Here is a continuation of the series of the new cars for the year 2012. The last time, we had uploaded some fantastic cars which are lined up for the year 2012. Here are some more additions to the list.
As a manufacturer, Ford have got all the things right what with the Figo amassing huge numbers and to complement it, they have also launched the all new Ford Fiesta. Come 2012 and Ford have got some more vehicles lined up.
2012 Ford Fiesta hatch:
Ford may have gone wrong with the 2011 Ford Fiesta, however the hatchback is something wherein the manufacturer is pinning all its hopes. The internet is abuzz with the photos of the Fiesta hatchback captured around Ford’s Marimalai Nagar plant. It is said that the hatch would get the same engine options as its sedan sibling. It would compete with the i20 and hence pricing would be a critical factor given that the i20 has an auto variant as well. Anything above Rs 6 lakhs and the Honda Jazz’s failure would look to be mirrored.
2012 Ford Endeavor:
There is an all new Endeavor headed to India come 2012. Ford’s global design philosophy is something that would be etched on the face of this SUV. Better interior materials as also a new revised engine is the one that Ford is hoping to bank upon. An all new 2.2 liter motor producing 150 Bhp would be the trump card for Ford India. The transmission would also be a 6 speed unit both in auto and manual guise. Feature laden would be the other name for this new vehicle.
The Japanese manufacturer has had quite ups and downs as regards to its products and sales figures in 2011, however for the year 2012, Honda would be bringing in some new models.
2012 Honda CR-V:
Honda have been teasing the automotive world with an image of their 2012 Honda CR-V. However, knowing Honda, this thing would soon be a reality. Aggression is written large on this soft-roader’s face and an all new platform would also be used for this vehicle. Moreover, there are big chances that Honda would be assembling this vehicle in India. But 2012 wouldn’t see this Honda having a diesel engine under its hood for sure. We would have to wait until 2013 for this.
2012 Honda Civic:
Honda has been long talking about bringing in an all new Civic and the one that we got here was a mild refresh as far as the exteriors were concerned and lest we forget a sunroof as well. However the 2012 Civic that would be coming our way would be a far tamer beast as far as the looks are concerned. However, in the interiors department, the Civic still retains its essence and that means the interiors would be awe inspiring. A power bump is expected on the cards with talks of 140 Bhp floating around. The same diesel engine which would be used in the Honda CR-V would be making its debut in here as well. The best part is that Honda has learnt its lessons and the pricing for the Civic would be killer.
The Korean has been the mainstay of many a launches in India in 2011 and 2012 would be a relatively tamer season for it.
2012 Hyundai Elantra:
Hyundai would be bringing back its Civic challenger, the Elantra and this one would be making a strong come-back. Modern Hyundai design cues is what it would be all about. Not to mention that the interiors would also be a class apart. Space provided inside the car would also be in the leagues of the Civic or even one step ahead. However, Hyundai’s philosophy of bringing in both petrol and diesel motors at the same time would earn them dividends and rumors are there that a 1.8 liter petrol and 1.8 liter diesel would be there from the onset. Value for money is what all Hyundai cars promise and this one wouldn’t be too far off the mark either.
2012 Hyundai Sonata:
The 2010 or even the 2011 Hyundai Sonata didn’t catch the luxury car buyers fantasy just because it didn’t have the eye catching looks or even the features to offer. The 2012 model would be a radical change as far as the looks are concerned. The interiors would be no different as well. They would be all radical and feature rich. A choice of both diesel and petrol motors as also auto and manual transmission would be offered on this executive car.
