Top 10 Cars With Best Boot Space Under Rs. 8.0 Lakh
Here are the cars with the best boot space for under Rs. 8.0 lakh (ex-showroom). To keep all cars on a level playing field, we’re considering the available boot space with seating for 5. So, let’s start with number 1.
1. Renault Triber - 625L
Despite a compact, sub-4m length, the Triber packs the biggest storage in 5-seater mode. The 84-litre cargo capacity is not worth talking about, but once you remove the 3rd row seats, it expands to 625 litres. That’s more than the Ertiga’s 550-litre boot space.
With a budget of Rs. 8.0 lakh, you can pick any of the Triber’s variants with the petrol-manual powertrain and the RXT petrol-automatic.
2. Honda Amaze - 420L
The Honda Amaze is one of the more affordable sedans with a large boot measuring 420 litres. Only the E and S variants of the Amaze petrol-manual cost less than Rs. 8.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
3. Tata Tigor - 419L
The Tigor is another option worth considering. Its 419-litre boot space is also practically larger than that of the Amaze. While the Amaze has a 420-litre boot space, the Tigor’s hydraulic struts for the boot lid make sure that there’s no C-hinge to intrude into the cargo area. All of its variants cost under Rs. 8.0 lakh (ex-showroom) except for the top-spec petrol-automatic and CNG-manual variants.
4. Renault Kiger - 405L
The Rs. 8.0 lakh limit opens up the SUV body style options. In a car like the Kiger, you can even get the RXT 1.0L normal petrol-automatic for a little more than Rs. 8.0 lakh price cap. With the 1.0L normal petrol-manual powertrain, you have the option of RXE, RXL, RXT and RXT (O) variants. Surprisingly, the Kiger’s boot space is considerably larger than that of the Magnite, which not only shares the frame with the Kiger but also looks bigger.
5. Hyundai Aura - 402L
The Hyundai Aura has a 402-litre boot space. With a budget of Rs. 8.0 lakh or so, you can choose between E, S and SX variants with the 1.2L normal petrol-manual powertrain. Among other powertrains, you have the option of Aura S diesel-manual, which costs only a bit more than Rs. 8.0 lakh, S 1.2L normal petrol-automatic and the S variant with the CNG-manual powertrain. The turbo petrol-manual and diesel-automatic powertrains remain out of our budget limit.
6. Kia Sonet - 392L
The Kia Sonet is another example of an SUV, where despite platform sharing, one offers a larger trunk volume than the other. The Sonet’s 392-litre boot space is 49-litres larger than that of the Venue. Because of Sonet’s premium positioning, only the base variant with the 1.2L normal petrol-manual powertrain meets our budget constraint.
7. Hyundai Exter - 391L
The Hyundai Exter SUV offers a 391-litre boot space, just 1-litre shy of the more expensive Kia Sonet but 25 litres more than its direct rival, the Tata Punch. The Hyundai Exter is priced from Rs. 6.0 lakh to Rs. 10.15 lakh (ex-showroom). You could get a well-equipped Exter for under Rs. 8.0 lakh.

8. Maruti Suzuki Dzire - 378L
The Dzire is the 4th sedan on this list with a 378-litre boot space. It’s the top-selling sedan in India and the only one that consistently clocks 5-figure sales figures every month. In terms of pricing, 3 of its petrol-manual variants and 1 petrol-automatic variant cost less than Rs. 8.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
9. Tata Punch - 366L
The Punch is another SUV on this list but with smaller dimensions than those of a typical B2-segment SUVs. It has a 366-litre boot space and it’s shockingly large for a B1-segment car. The lower 3 petrol-manual variants and 1 petrol-automatic variant cost less than Rs. 8.0 lakh.
10. Tata Nexon - 350L
If you’d rather prefer a larger SUV, then you can consider the Nexon. However, be prepared to sacrifice a bit on boot space and features as you can only buy the base XE variant of the Nexon with a budget of Rs. 8.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
