Best Cars in India (2015 & 2016)

India is definitely shining. The number of car brands that are launching in India is phenomenal. Rumor has it that even Tesla is planning to come to India sometime soon, despite the fact that they might built a production plant in India. India is a great market. With it’s ever so powerful middle class, and a brand obsessed population, I only see more and more coming in. Cars are never enough for Indians. People with buying power keeps buying cars and people who’ve tried one keeps trying another. There is even a bigger market for used cars. Having said that, 2015 was amazing for Indian car lovers. Lot of new cars were launched and new brands entered the market. Let’s look at how the Indian car scene is looking for 2016 and what are the best cars we have in the market now.

Top Hatchback Cars in India

Hatchbacks are India’s favorite. They fit both the budget and roads of India. Let’s check out which are the best hatchback cars in India today.

Renault KWID – < 3.5 Lac


Renault KWID is an entry level hatchback car and has gotten really popular in India recently. It’s economical with a 25.2 kmpl mileage and 799cc engine. Beyond the economical factor, just like the Renault Duster, what makes the KWID popular is its look and feel. Although under 3.5 lacs it looks like an SUV or wannabe SUV. Renault has nailed the design and no wonder why it’s popular with India.

Honda Jazz – < 8.6 Lac


Honda’s hatchback car, Honda Jazz is already popular in India within a short span of time. With an amazing mileage of 27.3 kmpl and a stunner of design, who doesn’t want to like it? It has its issues as well though – like cost, space etc but despite those shortcomings, Honda Jazz is a popular car in India under the hatchback segment.
