The first week of October was an important one for so many reasons, firstly because most automakers announced their monthly sales report that gave us a clear idea of who stands where, secondly various car makers including Maruti Suzuki, Honda, Audi, Renault and Toyota hiked their car prices to avoid the losses that they might bear due to rupee depreciation which ultimately increases their input costs. lastly, as October is considered to be the festive month in India, and all the players are ready with their festive season offerings, discounts and launches, so if everything is put together, October is no doubt a very special month in all perspective.

CarDekho covered both the launches that took place this week, new Tata Indica eV2 and Sport Editions of Mercedes-Benz C-Class and E-Class. Other than that we brought you the information about the future launches like Honda Brio Automatic, Honda City CNG, Mahindra SsangYong Rexton SUV, Renault Lodgy MPV, Volvo V40 Cross Country and Mahindra's two small cars.

So if you have missed out on anything, we bring to you the important news of the week in summary.
