Diwali is a great time to purchase a new car thanks to the number of financing options at your disposal. If you’re looking to take a hatchback car home this festive season, here are five options worth considering:
Maruti Alto K10
Priced at just Rs.3.35 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the Alto brand of Maruti Suzuki always records great sales. The Alto 800 has been quite famous, but the K10 is a notch above thanks to its peppy 1-litre engine. The car is fuel-efficient and offers a mileage of 21.1 kilometres per litre. It also boasts company dimensions, has an impressive resale value, and operates at really low running costs, which is why it has been subject to high demand so far as the used car market is concerned. The exteriors and features of the vehicle may not be the best out there, but the positives of the vehicle do well to compensate for whatever it lacks. The widespread service network of Maruti Suzuki will ensure that potential problems with your car are rectified immediately as and when they arise. The car runs on petrol and has an engine capacity of 998 cc.
With regard to the entry-level hatchback segment, Renault did a great job with the Kwid to challenge the Maruti Alto. The exteriors of the vehicle are inspired by SUVs, thereby completely changing the perception of low-cost cars in the country.
