by Team ZigWheels Posted on 18 Dec 2012715,185 Views5 Comments

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

 

 

Force Motors Gurkha

Expected: Mid of 2013, Price: Rs. 6-8 lakhs


After a successful SUV segment foray with the Force One, Force Motors  is reviving its popular Gurkha to take on the Mahindra Thar. It will be powered by a 2.6-litre diesel engine producing 76PS of power and 195Nm of torque, and will be mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The new BSIV compliant engine will make it eligible for sale in metros.

 

The new Gurkha, based on the legendary Mercedes-Benz Gelandewagen (G-Wagen), will be built under license from Daimler. Changes on the 2013-spec Gurkha include all-new headlights; alloy wheels from the Force One and revised interiors. The A-pillar placed snorkel establishes its off-road credentials.

Maruti Suzuki Sedan

 

New Maruti-Suzuki Sedan


Expected: Late 2013, Price: Rs 6.5 - 8.5 lakh


Maruti Suzuki could have a sedan for 2013 to slot between the Swift Dzire and SX4. However it will not fall into the sub 4-metre category. It may be based on a new platform and feature an entirely new design language and will be powered by a 1.3-litre diesel and 1.4-litre petrol powerplant from the Ertiga.
