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



Maruti Suzuki XA Alpha

Expected: End of 2013, Price: Rs. 7 lakh


With the success of the Mahindra XUV 5OO and Renault Duster, Maruti Suzuki unveiled its own all-new mini-SUV, the XA Alpha concept at the 2012 Auto Expo in Delhi. Based on the Swift platform and sticking to the SUV DNA this new mini-SUV has extremely short front and rear overhangs, funky headlights, and thick C-pillar. The interiors are likely to be similar to the Swift and Swift Dzire. It will sport the K-series petrol engine and 1.3-litre diesel powerplant. It will be interesting to see how this one is priced.



Volkswagen Cross Polo

Expected: Early 2013, Price: Rs. 6-8 lakh

The Volkswagen Group will be launching the Cross Polo, which is a rugged version of the existing Polo by early 2013. The Cross Polo will have 15mm more ground clearance than the current version of the Polo along with a silver diffuser at the rear and big 17-inch alloy wheels. The car has black matte plastic molding around the wheel arches, bumpers, and side sills and the side profile has sporty black wheel arch extensions to give it a tougher look. It is speculated to have a tailgate-mounted spare wheel to give it a SUV-like resemblance and a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine exclusively for the Indian version.
