The invitation carried the slogan “The Formidable Coming Soon”, but without further details. Speculation suggests it could be a new iteration based on the same platform as the CB350 and CB350RS. We expect it to be a cruiser to take on the Royal Enfield Meteor 350, or an adventure tourer.
Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder
Toyota is set to mark its entry into India’s ever-growing mid-size SUV segment with the pricing reveal of the Urban Cruiser Hyryder which made its debut in the country on July 1.

The manual version can also be had with an all-wheel-drive (AWD) configuration. Then there’s the 1.5-litre 3-pot petrol engine with powerful hybrid technology that uses an AC synchronous motor. Total system output is rated at 116 PS and power is sent to the front wheels via a single-speed e-CVT gearbox.
Maruti-Suzuki Alto
Maruti Suzuki recently sent out an invitation to block your date for August 18 on behalf of the Maruti Suzuki Arena. Since the Grand Vitara will be retailed through premium Nexa dealerships, the new Arena car will likely be the next-generation 2022 Alto considering that Maruti Suzuki has no other car lined up for a immediate exit and new Alto has already been seen in spy shots.

According to the spy photos, the new generation Alto will grow taller, especially in the height department. The 2022 version of the car also gets a redesigned rear with new taillights that resemble those of the Celerio. The Alto will most likely be powered by the same 796cc petrol engine with some optimization and calibration improvements. The Alto K10 moniker could also be reintroduced with the new 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that performs duties on the recently launched 2022 S-Presso.
