Gone are the days when there were only two or three models to choose from. If you are planning on buying a car today, the large number of options available could make the selection process pretty confusing. Of course, the first thing to identify is your budget. If your budget is between 3 to 5 lakhs, you still have a range of options that offer high fuel efficiency, good looks, space and comfort. You could also choose some really cool car accessories online to add to the oomph factor.
Maruti Suzuki Alto K10
In this price range, Maruti Sizuki has had the largest market share in India for several years. Launched in 2010, the Alto K10 was updated in 2014, with a number of changes like auto gear shift, newly designed bumpers and head- and tail-lamps and 13-inch wheels.
The interiors have also been changed, with a dual-tone dashboard and control buttons. It is powered by a 998cc K10 engine with output of 67bhp. This vehicle is highly fuel efficient, with claims of giving mileage of 24kms per litre. You could also choose an Alto K10 with CNG.
This automobile was introduced by Datsun India in the MVP, or multi-purpose vehicle, segment. The front and sides of the car look very similar to the Datsun GO hatchback. There is a third row of seating, but the leg space is too little for any adult to fit in. This car is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine with output of 67bhp and peak torque of 104Nm. Datsun GO+ is claimed to offer mileage of around 20kms per litre. If you are looking for car accessories online, be sure to get a leather steering wheel cover.
Launched in 2007, this model was updated in 2010 and is still going strong. It is powered by a 1.1-litre, 4-cylinder engine with output of 68bhp. It has 5-speed manual transmission and is claimed to offer mileage of around 19kms per litre.
For added convenience, safety and comfort, you could choose from a variety of car accessories online, such as fog lamp kit, mud flaps, mirror cover, side window chrome beading and many such options.
