Cars worth waiting for in 2013

Ford Ecosport

After the success of the Renault Duster this year, the Ecosport could be the next big thing in the compact SUV space. The Ecosport will get a three-cylinder, 1-litre Ecoboost petrol engine that has won numerous awards internationally. This engine develops a meaty 120bhp, which is actually better than some 1.6-litre petrol units from rivals. Ford is using this engine in order to get good fuel economy from the car without compromising on the power front. There will also be a diesel on offer. A 1.5-litre unit from the Fiesta, which will develop 90bhp. Prices are expected to start at a very competitive Rs 9 lakh for the base versions and the SUV is expected to arrive by March.

Estimated price - Rs 9-13 lakh
Expected launch – March 2013
