The auto industry has been buzzing with anticipation and enthusiasts cannot wait for the curtains to be lifted off the new models from Toyota to Tata to Maruti Suzuki, and beyond. Let’s take a closer look at the vehicles that are set to launch in April 2024.

Toyota Taisor (Expected Price - Rs 8 lakh to Rs 15 lakh)

Toyota is set to unveil an exciting new crossover named the Taisor on 3rd April. This model is essentially a re-badged version of the Maruti Suzuki Fronx, making it the fourth Maruti vehicle to be re-badged by Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) in India. While the Taisor will retain the overall design of the Fronx, it will feature some subtle exterior modifications, particularly at the front, along with the prominent inclusion of the Toyota logo throughout.

In terms of features, it is expected to inherit the same impressive set of equipment found in the Fronx. This will include a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless phone charging, 6 airbags and a 360-degree camera setup.

As for powertrain options, it is likely to offer the same choices as the Fronx. These will include a 1.2-liter petrol engine generating 90 bhp and 113 Nm of torque, and a 1.0-liter turbo petrol producing 100 bhp and 148 Nm of torque. Transmission options may encompass a 5-speed manual gearbox for both engines, a 5-speed automated manual transmission (AMT) for the 1.2-litre unit, alongside a 6-speed automatic transmission for the turbo petrol variant.

Additionally, a CNG powertrain offering 77 bhp and 98.5 Nm of torque coupled with a 5-speed manual gearbox is also a possibility.

Force Motors is ready to launch the rugged rival to Mahindra Thar in the offroader SUV segment for 2024 - the Force Gurkha 5-door.

Recently, the manufacturer teased the upcoming SUV indicating that the launch is nearby. The Gurkha 5-door comes with a longer wheelbase and an additional set of doors compared to the current model.

It also features some design revisions both on the exterior and interior. Inside, the SUV will offer a 3-row seating layout with bench seats for the second row and captain seats for the passengers in the third row.

It is expected to come with similar features as the 3-door model, including a 7-inch touchscreen, manual air conditioning, and dual front airbags.

In terms of performance, the company is likely to retain the same 2.6-litre diesel engine generating 90 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque from the current version of the Gurkha. However, it might be tuned for a higher output. The engine is expected to be paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.

New-Generation Maruti Swift (Expected Price - Rs 6 lakh to Rs 13 lakh)

New-Generation Maruti Swift

The launch of the fourth-generation Suzuki Swift in India is one of the most awaited launches of the year. Maruti has redesigned the vehicle inside-out giving it a smarter and more stylish appearance while still retaining its familiar charm.

The upcoming Swift is said to be loaded with impressive features, including a large 9-inch touchscreen display, automatic air conditioning, diamond-cut alloy wheels, a 360-degree camera, 6 airbags, and blind-spot detection.
