The Indo-Japanese carmaker Maruti Suzuki is one of the most famous brands in the country. Suzuki still maintains a massive lead over other cars in the country. Similarly, Krean Hyundai is one of the highest selling SUV in the country. The largely popular Hyundai Creta is still the largest selling vehicle in the segment. Both these brands have a line-up of vehicles for the year including the New Celerio 2021 and the Hyundai Casper.
The Maruti Celerio Festive Edition
The hatchback Celerio is the aspirational car for many Indian families and the new festive edition is delayed due to the non-availability of semi-conductor chips. The new Celerio will use the Heartect platform but it has many changes on the interiors and exterior of the car. It could be slightly longer and taller than the original Celerio. The dashboard looks new with the inclusion of the 7 inch infotainment screen and the plush upholstery that looks better. The car will still use the same 1.0 L naturally aspirated petrol engine that provides a power of 69 bhp. It will come in both manual and automatic gearboxes.
New Micro SUV – Hyundai Casper
Micro SUV is the sub-segment of the SUV. These sub 4 metre cars provide an SUV like feel and power in the size of a hatchback. Micro SUV is a popular and fast growing segment in the Indian automobile industry. So, it is no wonder that the Korean automobile giant is venturing in to this profitable segment.
The recently unveiled car in the Korean market, the Casper will be powered by a 1.0L naturally aspirated petrol engine and also comes in 1.0 Litre turbocharged petrol engine option. It is 3595 mm long and stands at 1575 mm tall. The bold exteriors and front grille gives the Casper, a unique view. The split LED headlamps and the DRLs take care of the styling on the front. The faux silver skid plate and square shaped wheel arches gives the car a rugged and strong look.
It will compete with the likes of Tata Punch, Renault. There are also rumours that the Korean brand won’t launch the vehicle in Indian market. Let us wait for further news in this case.
