by Team ZigWheels Posted on 18 Dec 2012714,878 Views5 Comments

Year 2012 saw some very significant launches in the Rs 5 lakh to Rs 8 lakh price bracket. And 2013 promises to be even better. Starting from Honda's first diesel sedan, compact SUVs like the Ford EcoSport and Maruti XA Alpha, and a slew of sub-four metre sedans, this segment will witness the hottest action. Here is what to look out for in the coming year

 

Face-lifted Chevrolet Beat

 

 

Face-lifted Chevrolet Beat


Expected Mid 2013, Price: Rs 3.8-5.7 lakh


Showcased at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the face-lifted version of the Chevrolet Beat will be launched in India in the second or third quarter of 2013 and will carry with it a more enhanced look both on the inside and outside as compared to the outgoing model. 

 

The refurbished American hatch will sport a bigger grille, a redesigned front bumper with a single piece air dam finished in black, and fog lamps that are now placed at the edges of the air dam with chrome surrounds. Other changes include newly designed alloy wheels and rocker panels. The tail lamp cluster has also been tweaked on the next gen Beat, while its tail pipe has gotten slightly bigger. The insides of the 2013 Beat model will be fitted with a redesigned centre console and a new infotainment system, a more attractive speedo and a circular digital rev counter. The engine options will remain the same in India with the 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.0-litre diesel engine. Also, a budget of Rs 5 lakh+ should easily get you the top-end variants of the Beat.

 

Datsun model range

 

 

Datsun model range


Expected: Late 2013; Price: Rs 4-6 lakh

Nissan India unveiled their low-cost Datsun brand for the Indian market a few months ago. The first product will be a A-Star competitor and the other car is expected to be a Santro/Wagon-R-like tall-boy hatch. Both these products will be priced at Rs 4 lakhs onwards, placed below the Nissan  car portfolio. This is the first time the Datsun brand has come to Indian shores and there is talk of the two products coming in late 2013. The Datsun brand will target used cars buyers and two-wheeler owners looking for budget cars and the Datsun brand promises to attract them with lightweight, durable, practical and affordable cars.
