In Pictures: Most affordable hatchbacks in India

Updated : 2020-04-25 23:16:25

If there is one thing the pandemic has highlighted during this lockdown phase is the importance of owning a private vehicle to ensure safe mobility. While it remains a fact that not all in India can afford a personal vehicle, one cannot rule out the perks of owning one when travel restrictions within a city are so stringent that one might need so to bring in essential items at one go. While on one side you could argue this might not be the best time to buy a vehicle given the uncertainty of the immediate future, we have to consider that more reliance on personal transport as opposed to public transport where the imminent danger of community contagion still exists, might become a preferred choice for a while. Keeping this argument in mind, let’s take a look at some of the top affordable hatchbacks in the market currently that you could consider post the lockdown.
