Cars Discontinued In 2023: The year 2023 is about to end and with it the journey of some of the best cars sold in the country has also come to an end. Many vehicles were discontinued due to strict emission norms, while companies decided to discontinue many models due to low sales. These include cars from Maruti to Volvo. So let's know about those 5 cars whose journey ended in 2023.


1. Maruti Alto 800: This car, which was the pride of middle-class homes of the country for more than 25 years, will be discontinued in 2023. After the closure of Alto 800, its place was taken by Alto K10. It was the cheapest car in the country to come with an 800cc petrol engine. Alto 800 was discontinued due to not being upgraded as per BS-6 Phase-2 norms. Also, the company aimed to bring the K10 model in a new design with a more powerful engine.


2. Mahindra Alturas G4: Mahindra's 7-seater premium SUV Alturas G4 was also discontinued earlier this year. It was the most expensive car in Mahindra's lineup, competing with cars like Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour. It was discontinued due to not being updated as per the strict emission norms. The company was selling Alturas G4 at an ex-showroom price of Rs 30.68 lakh.


3. Kia Carnival: Korean manufacturer Kia launched the Carnival MPV with much fanfare in 2020. This was the company's only premium in India. However, in terms of sales, it lagged far behind other models of the company. This year the company had delisted it from its website. The company did not update it as per BS-6 Phase-2 rules. Let us tell you that the company is preparing to bring Carnival in a new avatar next year.


4. Skoda Octavia: Czech manufacturer Skoda has discontinued its premium sedan Octavia in India in 2023. It was launched by the company in 2001 and was being sold in the country through the completely knocked down (CKD) route. Despite this, this sedan reached more than 1 lakh homes in two decades. The company discontinued it due to not being updated to the latest BS-6 norms. There is also information that the company may launch it in India in a new avatar very soon.


5. Volvo XC40: Luxury car manufacturer Volvo also discontinued its XC40 SUV in the Indian market this year. The reason for discontinuing this car is said to be its low sales. Volvo XC40 came in a mild hybrid petrol engine and was being sold at an ex-showroom price of Rs 46.40 lakh. This year the company has replaced it with the XC40 Recharge which is a fully electric SUV.
