As we step into the month of February 2024, the automotive landscape in India is gearing up for a series of exciting launches, building upon the momentum set in January. The past month witnessed notable debuts like the Tata Punch EV and the opulent Rolls Royce Spectre in the electric vehicle space. While the January launches created substantial buzz, February promises a slightly quieter yet equally significant lineup.
Kia Carnival Facelift
Among the anticipated launches is the facelifted version of the Kia Carnival MUV from the Korean automaker, Kia. Set to hit the Indian market in February 2024, this revamped Carnival was previously showcased as the KA4 concept at the 2023 Auto Expo. The upcoming Carnival is expected to feature a refreshed design, elevating its aesthetic appeal, and is poised to offer premium interiors. Buyers can look forward to choosing between the 7-seater and 9-seater configurations, adding versatility to this popular MUV.
Mahindra XUV300 Facelift
Mahindra, a key player in the Indian automotive scene, is gearing up to launch the facelifted version of its successful compact SUV, the XUV300. Set to retain the five variants of its predecessor, the XUV300 facelift will be available with both diesel and petrol powertrains. A major design overhaul is on the cards, promising a fresh and modern look. The interiors are also expected to receive significant improvements, enhancing the overall driving experience for consumers who opt for this popular SUV.
Tata Tiago CNG AMT
Tata Motors, a brand known for its commitment to sustainable mobility solutions, is set to make waves in the green mobility segment with the launch of the Tata Tiago CNG in an automatic variant. What makes this launch particularly noteworthy is that it marks the introduction of the first CNG automatic hatchback in India. The Tiago CNG AMT is expected to house a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine, coupled with a 5-speed AMT transmission. Despite the shift to CNG, Tata Motors aims to retain the distinctive design and features that have made the Tiago a popular choice among Indian car buyers.
Tata Tigor CNG AMT
In tandem with the Tiago CNG AMT launch, Tata Motors is set to expand its CNG portfolio with the introduction of the Tigor CNG AMT in February 2024. Sharing the same 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine and 5-speed AMT transmission as the Tiago, the Tigor CNG AMT is expected to bring its own set of features to the table. Enthusiasts can anticipate a 7-inch infotainment screen, semi-digital driver’s display, and advanced elements like a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), providing a well-rounded driving experience.
As the automotive industry continues to evolve and respond to the changing needs of consumers, Tata Motors stands out for its innovative approach. The introduction of CNG variants in both the Tiago and Tigor, especially in the automatic format, reflects the brand’s commitment to providing eco-friendly and convenient options for the discerning Indian consumer.
These upcoming launches in February 2024 showcase a diverse range of offerings, from refreshed and facelifted SUVs to groundbreaking CNG automatic hatchbacks. As the automotive sector in India embraces sustainable and customer-centric solutions, these launches are poised to redefine driving experiences and set new benchmarks in their respective segments. Car enthusiasts and prospective buyers can eagerly await these additions to the Indian automotive landscape, each promising a unique blend of style, technology, and eco-consciousness.
