Rs 80 Lakh
Starting off the list with one of the highest-selling luxury car brands in India, Audi is set to launch the facelifted Q7 that comes to replace the previous SUV in the country in 2020. While the Covid-19 virus pandemic has slowed things down and caused the launch of Audi Q7 to be delayed at a later date, we expect the upcoming Audi Q7 SUV could come to us within the year-end, possibly in December of 2020.
The Audi Q7 facelift will be loaded with premium features on the inside and out and becomes more powerful on the mechanical front. The impressive features on the new Q7 include Audi Virtual Cockpit, two touchscreens for the infotainment system, a 12.3-inch LCD digital instrument cluster, 3D surround sound with high-quality HD radio technology, keyless entry, rain-sensing wipers, auto drive, cruise control, panoramic sunroof, 360-degree camera among others.

Also, there’s a 3.0-litre TFSI petrol burner generating 335 PS/ 369 Nm of torque. Both engines will come mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic automatic transmission combined with the Quattro all-wheel-drive system. The Audi Q7 facelift is expected to be priced higher than the existing model which now starts from Rs 69.22 lakh (ex-showroom).
The list of upcoming cars in India under 1 crore can’t see the absence of a Mercedes and we are setting out to seenew E-Class 2020 coming in the pipeline. For those searching for the new Mercedes E-Class launch timeline in India, the German luxury carmaker has revealed that the saloon will reach our shores during the first half of next year.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2020 will receive some minor design changes on the outside and inside, in the form of new wider brake lights, more rounded LED headlights, split tail lamps, new bumper and boot lid, slightly refreshed front grille, new steering, latest-gen MBUX multimedia system, new wheel, body colours and interior theme options, etc.
Powering the new E-Class will be two engine options, a 254 PS BS6-ready 2.0-litre petrol engine and a 256 PS BS6-spec 3.0-litre V6 petrol unit, all paired with a mild-hybrid system. The diesel range, in the meantime, gets a 2.0-litre and a 3.0-litre oil burner, both of which features an expanded emission control system. Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class (long-wheelbase version) is the brand’s best-selling model in our market, it will be exciting to see the new updated E-Class
3. Jaguar I-Pace
Dual Electric Motors
Rs 58 lakh
Jaguar’s first all-electric SUV, the Jaguar I-Pace is the next model in the list of upcoming cars in India under 1 crore. While the global-spec Jaguar I-Pace has gone on sale since 2018, the India-spec car is set to hit the market in late 2020 or early 2021. The Jaguar I-Pace will join the premium EV segment in India with the price estimated at around Rs 58 lakh (ex-showroom).
By housing an electric motor on each axle, the Jaguar I-Pace will deliver up to 400 PS of power that propels it from 0 to 100 kmph in only 4.8 seconds.

As claimed by the company, the battery can be charged with enough power to run 270 kilometres via a 50 kW DC charger in just 60 minutes. The 7 kW AC charger will take about 10 hours to charge the battery to 80 per cent.
As far as the design is concerned, the Jaguar I-Pace looks quite elegant yet sporty on the outside. The car features a lip spoiler along with a raked rear windscreen to give it a crossover look. At the front, the Jaguar I-Pace boasts of stretched LED headlamps with a regular front grille that gives it a bulky face.
Spotting the roaring demand for the SUV segment in the Indian market, Audi India has officially announced that its all-new Q5 SUV will make it to our country sometime next year. The Audi Q5 has been doing extremely well in many other countries like UK and US hence we expect it brings just the same set of excitement once it’s launched in our country.
The all-new Audi Q5 2021 will derive the power from a BS6-compliant 2.0-litre TFSI turbo-petrol engine that’s capable of developing 248 PS of power and 273 Nm of peak torque. This mill will be coupled with a 7-speed S-Tronic DCT unit that, like the Q7, boasts of a Quattro AWD system.

The Ford Mustang, though currently not sold in India, is set to make a comeback to the Indian market by early 2021. While the older Mustang was one of the most successful sports cars in India, the new upcoming Ford Mustang 2021 is believed to continue its legacy of a king of muscle cars and appeal to many thanks to its strong performance and excellent driving manners and an attractive look.
That said, the 2021 Ford Mustang will be definitely the talk of the town among the sports car fans in India.

Power will be delivered to the wheels via a 6-speed MT as standard and a 10-speed automatic transmission as an option. The new Ford Mustang will also be available with an RWD system for the driving experience.

For the uninitiated, the Audi TT is a classic coupe that carries strong family ties with the iconic Volkswagen Beetle. Although not much has been known about Audi TT 2021, we anticipate that the car will join the list of cars under 1 crore on sale in the Indian space.
The Audi TT 2021 will come with quite similar specifications to the previous-gen model. Powering the new TT will be a 2.5-litre turbo-petrol engine tuned to produce 394 PS of power and 354 Nm of peak torque and no doubts, it will be BSVI compliant.

Recently, Kia revealed the Stinger facelift to the world’s enthusiasts before its official launch in the home market, South Korea. While the carmaker remains silent on the Indian launch of the Stinger, the South Korean carmaker has showcased the car in its high-performance GT variant in India in 2018 so it’s safe to expect the Kia Stinger to be launched in our country sometime next year.
The Kia Stinger is really something that’s worth waiting for. Powering the Kia Stinger will be a 2.0-litre petrol engine rated at 247 PS of power and 353 Nm of peak torque.

In the world’s automotive markets, the Tesla Model 3 is one of the most popular cars and it’s expected to turn many heads once it makes its entry into India. With the EVs becoming more and more popular in our country, the expectation of a Tesla car like the Model 3 to launch in India someday is convincing.
The Tesla Model 3 sources the power from a 50 kWh Lithium-ion battery for the standard variant and a 75 kWh lithium-ion battery for the more powerful version. The battery can return a driving range of 354 km for the standard model while that of the more powerful variant is even at 534 km on a full single charge.
