Cars to hit the roads in 2009

January 22, 2009

Forecasts for the automobile sector in 2009 may be bleak -- experts predict almost 12 per cent decline in sales for the year ahead but quite a number of new vehicles are set to hit showrooms this year.

And more than half of these new cars happen to be next-generation models.

This slide show will take you through some of these about-to-be-launched cars. Read on. . .

1. Fiat Grande Punto

Expected in May-June 2009, the car's estimated price varies between Rs 500,000 and Rs 700,000.

It is a pemium hatchback/small-car that runs on both petrol and diesel.

The car will also be available with an Essesse kit, which boosts power to 135kW.
