Here is a list of the top 3 upcoming budget sedans in 2023 that you must be aware off-
1. Next-gen Hyundai Verna
The next generation of the Hyundai Verna will adhere to its sporty design language and may include split headlamps. The Verna will retain the existing petrol engine, with the diesel engine being phased out due to upcoming RDE regulations.
The 1.5-litre VTVT petrol engine is expected to be retained in the new Verna. It is also rumoured that the new Verna will be equipped with mild-hybrid technology, which will improve fuel efficiency slightly. A 6-speed manual transmission or an automatic transmission will be available as transmission options.
The 2023 Verna is also expected to receive Hyundai’s ADAS technology, making it the first car in the midsize segment to do so. It will also be significantly larger than before, which will aid in rear-seat space.
2. 2023 Honda City Facelift
The new City will have minor cosmetic changes such as revised front and rear bumpers, headlights, redesigned alloy wheels, and new colour options. It will also receive additional features such as ventilated seats, ADAS functionality, an updated infotainment system, and many more.
The new Honda City will be available in both petrol-only and petrol-hybrid configurations. Due to upcoming RDE regulations, the diesel powertrain will be phased out. The Honda City will be powered by a 1.5-litre NA petrol engine producing 119 bhp and 145 Nm of torque.
The sedan’s hybrid variants will be powered by a 1.5-litre Atkinson cycle petrol engine paired with electric motors that produce 124 bhp and 253 Nm of torque. It continues to compete with the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, VW Virtus, Skoda Slavia, and the upcoming Hyundai Verna.
3. Toyota Belta
Following the 2023 Verna and City Facelift, another vehicle in the launch lineup will be the Toyota Belta, which will have the same exterior design as the Ciaz, including the shape of the headlamps, wheels, and even colour combinations. The only visible difference will be Toyota badging, and the front and rear bumper designs will be tweaked. The grille has been modified to differentiate both models. The interior will be identical to the Ciaz, but with Toyota badges throughout and minor changes to the upholstery. The cabin will be offered in a two-tone colour scheme.
The Toyota Belta will be powered primarily by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine developed by Maruti that produces 103 horsepower and 138 Newton-meters of torque. Transmission options could include a five-speed manual transmission and a four-speed torque converter automatic transmission.
