It’s nearly mid-2022, and automakers are already hard at work preparing cars and SUVs for release during the holiday season later that year. However, the month of June 2022 will see a number of launches, particularly from mass-market brands such as Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai, and Kia. We’ve compiled a list of upcoming car and SUV launches and unveilings.
The Kia EV 6:
Kia India’s flagship electric crossover, which will use the Hyundai Group’s E-GMP architecture, will be released in limited quantities soon. The India-spec EV6 will most likely have a 77.4kWh battery pack and be available in two configurations: rear-wheel-drive, single-motor (229hp and 350Nm), and all-wheel-drive, dual-motor (325hp and 605Nm).

Virtus of Volkswagen:
The VW Virtus, the Skoda Slavia’s sister model, was worldwide announced in March and will be available in the next weeks. The inside of the midsize sedan is basically comparable to that of the Taigun, but with all of the bells and whistles of its SUV cousin. The Virtus will be available in two variant lines: Dynamic Line, which includes all 115hp 1.0 TSI models, and Performance Line, which includes 150hp 1.5 TSI models.

Facelift for Hyundai Venue:
The Hyundai Venue facelift will have an all-new front-end design and a big interior overhaul as part of the major mid-life cycle upgrade. The Venue facelift is projected to be powered by the same 120hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol; 115hp, 1.2-liter petrol; and 115hp, 1.5-liter diesel engines as the new Tucson SUV and the Palisade marketed in other markets.
Check out the price – it’ll be about the middle of June.
Maruti Suzuki Brezza 2.0:
Maruti Suzuki is anticipated to release the all-new Brezza before the end of June, with an all-new external appearance as shown in recent spy photographs. The inside of the small SUV is also likely to be overhauled, with features similar to those found on the Baleno and the recently announced Ertiga/XL6. The new Brezza is expected to be powered by the 103hp, 1.5-litre K15C DualJet engine used in the Ertiga and XL6, paired to either a 5-speed manual or a brand-new 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
Check the pricing by the end of June.
Scorpio-N by Mahindra:
Mahindra just released official pictures of the all-new Scorpio-N, which will be marketed alongside the existing Scorpio. The SUV is expected to be placed slightly below the popular XUV700 and to include a huge vertical touchscreen in the center of the dashboard. Following in the footsteps of the Thar and XUV700, the Scorpio-N will most likely be powered by the 2.0-liter mStallion turbo-petrol and the 2.2-liter mHawk turbo-diesel engines.

Aircross Citroen C3:
Following the C5 Aircross SUV, the French manufacturer will shortly launch its second product in the Indian market. The C3 crossover is believed to be driven by a 1.2-liter turbocharged petrol engine and will be built on the CMP modular platform that underlies Jeep’s sub-4m SUVs. The C3 will compete against the Tata Punch, Maruti Ignis, and Nissan Magnite when it arrives.
