Gone are the days when cars were an unaffordable commodity. In any price range, new car buyers are often intimidated by the choices in the market. For the Indian buyer, the price remains the sole criteria in the car-buying decision process.
Someone looking for a brand-new car in the Rs. 5 to 10 lakh price range will be spoilt with choices. We are listing a few of the best cars in the Rs. 5-10 lakh range below.
The Hyundai badge has always stood for unbeatable service and reliable cars. On top of that, the new fluidic design has also worked well for Hyundai, ensuring more customers going for Hyundai cars. The Hyundai Verna Fluidic is one such car in the Rs. 5 to 10 lakh range, loaded with the latest technology (Bluetooth enabled audio system, iPod compatibility, steering mounted controls), safety features (ABS with EBD, seatbelt pre-tensioners, speed and impact-sensing door locks, and six airbags) and other features like the climate control attached with ionizer and an electro-chromic rear-view mirror.
Mahindra has been a synonym for strength, steadfastness and quality in the Indian automobile industry. Other than their immense strength and unmatched reliability, a unique quality that has been found in almost every Mahindra car is that of easy affordability. There is no doubt that Mahindra Xylo is one of the most sought-after MUVs in the market today in the Rs 5 to 10 lakh range. The vehicle comes with the kind of features like the aircraft-like seat mounted trays, the multi-information display, cruise control, voice commands that can not only control the audio system, but can also toggle the headlamps, turn blinkers and wipers and lock or unlock the doors and the fuel-lid.
Another car in the Rs. 5 to 10 lakh range that has caught the Indian consumer’s attention is the Hyundai i20 facelift. Other than the Fluidic design, the wide 8-spoke alloy wheels offer a good level of grip on the road. On top of the standard features, i20’s cabin gets an electric sunroof, reverse parking sensors with display embedded in the mirror, automatic headlamps and wipers. The i20 is also the only car in its segment to offer 6 airbags, making it one of the safest cars on the road.
Ford has always offered something more than the competition – be it space or comfort. Making SUVs affordable to the Indian market, the compact genre saw its first serious contender in Ford EcoSport – Ford’s newest entrant. It has features like Emergency Assist system, SYNC infotainment system, keyless entry and six airbags. Given the highly competitive pricing of Rs 5 to 10 lakh, Ford has got a winner here.
