Luxury Cars – Upcoming Cars coming in January 2021 » MotorOctane
2020 was a tough year overall for everyone. The automotive sector, like everything else, suffered. However things are returning to normal and we wish 2021 to be a great year ahead. New car launches which were delayed due to COVID-19 lockdown are expected in 2021. Find out below New cars coming in January 2021 in India.
Audi A4 Facelift
One of the first model launches to take place will be the new mid-size luxury sedan from Audi. The Audi A4 will be reintroduced with the new facelift model in January 2021. The automaker has already started assembling the vehicle at its plant in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. Furthermore, dealers are accepting bookings for the sedan. More about New Cars coming in January 2021 in India below.
Powering the Audi A4 will be a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbo petrol engine. The motor would be tuned to deliver 190bhp and 320Nm of torque. Whether Audi will also throw in the mild-hybrid system to make it more economical remains to be seen, but the 7-speed twin-clutch DSG transmission would be standard. However, with the whole VW Group in India going the petrol-only route, a diesel engine will not be offered on the A4.
Toyota has confirmed that the Fortuner facelift will launch in India on January 6, 2021. It seems like the facelifted model will be available in two broad trims: standard and the more premium Legender, as seen on the Thai-spec model. Ahead of its possible January launch, the Legender has been spotted testing during a TVC shoot. Spy shots of the Fortuner Legender in Bangalore have also surfaced on the internet recently. More about New Cars coming in January 2021 in India below.
The Toyota Fortuner Legender will get several styling upgrades for a refreshed look. Its nose is entirely new with a smaller mesh grille, more aggressive bumpers, a larger air intake, revised fog lamp housing, bi-LED projector headlamps, and a small skid plate. The front profile seems sharper and sportier than the facelifted model.
Powering the Fortuner 2021 will be a 2.7L petrol engine that can generate up to 163bhp of power and 245Nm of torque. There is also a 2.8L diesel engine option that is set to produce up to 201bhp of power and 500Nm of torque. Both engine options will be mated to either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed automatic transmission. They will also come with rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive options.
The Tata Gravitas is a seven-seat derivative of the Harrier, but is meant to be more than just a Harrier with an additional row of seats. The Gravitas is 63mm longer and 80mm taller than the Harrier even though both SUVs share the same wheelbase of 2,741mm. Tata Gravitas was already showcased during Auto Expo 2020 and is slated for launch in January 2021.
The Gravitas shares its styling with the Harrier till the B-pillar, after which it has unique design with a longer rear overhang and a stepped roof to accommodate the third row. Additionally, the seven-seater will also get unique alloy wheel designs and colour palettes to differentiate it further from the Harrier.

Tata Altroz Turbo
Recently, India has become obsessed with high powered engines in smaller machines. The premium hatchback segment has some great turbo petrol cars in the form of Polo and new i20. However expensive pricing may seem a barrier. The new 2021 Tata Altroz Turbo Petrol is expected to be more powerful yet cheaper than competition. Tata has announced the launch of a new Altroz variant on January 13, 2021. The variant in question will most certainly be the Tata Altroz turbo petrol which will be equipped with a 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol motor. The launch of the new variant will also be accompanied by the introduction of a new Marina Blue exterior colour.
Jeep Compass Facelift
Jeep Compass is fairly popular SUV in India. The international market has already received a facelift of the car some months ago. While the facelift is not very different, Jeep will launch it in January 2021 in India. We will see an announcement on the 7th. In terms of styling, the Jeep Compass facelift will feature revised headlights with integrated LED DRLs, an updated seven-slat grille with honeycomb-like inserts, a new front bumper with a tweaked faux skid plate and a larger air dam with new fog light housings. The SUV also get new alloy wheels.
Everything about the new Jeep Compass Facelift
A big change to the interior will be the restyled dashboard with a new floating 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and new AC vents and HVAC controls that are positioned below it. The new touchscreen will come with FCA’s UConnect 5 infotainment system and is likely to feature integrated Amazon Alexa support, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, and receive over-the-air (OTA) updates.
BMW 3 Series Grand Limousine
The popular choice for anyone looking for a fun-to-drive luxury mid-size sedan has been the BMW 3 Series. The only flaw in that if one would nit-pick is space in the rear. Now BMW play to address it with the launch of the 3 Series Gran Limousine. Essentially a long-wheelbase version of the same vehicle will be launch on January 21. It will rival Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Jaguar XE and the upcoming Volvo S60.
MG Hector Facelift
2021 MG Hector Facelift is going to have a different design for the front bumper. The lights will get chrome surrounds and the daytime running lights might get dynamic swipe indicators. Minor other design changes can be seen on the car. The facelift buyer can demand more money during resale as it will be clear that it is a model year update.
