The entry-level hatchback segment is unquestionably the most competitive one in the Indian market. And to succeed in this segment, a car needs to fulfil several requirements of a buyer like competitive pricing, high fuel efficiency and low maintenance cost. Besides aforementioned things, good looks of a car might further increase its chances of doing well in the market. Here’s our list of the best cars in India below Rs 5 lakh.
Priced between Rs 2.38 lakh – Rs 3.34 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the redi-GO is the most affordable car in its segment. As a matter of fact, it’s just 28,000 pricier than the Tata Nano – the country’s cheapest car. With crossover-ish stance, best-in-class ground clearance of 185mm, a class-leading fuel efficiency of 25.17kmpl and best-in-class space for rear passengers, the redi-GO surely is quite an attractive package.
