While touchscreen systems have become one of the most useful high-end features to be offered on affordable cars, digital instrument clusters are fast gaining popularity

Today, most affordable cars come with a fully digital instrument cluster and wireless charging, features that were earlier reserved for premium models. In fact, even auto climate control, and touchscreen systems are now offered in models such as the Tata Tiago and Hyundai Grand i10 Nios. We recently brought you a list of the top 5 most affordable cars with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and now, here’s a look at models with a digitised gauge cluster:

Maruti S-Presso

  • The S-Presso is offered with a digital instrument cluster which is placed on the centre console, above the AC vents and touchscreen infotainment system. 

  • The screen displays the speedometer, tachometer, gear and fuel indicator, driving range and trip meter.

  • The digital cluster is offered with all the variants, but you can check average fuel efficiency, distance to empty and gear indicator only from the VXi variant. 

  • It retails from Rs 3.78 lakh to Rs 5.26 lakh.

Renault Kwid

  • Renault offers an LED digital instrument cluster from the base-spec STD variant of the Kwid.

  • It is the only model in its segment to feature a digital driver’s display.

  • The Kwid’s unit gets digital readouts for a few details, including tachometer and fuel level, while a centrally placed TFT screen displays the odometer, speed, and gear position indicator (MT variants).

  • Renault has priced the hatchback between Rs 3.18 lakh and Rs 5.39 lakh.

Tata Tiago/Tigor

  • The Tiago and Tigor duo gets a digital instrument cluster as standard.

  • Their display units feature digital readouts for the tachometer and fuel level while a centrally placed TFT screen relays speed and gear position indicator.

  • While the Tiago is the only hatchback to feature a digitised gauge cluster in its segment, the sub-4m sedan space has the Hyundai Aura with a semi-digital unit.

  • Tata retails the Tiago from Rs 4.99 lakh to Rs 6.95 lakh while the sedan is priced between Rs 5.59 lakh and Rs 7.73 lakh.

Renault Triber

  • Like Renault’s entry-level hatchback, the Triber gets an LED digital instrument cluster as standard. Its display is similar to the one on the Kwid.

  • The Triber is the only model to get a digitised gauge cluster in its price range.

  • It retails from Rs 5.30 lakh to Rs 7.82 lakh.

Renault Kiger

  • While the Kiger's top-spec RXZ variant gets a 7-inch colour display in the instrument cluster, other variants get a Triber-like unit. The 1.0-litre RXZ MT is the most affordable trim to sport the digital driver’s display.

  • The RXZ’s unit changes skins and has different widgets based on the drive modes while the one on other variants functions just like the Triber’s.

  • It is the most affordable sub-4m SUV priced between Rs 5.45 lakh and Rs 9.75 lakh.
