New Delhi: SUVs are new synonym for the automobile market. In the 16th edition of Auto Expo 2023, the craze for SUVs among the auto-enthusiasts was high considering other vehicles present in the display.
The motor show featured a number of intriguing SUVs that will be available in India, and here we have compiled a list of them.
1. Lexus LX 500d
Lexus quietly introduced its iconic SUV, the LX 500d, in India the year before, with a price tag of Rs 2.82 crore. The Vehicle is powered by a 3.3-liter twin-turbo V6 diesel engine with 309hp and 700Nm and a 10-speed automatic transmission. The exterior styling of the Range Rover-rivaling LX 500d is bold, with a huge grille up front, an upstanding posture, and squared-off wheel arches.
2. Lexus RX
Another Lexus SUV, the RX, made its India breakthrough at the Auto Expo. The Japanese automaker has begun accepting reservations for the fifth-generation RX and therefore will publicly declare pricing in March 2023. Lexus also stated that, unlike the previous-generation RX, the new one will not have a three-row variant. The RX comes in two models: RX 350h Luxury and RX 500h F-Sport. Effectiveness, both are equipped with a turbo petrol engine.
3. Maruti Suzuki Brezza CNG
The Brezza CNG, which has been showcased at the company’s venue, is an eagerly awaited alternative power model in Maruti Suzuki’s list. This will be the first version in Maruti’s CNG profile and in India to have an automatic transmission, including a 6-speed automatic transmission. It will be powered by the same 1.5-liter petrol engine which generates 100hp and 136Nm in petrol engine mode and 88hp and 121.5Nm in CNG mode just like Ertiga CNG. Both are predicted to even have significant power characteristics.
4. Maruti Suzuki Jimny
The much-anticipated 5-door Maruti Suzuki Jimny made its world debut at Auto Expo 2023. It will be available in India first, marked through other international markets, in May. Despite being lengthier than that the 3-door Jimny, the two concepts share many features. The India-spec model shares many design cues with the global 3-door model, including clean surfacing, a slatted grille, upright pillars, flared wheel arches, and circular headlamps.
5. Tata Harrier, Safari Red Dark Edition
Two additional Red Dark edition Harrier and Safari models also appeared on display at the Tata pavilion. Although both SUVs already have Dark editions, these new vehicles receive more than merely cosmetic updates. Tata demonstrated both with fresh 10.25-inch touchscreens and ADAS technology, inferring that both will be available in standard models. They also have a red insert in the front grille and red brake calipers. Structurally, the Harrier and Safari are identical to the regular models.
