Safest Cars Under Rs. 6 Lakh For Low-Budget Buyers
We have curated a list of cars for you because you are on a strict budget and you value safety more than everything else.
1. Tata Punch
The Tata Punch sits at the top of the list with a score of 16.44 out of 17 for adult safety and 40.89 out of 49 for child safety. Tallied up, the final star rating of the Punch stands at 5 stars for the adult and 4 for child safety.
It has only 1 engine option and 4 variants with a manual transmission and top 3 with an automatic. However, only the base variant helps it stay on this list.
2. Tata Tiago
The Tata Tiago is the 2nd in this list with an adult safety score of 12.52 out of 17 and a child safety score of 34.15 out of 49. The final start rating for this car stands at 4 for adults and 3 for child safety.
The Tata Tiago is available with a petrol-manual, petrol-automatic, CNG-manual and electric-automatic powertrain options. However, only the XE and XT O petrol-manual variants cost under Rs. 6.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
3. Tata Tigor
Just like the Tiago, the Tigor also has identical scores of 12.52/17 and 34.15/49 for adult and child safety, respectively. For simplicity, GNCAP gave it an adult rating of 4 stars and child safety rating of 3 stars.
It has the same powertrain options as the Tiago hatchback but only 1 variant costs less than Rs. 6.0 lakh.
4. Renault Kiger
The Renault Kiger scored 12.34 out of 17 in adult safety and 21.05 out of 49 in child safety in the GNCAP crash tests. The final rating of the Kiger is 4 stars for adult safety and 2 for child safety.
Again, only the base RXE variant of the Kiger allows it to make the cut to this list and that too barely.
5. Nissan Magnite
Up on the heels of the Kiger is its cousin, Nissan Magnite. While it shares the platform and powertrain with the Kiger, surprisingly, it has a slightly lower adult safety rating of 11.85 for adult and 24.88 for child safety. The star rating of the Magnite remains identical to that of the Kiger with 4 stars for adult and 2 for child safety.
Here too, only the base XE variant of the Magnite costs under Rs. 6.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
6. Renault Triber
The Renault Triber is the biggest car in this list capable of accommodating up to 7 passengers. It got 11.62 and 27 points for adult and child safety out of 17 and 49 points, respectively. The adult and child safety rating for the Triber stands at 4 and 2, respectively.
The Triber only has 1 variant, which costs under Rs. 6.0 lakh.
