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

 

 

Volkswagen Vento

Volkswagen Sub-four metre Sedan


Expected: Mid 2013, Price: Rs 5 - 7 lakh



The benefit of being charged only a 12 per cent excise duty vis-a-vie the 22 per cent charged for sedans above four meters has proved to be lucrative for Volkswagen just like other mass marker car manufacturers. Volkswagen is reportedly working on a sub four meter sedan based on the Polo. This car will slot in between the larger Vento and the Polo hatch and as expected, it will have a rather competitive price tag.

 

 

Hyundai i20

Hyundai i20-based Sedan


Expected: Late 2013, Price: Rs 5 - 7 lakh


 
With flagging Accent sales and no fluidic design car in the entry level sedan segment, Hyundai is expected to launch a new sedan based on the i20 hatchback by the end of 2013.
 
Featuring the frame and design of its smaller twin, it will be available in both petrol and diesel variants. An i20 with an integrated boot, it will probably be a sub 4-metre car packed with features, expected to replace the Accent.
