The coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown was the reason for several carmakers to postpone their new car launches in the country. However, now, with lesser restrictions in place, almost all carmakers have resumed production and retail operations. In fact, given the situation, a lot of carmakers are opting for digital launches, and we have already seen a bunch of them in June. Having said that, there is still a lot to come, and July is expected to be a very busy month. So, here's the list of new cars that will be launched in India in July 2020.

Honda City

The new-gen Honda City was supposed to be launched in April 2020, however, the coronavirus pandemic and the resultant lockdown forced the company to suspend operations and postpone the launch. Now, Honda has begun its production and has also started accepting pre-bookings for the car. While we are still awaiting a launch date, the company has confirmed that the new City will go on sale in India in July 2020.

First unveiled at the 2020 Auto Expo, the new MG Hector Plus was also supposed to be on sale in India by now, but the pandemic forced Morris Garages India to postpone the launch to July 2020. A direct rival to the upcoming Tata Gravitas and the Mahindra XUV500, the MG Hector Plus will be the first three-row SUV from the company in India and it will be offered in both 6- and 7-seater option.

The MG Hector Plus also comes with a few cosmetic changes, especially, in the front section. The chrome border around the grille is gone and you only get a neat, glossy black grille, flanked by a set of new LED daytime running lamps. The headlamps have also been updated and the new ones look much nicer now, and the plastic cladded bumper has replaced by a new body-coloured one, which looks much nicer. Powertrain wise, the Hector Plus comes with the same Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre diesel and 1.5-litre mild-hybrid motors from the Hector mated to a six-speed manual gearbox while DCT could be given as an option on the 1.5-litre mild-hybrid engine.
