2012 Delhi Auto Expo – What’s Coming Our Way!

2012 is not too far away, is it? Here-and-now, we are all smiles and ready, eagerly waiting for the Auto Expo to be held at New Delhi in January; all that, despite the recent slump in the Indian car market. The excitement is nothing short of amazing (for a Petrolhead that is) and the hype is all over the place. This year, the Auto Expo will witness the unveiling of around 60 new models and the lineup of Brands is bigger than ever as well (50 to be precise)

Here’s a flavor of what’s in store from a few of them.

The upcoming Delhi Auto Expo will mark the debut of a number of renowned brands onto the Indian soil, French Car maker Peugeot (in its second innings) & Citroën will showcase their upcoming models heading for our market. 
The Korean Giant Hyundai will unveil the new Elantra sedan to be sold here in India. The 3rd-gen Elantra failed to strike the right chord with customers. Hyundai though, aims to change that with the new Elantra. Next on the agenda is the new Sonata, which will also be present at the Expo.

French Car maker Peugeot's first launch in India will be the 508 saloon

Maruti Suzuki on the other hand, will showcase its ‘tailor-made for India’ five-seater concept SUV.  Surprisingly, even the other big launch is not a hatchback. What it is is a brand new utility vehicle, Ertiga. The Ertiga is based on the same platform as the Maruti Ritz and uses bits from the new Swift as well.

Tata Motors promises a glittery lineup of all new sedans, SUVs and concepts from its Jaguar and Land Rover stable. Plus! There’s the all-new Safari to be unveiled. However, there is no information related to the launch of the much anticipated diesel Nano.

Then there is BMW’s Mini, which will make its India debut at the show. The epitome of retro cool, Mini will be here on our roads early next year. Another iconic British Marquee, Triumph (or Triumph Motorcycles) will mark its entry into the buzzing Indian Performance-bike market. The company will showcase over 7 models to be offered later in the year. Moreover on the floor is the launch
of ‘all-American’ Harley Davidson’s line of customized options for its current range of big bikes, besides unveiling new models.

Apart from new entrants, super premium and luxury carmakers that are sure to steal the show are Ferrari, Maserati, and Lamborghini along with VW’s Bugatti and Porsche. All in all, New Delhi is the place to be this January. Oh yes, this show is about to get a whole lot bigger!
