In the past two months auto manufacturers have shown signs of growth which is a positive sign for the Indian auto industry. Let`s take a quick look at the 4 upcoming launches which will happen in the month of July 2014.
VW Polo 2014 (Launch date: 15 July)
The best looking hatch in India gets a slight refresh on the exterior and an updated interior. The most important change would be under the hood. The updated polo would get the new 1.5 litre diesel engine instead of the old 1.2 litre oil burner. This new motor would make the Polo the most powerful diesel hatch in its class.

AMG series cars stand out for their performance and the CLA45 AMG stands true to its pedigree. It has oodles of performance on tap to keep you entertained with it looks and performance. Under the hood is a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine producing 355 BHP and 450Nm of torque. This would be the cheapest AMG available in India.
BMW 7-Series ActiveHybrid (Launch date: 23rd July)
This would be BMW`s first hybrid car in India and will set the launch pad for future hybrid powered cars like the i8 and i3. Make no mistake this luxury saloon can do a 0 – 100 sprint in 5.7 and at the same time save the world from global warming. The 7-series ActiveHybrid comes with a 3.0 litre V6 petrol engine coupled with an electric motor. Expect this one to priced at around 1.75 crores which makes it only accessible to the elite class.
Honda Mobilio (Launch date: 23rd July)
The Mobilio is the next “big bang” from Honda. The last two launches – Amaze and Honda City have set the cash registers ringing and we`re sure the Mobilio will hit the bulls eye. It would be available with both diesel and petrol engine options. This 7 seater MPV from Honda will be launched on the 23rd July.
