5 Cars For The Gen X With A Price Tag Of Rs. 4 Lakh Or Less

The demand for cars in the Indian market has been ever-increasing. Every segment has seen growth but the Compact Vehicles segment, in particular, has been the most successful one. Indian consumers, especially the Generation X, tend to choose a vehicle that looks good, serves well, fits in the garage easily, is big enough for weekend family outings, and does not burn a hole in their pockets. And thus, Compact Cars are the most successful of the lot. Listed below are five such budget cars which serves the youth’s driving needs.

  1. Renault KWID: The Renault Kwid is one of the most recent players in the segment market and also one of the newest sensations. With its muscular body and sporty SUV-like stance, this entry-level crossover, has turned quite a few heads since its inception in May 2015. Since then, the French carmaker has launched many other versions of the car with great deal of cosmetic changes, especially to attract the young generation. The car is available in petrol variant only but comes in two different engine capacities: 799 cc and 999 cc. The three cylinder, 799 cc engine produces 54 PS of power at 5,678 rpm and 72 Newton metres of torque at 4,386 rpm. The 999 cc engine, on the other hand, produces 68 PS of power at 5,500 rpm and a torque of 91 Newton metres at 4,250 rpm. There are many sub-variants of the Kwid based on the features and options available. The top models comes with a first-in-class AMT dial. The Kwid is primarily available in six different color options: Fiery red, ice cool white, moonlight silver, outback bronze, planet grey, and electric blue. Other than these single tone colours, the car also has a number of other editions like the anniversary editions and the Climber edition which come in different color schemes. The latest addition to the Kwid creed is the Kwid MARVEL Avengers Super Hero Edition. This edition offers two new body decals for the car, inspired by the two famous MARVEL superheroes: Iron Man and Captain America. The base model of the Renault Kwid is priced at Rs.2,66,700 (ex-showroom Delhi).
  2. Maruti Alto 800: The Alto 800 is one of the most successful cars in India. After its predecessor, the Maruti Suzuki Alto, the Alto 800 was accepted and loved by the Indian market equally. The car got a facelift and new added features to meet the demands and expectations of the market. The Alto 800 gets fresh and spacious interiors, aero design, and a responsive engine along with a sturdy and practical frame that makes it perfect for almost any journey. It is powered by a F8D 796 cc, three cylinder engine clubbed with a 5 speed manual gearbox which produces 35.3 Kw of power @ 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 69 Nm @ 3,500 rpm. The car comes in 8 sub-variants along with optional CNG variants. Maruti Suzuki has also concentrated on the safety and thus the Alto 800 comes with driver-side airbag, rear door child lock, keyless entry, ORVMs, and fog lamps. The car also offers fuel efficiency of 24.70 kmpl in the petrol variant and 33.44 km/kg in the CNG variant.

With a price range of Rs.2.51 lakh to Rs.3.78 lakh, the Alto 800 was the second highest selling car in India for the month of February 2018.
  3. Maruti Suzuki Alto K10: The Alto K10 is an elder sibling to the Alto 800. It comes with a bigger engine and sharper features. The K10 is powered by a 998 cc, K10B engine which delivers 68 PS of power @ 6,000 rpm and produces a maximum torque of 90 Nm @ 3,500 rpm. The lightweight, but powerful K-Next engine helps the car to clock 0-60 kmph in 5.3 seconds. With a bold design on the exterior and dual-tone spacious interior, the Alto K10 can be an absolute eye-candy. The car comes in eight sub-variants along with CNG as optional. Both the manual and AGS versions provide fuel efficiency of 24.07 kmpl while the CNG variant provides 32.26 km/kg. It also offers 6 colours to choose from: Silky white, Tango orange, Granite grey, Fire brick red, Cerulean blue, and Superior white. The instrument cluster, glove-box, front power windows, driver-side airbag, fog lamps, keyless entry, the revolutionary Auto Gear Shift (AGS), and a price range starting at Rs.3.30 lakh, makes the car a worthy deal.
  4. Tata Tiago: The newest sensation from the house of Tata Motors, the Tata Tiago, has been widely accepted in the Indian market. It is finding its way up the ladder at a significant pace. The Tiago sports the new age design developed by Tata and thus offers a very agile and confident stance.

The Tiago also offers three different driving modes: The Creep Function, The Sport Mode, and the Shift Assist Manual Mode, to help meet your driving mood and needs. The car also provides some of the best safety features like immobiliser, speed dependent automatic door locks, day and night IRVM, airbags, etc. The Tata Tiago is priced at Rs.3.26 lakh (petrol) and Rs.4.04 lakh (diesel) [both prices ex-showroom Delhi].
  5. Datsun Redi GO: The Datsun Redi GO is yet another strong and good-looking competitor in this segment. It comes only in petrol variant but has two different engine capacities: 799 cc and 999 cc. It is further divided into four sub-variants: The Smart Drive Auto, The Gold 1.0L, The GO 1.0L, and The GO 0.8L. The Redi GO 0.8L is powered by a 799 cc engine which produces 54 PS @ 5,678 rpm and 72 Nm of torque @ 4,386 rpm, while the Redi GO 1.0L is powered by a 999 cc engine which pumps out 68 PS pf power @ 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm of torque @ 4,250 rpm. The fuel economy is 22.7 kmpl and 22.5 kmpl respectively for the 0.8L and 1.0L engines. The Datsun Redi GO is offered in five primary colours: Ruby, Lime, Silver, Grey, and White.

The Redi GO sports a bold and sleek YUKAN design philosophy which makes the car very appealing. It offers best-in-class ground clearance, headroom, and cabin room. It also comes in a Automatic Manual Transmission (AMT) variant with dual riding mode to make the drives even smoother.

    TATA AIG car insurance is pretty awesome policy. So I have taken my car insurance from this company because they are providing me a bumper to bumper offer, comprehensive policy even if the car is 7 years old and this is the only company who provides this facility. To apply the claim is very easy in a single call. They have provided me 100% claim.
