Upcoming Cars of 2013 under Rs 5 lakh

While some stick to the 'nip-n-tuck' routine, a few car makers will launch new products that may just change buyers' perspective of a low cost car for good. Here is what will come your way in 2013 under Rs 5 lakh


Chevrolet Beat face-lift


Face-lifted Chevrolet Beat


Expected: Mid 2013, Price 3.8-5.7 lakh


Showcased at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the face-lifted version of the Chevrolet Beat will be launched in India in the second or third quarter of 2013 and will carry with it a more enhanced look both on the inside and outside as compared to the outgoing model. 


The refurbished American hatch will sport a bigger grille, a redesigned front bumper with a single piece air dam finished in black, and fog lamps that are now placed at the edges of the air dam with chrome surrounds. Other changes include newly designed alloy wheels and rocker panels. The tail lamp cluster has also been tweaked on the next gen Beat, while its tail pipe has gotten slightly bigger.


The insides of the 2013 Beat model will be fitted with a redesigned centre console and a new infotainment system, a more attractive speedo and a circular digital rev counter. The engine options will remain the same in India with the 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.0-litre diesel engine.



Mahindra Reva NXR

Expected: January 13, 2013, Price: Rs 4.5 - 5 lakh

We’ve already spotted them doing extensive testing and had a look at the amazing plant where these little economizers will be made. With the launch just round the corner, Mahindra Reva is aiming to price its electric car Reva NXR at a 20 per cent premium of the conventionally-run petrol hatchbacks in India. The company is planning to sell 30,000 units in the next three years, including 15,000 units for exports. M&M has tied up with State Bank of India, power distribution companies like BSES and different malls across leading cities for charging stations and it's also in talks with various states to create such facilities across the country.
