NEW DELHI: The coming two months and the festive season starting October will see some of the best small car offerings in India.

Indian and international brands are now all focused on small cars.

While Toyota is coming up with Toyota Etios Liva by the end of June or July, General Motors would be launching Chevrolet Beat Diesel in July while Maruti is coming up with new Maruti Swift this August.

Besides, there would be two attractions -- Maruti Cervo and Honda Brio -- in the small car segment in October.

The Toyota Etios Liva is the first small car by Toyota Kirloskar Motors (TKM) in India.

It is expected to be launched towards June end at a price tag of Rs 420,000 to Rs 550,000.

Small car Liva's petrol version will be powered by a 1.2L VVT engine.

Liva is expected to come in diesel version with a 1.4L engine at a later stage.

Once launched, the Toyota Etios Liva will give a good fight to Hyundai i10, Maruti Swift and Chevrolet Beat besides others.

General Motors is expected to power the Chevrolet Beat Diesel with a 1L three-cylinder engine that produces 57bhp power and a maximum torque of 140Nm at 1750rpm.

It would be the smallest and perhaps the most economical diesel cars in India.

The Beat Diesel is expected to deliver around 24 kmpl average in the normal run.

It will also be fitted with VGT (Variable Geometry Turbocharger) to give the car more power besides making it more fuel efficient.

After its launch Beat Diesel will be in direct competition to Toyota Etios Liva, Ford Figo, Maruti Ritz besides others.

Chevrolet Beat Diesel is expected to be price around Rs 450,000.

The all new 2011 Maruti Swift will be the same B+ segment car.

It has the same body type as its predecessor.

The looks will be intricately upgraded and the engine power will be upgraded from the existing 85bhp to 87bhp.

The looks have been revamped though the general appearance of the typical Swift has been preserved.

The new Maruti Swift could be priced around Rs 500,000 to Rs 600,000.

The new Swift would have its rivals including Fiat Punto 1.2, Chevrolet Beat, Ford Figo and Hyundai i10 besides others.

This small car from Maruti is expected to do well specially since it has received good response in Japan.

Once launched the sporty, sleek Maruti Cervo would replace Maruti 800.

The 660cc petrol driven car would deliver 60 bhp of power and 64Nm of torque.

The car is expected to be priced between Rs 150,000 and Rs 200,000 with a four-speed manual transmission.

A sleek body line, coupled with eye-shaped head lights and a Honeycomb radiator grille would surely make it a big hit just like Maruti 800.

The car is expected to offer a mileage of 20 to 24kmpl.

This car that proposed striking fuel efficiency, great ground clearance has compact and bold styling.
