The New Kodiaq, Gloster facelift, and Meridian facelift are coming soon to the Indian market.

The luxury SUV segment in India hasn’t received a refresh for a fair amount of time, but this is now set to change soon as multiple cars will arrive with a plethora of updates and then some more. These upcoming iterations will range from facelifts to new-gen models.

Second-gen Skoda Kodiaq


Skoda unveiled the second-gen Kodiaq in October last year, and this version of the three-row SUV will soon make it to Indian shores. The SUV carries over a similar silhouette, but in essence, there is more than what meets the eye. The length has increased to 4.75 metres, up from 4.69 metres, and the MWB-EVO platform now forms the base under the skin. The interiors have been revamped too, taking inspiration from the new Superb that was recently unveiled. Also up for offer is a plug-in hybrid derivative.

MG Gloster facelift

Next up is the MG Gloster facelift, which is expected to debut by the end of this year. Essentially a rebadged version of the Maxus D90, the car will arrive with a set of updates to the exterior design alongside a few feature revisions. Under the hood, the flagship MG car will continue with the 2.0-litre turbo and twin-turbo diesel engines.

Jeep Meridian facelift


Jeep will introduce the facelifted Meridian in the Indian market later this year, and the car will arrive with a healthy dose of feature additions over the current offering. Changes to the exterior design will be limited to a revised fascia, tweaked rear bumper, and a set of fresh alloy wheels. The mechanicals will carry over unchanged.

New-gen Ford Endeavour


The next car on the list is the new Ford Endeavour. Notably, the carmaker exited the Indian market in September 2021. While there have been speculations about the brand planning a comeback in the Indian market amidst spottings of the new-gen Endeavour in the country, there have been no considerable moves to reflect the same. Further, Ford had revealed its plans to bring its EVs shortly after the exit via the CBU route, and this plan too is yet to see the light of day.
