Addressing the need, auto makers are constantly innovating to create cars within a lower price range while adding enough features to provide maximum benefit. Currently, the Indian market is flooded with low-priced options; here is our list of the best of the lot.
Hyundai Grand i10 Nios – Placed between the Grand i10 and Elite i20, the ‘Nios’ is powered by both BS6 compliant 1.2-litre petrol and diesel engines but the petrol variant is more cost and easy to maintain. Rivalling with Maruti Swift, Ford Figo and Nissan Micra, Nios is equipped with standout features at this price range.
Maruti WagonR – The 2019 WagonR has a magnificent design with spacious cabin including amazing storage capacity, limitless comfort and excellent fuel efficiency factor. It’s a perfect car for daily errands as the K-series petrol engine has a low maintenance cost, longer life span and offers an exhilarating ride.
Tata Tiago Revotorq XB – This is the most fuel – efficient and small but sturdy car in this price range. Blending an upmarket cabin feel with luxury car drive experience, this is the most sought after hatchback by middle-class Indians. Tiago was born to enhance Tata’s position in the mid-size segment and it has actually defied the dominance of high-priced options in the segment. The fresh charismatic appeal, the modish features and the aggressive price range works for Tiago.
Maruti Alto – Maruti has nobly launched a CNG version of Alto 800 in a price of Rs 4.11 lakh. With ample safety features, sufficient space and decent ambience, it confidently rivals Renault Kwid 0.8-litre and Datsun Redi-Go 0.8-litre. Besides leading the industry in BSVI engine movement for going green, its refurbished look and concern for safety makes it a more irresistible package. The compact design and power of Alto makes city drive smooth and enjoyable, providing an average of 25kmpkg inside the city and 29kmpkg noiseless drive on the highway.
