This list includes sedans, SUVs and an MPV with the fastest 0-100kmph sprint time

2022 was a year that saw many new launches, some facelifts, some electric vehicles and a few hybrid vehicles as well. But most importantly, we got to see development in engines and powertrains, giving us vehicles capable of making the 0-100kmph sprint in less than or close to 10 seconds, priced under Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom).
