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

 

Honda City

Face-lifted Honda City


Expected: Late 2013, Price: Rs 7.20 – 10 lakh


Japanese car maker Honda is expected to launch a face-lifted version of the City by late 2013. The sedan will not feature any design changes, but Honda will bring in the 1.5- litre i-DTEC oil burner to take on the Volkswagen Vento TDi and Skoda Rapid TDi.

The introduction of the diesel engine is part of Honda’s plan to boost annual sales from three million to six million units by 2017. The petrol engine option will sport the acclaimed 1.5-litre i-VTEC tweaked to improve performance and fuel efficiency.

The interiors are expected to remain the same.

 

 

Nissan Evalia

Renault MPV


Expected: Mid-2013, Price: Rs. 7-10 lakh

 

Badge re-engineering is the mantra of the day, and the Renault-Nissan Alliance is prime example of it being a win-win situation. With the Micra-Pulse and Sunny-Scala on the streets, it is only a matter of time before Renault brings in their version of the Evalia. Like the Pulse and the Scala which are priced higher than the Micra and Sunny respectively, Renault’s Evalia based MPV too will be priced marginally above the Evalia. Under the hood, this new MPV will have the 1.5-litre dCi mill from the Evalia.

 

Renault Duster

Nissan Compact SUV


Expected: August 2013, Price: Rs 7.5 – Rs 11 lakh


As a part of badge re-engineering between Nissan and Renault, the Japanese car maker will launch a compact SUV similar in design and build to the Duster. The SUV is expected to go on sale by August 2013 at a more aggressive price tag.

Overall, the vehicle, code named NH79 is expected to have minor changes to the exterior design while the interior is expected to remain the same similar to what has been seen with the Micra and Sunny being re-badged as Pulse and Scala respectively.
