The Indian automotive market is set to welcome an exciting lineup of 7-seater internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles in 2024, showcasing an array of SUVs and MPVs from renowned brands like Hyundai, Kia, Toyota, MG, and Skoda. These models promise to elevate the driving experience with their advanced features, sophisticated design, and powerful performance. Let’s delve into the anticipated arrivals:

1. New-Generation Kia Carnival and Kia EV9

Kia is gearing up to revolutionize the premium 7-seater segment with its upcoming offerings. The new-generation Carnival is expected to bring a significant overhaul in design and features while possibly retaining its potent 2.2L diesel engine. The highlight, however, is the Kia EV9 – an all-electric SUV unveiled globally, boasting an impressive 541 km range and a plethora of high-end features. The EV9 is likely to grace Indian shores via the CBU route later this year.

2. All-New Skoda Kodiaq

The Skoda Kodiaq is set for a major update with its second generation, poised to launch in India by the year-end. The new model will sit on the advanced MQB Evo platform and is expected to retain the 2.0L turbo petrol engine, delivering 190 PS and 320 Nm. This iteration will feature a fresh design language and upgraded tech, enhancing its appeal in the competitive SUV market.

3. Toyota Fortuner Mild Hybrid

Toyota plans to introduce a mild-hybrid version of its popular Fortuner, incorporating a 48-volt system paired with the GD series engine. This upgrade aims to improve fuel efficiency, boost performance, and lower emissions. Slated for release later this year, this version will further cement the Fortuner’s stronghold in the premium SUV segment.

4. MG Gloster Facelift

The MG Gloster is on the brink of receiving a facelift, with the updated version expected to hit the market by the end of this year. Spy shots suggest new bumpers, a refreshed grille, and revamped lighting elements. The mechanicals are likely to remain the same, with the robust 2.0L turbo diesel engine continuing to power the SUV.

5. Hyundai Alcazar Facelift

Hyundai’s Alcazar is set to receive a mid-cycle facelift, aligning it with the extensively updated Creta. Expected to launch around mid-2024, the facelifted Alcazar will feature distinct design tweaks and upgraded interiors, potentially including Level 2 ADAS among other advanced features, distinguishing it from its 5-seater counterpart.
