From a stylish EV to a refined SUV, carmakers are offering more comfort and elegance this year. Here are 5 luxury cars to look forward to.
Expected launch: Late 2023; Expected price: ₹6.5-7 crore
This is Ferrari’s first SUV with four doors. Rivalling the likes of the Bentley Bentayga and the Lamborghini Urus, this four-seater retains its sports car heritage, with a 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine that belts out 725 hp of power at 7,750 rpm. A riveting soundtrack from the tail pipes is part of this SUV’s charm, along with the fact that it can dash from 0 to 100km/hour in just 3.3 seconds.
