Diwali is just around the corner and it is the best time to light up your life with a car. If you’re looking for sedan cars to take home this Diwali, here are the top five options you can consider:
Maruti Suzuki Dzire
The Maruti Suzuki Dzire is available for purchase at Rs.5.60 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and it has been one of the best-selling sedans in the country. The older versions of the car were not as appealing to most people and the company was criticised for the way it styled its cars. The new Dzire, however, has certainly impressed. The equipment used in the vehicle matches the ones in mid-sized sedans, and features such as a 7-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay in addition to LED projector headlamps make it a worthy purchase. The new lightweight platform of the sedan increases its fuel efficiency and apart from the base variant of the car, all the others are available with the automatic transmission too. This petrol-driven sedan has an engine capacity of 1,197 cc and offers a mileage of 22 kilometres per litre.
The Hyundai Xcent is priced at Rs.5.63 lakh as is just as good as the Dzire so far as the features and mechanicals are concerned. It also has low running costs, which makes it an economical purchase. The styling of the car has been criticised, but it peppy and efficient nonetheless. The 1.2 litre petrol engine of the car comes with the option of conventional or manual automatic transmission. The resale value of the car is almost as good as that of Maruti, and with competitive pricing, easy maintenance, comfortable interiors and good build quality, the Hyundai Xcent is definitely worth considering. The engine capacity of the vehicle is 1,498 cc and it offers a claimed mileage of 17.4 kilometres per litre.
In case you are considering upgrading from a sub-4 m sedan, the Honda City is a fine option. Priced at just Rs.8.77 lakh, the car has established a reputation for performing consistently over the years. The fuel-efficient refined petrol motor is not only reliable but it also provides enough power so that cruises on highways are comfortable as ever. The City was recently revamped in India and its features have been updated too. The car is also easy to maintain, which will help you save a lot of money after purchasing the vehicle. The engine capacity of the vehicle is 1,497 cc and it offers a mileage of 17 kilometres per litre.
Available for a starting price of Rs.7.92 lakh (ex-showroom), the Hyundai Verna has caught the eye of the car lovers, thanks to its overall packaging. The car is not only filled with a host of attractive features, but is also very powerful, making it ideal for drives in the city as well long-distance commutes. The striking features of the Verna include hands-free smart boot and ventilated front seats that are usually the features you find in premium cars. The car offers hassle-free ownership and the service network of Hyundai will ensure that you have no trouble in taking care of the vehicle should you purchase it. The displacement of its petrol engine is 1,591 cc and it offers a mileage of 17.3 kilometres per litre.
Priced at Rs.13.71 lakh, the Elantra is the third Hyundai car to grace our list of the top five sedans to purchase this Diwali. The car is more powerful in comparison with mid-sized sedans and it is also bigger. Although the automatic transmission cannot be purchased at this price, the SX-manual variant is a great option for the aforementioned price range. The car boasts a powerful engine, attractive exteriors and competitive pricing. What’s more? The service network of Hyundai is so wide that any problems you may face can be rectified immediately.
