The past week was dominated by the Bharat Mobility Global Expo, and a host of luxury SUV launches

In the intervening week of January and February 2024, there was a lot of buzz in the Indian automotive industry, mainly because of the newly organised Bharat Mobility Global Expo. Apart from the auto show event, we also got three premium car launches, and a few leaked and spy images of two upcoming SUVs. Let’s delve into the highlights of the week.

All Car Launches Of The Week

Citroen C3 Aircross automatic

Citroen C3 Aircross Automatic: When Citroen launched the C3 Aircross in 2023, it only introduced the compact SUV with a manual gearbox. Now, after almost six months since launch, the SUV has received an automatic gearbox option, which can be had with both its 5-seat and 7-seat variants.

Mercedes-Benz GLA 2024
2024 Mercedes-AMG GLE 53 Coupe

2024 Mercedes-Benz GLA And AMG GLE 53 Coupe: Mercedes-Benz India started 2024 with the launch of the facelifted GLA and AMG GLE 53 Coupe SUVs. The entry-level SUV is still available with both petrol and diesel engines but has received minor styling revisions inside and out. The AMG GLE 53 Coupe, on the other hand, also gets minor design tweaks inside and out with the midlife refresh but the more significant change is in its performance numbers.

2024 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

2024 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque: The facelifted Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, updated globally in mid-2023, has now hit the Indian market. It comes with subtle design tweaks, tech updates, and improved mild-hybrid powertrains. What’s great is that these updates come not with a price hike but a big price cut.

Bharat Mobility Global Expo: Key Highlights

The Bharat Mobility Global Expo was organised for the first time as a 3-day auto event where many carmakers participated, showcasing a range of new models. Tata unveiled a handful of new models and concepts including the Nexon CNG, Safari Red Dark, and Curvv ICE. There were also some unique concepts and performance models on display as well such as a customised Toyota Hilux, the Mercedes-Benz EQG (all-electric G-Wagon) and Lamborghini Revuelto.
