New Mahindra Scorpio

The new-gen Mahindra Scorpio is going to rev into the Indian market by June-July this year. With the latest model, we're getting an all-new design for the interior that's also laced with numerous other features. A special feature of the upcoming SUV is a forward-facing third-row seat. This means that the car will be larger in size. The engine options include two capacities — 2.0L turbo petrol and 2.2L turbo-diesel.

Toyota Urban Cruiser

Similar in its features to the Maruti Brezza, Toyota's new Urban Cruiser is also among the top 10 upcoming cars in India for 2022. The SUV will come packing in a lot of new features including an eclectic range of colors and combinations for the cabin. The engine will be the same as before, with a 1.5L capacity, with the grille also remaining the same.

Citroen C3

One of the most anticipated cars of 2022 the Citroen C3 is a premium hatchback. With its trademark build, design, and a plethora of colors to choose from, the C3 is arriving with an impressive list of features. Talking about features, you are getting a 10-inch capacitative touchscreen infotainment system. One other significant USP of this anticipated car is its pricing. The company claims that the pricing of the car will be in the affordable range, which means we can expect the Citroen C3 price to fall somewhere between Rs. 6 lakh to Rs. 10 lakh. Citroen C3's impressive stats make it one of the obvious picks for the DaxStreet top 10 upcoming cars in India compilation.

Maruti YFG SUV

Competing against the likes of Hyundai Creta and the Kia Seltos the new Maruti YFG will be a mid-size SUV. We can expect the car to enter the market by the end of this year. Not much is currently known about the interiors and design but we do know that the car will be based on Toyota's DNGA platform, as well as feature its 'Strong Hybrid' petrol engine.

New Hyundai Tucson

The newest Hyundai Tucson has already performed very well in the US and European markets. Now the car is revving up towards the Indian market and there are a couple of things to get excited about. One of the most visually appealing and striking cars on this list, the Hyundai Tucson carries its sportiness while exuding a certain sensuality. The feature list is long and some of the most significant ones include a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with car-to-home communication, brilliant climate control, as well as other appliance control features.

Skoda Slavia

Skoda Slavia is entering the market with fierce competition against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City, and Hyundai Verna. Talking about features, the car comes with two options — a 1-liter TSI and a 1.5-liter TSI petrol engine, with manual and automatic gearboxes. Sunroof, cruise control, and 6 airbags are some of the features packed in the Skoda Slavia, making it one of the cars to look out for in 2022.

Volkswagen Virtus

Making its global debut, Volkswagen Virtus is entering the Indian market this year. The car comes stacked with an impressive catalog of features. The cabin of Virtus comes with a digital instrument console, a 10-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. There's also an electric sunroof, ventilated front row seats, and wireless charging feature, among many others. Virtus' technical and aesthetical features make it a strong contender for the DaxStreet list of top 10 upcoming cars in India.

Mahindra eXUV300

Mahindra eXUV300 is one of the hottest four-wheeler anticipations in the Indian car market for 2022. With an expected price range of Rs 8 - 9 Lacs, it's an all-electric version of the popular Mahindra SUV, the XUV300. The car will be Mahindra's first electric SUV after the eKUV100. In terms of its looks, the car will be mostly similar to its non-electric predecessor. Powered by a 40 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the car is expected to have a range of over 300 km per charge. According to reports, the company plans to roll out two different versions of the car. One version of the eXUV300 will have a range of 250-300 km while the other one will have to be able to yield 350-400 km per single charge.

Mercedes-Benz EQS

The new ride from Mercedes might enter the Indian market this year. Making its debut recently, we don't have a specific launch date for the car.
