Car News Of The Week 2019 WagonR City ZX Petrol MT Creta SX O Executive Upcoming Launches V-Class X7 XUV300 Hector Huracan Evo And More
There were a couple of launches this week, though not major ones. Honda finally added a top-end manual-transmission variant to the City, while Hyundai gave the Creta some more ammo to take on the new competition in its segment.
It’s only been two weeks into the new year and we already have a lot to look forward to in terms of launches. First up is the all-new Maruti Suzuki WagonR, followed by a luxury MPV from Mercedes-Benz and 9 more products. The flagship SUV from BMW is coming, and so is the much awaited Mahindra compact-SUV. MGs first SUV with a very British-sounding name will be here by mid-2019, along with an extended range all-electric car from Nissan. Finally, Volvo will launch the long-awaited BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Jaguar XE rival in the form of the S60.
CES 2019 gave us a glimpse into the near future of mobility and some fanciful ideas of a future that looks too good to be true. Check out this and more through the links below.
