Purchase Guide: Best Cars Between Rs. 2-4 lacs

Published On  October 14, 2015 08:25 PM By Konark Tyagi at CarDekho.com

An entry-level hatchback is the most suited transport for four people, with basic components like an air conditioner, a decently solid body that will spare you from the changing climate outside. Also, it is the stepping stone into the four wheeled world which in itself is a very special feeling. With the festive season just around the corner, these are the vehicles you should be considering:

Renault Kwid

Price: Rs.2.56- 3.53 Lakhs

Renault KWID

Kwid created a lot of buzz around its launch, owing to its big-car like styling, fuel efficiency of 25+ kmpl and a starting price tag of Rs. 2.57 Lacs (ex-showroom Delhi). Kwid is a very good value for money proposition for any first time car buyer and the top end variant comes equipped with segment first features like a 7-inch MediaNAV system, driver-side airbag. Deliveries for the Kwid have just begun but sadly this latest offering from the French carmakers stable has a waiting period of almost 2 months.


  • Engine: 0.8-litre, 3-cylinder, Petrol
  • Power: 54 BHP
  • Torque: 72 Nm
  • Transmission: 5-speed manual
  • Mileage (Petrol)- 25.17 KMPL


Maruti Alto 800

Price: Rs 2.89 - 3.47 Lakhs

Maruti Alto 800

Maruti’s unquestionable reliability, tried and tested 800cc engine and fuss free ownership experience are all the factors that make Alto a very compelling buy. Starting from a price tag of around Rs. 2.89 Lacs, this hatchback has been our country’s most sold car in the last decade.


  • Engine: 0.8-litre, 3-cylinder, Petrol
  • Power: 47 BHP
  • Torque: 69 Nm
  • Transmission: 5-speed manual
  • Mileage (Petrol / CNG): 22.74 KMPL / 30.36 KMPK

Hyundai Eon

Price: Rs. 3.10- 4.13 Lakhs

Hyundai EON

Hyundai’s fluidic design philosophy is what defines this entry level offering from the Korean car makers stable. Eon scores well on looks and interiors of this car feel more plush and premium as compared to its counterparts, thanks to the dual- tone theme that runs throughout the interiors. Eon also has a commendable air conditioner that cools the cabin in a jiffy. However, the car has poor NVH levels (noise, vibration and handling) and you can hear and feel plenty of vibrations and engine clatter inside the cabin.  


  • Engine: 0.8-litre, 3-cylinder, petrol
  • Power: 55 BHP
  • Torque: 75 Nm
  • Transmission: 5-speed manual
  • Mileage (Petrol / LPG): 21.1 KMPL / 15.5 KMPL
  • Range (Petrol / Petrol + LPG): 675 Km / 1202 Km


Datsun Go

Price: Rs. 3.23-4.19 Lakhs


If space is what you are looking for, Datsun Go is the vehicle to go for. It is the biggest car in our segment and perfectly feeds our ‘size for price’ ideology. Go also has the biggest and the most powerful engine in this segment -1.2-litre petrol motor than produces 67Bhp of power. However, Datsun still has a lot of ground to cover when it comes to after sales service and reliability issues.


  • Engine: 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol
  • Power : 67 BHP
  • Torque : 104 Nm
  • Transmission : 5-speed manual
  • Mileage : 20.63 KMPL
  • Range : 722 Km
