The Indian automobile market is buzzing with anticipation as several 7-seater vehicles are set to make their debut next year. Here’s a glance at what’s in store for car enthusiasts in 2024:

Hyundai Alcazar Facelift: Early 2024 will witness Hyundai unveiling the facelifted version of Creta. Its three-row sibling, Alcazar, is also poised for a significant update. It has been spotted during tests, and expectations are rife about design modifications resembling the five-seater variant, accompanied by upgraded interiors boasting features like Level 2 ADAS.

Nissan X-Trail: Nissan showcased the X-Trail in New Delhi last year alongside Juke and Qashqai. Currently under testing on Indian roads, it’s likely to be launched in a 7-seater configuration next year. The vehicle might be equipped with either a 1.5-liter mild-hybrid petrol engine or the e-Power range extender technology.

5-Door Force Gurkha: The lifestyle off-road SUV segment could see the release of the 5-door Force Gurkha by the second quarter. Although it will offer multiple seating configurations, it remains uncertain whether its equipment list will receive updates. Powering it will be a 2.6-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine.

Next-gen Skoda Kodiaq: The latest iteration of Skoda Kodiaq was unveiled earlier this month with numerous interior and exterior enhancements, sizing up from its predecessor. With its sibling, the all-new Volkswagen Tiguan making its global debut last month, the Kodiaq’s launch in India is highly anticipated next year.
