Like we keep repeating often, the Indian car market is one that has most of its action happening in the lower segment. Even today, the entry-level segments account for huge sales every month, which is a clear indicator of the high importance of this section of the market. Keeping this in mind, we have selected the top 5 budget cars in India under 4 lakhs in both new and used markets.
The Renault Kwid was launched more than four years ago but has managed to leave a lasting impression on the car buyers. It impresses with its mini-SUV looks and offers a high ground clearance that gives it a very bold stance. It is available with both 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre engine options, with the latter even providing an optional AMT.
Maruti Alto 800 is the entry-level model in the model lineup of the country’s biggest carmaker and it impresses with its low maintenance costs, frugal yet peppy engine, decent ride and easy availability of spares. The Alto has also been on sale long enough to be easily available in the used car market of any part of the country. This car is highly reliable and can provide you with many years of happy motoring.

The Maruti Wagon R is the most popular tallboy in the country and enjoys high sales numbers every month. The third generation of the company’s popular tallboy is being sold with both petrol and CNG options and even offers an optional AMT on both 1.0 and 1.2-litre motors. It’s also the most practical car in its price segment and comes across as a proper VFM product.

The Datsun redi-GO is based on the Renault Kwid and shares its engine and the platform with the French sibling. It’s ultra-affordable and offers a roomy cabin. Like the Kwid, it also provides you with an optional AMT. Maintenance is cheap and the crossover styling, along with high ground clearance, is a pretty big plus point.
The last car here is the Maruti S-Presso, the latest budget-end hatchback from the country’s largest-selling carmaker. The S-Presso takes on the likes of Renault Kwid and Datsun redi-GO, and comes wit the same 1.0-litre engine as the Alto k10. It’s even on sale with both 5-speed manual and AMT gearbox options. Another highlight is the 180 mm ground clearance.
