In the Last one year the Indian Auto Market has seen a great surge
in the number of cars and with that the quality and overall looks of the car
has been enhanced to a great extent.
With a rapid change in the Indian auto market, cars are getting
increasingly modern and well equipped. Unlike before, today if you are out in
the market to buy a car and on budget, it does not mean that compromises have
to be made in terms of styling, features or safety.
Even manufacturer have started to understand today’s customer’s
requirements and hence most of them come with a value for money quotient.
Here is a list of top 5 best cars under Rs 8 Lakhs
Maruti Suzuki Swift
Maruti Swift went on sale in India only in February this year and as of June
2018, the carmaker had already sold over 1 lakh units of the car. Needless to
say, priced in the range of Rs. 4.99 lakh to Rs. 8.29 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) it’s right now one of the
hottest cars you can buy under Rs. 8 lakh. Featuring a refreshing exterior design, all-new
interior and a bunch of new and improved features the new Swift is truly a
value-for-money car. While the engine options remain unchanged and it continues
to get the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel engine, Maruti has worked on
the fuel efficiency of the car, so you now get a mileage of 22 kmpl in the
petrol model and 28.4 kmpl in the diesel.
rival to the Ignis, the Grand I10 facelift was launched recently and gets
a few revisions along with some cosmetic updates as well. The Grand i10 was
always well-appointed when it came to features considering that the top trims
got you a reverse parking camera, 1GB storage for music and so on. The facelift
model does even better and offers you a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system,
Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, LED DRLs and a new 1.2-litre diesel engine which
is slightly more powerful than the 1.1-litre unit that the old model had. The
Grand i10 has a spacious cabin and is super practical for daily driving. It has
a claimed efficiency of 19.77 kmpl and 24.95 kmpl for the petrol and diesel
models respectively. Plus, prices for the Grand i10 facelift start at Rs. 4.74
lakh and go up to Rs. 7.50 lakh. Definitely worth a consideration if Rs. 8 lakh
is your budget.
It is the car
which is making all the waves right now. The looks of the car are quirky and it
is loaded with features, keeping it real savvy for the style conscious. The
Ignis gets the tried and tested 1.2-litre petrol engine and also have an AMT
option along with the regular 5-speed manual gearbox. The interior is well
appointed and will surely cater to buyers with sophisticated sensibilities as
well. The Ignis is doing rather well for Maruti Suzuki and there is quite a bit
of waiting from what we hear. The Ignis boasts of a fuel efficiency of 20.89
kmpl for the petrol/AMT model.
The prices for
the Ignis start at Rs. 4.46 lakh for the base petrol variant, which goes up to
Rs. 7.04 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The diesel model is no longer on sale.
The Tata Tiago
was a true game changer for the home-grown automaker. The first car to be based
on the new Impact Design philosophy, the Tiago essentially the first hatch in a
long time to break out of the boring Indica design. Price Range of this car is
Rs.3.35 Lakhs to Rs. 6 Lakhs(Ex Showroom Delhi). It offers Alloy Wheels,
Premium Fabric Interior and Multi Functional Steering Wheel. Comes with a 1.2
Ltr Petrol version and 1.05 Ltr Diesel Version
It is included with a new black cascading grille, revised
headlamps, New LED daytime running lamps, a bumper housing the new arrow head
fog lamps and an integrated spoiler. Price Ranges start from Rs 5.34 Lakhs to Rs 9.15
Lakhs for the top end variant.
It gets the 82 bhp churning 1.2-litre Kappa Dual VTVT petrol engine
mated to a 5-speed manual unit, and an 89 bhp 1.4-litre U2 CRDI diesel engine
paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox.
