Upcoming Cars of 2013 from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 8 lakh

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



Toyota Compact Sedan


Toyota Etios*


Toyota Compact Sedan

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

While you already have the Etios hatch and the sedan, there is a strong possibility that Toyota is planning to slot a sub 4 meter notchback in there as well. Expect petrol and diesel engines from the Liva hatch back with the sub four metre dimensions promising some very attractive pricing.



Tata Indigo CS


Tata Indigo Manza*


Tata Motors Manza based Compact Sedan

Expected: Late 2013, Price: Rs. 6-7.5 lakh

Tata Motors were the first to avail of the sub four-metre excise duty benefits, by trimming its Indigo mid-size saloon and christening it as Indigo CS (compact sedan). The reduction in duty meant they were able to price the CS aggressively and it turned out to be a great success story for Tata. For 2013, a sub four-metre Manza is on the cards, the Manza CS is likely to be powered by a 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel sourced from the Vista.  It will be interesting to see how Tata manages to price the Manza CS and it could be marketed as a notchback version of the Vista.
