In India, the love for 7-seater SUVs has always been strong, but now, with the emergence of mid-size models, their appeal has skyrocketed. The recent launches of the Tata Safari and MG Hector Plus are clear indicators of this burgeoning trend. Looking ahead to 2024, the anticipation is palpable as the market gears up for the arrival of up to five new SUVs aiming to seize upon this surging demand. Join us as we dig into the interesting lineup of upcoming 7-seaters in today’s article.

MG Gloster Facelift

MG Motor is gearing up to give their flagship SUV, the Gloster, a major makeover. The facelifted version has been spotted testing several times, revealing significant updates to its exterior. You can expect fresh bumpers, a redesigned grille, and updated headlamps and fog lamps.

But that’s not all—there are also revisions to the tail lamps and brand new alloy wheels, giving the SUV a complete transformation. While details about the engine are still under wraps, it’s likely that the current 2.0L turbo diesel engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission will continue. Excitingly, the facelifted Gloster is set to hit the market towards the end of 2024, giving MG enthusiasts plenty to anticipate.

Kia Carnival and Kia EV9 

Kia is making waves with the introduction of two exciting models: the futuristic EV9 and the revamped Carnival. First off, the EV9 steals the spotlight as Kia’s flagship electric SUV, unveiled at the 2023 Auto Expo. Boasting a sleek design and cutting-edge technology, it offers an impressive driving range of 541 km, making it the perfect choice for environmentally conscious families seeking adventure.

Meanwhile, the fourth-generation Carnival is undergoing a significant transformation compared to its predecessor. With a fresh look both inside and out, this MPV promises an enhanced driving experience. Although specific engine details remain undisclosed, rumors suggest that the reliable 2.2L diesel engine may make a comeback.

The EV9 SUV is tipped to launch later this year, with the Carnival’s launch just on the horizon. Kia’s dual approach in the 7-seater market is set to provide customers with exciting new options and shake up the competition.

New-Gen Skoda Kodiaq

The much-awaited second generation of the Skoda Kodiaq is finally here, bringing a slew of upgrades that fans have been eagerly anticipating. Built on the advanced MQB Evo platform, this new model boasts significant enhancements in both design and features.

Get ready for a refined appearance and a range of state-of-the-art technologies that are sure to impress. While specific engine details are still under wraps, there’s speculation that the reliable 2.0L turbo petrol engine, known for its 190 PS and 320 Nm of torque, will continue to power the Indian variant. With the Kodiaq’s launch expected later this year, stay tuned for more updates as they come.

Hyundai Alcazar Facelift

Hyundai’s 7-seater SUV, the Alcazar, is also getting some new changes and according to the rumour mills the company is planning to launch the car in the middle of the year. Inspired by the updated Creta, the Alcazar facelift will have its own unique design elements. Inside, it’ll have upgrades similar to the Creta but with some exclusive touches.

There’s talk of the Alcazar facelift also having Level 2 ADAS for added safety and convenience. Expected to launch by mid-2024, the refreshed Alcazar is shaping up to be a strong competitor in the 7-seater market.

Toyota Fortuner

The beloved Toyota Fortuner is getting a modern upgrade with a mild-hybrid twist. This means the trusted GD series engine will team up with a 48-volt mild hybrid system.

The goal? To give you better fuel economy, a boost in performance, and cut down on emissions. You can expect to see this eco-friendly version of the Fortuner hitting Indian roads later this year, offering a great choice for folks who want both power and environmental friendliness.
