New launches before 2022 ends
As the year 2022 comes to an end, there were plenty of great launches we witnessed in the last 11 months. We still have a month remaining and a number of launches to go through. Let's take a look at what we have left in store for 2022.
The brand's premier performance SUV, the BMW XM, was revealed in September of this year and will go on sale in India on December 10. The XM receives a radical interior and exterior design, as well as a PHEV engine, making it the first original M automobile in forty years.
A 25.7kWh battery pack and a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine will power the BMW XM. An eight-speed automatic transmission will distribute the SUV's 653PS and 800 Nm of torque to all four wheels, allowing it to accelerate from a standstill to 100 kmph in only 4.3 seconds.
A fully new front fascia for the extensively revised X7 luxury SUV now sports the brand's unique split headlight design, which was previously seen on the 7 Series and i7 sedans. The newest curved infotainment screen from BMW, which was previously only available on the iX and i4, features a 14.9-inch touchscreen running the most recent version of iDrive 8 and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The interior also receives a significant upgrade.
The X7 will be available in India in two different configurations: xDrive 40i and xDrive 30d. The former has an inline six-cylinder petrol engine with 380PS, while the latter has an inline six-cylinder diesel engine with 352PS. Both engines will have 48V mild hybrid technology, an 8-speed automatic transmission, and an all-wheel drive.
Recently, MG Hector was seen in the brilliant red colour choice totally unveiled, and it appears that the front has undergone the most significant alterations. The SUV sports a large diamond grille up front, which is surrounded by dual-barrel headlights and LED DRLs that are mounted in the same spot as the present model.
In addition, we can see the ADAS sensor, front parking sensors, and front camera, all of which we anticipated to be present on the new Hector. The current alloy wheels are likewise the same, giving the SUV the same side appearance.
The 2022 Hector is not anticipated to receive any significant powertrain changes in India. Similar to the existing SUV, it should have the same 143PS 1.5-litre turbo petrol ICE, 143PS 1.5-liter petrol mild-hybrid, and 170PS 2-liter diesel powertrains. A CVT automatic transmission is an option for the ICE-only petrol powertrain, but a 6-speed manual gearbox is standard for the mild hybrid diesel and gasoline engines.

The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder CNG can be had in the mid S and G variants. The Hyryder S CNG gets features like a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto/Apple Carplay, connected-car features, cruise control, steering-mounted controls, Alexa and Google assistance and a rear parking camera. The Hyryder G CNG further adds equipment like LED headlamps, 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Android Auto/Apple Carplay, Arkamys audio, ambient lighting, auto folding outer mirrors, 17-inch alloys and rear washer/wiper.
The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder E-CNG get the same powertrain as seen in the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and XL6 CNG as well in the upcoming Brezza CNG. This Hyryder CNG will be sold alongside the mild-hybrid and strong hybrid variants and will feature a 1.5-litre petrol motor that puts out 87PS and 121 Nm in CNG mode and 102PS and 136 Nm in petrol mode. The Urban Cruiser Hyryder E-CNG is only available with a five-speed manual and has an ARAI-rated mileage of 26.1 km/kg.
