Upcoming Hatchback, Sedan, SUV, MPV Launches in Q1 2023

With a kick-off at Delhi Auto Expo 2023, the Indian automotive industry is preparing to launch a slew of new car models including SUVs, sedans, hatchbacks, and MPV. The list of new cars includes Maruti Suzuki Brezza in CNG avatar, Toyota Innova Crysta Diesel, Baleno-based FRONX, and more. Here is what we can expect from the Indian car market in the first quarter of 2023.

Toyota Innova Crysta Diesel

Toyota Innova Crysta

Toyota Kirloskar Motors will relaunch the New Innova Crysta diesel in February 2023 along with its pricing. The company recently started accepting bookings against the 2023 Innova Crysta. The MPV will be offered with a 2.4-litre diesel engine. It is also expected that the four-wheeler will get a revised grille, front bumper, and fog lamp housing with the new updates.

Maruti Suzuki Brezza CNG

Maruti Suzuki Brezza

The upcoming Brezza CNG will be powered by a 1.5-litre K15C DualJet engine, used in Ertiga CNG as well. The CNG engine in the MPV can churn out 98 bhp of max power output with 136 Nm of peak torque. Expect similar figures for the Brezza CNG. Besides, the company claims that the fuel efficiency of the 2023 Brezza CNG is expected to be 26.11 km/kg like the Ertiga. However, the XL6 and Ertiga offer only a 5-speed manual gearbox while the New Brezza is likely to offer a 6-speed torque converter automatic as well.

The former is paired to a CVT while the latter has a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
