Chevrolet Enjoy


Expected:

First half of 2013, Price: Rs 6 lakh


The MPV segment is definitely on a roll with Maruti  Ertiga and now Chevrolet announcing the launch of its Enjoy MPV by 2013. While the company has just launched the BS IV Tavera, the Enjoy is sure to be a much more modern and well equipped car. The Chevrolet MPV as it was seen at the 2012 Auto Expo, did not have anything ground breaking about its looks even in its concept avatar. Typical MPV proportions with a nice compact design pretty much summed it up. Expect the interiors to be pretty upmarket with spacious seating for seven passengers. 

 

On the engine front, nothing is clear but expect a detuned version of the Tavera’s 2.2 litre diesel unit. There is also a small capacity petrol and the multifarious 1.3 litre Multijet unit from Maruti in the pipeline. The Enjoy is slated to be manufactured at the Halol facility and is sure to attract a lot of buyers considering the demand for MPV’s here in India. Pricing however will be the key and GM will have to play it right in that department to make the Enjoy a success.

Honda Amaze


Expected: Mid 2013, Price: Rs 6 – 7.5 lakh

Japanese auto major Honda will debut the Amaze sedan mid 2013 in India. Debuted in Thailand, on November 23, 2012, the Honda maiden diesel offering is one of the most eagerly awaited of the company’s products. The 1.5-litre i-DTEC oil-burner has been developed by the former Honda F1 team. According to the company, the sub four-metre sedan is expected to deliver fuel efficiency of around 25kmpl.

In Thailand, the Amaze was launched in four variants including two manuals, S MT and V MT and two automatics, S AT and V AT. India is likely to get the same. The Honda Amaze will be positioned against the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Toyota  Etios and Tata Indigo CS.
