include brief revisions to the styling and features list. From April 2020, both the cars will lose out their diesel engines owing to the emission norms. They will only be available with their 1.2 Litre three-cylinder petrol engines.
Tata Motors’ newest hatchback has been unveiled in India and we have already reviewed it as well. It will finally be launched next month, with prices being announced then. Altroz is Tata’s chance in the premium hatchback segment, against Hyundai i20, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Honda Jazz, Toyota Glanza and Volkswagen Polo. It gets two engine options – a 1.2 Litre petrol engine from Tiago and 1.5 Litre diesel engine from Nexon. Later, it will also get JTP’s 1.2 Litre turbo-petrol unit and a DCT gearbox as well.
Tata unveiled the H2X micro-SUV at the Geneva Motor Show 2019. The rival for Renault Kwid, Maruti S-Presso and Mahindra KUV100 is most likely to be launched by the end of 2019. We might see it in a production form at the 2020 Auto Expo. The H2X will sit on Tata’s newly developed platform, that undermines the Altroz and will further build next-generation Nexon and Tiago.
Tata Nexon EV has been unveiled in India and its design makes way for the Nexon facelift. The updated Nexon will get revised bumpers, new alloy wheels and addition of an electric sunroof. It also gets a refreshed cabin and some new features. The Facelift will get the BS-6 compliant engines and not the current model.
