Top 5 Diesel Hatchbacks In India 2012 Above Rs. 5 lakh

People in India are crazy for hatchbacks because of the roads are quite narrow. Also due to the parking problem in India, people are going for hatchbacks instead of sedans. The reason is that they find it difficult to park their car, or to drive in overcrowded places.

A hatchback car is perhaps the most practical design in passenger cars. Hatchback has passenger sitting area integrated with the cargo area which is accessible from behind. In case you need more cargo space, you can easily fold the seats in the back seating area to increase it.

Some of the most popular hatchbacks available in India are – Hyundai Santro Xing, Hyundai i10, Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, Maruti Suzuki Zen Estilo, Chevrolet Beat, Tata Indica, Toyota Liva and many more. All these hatchbacks cost below Rs. 5 lakh.

Mostly people who are beginners buy Hatchbacks. The reason is simple, they have less power, less engine capacity, easy driving and can easily learn driving.
Due to high petrol prices in India, people who are willing to buy a car are preferring mid segment diesel hatchback cars. Though, you may get a heavy discount offer on a petrol car. All the car manufacturers like Hyundai, Chevrolet, Tata, Toyota, Maruti Suzuki, Honda and Skoda are providing maximum discount offers on petrol variants. But still, people are choosing diesel cars so that they can drive their car without investing more on fuel. Diesel cars have more mileage than petrol cars which makes it easier to roam in city.
