1. Tata Tiago

Tata Tiago side

The kind of popularity Tata Tiago has been enjoying in the Indian market is known to everyone. The hatchback received 50,000 bookings within few month of its arrival. Attributes that favour this car are its sporty design, feature-rich interior, excellent drivability, efficient engines, and most importantly the aggressive pricing. However, the fight isn’t easy for this one given the fact there are already too many players in this segment including the Maruti Swift, Ford Figo and Hyundai i10.

Price (Ex-showroom, Delhi)Rs 3.94 lakh – Rs 5.67 lakh
Engine 1.05L Revotorq

2. Maruti Swift/ Swift Dzire

Maruti Swift

One of the segment leaders, the Swift has been dominating the roost for almost a decade now. The car is a complete package that caters all needs be it performance, looks, style, power or mileage. Based on an extended chassis, the comfort, space and build quality offered by this hatchback are equivalent to a premium hatch. Being a homegrown car maker product, it is a perfect fit for potholes filled Indian roads – a rare quality you may notice absent in several other hatchbacks.

The Swift Dzire compact sedan, too, is value for money car. It’s quite practical, and drives smoothly on urban roads. The extended boot provides enough space for family luggage. The Swift twins share the engine lineup – 1.3-litre DDiS diesel and 1.2-litre K-Series VVT petrol – producing 74bhp with 190Nm and 83.11bhp with 115Nm respectively.

      Go for the Swift or the Etios Liva. Both these products are low on maintenance, great on fuel efficiency and decent on comfort.

    most maruti cars including swift…etc are not safe vehicles. compare built quality with fiat punto. Jitna deti gain ( mileage) utna leti hain (life). my buying choices are punto-polo-sail-jazz.
    take test drive of punto or polo. you will forget chalo vehiclesss.
