Tata Harrier has been into the headlines for a very long time. The company's upcoming flagship SUV that comes based on the Land Rover platform will challenge the likes of the Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500 and multiple others in the segment. The new Tata Harrier will finally be launched in India on 23rd January. Powering the Tata Harrier will be a 140 bhp, 2.0-litre Kryotec diesel engine that will come mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Prices for the Tata Harrier are expected to start near the Rs 14 lakh mark (ex-showroom).
Mercedes-Benz is going to launch its most luxurious MPV in India called the V-Class. After the two highly awaited car launches on 23rd January, the new V-Class will be launched a day later in Mumbai. This new Merc will arrive Indian shores via the CBU route and hence, it might be priced north of the Rs 70 lakh (ex-showroom) mark. Being a Mercedes-Benz, expect the V-Class to come with some premium and luxury features that will put other MPVs to shame.
2019 Maruti Suzuki Wagon R
The new Maruti Suzuki Wagon R will be launched in India the same day on which the Harrier will arrive.

2019 Honda Civic
The Civic is all set to make its comeback in India in February 2019. The car was retired from the Indian market in 2015 due to poor sales but the radical change in design along with the inclusion of new features on the upcoming Civic is expected to do the trick for Honda. Powering the all-new Honda Civic will be a 2.0-litre iVTEC petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission and an optional CVT is likely to be on offer as well. The all-new Honda Civic is expected to arrive in the price range of Rs 15 lakh to Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom).
