The Indian car market is slowly moving towards a global model in terms of models being offered. They might be customised to the Indian road conditions but they are still based on global designs and so, here are some India-bound cars that have been spotted testing in April.
The latest Toyota Corolla may just be a year old but that has not stopped the Japanese automaker from already working on the next generation model that has been spied testing. It’s expected to sport an evolutionary design and will most likely be offered with electric power when it is launched.
Kia has already said that SP will be the car that will open their Indian innings. Once the pace is set, Kia is expected to bring forth a slew of cars to the country including the next-gen Sportage that will be a rival to the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and Mistubishi Pajero Sport. Expect to see it here post 2021.
Second generation Range Rover Evoque
The next generation Range Rover Evoque will be an underpinned evolutionary version of the current car’s D8 platform. This 2020 model is expected to spawn at least one hybrid but will also offer standard petrol and diesel powertrain options across the range.
Audi TT RS facelift
This facelift for the current generation TT will come by 2020 and what we have in the pictures is the RS high performance version. The positioning of the camouflage indicates a new face and rear to give the car a mid-life update.
Next Generation BMW X5
The pictures show a new BMW X5 undergoing performance testing, and at the mighty Nurburgring no less. The heavy camouflage and open grille suggest that these are early stages in testing the car. So, in all likelihood, it is still quite a bit away from reaching the production line.
