New cars for 2017: Upcoming sedans

Here's an exhaustive list of the new sedans to be launched this year.

2017 is all set for the appearance of some spectacular sedans. BMW is set to bring in the new  5-series; Volkswagen, the Passat; while Hyundai is set to breathe life back into the Verna with an all-new model. Other notable inclusions are the launch of the all-new Essentia compact sedan from Chevrolet and a few more. 

Here is the longlist of sedans expected in the coming months.

 

Chevrolet Essentia

Following Volkswagen’s Ameo, it’s Chevrolet that’s now going the made-in-India, make-for-India way with the Essentia. It’s a sub-four-metre compact sedan based on the next-gen Beat hatchback that will arrive in 2017. Positioned half a segment below compact sedans like the Swift Dzire, the Essentia will rival Tata’s upcoming Tiago-based compact sedan. However, despite its compact dimensions, the near production-ready concept showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo revealed how well Chevrolet managed to pull off the sedan shape. More importantly, it packs quite a spacious interior for its size. The carmaker also plans on giving the car a premium interior and upmarket features like its MyLink touchscreen infotainment system.
Besides the underpinnings, the sedan will also share the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines with the Beat hatchback.

Coming: 2017
Price: Rs 4.5-7 lakh
Engine: 1.0 P, 1.0 D
