Upcoming sedans in 2023

The year 2023 is expected to be a prosperous one for the Indian automotive sector. We wouldn’t be shocked to see many more electric cars launches from various businesses entering the Indian market after last year’s several EV debuts. In addition to EVs, we anticipate some outstanding ICE cars this year. Here is the list of new sedans to be launched in 2023.

1) Hyundai Aura

Hyundai is anticipated to redesign the Grand i10 Nios hatchback-based Aura compact car. Since the previous model just lost its diesel engine, anticipate that the new one will continue to offer gasoline, turbo-gasoline, and CNG engines. Hyundai’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design language may be incorporated into the facelift, while the Grand i10 Nios is likely to receive similar aesthetic improvements.

2) Hyundai Verna

The next Verna, code-named BN7, will adhere to Hyundai’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design philosophy and may have split headlamps. Due to the impending RDE requirements, the diesel engine will no longer be offered in the Verna.

Because competitors Slavia and Virtus also have 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engines, it may also receive mild hybrid technology with automatic start/stop and regeneration functions.

The Verna will also have Hyundai’s ADAS technology from the Tucson, the first vehicle in the midsize range. Additionally, it will be substantially bigger than it was before, which will aid with rear room.

3) BMW 7 Series

Due in part to feedback from customers in China and Japan, the most recent model of BMW’s premium sedan features some daring external style. BMW has abandoned the double-barrel headlamps in favour of a split headlamp design that is more contemporary and features an enlarged version of its signature kidney grilles.

The new 7 Series interior, rather than its avant-garde design, is what really shines out. Below the 14.9-inch infotainment touchscreen and the 12.3-inch instrument display on the dashboard is a full-width light band. A massive 31.3-inch, 8k “theatre” screen option that folds down from the roof and delivers media streaming services will also be available to passengers in the back seats.

4) Volvo S60

A new rear apron with disguised exhaust pipes, new alloy wheels, and a slightly modified air intake in the bumper are all part of the Volvo S60’s facelift. The new infotainment system is compatible with android devices, which is also available on other Volvo cars and gives the S60 access to Google Maps, Google Assistant, and the Google Play Store is the largest interior improvement.

While Volvo provides mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid diesel engines globally, the S60 for India is only likely to receive a petrol mild-hybrid engine. Similar to the XC40, the facelifted vehicle will use a mild-hybrid version of the same 2.0-litre gasoline engine that produced 190 horsepower.

5) Mercedes Benz A-class

Recent mid-life upgrades to the Mercedes-Benz A-Class include new LED lights, new daytime running lights, and a reworked front end (DRLs). But other than the tail-lamp features, not much has changed in the back. Additionally, the inside will mostly remain similar while adding new amenities like the most recent MBUX system. In addition, there are modifications made internally with additional plug-in hybrid variations available. The 2.0-litre diesel engines are likely to remain in the India-specific model, although a mild hybrid system might be added to the 1.3-litre gasoline engine.

6) Hyundai Ioniq6

The Parametric Pixel design elements included on the Ioniq 5 are also present on the Ioniq 6. It includes athletic features like the integrated rear lip spoiler and slanted roof and window lines that enhance its aerodynamic design. The Ioniq 6 can have small overhangs and an extended wheelbase for increased interior space thanks to the EV platform.

The Ioniq 6 has a 77.4kWh battery pack under its shell and is available in two drivetrain configurations: a single electric motor driving the rear wheels with a 228PS rating, or a dual-motor AWD layout with a 325PS rating. The model on display uses a single motor configuration. The single-motor version’s maximum range is stated by Hyundai to be up to 547 km, while the dual-motor configuration is expected to give up to 500 km.

7) BYD Seal EV

With the limited-edition Atto 3 E-SUV and a brand-new electric sedan dubbed the Seal, Chinese EV manufacturer BYD India also caught people’s attention. Only 1,200 of the “forest green” Atto 3 models will be made in total. The limited edition SUV is priced at Rs 34.49 lakh ex-showroom by BYD.

The Seal EV is expected to be launched by Q4 2023. Some of its best features are a 0-100 kmph sprint time of just 3.8 seconds, a stated range of 700 km, a 50:50 axle load distribution, and a drag coefficient of just 0.219 Cd.
