Our List Of The Top 8 Budget Cars Coming To The Expo

2020 could make for a fun year of road testing

We’ll see a myriad of new cars at Auto Expo 2020 next week, from BS6 updates to futuristic electric concepts. We'll also get a look at how the Indian automotive industry is changing and the quickest way to do that is through affordable cars. Here's our roundup of the top 8 budget cars that we’ll see at the Expo:

Facelifted Maruti Suzuki Ignis

A new grille, front bumper, and redesigned taillamps attempt to raise the SUV-quotient of the facelifted Ignis. It will get an updated 1.2-litre K12B BS6 engine, too.

Renault HBC

The CMF-A platform-based HBC compact SUV is expected to be unveiled at the Expo. It will come with a 1.0-litre turbocharged turbo petrol engine. The Triber impressed us with its interior quality at the price point, so we expect the same from the HBC.

Facelifted Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza

The new Brezza will get redesigned front and rear fascias and a new BS6 petrol engine. Maruti will give it a big heart, the 1.5-litre K15B. Will the petrol Brezza find as many takers in India as its diesel version did?

Skoda Vision IN

The Expo will bring us our first look of the Skoda Vision IN, but you’ll have to wait for a launch until next year. The concept is a modern SUV with impressive looks and features. Although the digital driver’s display or the LED-lit fascia might not make it to production, the sophisticated styling will.

Ora R1

The world’s most affordable electric car will get an Indian audience next week. The R1 is cute, well-equipped, and has a decent intra-urban range of 312km. If priced right, it could accelerate India’s electric car adoption.

Mahindra eKUV100

It’s been a long time coming, but the wait will finally be over this summer. The eKUV100 is capable of fast charging and boasts a 140km range. Will the eKUV100 achieve sales numbers like the Tata Tigor EV or is it a couple of years too late to the EV game?

Maruti Suzuki XL5

A spy shot tells us that Maruti Suzuki’s XL5 could get a zero-emission variant. Specs and the rest is expected to be revealed at the Expo. Don’t hold your breath on a launch, since Maruti’s first EV is only likely to arrive by 2021.

Kia QYI 

We'll finally get to see Kia's third vehicle in India. It is a compact SUV which could be Kia's most affordable vehicle in India. BS6 powertrains from the Venue are likely to be found under the bonnet of the QYI.
