As reported earlier this 13th edition of the Expo is going to be even more grand and stunning than the earlier installments. Like every time, this year will also witness all the important brands of the automobile industry with their new and updated production models as well as concepts.

Auto Expo 2016 India

In order to render you a brief idea about what all can you expect at the biennial event, we have prepared a list of all the upcoming cars to be displayed at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo, as follows:

Maruti Suzuki

Vitara Brezza

The latest sensational compact SUV named Vitara Brezza is going to make its debut on 3rd February at the auto expo this year. It’s fitted with numerous wow factors and will hopefully find a special place in the audience’s heart, just like every other Maruti product.


Suzuki Ignis

Ignis is a micro SUV and is extremely important for the Japanese brand. It’s based on the iM-4 concept that was presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2015. Though the company has not yet disclosed anything about bringing this model to the Indian showrooms for sale, but it is likely to be a part of the Expo.


Baleno RS Concept

Well, as the name suggests, it’s going to be a concept model based on the highly successful Maruti Baleno which was launched in October. The concept will be tweaked slightly to make it sportier and will be packed with a 1 litre BoosterJet turbocharged petrol engine. However, some of you may find it disappointing that the RS will not be brought to the country for sale anytime soon.

Hyundai Motors

Hyundai Santa Fe Facelift

The SUV model Santa Fe in the Hyundai lineup is going to be presented with an updated and refurbished version in the form of a facelift. This would mean that it will be upgraded with certain cosmetic tweaks to make it more appealing than the outgoing version. It is being anticipated that the model could be launched soon after the auto expo.


Hyundai Tucson

The famous Tucson model, which has quite a lot of fan following in the global market is being planned to be introduced at the Indian showrooms for sale and hence before that Hyundai is making sure that the Tucson gets a proper chance to captivate its prospective buyers at the expo itself.


2016 Hyundai Elantra

In order to keep ahead of the rival sedans, Hyundai has planned to launch the next generation Elantra which will be showcased at the auto expo. The model has already been unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2015, hence this is going to mark its Indian debut.

Honda Car India

Honda BR-V

One of the main attractions from Honda is going to be the upcoming BR-V, which has already been teased at various platforms. It is based on the same platform that underpins Brio, while certain design cues are borrowed from Honda Mobilio as well as the Vision XS-1 concept.


Honda Accord

Due to insufficient demand the Accord had to be withdrawn, but this time it’s going make a comeback in the market with some appealing and attractive factors. Before it’s launched, the sedan will make its way to the auto expo so as to register its presence in the minds of the audience. It is going to be offered in a petrol as well as a petrol hybrid variant.


Tata Motors

Tata Zica Compact Sedan

The name of the car is still unknown but it is sure to be inspired from the much talked about Zica hatchback. As per some market reports this upcoming model will replace the Idigo CS, which now has been restricted to the commercial segment.


Tata Hexa

Based on the Aria crossover, Tata is planning to launch an SUV named Hexa, which will be a re-worked version of the former. It will be donning a re-styled exterior body, while the interiors will be changed to a great extent. Even though, Aria failed to impress the customers, Tata is hoping that Hexa could compensate that loss. The concept model has been already unveiled, but the automaker is yet to disclose the production spec.



KUV100 [Already Launched]

Launched at just INR 4.49 Lacs, this micro SUV is already giving a tough time to its rivals in the INR 4-6 Lacs price bracket. It is adorned with a spacious cabin and some highly appealing comfort features inside. Though it’s not a typical SUV, yet it flaunts a muscular stance. The car also made headlines when actor Varun Dhawan was approached to promote it in various print media advertisements and TV commercials.


XUV500 Automatic

One of the most muscular and famous SUVs since so many years, the XUV500 saw the launch of an automatic variant, which has been packed with a 6-speed transmission facility. However, due to rising air pollution and strict norms, the automaker had to suffer huge losses and ultimately a new sub-2000 cc diesel engine was introduced for the SUV.


Mahindra Quanto Facelift

Since the Quanto couldn’t succeed in the market, Mahindra is planning to launch a facelift of the model soon after the Auto Expo. Mahindra only sells heavy vehicles and hence it would be interesting to see how the automaker promotes and place this facelift so as to distinguish it from the rest of them, especially when TUV300 is already on sale.



2016 Toyota Innova

The next generation Innova will be nothing like the earlier version and even it’s name is likely to be changed to Innova Crysta. Some reports even suggest that the automaker could continue to sell the current Innova, since Crysta will be more superior and hence will be priced in a different range. Well, the confirmed details will only be disclosed by Toyota, but till then we choose to excitedly wait for Innova’s debut at the Delhi Auto Expo.


2016 Toyota Fortuner

The most awaited Ford EcoSport rival is not going to be launched anytime soon, but it will surely be a part of the expo. Reportedly, the Fortuner has successfully managed to perform decently, thereby surviving tough competition from its rivals and hence, the company is in no hurry to introduce the next generation Fortuner until early 2017.

Kwid AMT

Basking in the huge success made by Renault Kwid, the automobile brand decided to equip the hatch with an AMT unit. This variant will be packed with a 1 litre engine under its hood and will be comparatively more powerful. At the event, the AMT Kwid is likely to be equipped with a 5-speed unit borrowed from Magneti Marelli.

Renault Duster Facelift

In order to stay ahead of the rivals, Renault is planning to launch a facelift version of the successful Duster for the Indian market, which will be unveiled at the Auto expo event. It will get a cosmetic makeover, while mechanically it will be introduced with an AMT gearbox.



Volkswagen Ameo

This upcoming compact sedan will be largely identical to the Polo hatch and will be termed as Ameo, which means “I Love”. The exterior will be similar to Polo in terms of the front portions, while the rear end could make you remember about the Vento. Mechanically it is likely to be same as the Polo with both diesel and petrol powertrains.


VW Passat

The executive sedan VW Passat was discontinued due to poor sales as it failed to make an impression on the buyers. This time around, VW is all set to introduce the new Passat which will not only grow in size, but price as well. Well, we hope this time it is able to find a place in the market among so many rival models.

VW Tiguan

The next generation VW Tiguan is going to be launched soon this year and hence an Auto Expo showcase makes sense. It will be presented in a 7-seater avatar and will be pitted against the likes of Honda CR-V and Hyundai Santa Fe.


VW Beetle

Though the iconic Beetle has already been launched in India at INR 28.73 Lacs, it will be displayed at the event alongside other VW offerings. The next generation model has received subtle changes at certain portions, but overall the car has retained its quirky and vintage look.



Chevrolet Spin

After failing to serve the needs of the buyers in the MUV segment with the likes of Tavera and Enjoy, this time Chevrolet is going to try its luc with the new Spin MPV, which will be made a part of the expo. It will have to face some really serious competition from the Maruti Ertiga, Renault Lodgy and Honda Mobilio.


Cruze Facelift

Before launching the next generation Cruze model in India, General Motors is planning to showcase the facelift of the sedan at the Delhi Auto Expo. The age old model has already been finding it difficult to survive with intense competition from Elantra, Corolla and Octavia. Hence, the automaker is hoping to roll out this facelift as a remedial measure till the next generation model gets ready.


New Beat Concept

Although the new generation Beat that was rolled out globally, did not come to the Indian shores, here’s a new concept based on that model which will be presented at the expo. The Beat concept is likely to be called the Beat Cross and as per the teaser image, it is seen to be largely identical to the international Beat, currently on sale.



Nissan X-Trail

The X-Trail from Nissan is gearing up for a launch in the Indian market in an all new version and it looks quite promising. There aren’t any such major launches by the automaker this year and hence X-Trail could be the only saviour for the brand, considering its not so good condition.


Nissan GTR

After making a debut at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo, this flagship sports model is going to be launched soon in India. It will be powered by a 3.8 litre biturbo V6 engine that will efficiently make 554Bhp at 6400 rpm alongside 632Nm of peak torque, which is transmitted to all the four wheels. It can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in just 2.7 seconds with the top speed reaching to 310 Kmph.



Redi Go

The concept model for Redi Go was presented by the company at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo and at this edition, its production spec will be displayed. Rival models like Maruti Alto and Renault Kwid will be challenged by this upcoming hatch.


Go Cross

The Go Cross Concept made its entry to the Tokyo Motor Show and this time the production version will be put on display. As the name indicates, it is based on the GO + MPV and will be largely identical to the concept for the obvious reasons.


Fiat Chrysler

Fiat Egea

The age old Linea is finally going to be replaced by the new Egea model, which is much needed at the moment. Reports also indicate that a hatch version of this sedan will also be arriving to the Indian shores so as to replace the Punto model.


Fiat Linea Abarth

The rumour mill is suggesting that soon Abarth powered Linea could be introduced in the Indian market much like that found with the Avventura and Punto models. Mechanically, it will be packed with the same 1.4 litre engine and some sporty cosmetic features are also expected to be there.


Punto Pure

It’s nothing but the pre-facelit version of Punto, which was left unsold in the year 2014. Hence, the Punto Pure is a new name given to the unsold stock to make people believe that they are being offered something new.  Although nothing has been confirmed officially, but we expect that this model could be displayed at the event.



Ford Mustang

Ford has already carried on all the important launches in the country, namely Figo hatch, Figo Aspire and the new Endeavour. Hence all it is left with is the sensational Ford Mustang. With this offering, the brand is going to mark its presence in the Indian market in the two door coupe segment. It might give you a hint of Jaguar XE at first sight, considering its ravishing looks.


Mercedes Benz

Mercedes GLC

In the luxury SUV segment, this model is one of the most awaited models, which will be slotted between the GLA and GLE Class. It is nothing but the refurbished version of the outgoing GLK that has received a new name. The car will be borrowing its design cues from the C-Class and will rival the likes of BMW X3, Audi Q5, Volvo XC60 and Land Rover Discovery Sport.


Mercedes GLE Coupe

The coupe version of GLE Class, which has already been launched in the Indian car bazaar is also going to make its way to the auto expo. Just like it’s rival BMW X6, it is a combination of a sports and a muscular SUV. The GLE 450 AMG coupe retailed at INR 86.40 Lacs is being sold in the market adorned with features like sunroof, chrome exhaust tips, COMMAND infotainment system, etc.

Mercedes GLE Coupe

Mercedes GLS

BMW Cars

New 7- Series

The next generation 7 Series has already made its way to the international markets, while for India, the latest version is anticipated to arrive in the country by the first half of the ongoing year. Interestingly, the current model is finding it difficult to face the tough fight imposed by Mercedes S Class and hence BMW is adamant on bringing its new avatar as soon as possible.


2016 X1

In order to be able to fight for the market share with rivals like Audi Q3 and Mercedes Benz GLA, The new X1 is being prepared for the Indian car bazaar, which will be loaded with even more style and space as compared to the outgoing version. Under the hood, it would be packed with a 2 litre diesel motor married to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and its RWD is going to be replaced by an FWD setup.


3 Series Facelift

Being a facelift version, the latest 3 series will be tweaked cosmetically, thereby receiving transformed portions like revamped front & rear bumpers, re-styled LED tail lamps, and a pair of LED headlamps.
