The country’s profitable car market has been hit by another bolt from the blue. The Indian government has implemented a steep hike on petrol and there are speculations that a price hike on diesel is also in the offing. This was like the last nail in the coffin for the automobile manufacturers as they were already reeling under the hike of excise duty applied in this year’s union budget. The situation is quite grim for the car makers as they are baffled and are unable to understand what can be done of this scenario. The petrol car sales had already slumped with the escalating fuel prices since a couple of years. But, now with this gigantic increase, it seems like the car companies have been driven up the wall. On the other hand, Diesel Hatchbacks in the price range of Rs. 3 to Rs. 5 lakh are doing tremendously well. These Diesel Cars are fuel efficient and are equipped with powerful engines, which are apt for the Indian road and traffic conditions. These diesel Hatchback Cars have impressive Power and boast of a remarkable Mileage, which is luring all the car buyers into picking these instead of the petrol versions.
Let's talk about a few of these reasonably priced diesel cars, which have good engines and are low on the pocket as well. To start with the most affordable one, we have Tata Indica V2, which is claimed as one the most fuel efficient car in the country and offers mileage of 25 Kmpl. This diesel hatchback has a starting price of Rs. 3.72 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). It has a powerful 1396cc engine and is also offered with a 1405cc Turbomax engine, both fitted with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The higher end versions have many delightful comfort and safety features and this hatchback has been doing tremendously well since the time it has been launched. There is another face lifted version of this hatchback, which is christened as Tata Indica Vista. This revamped version is also being offered with a couple of different engine options and the base model of diesel if priced at Rs. 4.56 (ex-showroom New Delhi). This version has better features than the earlier one and also boasts of a healthy mileage and loaded interiors.
The next hatchback in terms of price is Chevrolet Beat diesel and the price of the diesel version starts at Rs. 4.51 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). This compact car is fitted with a 936cc engine and is said to generate a mileage of 25.44 Kmpl, which is a tad more than the Tata Indica. The base variant of Chevrolet Beat Diesel comes fitted with a power steering and an Ac apart from quite a few other comfort features and is doing impressive sales for the company since it has been launched recently. The top end version of this hatchback possesses automatic climate control, music system with speakers, ABS, central locking, airbags and many more such features. The last in this price range is Ford Figo and the entry level diesel variant is priced at Rs. 4.79 lakh. This hatchback features a commanding 1.4 litre diesel engine and is said to possess the best in class air conditioning system. The company claims that Ford Figo has all the features and equipment, which any small car owner would dream of and rightly so, this car has been doing amazing sales for the company. Meanwhile, several upcoming vehicles such as Tata Safari Storme, New Chevrolet Captiva, Renault Duster, Audi Q3, Premier Rio Diesel, New Hyundai Elantra, BMW 3 Series and Volkswagen Jetta petrol are gearing up for their respective launches coming up very soon. Recently, I shared that Tata Safari Storme and the Other Awaited Upcoming Cars.
