Meanwhile, Hyundai is also aggressively expanding its range in the mass segments.

It will launch the ‘Grand i10’ sedan by middle of next year to compete with the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, which is the second-largest selling car in the country at about 14,000 monthly volumes. Honda already has the Amaze in the segment which sells about 8,000 units a month. Hyundai is also reported to be working on a compact SUV and compact MPV for emerging markets like India, which will be launched from 2015 onwards.

Maruti too is working hard and will launch a new small car to replace the A-Star early next year, followed by a new mid-size sedan to replace the ageing SX4. This will be followed by multiple models in theUV segment, such as a crossover and compact SUV, starting 2015. While other players like Ford, Renault, Nissan also have plans to launch new models in the mass segments, none of them is expected to have a model range spanning across mini and compact hatches, entry sedan and compact SUV/MPV segments in the forseeable near future.
