As health and economic news take precedence, you might have missed out on these new car launches. Here’s a memory refresher

Carmakers have had to shut down not just their dealerships but also their manufacturing facilities as the lockdown came in effect. But even during these times, they continued to launch new products without much pomp and show. Most of these are BS6 upgrades of existing models while a few are all-new offerings. Let’s look at what’s what.

Hyundai Verna Facelift Launched In India, Prices Start At Rs 9.31 Lakh

Hyundai: Verna Facelift, Grand i10 Nios CNG

Hyundai launched the facelifted Verna just days after the lockdown began. It comes with cosmetic enhancements and a choice of three engine options and multiple automatic transmissions. The facelifted Verna’s prices range between Rs 9.31 lakh and Rs 15.10 lakh. 

Additionally, you can also buy the CNG variant of the Grand i10 Nios which is priced at Rs 6.63 lakh. You’ll have to spend an additional Rs 73,000 over the corresponding petrol variant.

The GO siblings have also been updated to meet the stricter BS6 emission norms. This has resulted in a higher entry level price point but the top variants are, interestingly, cheaper than before

Mahindra’s BS6 Cars: KUV100 NXT, Bolero, XUV300, Scorpio, XUV500 & Alturas G4

Tata Nexon

Tata recently launched the Nexon XZ+S variant which has a starting price of Rs 10.10 lakh. It’s based on the XZ(O) variant but gets a sunroof added in the mix. Here’s the detailed pricing of this new variant

Volkswagen Polo

VW Polo, Vento

Volkswagen’s Polo and the Vento also saw an upgrade to meet the stricter BS6 norms. The hatchback has lost out on a diesel engine and the 1.2-litre TSI petrol engine. It has even lost the 7-speed DCT that made it a compelling purchase in its segment. It’s only sold with a 1.0-litre MPI and a spanking new 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine. Prices start at Rs 5.83 lakh and end at Rs 9.60 lakh. 

The Vento has also let go of its diesel engine and makes do with just a 1.0-litre TSI. Its prices range between 8.86 lakh and Rs 13.29 lakh. 

Toyota Camry Hybrid

Toyota Camry BS6

The executive luxury sedan from Toyota has received a BS6 upgrade to its 2.5-litre petrol hybrid powertrain. With the price needle stuck at Rs 37.88 lakh, it's Rs 93,000 more expensive than the BS4 model. 

We expect more manufacturers to reveal prices of BS6 variants of their existing models as the lockdown rules are eased. As of now, only a few dealerships are operational that too in green and orange zones.
