Price is a very important consideration for most car-buyers in India and this year too promises to be no different. So here are the best 5 budget cars you can get your hands on in 2016!

  1. Maruti Alto K10

Maruti Suzuki is India’s favourite car-manufacturer and its latest version of the beloved Alto is a superhit. It suits the middle-class small family segment perfectly with features that are just right. This update has got several interior and exterior changes and you will get features like 13-inch alloy wheels, new bumpers and a chrome front grille. You can also expect to fall in love with the new cabin with its new upholstery, control buttons and dual dashboard. The engine is 998cc which is absolutely great. There is a CNG offering as well.

  1. Hyundai Eon

This was Alto’s competition when it first came out way back in 2010. The Eon was considered a bit underpowered then but now Hyundai has got its act together by bringing in the update that is the K10’s rival in most respects. With a 3-cylinder 1-litre engine, the Fluidic design language adopted by the Hyundai Eon is a big hit. You also have the option of choosing the LPG version.

  1. Hyundai i10

The i10 has been a firm favourite with budget car lovers since it was launched in 2007. It received a facelift along with several engine changes in 2010 and it still continues to be a much-loved budget car in 2016. With this you will get a hatchback with an iRDE2 engine, 4-cylinder, 1.1 litre and a 5-speed manual transmission. There is also USB, Aux-In and a 2-DIN Audio system.

  1. Tata Tiago

This is one of the latest entrants in the budget car segment. This hatchback is equipped with a contemporary design that manages to look good both from the inside and the outside. The dashboard looks appealing and fresh. What surprised us is that the quality of plastic used is as good as the Baleno. There is a diesel variant as well.

  1. Datsun GO

This is another new entrant that manages to catch the imagination of budget car lovers. The GO hatchback is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine with a power output of 67bhp. There is a 5-speed manual gearbox as well. Datsun promises a fuel economy of 20.62km/l. You can expect the Datsun GO to give you good and reliable performance.
