    It’s that time of the year again when the Indians go into a shopping spree. The Indian car buyers plan their purchase during the auspicious period of Dhanteras and Diwali, as buying any sort of assets is believed to bring prosperity. Considering the fact that the hatchbacks are the ever popular cars in India, here are the top 5 hatchback models that you should consider buying this festive month.

    1. Maruti Suzuki Alto K10

    The Maruti Suzuki Alto is the ruler of the Indian auto industry sales chart. The Alto 800 and the Alto K10 make up the Alto brand, which is the constant bestseller in India. We like the K10 better for its peppy 1L fuel efficient petrol engine. The small hatchback claims to offer a fuel economy of 24.07kmpl. Its compact dimensions, cool looks, dependable performance, incredible low running costs and great resale value make it the top choice of the first time car buyers of India.

    When it comes to the overall quality and features, the Alto brand models are very bare basic, but the Maruti Suzuki brand power and its many positive qualities make it a highly recommended buy. Prices start from Rs. 3.5 lakhs.

    2. Renault Kwid

    French car maker Renault took on India’s top car Maruti Alto with its Kwid. This bold decision turned to be Renault’s game changer, as the Kwid with its SUV-ish looks and great features won over the hearts of the Indians.

    The Kwid offers great looks and a spacious cabin loaded with many class first features. It comes in two versions, one equipped with a 0.8L petrol engine and another with a more powerful 1L petrol engine. The top 1L variants also get AMT gearbox option as well. It has a starting tag of Rs. 3.9 lakhs.

    3. Tata Tiago
    Tata Motors tasted great success after a long time with its Tiago last year. The Tata Tiago compact hatch is a welcoming change from the dull low-cost Tata models. It boasts of smart and fresh styling, strong built quality and great features, while also retaining Tata’s patent qualities of practicality and space.

    The new-age hatch offers features like a premium Harman audio system with 8 speakers, power operated mirrors, chilled glovebox and multiple drive modes. It gets powered by a frugal and refined 1.2L petrol engine offering a mileage of 23.84 kmpl. Prices start from Rs. 5.3 lakhs.

    4. Maruti Suzuki Baleno

    India’s leading car maker, Maruti Suzuki strengthened its foothold in the premium car segment of India with its Baleno premium hatchback. The Baleno impresses with its lucid ‘liquid flow’ design, spacious well appointed cabin, premium features and overall good quality.
    The premium hatchback segment leader offers features like SmartPlay infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, navigation system, voice command, smart key, push start/stop, tilt adjustable and telescopic steering wheel and much more. The Baleno offers a fuel economy of 21.4 kmpl from its 1.2L petrol mill. It is tagged from a competitive Rs. 5.9 lakhs upwards.

    5. Volkswagen Polo

    The Polo GT TSI made it to this list owing to its great quality, premium features and safety equipments. The Polo does not offer high mileage or low running costs like the other above mentioned cars in this list. However, it offers top-notch quality that is hard to match by any of its competitors in India.
    The sheer premium built and quality of the Volkswagen Polo with its brilliant German craftsmanship will certainly make the car’s owners feel proud. The refined turbocharged petrol engine mated to a sophisticated DSG transmission make the car a treat for the drivers. The Polo feels like a more luxurious car than it actually is. Prices start from Rs. 9.2 lakhs.
