Cars To Watch Out For In February 2021
Which new cars are expected to enter the Indian market this month?
The second month of the year will see a couple of key new launches in the Indian automotive space. It is not expected to be as busy as January or March but here are the important cars to watch out for this month:
Expected prices: Rs 15 lakh to Rs 21 lakh
Rivals: MG Hector Plus, 2021 Mahindra XUV500 (upcoming)
The all-new Safari is Tata’s new flagship, three-row SUV offering. It borrows a lot from the Harrier in terms of the powertrain, its underpinnings, styling and most feature comforts. The Safari will be offered in both 6-seater and 7-seater configurations. Its side and rear styling makes it visually distinctive from the 5-seater Harrier SUV. You can also check out our first drive impressions of the Safari here.
2021 MG ZS EV
Expected prices: Rs 21 lakh to Rs 24 lakh
Rivals: Hyundai Kona Electric
MG is bringing the ZS EV electric SUV to India with model year 2021 updates in February. The 2021 model update is expected to add a few new features along with an improved battery system. It is unlikely to get any visual updates over the current model. The current model has a claimed range of 340km with an electric motor rated at 143PS and 353Nm.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Facelift

Rivals: Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, Ford Figo, Maruti Suzuki Ignis, Renault Triber
The global-spec Swift hatchback has been given a facelift which debuted in Japan in mid-2020. It is now coming to India and has already been spied on our roads. The updates include mild cosmetic tweaks to the front fascia along with added features for comfort and safety. It is also expected to get the Dualjet version of the 1.2-litre petrol engine, as seen in the Baleno, which should offer an extra 7PS of power (over the current 83PS) and increased efficiency thanks to the idle-engine stop-start system.
Expected prices: Rs 5 lakh to Rs 9 lakh
Rivals: Nissan Magnite, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza
