Upcoming Cars in India in December 2021

Maruti Suzuki launched the new-generation Celerio in India just last month. The Celerio gets a new 1.0-litre K10C naturally-aspirated petrol motor that develops 65 hp of power and 89 Nm of peak torque. Now, the company is planning to launch a CNG version of the same.

Tata Tiago CNG

Tata Motors is expected to launch its first CNG car in India this month. The new Tata Tiago CNG has been spotted on test several times before. Moreover, the unofficial bookings for the same are already open at select Tata Motors dealerships in Delhi-NCR.

New Kia Carens 

Kia’s fourth product for the Indian market, Kia Carens, will make its world premiere in India on December 16, 2021. The all-new Kia Carens will be an MPV with SUV-like cues. However, the company is marketing it as a ‘Recreational Vehicle’. It is expected to share its underpinnings and mechanicals with the Seltos. However, it will get a longer wheelbase to accommodate the additional third row of seats.
