Think hatchback and chances are that low-priced and highly frugal models would come to your mind. However, it must be mentioned here that not all hatchbacks on sale in the country are powered by engines that focus on delivering high mileage. Instead, we have at least five cars that come with powerful engines that deliver a power output that is high enough to match that of some of the costlier cars. Keeping this in mind, we have prepared a list of 5 most powerful hatchback cars of India in 2019 –
The first model that comes to our mind on thinking of the most powerful hatchback cars of India is the Volkswagen Polo, which is available in the GT trim with powerful turbo-petrol engine options that offers a good mix of power and mileage. The Polo GT TSI even comes with bigger wheels and slightly jacked-up suspension to make up for the increase in engine power. Also, the Polo is a well-built car that provides the user with a great balance between sporty handling and good ride quality.
The petrol version of the Hyundai Elite i20 comes with a puny 1.2-litre petrol engine that develops a mere 82 bhp and 115 Nm. However, the diesel variant is the one that takes the cake with a maximum power of 90 bhp and a peak torque of 220 Nm. This makes the diesel-sipping version of the Korean hatchback one of the most powerful vehicles in its category. In fact, the diesel engine of the i20 is the same model that makes for the base diesel motor for the much more expensive Hyundai Creta.

Like the Honda Jazz, the Honda WR-V, which is simply a crossover-inspired version of the hatchback, is on sale with BSVI-compliant power options. The updated pseudo-crossover offers both petrol and diesel engine options. It also offers some styling updates and additional features. The BSVI petrol engine for the WR-V offers 90 PS and 110 Nm, while the BSVI diesel heart outputs 100 PS and 200 Nm. The petrol engine is on sale with both manual and CVT automatic options, while the diesel engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. This makes the WR-V quite a powerful SUV-styled hatchback.

Maruti Baleno is the king of B2-segment and rules with its premium looks, highly feature-laden cabin, frugal petrol and diesel engines and low maintenance costs. However, what many often overlook is that this hatchback is even available with a powerful 1.2-litre Dualjet petrol engine that develops 90 PS of maximum power. This, combined with the low kerb weight, makes the Baleno a hotter hatch than many.

Like the Maruti Baleno and the Hyundai Elite i20, the petrol variant of the Honda Jazz comes with a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine. However, with 90 PS of maximum power, it’s a tad more powerful that its immediate rivals. However, its engine is a free-revving iVTEC unit that offers a pretty strong performance. While the Jazz isn’t the fastest car here, it’s surely among the better models in its price range when it comes to confident dynamics .
