The list includes hatchbacks ranging from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 80 lakh

The year 2021 just wasn’t for SUVs–we saw some exciting launches in the hatchback segment as well. We saw some performance hatches being launched, including the i20 N Line, Altroz i-Turbo and the hottest one of them all, the Mercedes AMG A45 S.

  • It features a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, keyless entry, a digital instrument cluster, and a rear parking camera. In comparison to the Tiago, the NRG gains push-button start-stop and auto-folding ORVMs but misses out on automatic AC.

  • The AMG A45 S gets six driving modes: Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport +, Individual, and RACE. These modes help alter torque delivery, the level of driver assists in effect, gear shift timings, and cylinder compression.

One interesting thing that you can see is that there was no diesel hatchback launched in 2021. So, it was a petrol or turbo-petrol-powered year for the hatch market.
