Upcoming car launches in February 2015 – Hyundai Verna facelift, Volkswagen Jetta facelift, BMW i8 hybrid sportscar

hyundai india verna feb launchFebruary 16, 2015 – Hyundai Verna facelift is going to make its official debut in the country on the day, when early bookers will be able to get their first peeks into their rides, in showrooms. We have seen quite a lot of new Verna over the past few weeks via spy shots of un-camouflaged test mules, not to mention the official photos of Hyundai Solaris in Russia. Apart from well known exterior embellishments, expect a 7-inch touchscreen system with navigation to feature in Verna facelift, and automatic transmission setup from Elantra. And lastly, Honda City and Maruti Ciaz beware.

2015-volkswagen-jetta-faceliftFebruary 17, 2015 – Volkswagen Jetta facelift will be launched with updated, rather more uptight styling, via new grille, headlamps, tail lamps; basically the usual package. Interior too is refurbished with new flat-bottom steering wheel, updated instrument cluster and the like. Mechanicals would be left untouched, except for the diesel engine which is getting a 10 bhp power hike.

2014-bmw-i8-frontFebruary 18, 2015 – BMW i8 will be unveiled by the Master Blaster & Brand Ambassador Sachin Tendulkar in India on this very special day. The revolutionary-looking hybrid sportscar will have a petrol heart and an electric motor driving the wheels at spine-chilling speeds. It can also be driven on pure electricity. BMW will be importing this car in CBU route in very limited numbers, so it will not be easy to spot one on the roads very often, from next month.
