Hyundai Verna

New Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire: One of the most successful and inexpensive sedans in the Indian market, the Swift Dzire from Maruti Suzuki is up for a facelift soon this year. The car will undergo a major overhaul and will come with many new features like cruise control, keyless entry and also button start. The drivetrain will remain the same with a 1.3-litre fuel efficient multijet diesel engine under its hood.

Facelifted Tata Safari Storme: Tata Safari Storme was first introduced in the year 2012, and has been one of the best options for people looking for an inexpensive big car. Safari Storme will be getting a major facelift this year, especially inside the cabin, where many new features are expected to be added. The car will feature the same 2.2-litre engine, but the power output might be increased from 140 bhp to 150 bhp.
