The Indian car market is in a transitional phase,wherein it is witnessing change in buying pattern causing restructuring within the fraternity. In simpler words, there has been a complete overturn in the customers’ needs. In earlier times, a mundane vehicle would suffice the commuting requirements, however now the customers take into consideration several factors before making a buying decision such as styling, looks, mileage and features. The ‘first time buyer’ segment or the ‘budget space’ constitutes a huge chunk of the market and caters to a large customer base.
With change in the needs of buyer, there has been a gradual change in the mass products in terms of styling, features and looks. While it is not as easy as it seems, but some of the carmakers have successfully developed vehicles that offer salient comfort and safety provisions.
