Multiple new cars are set to join the roads in 2022, causing a lot of excitement among car fans. Here’s a rundown of the upcoming utility vehicles, which will be available in the year 2022.
NEW GENERATION MARUTI VITARA BREZZA
The second-generation Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza will undoubtedly be one of the year’s most anticipated vehicle releases. Along with the new Heartect platform, the model will have a better design and additional functions. Speculations abound that the company would unveil the redesigned Maruti Vitara Brezza in 2022, which will include a 1.5L K15B petrol engine mated to a more powerful 48V hybrid powertrain. The SUV might possibly get a CNG version with a manual transmission. A 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox will also be available for the model series.
NEW GENERATION MAHINDRA SCORPIO
The famous Scorpio SUV from Mahindra will get a new version in early 2022. The new model will be larger, roomier, more feature-rich than the present one. It’ll be based on a redesigned ladder-on-frame chassis with more durable design features. The forward-facing third-row seats will be included in the 7-seater variant. The new Mahindra Scorpio will be available with a 2.0L mHawk turbo diesel (155bhp/360Nm) and a 2.0L turbo petrol engine (150bhp300Nm). RWD and AWD systems, as well as manual and automatic gears, will be available.
The Citroen C3 tiny vehicle will be released in early 2022, according to the French carmaker. It’s basically a hatchback with crossover styling cues. The concept is based on the CMP modular platform, which has been substantially localised and is developed specifically for emerging countries like India. It has a length of 3.89 metres and is available in four colours: Platinum Grey, Zesty Orange, Ice White, and Artense Grey. The hatchback will come with three engines: a 1.2L normally aspirated engine, a 1.2 turbo petrol engine, and a 1.5L diesel engine.
KIA COMPACT MPV
The Kia KY (codename), the South Korean automaker’s forthcoming small SUV, is set to hit the market in early 2022. The vehicle will be built on the same platform as the Seltos and will seat seven people. While the majority of its design elements will be comparable to those of the Seltos, it will have longer front and back overhangs as well as a larger rear quarter window area. It might be the first car in its sector to include an electronic button for entry to the third-row seat. The 1.5L turbo diesel and 2.0L petrol engines from the Seltos will be used in the upcoming Kia MPV.
HYUNDAI COMPACT MPV
According to sources, the Hyundai Stargazer small MPV would be introduced in early 2022. The model would be introduced first in Indonesia, then in India and other nations. The Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), Hyundai SmartSense, and an electronic sunroof will all be available on the new Hyundai MPV. The MPV will be longer than the Creta, reaching roughly 4.5 metres in length. The Stargazer might be available in India with a 1.5L turbo-diesel engine and a 6-speed manual or CVT automated transmission. The oil burner has a maximum output of 113bhp and a torque of 250Nm.
The new Jeep Meridian 7-seater SUV slates to debut in India early next year, according to the American SUV maker. The SUV’s test mule is recently seen testing in the countryside. It’s essentially the Jeep Commander from Brazil, with slight visual and function tweaks for India. The new Jeep 3-row SUV’s design and aesthetics are significantly influenced by the Compass. It is, however, 346mm longer, 41mm broader, and 42mm higher than its 5-seater counterpart. It will be available in 6- and 7-seat configurations. The Meridian will be powered by a 2.0L, 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine that produces 173bhp and 350Nm. Both manual and automatic transmissions will be available.
