Tata Motors is expected to launch the ICE-powered Curvv coupe SUV this year around the festive season. It will be powered by the Nexon’s 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine that develops 113PS at 3750rpm and 260Nm at 1500-2750rpm. It will be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. It is also likely to get a new 1.2-litre T-GDI turbocharged petrol engine (122PS/225Nm), paired with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox.

Hyundai Alcazar Facelift

Following the launch of the upgraded Creta, Hyundai’s next second big launch (after the Creta N Line) will be the facelifted Alcazar, which is likely to hit the market by mid-2024. The styling updates on the upcoming Alcazar facelift are expected to be on par with the 2024 Creta, albeit with some unique elements to set it apart from its 5-seater counterpart. The similarities will also be carried inside the cabin but with a different cabin scheme and additional features over the Creta.

Underneath the hood, it will continue to retain the ongoing 1.5-litre diesel and turbocharged petrol engines.
