Top 10 Best Sedan Cars in India in 2022
What are sedan cars?
There are four doors on a sedan, and the trunk is not part of the passenger area. It has three boxes: the engine, the area where people are sitting, and the trunk. The definition of a sedan hasn’t changed over time. Even though it has had a lot of changes and facelifts compared to other types of cars, it still has a lot of popularity as the flagship sedan car for most car companies with a lot of people who want to buy it. Because of this, there is a lot of competition out there.
1. Honda City Hybrid
Mid-2022 is when the City Hybrid is expected to sell in India. It will be the first hybrid that is strong enough for many people to buy in India. The City Hybrid is likely to come in standard and RS versions. It has a 98hp, 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle petrol engine paired with an integrated starter generator (ISG) and a second electric motor that makes 109hp.
The city can be run in pure electric mode, with just the engine, or with a mix of both. The City Hybrid will get excellent gas mileage, and it could get up to 20kpl in the real world. A big question is whether or not people will be happy to pay more than Rs 15 lakh for a car with low running costs.
Coming in February of 2022
It has engines that have a 1.5 p (Hybrid)
Cost: Ranging Rs 15 lakh and 18 lakhs.
2. Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class was shown off in February. Among other things, it now looks like the more recent E-Class and S-Class, mainly because it has shorter overhangs, a more angular front end, and new light clusters. The new C- Class also has a 25mm longer wheelbase than the model it replaces, making the back seats roomier.
There is a lot of influence from the new S-Class inside. The horizontal dual-screen layout has been replaced by a large portrait-orientated, tablet-style infotainment touchscreen, and digital dials are also there. However, this new layout also means Mercedes has ditched the physical switches for the climate control, which can now be changed on the screen instead.
The new C-Class will have 2.0-litre diesel and petrol engines running on both diesel and petrol. These engines will now come with a 48V belt-integrated starter generator as standard.
Eventually, there will be a more robust and spicier AMG version of the car in the line, and it will keep up with cars like the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Jaguar XE when it comes out.
Coming in late 2022.
Engines 2.20 P and 2.20D
Cost: Ranging Rs 45 lakh to Rs 55 lakhs
3. Mercedes-Maybach S-Class
The standard S-Class doesn’t seem attractive enough to you. The good news is that Mercedes will soon bring its top-of-the-line Maybach S-Class to India, and it will be a good thing. This uber-luxury limousine is all about comfort and space, which is made even better by its 5,469mm length, 180mm longer than even the long-wheelbase version of the standard S-Class, making it even roomier. All this extra space is used to make the back seats as big as possible.
It doesn’t stop there: Mercedes also comes with the reclining individual “Executive” rear seats with a built-in massager as standard. Rear passengers also get two tablet-style entertainment screens, powered rear doors, a detachable touchscreen in the centre console for the seat and climate controls, a new active ambient lighting system, and a system that compensates for noise from the road when the car is moving (that uses the speakers and works like noise-cancelling headphones).
It has a new grille, chrome, unique alloy wheels, more enormous rear doors, and Maybach branding that make it stand out from the S-Class.
The Maybach S-Class S 580 variant will be made in Germany. It will be powered by a 500hp, 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine made in Germany.
They’ll also have an S680 model that has an engine that makes 612hp and has a 6.0-litre V12. It will come to India as a CBU.
Launching: Early in 2022
Engines 4.0 P and 6.0 P
4. Skoda Slavia
While the new Skoda Slavia will be the successor to the old Rapid, it will also be a step up. If you buy this car, it will be the second model from Skoda to use the MQB-A0-IN platform that is made in your country. It will also be a lot bigger than the Rapid, and it is expected to have the best wheelbase in its class.
The Slavia will also be full of features, making it one of the most well-equipped sedans in its class. You can expect to get wireless charging, ‘My Skoda’ connected car technology, a new information screen, heated seats, a digital instrument cluster, six airbags, an audio system with a subwoofer, and more as part of the deal. This is what you’ll get.
A 1.0-litre TSI turbo-petrol and a 1.5-litre TSI turbo-petrol will power the Slavia, just like the new Kushaq SUV. The latter will be the best in its class. This means that while the manual and torque converter automatic gearbox options for the 1.0 TSI are the same as for the 1.5 TSI, the DCT automatic gearbox option for the 1.5 TSI is even better. It’s possible to read our review of the Slavia prototype to find out how it drives. A new sedan from Skoda will be shown off for the first time on November 18, and it is expected to go on sale by early 2022.
Launching: Coming in February of 2022:
Engines: 1.0 P, 1.5 P, and 2.0 P
Ranging: Rs 12-15 lakhs
5. Toyota Camry facelift
Late last year, Toyota gave the Camry hybrid sedan a facelift worldwide. The changes on the Camry facelift were primarily cosmetic, with a new front bumper, new alloy wheels, and new LED tail lamps.
On the inside, the Camry got a giant 9.0-inch touchscreen and new software for its infotainment system, so it’s now even better.
However, the Toyota Camry facelift is still the same on the inside. It has the same 2.5-litre petrol engine paired with an electric motor that makes 218hp. The powertrain is linked to a CVT gearbox that drives the front wheels. As soon as 2022 comes around, you can expect the new Camry to be out, which will cost a little more.
Launching: Coming in Mid-2022
Engines: Two engines have 2.5 P (Hybrid)
Price Ranging: Rs 35- 40 lakhs.
6. Volkswagen Virtus
It comes after the Skoda Slavia, replaced by a new car based on the MQB-A0-IN platform. The new vehicle will be called the Vento. In the same way that the Skoda Slavia is a bigger car than the one it is replacing, the Virtus will be a bigger car than the one it is replacing. This means the new sedan will have a lot of room inside.
While the Virtus sedan is already on the road outside India, it could get a new look. The new model could have sharper and more modern styling. As with the Taigun, we can expect features like a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a completely digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control, ventilated front seats, and auto headlights and wipers for the Virtus, as well as other things like heated front seats.
It will also have the same 115hp, 1.0-liter TSI engine as the Taigun and the same 150hp, 1.5-liter TSI engine as the Taigun. It will have a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed torque converter automatic, and a 7-speed DCT automatic. The 1.0 TSI will have a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic.
Volkswagen will show off the new Virtus for India in February 2022, and the car will go on sale by the end of April. Many vehicles like the Honda City and Hyundai Verna will compete.
Launching: Coming in April 2022:
Engine: 1.0 P, 1.5 P, and 2.0 P.
Ranging: Rs 12- 15 lakhs
7. Audi A3 2022
The popular last-generation A3 sedan has been replaced with a brand-new 2022 model that is both contemporary and exciting to drive. Audi’s tiny vehicle is getting a more decadent interior, modern technology, and razor-sharp styling to compete with German competitors like the BMW 2-series Gran Coupe and Mercedes-Benz A-class.
All-wheel drive is available, and a plethora of driver-assistance systems are standard. Audi’s entry-level vehicle is all-new for 2022, with a sharper appearance and more sophisticated inside electronics. Europe and other worldwide markets will get the A3 in hatchback Sportback form, while North America gets the sedan version.
Like previous Audis, the A3 comes in Premium, Premium Plus, and Prestige grades. The Premium Plus variant delivers the most value for money. The Premium Plus adds adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, driver memory settings, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and passive keyless entry to the list.
Talking about Engine, Transmission, and Speed, the A3 for North America is powered by a 201-hp turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder with a 48-volt hybrid system; the engine is offered with front- or all-wheel drive. A 7-speed automatic is standard. Audi has hinted at a plug-in hybrid car; likely called the e-Tron.
We were pleased to see that the previous model’s lively handling had been retained during a quick test drive. The turbocharged four-cylinder feels lively and quick, even if its 228-hp powertrain isn’t as potent. For extra power, check out the new S3, which we reviewed separately. We’ll update this post with test findings whenever we get the A3 to our track.
Engine: Turbo charged and intercooled DOHC 16-valve 2.0-liter inline-4, 201 hp, 221 lb-ft
Launching: March 2022
8. BMW M3
BMW is a famous German luxury automobile company with a significant presence in India. It just added two new M series versions. The BMW M3 Sedan is a four-door model powered by a 3.0-litre petrol engine. The company says the car can reach 100 Kmph in under 4.1 seconds. The vehicle’s stunning exterior look results from its streamlined body structure and aggressive aesthetics.
Its black roof, B pillars, and alloy wheels add to its athletic aspect. For example, the BMW head-up display shows the gear indication, engine rotation, and shift light in M-specific perspectives. It also has a sophisticated entertainment system with an iDrive touch controller and park distance control. Although this premium car seems modest from the exterior, it offers enough inside capacity for five passengers.
The inside is adorned with leather and metallic embellishments, adding to its regal posture. It now competes with the Audi S4 and Mercedes Benz CLA 45 AMG in the Indian market.
We were talking about engine and performance. This BMW M3 Sedan sports a 3.0-litre petrol engine with a high-pressure fuel injection. It has six cylinders and 24 valves with high-pressure direct fuel injection. This engine can produce a peak power of 431bhp between 5500 and 7300rpm and torque of 550Nm between 1850 and 5500rpm. This engine is paired with a sophisticated M Double Clutch transmission with DriveLogic that sends torque to the rear wheels. This powerplant also allows the vehicle to attain a peak speed of 250 Kmph.
Launching: March 2022
9. Volkswagen Vento 2022
Brazil’s barely-covered A VW Virtus was seen testing in India, maybe for the new Vento. The Brazilian Virtus incorporates aesthetic influences from recent VW vehicles, such as the Polo’s face and Jetta’s rear profile. The Virtus in Brazil has a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and LED headlights. Four airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system, and ISOFIX child seat anchorages are included. The new Vento will have a long list of features.
VW Group’s 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine with 110PS and 175Nm is expected to power the new Vento. Six gear manual or six-speed torque converter automatic transmission. Volkswagen may alternatively fit it with the 1.5-litre TSI turbo-petrol engine used in the Hyundai Creta competitor Taigun.
10. Hyundai Iconiq 5
New all-electric small crossover featuring cutting-edge technology, futuristic style, and a flexible interior. The Ioniq name is intended for a wave of new EV cars, but 2022 5 is the first to emerge. It offers fast charging (up to 350 kW) and a 303-mile driving range. The EV ute comes with rear- or all-wheel drive and 168-320 hp. With a tech-centric dashboard, adjustable front seats with footrests, and enough passenger space.
The Ioniq 5 features an electric-only engine with numerous outputs. There are two electric motors at the back, one for each battery. According to Hyundai, the rear-drive 5 produces 225 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque with a longer-range battery. The all-wheel-drive variant is more powerful, with 320 hp and 446 lb-ft of torque, and faster. It reaches 60 mph in 5.2 ticks. The Ioniq 5 we tested was smooth on various terrain, and its wide tyres and low centre of gravity made it seem sporty. We’d want more significant input from the steering and a stiffer suspension.
