The upcoming festive season and the ending months of 2023 are going to be filled with a lot of excitement. A ton of highly anticipated cars will be breaking cover in the coming period. This particular list is about all the SUVs that are on the horizon. So if you are one of those who wish to know the list of SUVs coming before the end of this year, then you have stumbled upon the right place.
Tata Harrier Facelift
First and foremost, one of the most awaited SUVs, the Tata Harrier facelift, will make its debut in the coming months. Tata Motors has been working on the development of this mid-size SUV for a long time now, and a ton of test mules have been spotted so far. The new facelifted Harrier will be receiving an extensive exterior and interior design update. The car will get a brand new front fascia, front bumper, and rear bumper with new taillights. The interior will also be changed, and it will become more technologically advanced. Most likely, the existing 2.0-litre diesel engine will be offered in addition to the brand new 1.5-liter turbo petrol engine.
Tata Safari Facelift
Soon after the launch of the brand new Harrier facelift, Tata Motors will also launch the Safari facelift as well. The new Safari facelift will also boast a brand new front-end design with a new bumper. The rear too will be slightly redesigned and made more modern. Like the Harrier, the interior of the new Safari facelift will also be fully revamped. It will get a Tata Curvv SUV-inspired dashboard layout with a new infotainment screen and steering wheel. In terms of the powertrain, the outgoing 2.0-liter diesel, along with the new 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol motor, will most likely be offered just like the Harrier facelift.
Tata Punch EV
Next up on the launch roster for the end of the year is the Tata Punch EV. Tata Motors is gearing up to launch the EV iteration of its most successful product, the micro-SUV Punch. This model has also been spotted on multiple occasions in the midst of testing and charging. On the outside, it will look the same as the ICE variant with minor EV-specific changes like a closed-off grille and new badging. It will most likely be offered with the Tata Ziptron EV technology that is offered with the newly launched Tata Tiago EV. According to reports, it could be offered with a 24 kWh battery pack that will provide an MIDC-certified range of 315 km, while a smaller 19.2 kWh battery pack will offer a range of 250 km.
Mahindra Bolero Neo+
Mahindra Automotive, which happens to be the largest SUV maker in India, will also be launching a new product. It will be the new Mahindra Bolero Neo+. Essentially, it is a facelift and newly named iteration of the TUV300+ which was discontinued back in 2020. The company, with this new full-size ladder-on-frame chassis SUV, is looking to expand its portfolio of the popular Bolero model. This model will be placed under the Scorpio-N and will get the same 2.2-liter diesel engine. The power figures, however, will be tuned down to have a gap between the two models. It will most likely produce a maximum of 120 bhp and be offered with only a 2WD drivetrain.
The Japanese automotive giant Toyota recently trademarked the name Taisor in India. It has been reported that most likely it will be a Maruti Suzuki Fronx-based crossover SUV. This new SUV will look exactly like a Fronx with only a few minor changes on the outside. The inside, just like other badge-engineered models, will be the same as the Fronx. Powertrains will also be the same as the Fronx. It will come with options between two engines just like the Fronx. These engines are a 1.0-liter BoosterJet engine generating 100 hp and 147 Nm, and a 90 hp 1.2-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine.
