Looking For Under Rs 10 Lakh Cars? Check Bestselling Cars Priced Under Rs 10 Lakh In 2022
Affordability will always be the top priority for people looking to buy a car.
In the midst of several automakers announcing hikes due to rising input costs among other challenges, there are many cars to come which fall under Rs 10 lakh.
Here are some of those.
1. New-gen Maruti Alto
The new Alto has been spotted on test drives in the country.
It could get a different design than the existing version and also bigger dimensions, meaning the interior could get roomier.
Rumor has it that the existing 0.8L petrol engine will be carried forward with a few updates.
CNG option will continue to be offered as well.
2. Hyundai Venue facelift
Test models of the facelifted Venue reveal an updated front fascia, inspired by the new-gen Hyundai Tucson.
It also gets restyled taillights and new bumpers (front and rear).
The interior is expected to remain the same more or less.
It will retain the three engine options – a 1.2L NA petrol unit, a 1.0L turbo-petrol unit, and a 1.5L turbo-diesel unit – along with multiple transmission choices.
3. New Maruti Brezza
In a major rebranding, the new model will drop the ‘Vitara’ suffix from its name, keeping its name only the Brezza.
Spy pictures reveal major changes to the exterior and interior design.
Additional equipment is expected as well.
It will run on the carmaker’s new K15C engine, which is a 1.5L NA petrol mill with 115 PS of peak power on tap, and a mild-hybrid system available as standard.
Transmission options will include a 5-speed MT and a new 6-speed AT, with steering-mounted paddle shifters available on the latter.
4. New-Gen Toyota Urban Cruiser
After the launch of the Brezza, Maruti’s joint venture partner Toyota will introduce the updated Urban Cruiser.
The new Cruiser gets several changes to the design (exterior and interior) along with an updated equipment list.
Same as the Vitara Brezza-Urban Cruiser pair, the updated models of the two will be mechanically similar apart for some cosmetic differences.
Toyota’s compact crossover will get a more powerful 115 PS 1.5-litre NA petrol engine under the hood.
5. Citroen C3
This was officially unveiled in the country last year which showed off a funky exterior and interior design, inspired by C5 Aircross.
It will be underpinned by the CMF platform, and around 90 per cent will be locally manufactured which should keep prices down.
It will likely come with two engine options – a 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol mill and a 1.2L turbocharged petrol motor.
Upon arrival, it will take on the Nissan Magnite, Renault Kiger, Tata Punch, etc.
6. Mahindra eKUV100
Mahindra is expected to launch a KUV100-based EV (eKUV100) in India towards the end of this year.
It is being speculated that this new model could be the most affordable electric car in the country.
It made its first appearance at the 2020 Auto Expo in near-production form, with a 15.9 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a 40 kW electric motor.
It will retain the interior and exterior design of the petrol-powered KUV100 NXT.
The only minor changes are new badging and different interior trims.
