So in this Diwali special, we are going to look at the 10 cars that made the most noise with their launches this year.
Maruti Suzuki Jimny :

One of India’s most popular compact sedans, the Hyundai Verna, got a generation update this year. However, it started off with controversy due to its bold styling. But that didn’t stop this bomb from shattering the segment when it comes to sales, usurping every rival and taking the top spot. Check out what we think about the new 2023 Hyundai Verna in our first drive review.
Maruti Suzuki Fronx :
With the Fronx, Maruti Suzuki has brought its pocket rocket 1-litre Boosterjet engine back, which is versatile and mighty fun to drive.
