Here Are 5 Car Launches That Stole The Spotlight In 2021

And as expected, most models on this list are SUVs

This year, we saw new launches aplenty, including SUVs, hot hatches, and electric vehicles. And here’s us bringing you the top five cars that made a splash in 2021.

PS: As probably expected, most of these are the big and brawny members of the family.

Mahindra XUV700


The Mahindra XUV700 has been so popular that the first 50,000 units were sold out within a matter of a few hours. Given its success, waiting times are bound to be long. Check out our XUV700’s first drive review to know what we thought of the SUV.

Skoda Kushaq / VW Taigun


The Skoda Kushaq and VW Taigun come in next. Sitting in the hotly contested compact SUV segment, these two rival stalwarts like the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. And despite being petrol-only models, both SUVs are fun-to-drive. Know what we thought of them in these two links below:

MG Astor


Though late to the party, the MG Astor packs some wow features, including segment-first Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The first lot was sold out within minutes. You can check out what we think about the Astor

Tata Punch


Sure, its pricing may not have been as expected, but the Tata Punch undoubtedly ticks almost all boxes, thanks to its SUV-ish looks and a long list of features. The micro SUV sits in a white space and locks horns with select compact SUVs and premium hatchbacks. Here are our likes and dislikes about the Tata Punch.

Audi e-tron GT


The e-tron GT might not be as popular as the others on this list. But we thought it deserves a mention simply because it’s the first all-electric performance vehicle that was launched in India. Audi also offers the RS version alongside the standard model, which is seriously quick in its own right. Here’s everything you’ve wanted to know about the e-tron GT

Did we leave out anything? Please drop your suggestions in the comments, we’d love to know your thoughts.
