Every year, the Indian auto sector witnesses growth in sales during the festive season. This is certainly a win-win situation for both buyers and manufacturers. While the car buyers are happy about bringing home a new set of wheels during the auspicious time period, manufacturers witness a spike in sales, which helps them offset the losses that might have been suffered earlier in the year. The carmakers are particularly looking forward to the festive season this year in order to have some relief from the prolonged sales slowdown they’ve been experiencing. While the companies would try to woo the new car buyers in the coming days by offering some lucrative discounts, here are 10 best cars you can safely choose from to have many years of pleasant motoring.
