Upcoming cars in May 2024

In the first four months of 2024, the Indian automobile industry has witnessed quite some action in terms of new car launches and unveilings. The month of May, although not likely to be as busy as the past couple of months, is still expected to have three big launches, including that of the new-gen Maruti Swift. Let’s check all of them out in detail:

Force Gurkha 5-door

Launch On: May 2

Expected Price: Rs 16 lakh

5-door Force Gurkha

The Force Gurkha 5-door was unveiled recently and prices are to be revealed at its launch soon. Force isn’t only introducing the longer-wheelbase SUV; it’s also updating the 3-door Gurkha with some features and mechanical updates. Both the SUVs get a powerful 140 PS 2.6-litre diesel engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Force is offering them with a 4x4 drivetrain as standard, featuring manually locking differentials and a shift-on-fly functionality for switching between 2-wheel-drive (2WD) and 4-wheel drive (4WD). The 5-door Gurkha has a 3-row seating layout, with bench seats for the second row and captain seats for the third-row passengers. In terms of equipment, both versions of the offroader come with a new 9-inch touchscreen, a digital driver’s display, dual front airbags, and a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

2024 Maruti Suzuki Swift

Expected Launch: First half of May

Expected Price: Rs 6 lakh

2024 Maruti Suzuki Swift

After being introduced in global markets like Japan and the UK, the fourth-gen Maruti Suzuki Swift is finally set to go on sale in India. The new hatchback has a fresh design inside and out, while still retaining the core essence of a Swift. Suzuki has equipped it with a new 1.2-litre 3-cylinder Z series petrol engine (82 PS/up to 112 Nm), paired with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a CVT. In Japan, the Swift is available in both petrol and hybrid versions, with an optional all-wheel-drive (AWD) setup. That said, the India-spec Swift will not get the hybrid and AWD versions, while the CVT could be replaced with an AMT option to make it more affordable. The new Swift packs features such as a 9-inch touchscreen, auto AC, a 360-degree camera, six airbags, and blind spot detection.

As showcased, it featured a 10.25-inch touchscreen, a 7-inch digital driver display, ventilated front seats, and a sunroof.

It is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and will be offered with an automatic transmission option as well.
