Car manufacturers prefer launching their cars before the festive season to ride the surge in demand. With the festive season extending till Christmas, here are four cars that are expected to be launched in the month of December.
The Nissan GT-R is the latest machine in the Skyline series that has gained a cult following owing to its mix of affordability and performance. The R35 doesn’t get the Skyline badge but continues to get the mind-numbing performance and at a price that certainly can be termed affordable for its abilities. The GT-R will make its debut on December 2.
2. Volvo XC90 R-Design
The XC90 has been Volvo’s most successful launch in India till date. The Swedish car maker has already launched the flagship T8 Hybrid and is now slated to bring the R-Design trim to India in the month of December. Powered by the standard 2.0-litre diesel engine, the R-Design is a plush XC90 with new alloys, premium interior and outspoken styling.
3. Volvo V40 facelift
Earlier this year, Volvo has announced the arrival of the Volvo V40 facelift. Since it is an update, the mechanicals and the body shell will remain the same. It will get the new Thor’s hammer headlamps and a reworked fascia to resemble the XC90 and the S90 along with updated interior. It will also get the new Volvo infotainment system.
We have driven the Volkswagen Passat GTE already and were promised that the flagship sedan form the German car maker will make its India debut in 2016. We expect the hybrid D-segment sedan to be launched this month. It will compete with the likes of the Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Accord Hybrid along with the Skoda Superb.
