Best Compact Sedans in India

The entry-level sedan segment in India has been buzzing with activity ever since the introduction of sub-4-metres sedans. What was started simply as a way to circumnavigate the additional excise duty on cars measuring more than 4-metre in length has now become a norm, with all the participants of the C1-segment essentially being three-box versions of hatchbacks. Still, despite having small car roots, these cars enjoy a slightly better street presence along with offering a bigger boot. Here's a look at the best compact sedans in India along with their prices - 

Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire

Maruti Suzuki Dzire

The first car on our list is the Maruti Dzire, which is a Swift-based sub-4-metre compact sedan that has gone on to become one of the largest selling cars in the country. In fact, the Dzire enjoys great popularity in spite of the dying demand for sedans. The Dzire benefits from all the qualities of the Swift, including a spacious cabin, frugal engines, good ride quality, and low cost of maintenance, while even offering a larger boot. Also, the Dzire is now available with a VVT-equipped 1.2-litre engine from the Baleno, which is not available on the Swift.

Up next on our list of Best compact sedans in India is the Hyundai Aura, which is the sedan derivative of the Grand i10 Nios. Basically, the Aura is to the Nios what the Dzire is to the Swift, and like its arch-rival, benefits from the traits of the donor hatchback. What this means is that the Aura offers a practical cabin, matured ride, a long equipment list, and the same engine options that are available on the latest i10.

Honda Amaze

Honda Amaze - New and Used

The Amaze is the most affordable offering from Honda Cars India. While this compact sedan is based on the second-generation Brio, it must be mentioned here that the carmaker has no plans of bringing in the donor hatchback to our market. The Amaze comes with a rather premium interior. Moreover, it's the only car in its segment to offer a CVT option for both petrol and diesel motors. Also, as the earlier generation was on sale in the country for a pretty long duration, it's easy to find several examples in the used car market.

Ford Aspire

Ford Aspire - New and Used

The Ford Aspire is the compact sedan version of the Figo and like the donor hatchback, offers great dynamics, reasonably punchy engines, and good build quality. It also looks pretty good, especially since the facelift was launched last year.

Tata Tigor

Tata Bolt - New and Used

The last car on our list of Best Compact Sedans in India is the compact sedan version of the Tiago. Dubbed Tigor, this Tata model is the most affordable sedan in the country. It comes with a really attractive notchback design, has a fairly spacious cabin, great build quality and a 1.2-litre petrol engine that offers a good mix of frugality and performance. Thanks to its incredible pricing, the Tigor even ends up challenging some budget-end hatchbacks in terms of pricing.
