Upcoming Cars Set to Arrive In July 2023

This July, we’re going to witness three highly anticipated car launches and one debut. Korean automaker Kia’s most awaited Seltos facelift will be unveiled first, and then we will see the launch of a brand new MPV from Maruti Suzuki. A new compact SUV will also be launched this month from Hyundai. In the luxury space, a new-generation version of GLC will hit our shores later this month. 

Kia Seltos Facelift

Unveil Date – 04 July 2023

  • Maruti Suzuki is going to enter the premium MPV space with the rebadged Toyota Innova Hycross that will be christened as “INVICTO”. 
  • Compared to its donor model, the Maruti MPV will flaunt some cosmetic changes, especially at the front end, to give it a different identity. 
  • Inside, it is likely to get a new colour scheme and upholstery. 
  • Reports also suggest that the Maruti Invicto could skip the ADAS technology to keep its prices in check. 
  • Underneath the hood, the Invicto is likely to be equipped with only a 172PS 2-litre petrol-hybrid engine of the Hycross, paired with an e-CVT automatic transmission. 
  • It is expected to offer a fuel efficiency of approximately 23.4 kmpl.
