Launches to look forward to in 2019
Here is list of some of the sedans which will be launched in 2019.
Sedans have kept us excited through-out the year as some of the major launches happened across the sedan segment in 2018. Moving ahead into 2019 we are looking forward to a bunch of new launches and hope they will keep up with the excitement.
Next-Generation Toyota Camry
This new model looks sharp, especially with the design of the headlamps, tailamps and ORVMs and the way haunches have been done. The all-new 2018 Toyota Camry will be based on the TNGA modular platform and under the hood will get a 2.5-litre petrol engine as standard while the Hybrid variant will get an electric motor in addition. Moreover, the engine will be mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) automatic gearbox.
2019 Audi A8
When an Audi gets a generation update it's a significant departure from its previous model and that too in almost every aspect and it has done just that in with the fourth generation Audi A8 which will arrive in India in the middle of 2019. It still looks very Audi in essence but has more muscles now which are well shredded. It's 32mm longer and 13 mm taller than the model it replaces and also weighs 100 kg more. Get inside and there is nothing like old or passe now. The cabin has been ubiquitously updated and of course, the dual-touchscreens remain the highlight. The mechanicals, specifically the active AI suspension are very advanced now as they lift up to 40 mm when they sense any side impact and moreover adjust their height and stiffness detecting the tarmac ahead.
2019 BMW 3-Series
The 3-Series is one of the most crucial products for BMW not only in India but also globally as it introduces many to the family. The new 3-Series has now become more in-line to the family design which has gone sharper and is quite reflected in its face, specifically the bumpers and the headlamps. It has also grown in dimensions- 76 mm in length, 16 mm in width and 1 mm in length. The cabin is again a step-up than its predecessor which itself didn't give us any reason to complain. The layout is clean with fewer buttons and a big 12.3-inch screen has taken the centre stage which is connected to the latest iDrive 7.0. Speaking of iDrive, the new 3-Series is a step-ahead than the competitors as the feature list is extensive and it gets a very cool "Siri" like voice-command system which you can also give your personal name. There will be a 2.0-litre petrol motor and a 2.0-litre diesel engine on offer in the new BMW 3-Series.
2019 Hyundai Elantra
The 2019 Hyundai Elantra has got a new face which looks even more edgy housing a large grille and sleek headlamps also have LED DRLs integrated now. In fact the side and rear profiles have also been tweaked and there have been changes in the styling. For instance, the rear license plate area has moved to the bumper from the boot lid and the boot integrated duck-tail spoiler looks more prominent now. The cabin of the new Hyundai Elantra is also new and the layout is somewhat similar to the last-generation Audi A4. The top-spec Elantra is equipped with an 8.0-inch infotainment system which supports Apple Car Play and Android Auto. There are some highly advanced safety features too in the global spec model like Pedestrian Detection and Safe Exit Asist which alerts the passengers of a possible danger situation while exiting the car. The 2019 Hyundai Elantra will get a 2.0-litre petrol engine and 1.6-litre diesel motor which will be mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox as standard.
