The budget car segment, unquestionably, is the most competitive one in the Indian market as it’s mainly dominated by countries top two carmakers – Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai. Since the small cars have low running costs, and are more practical and economical than the sedans and SUVs, they make a massive percentage of the Indian car sales. That is the reason why the mainstream car manufacturers are more focused towards the small car segment.
Now with the launch of the Renault Kwid and Tata Tiago, the competition has got even more fierce as they offer great value-for-money proposition. We’ll see more new small cars entering the highly competitive budget segment in coming months.
These seven upcoming new small cars will fall in the price range of Rs. 3 lakh to Rs. 5 lakh.
