All New Cars Launched In 2023

With 2023 coming to an end, it is time to recap all the new cars that were launched in India. The last 12 months saw many new car launches in India, with multiple different models from various segments: sub-compact SUVs, people-mover MPVs, electric cars, capable off-roaders, sport cars, and more. We’re only taking into consideration models that have entered the market for the first time or were given a generational update, and therefore have not included facelifts, which will be discussed in a different list.

Here is the entire list of new cars launched in 2023.
