Hot entry-level sedans to pick in the range of Rs. 6-8 lakh
Priced at Rs 4.82 lakh for the petrol BS3 version and 5.62 lakh for the diesel BS3 version, the new Mahindra Verito retains all its Logan characteristics while moving a notch up in the design department. With held-back looks and basic interiors, the Verito is a well built lower midsize sedan with lots of space on the inside and possibly one of the most spacious rear seats in its class. The Verito is a great sedan for someone on a shoestring budget who is looking for a suitable 3 box car.
Chevrolet Aveo: Priced at Rs. 5.90 to 6.70 lakh, the Aveo is one car where you are better off being chauffer driven. The Chevy Aveo is a midsize sedan that fits in the lower C segment in India. It's quirky and a little boxy in places, however the overall design is more contemporary than some of its competition. Interior space and finish are decent, but the materials used could have been better. The Aveo is available with a number of engine choices and that is what really gives this car the sort of versatility to cater to a plethora of customers.
Maruti-Suzuki Swift Dzire: A great diesel 3 box sedan that is exceptionally well priced at Rs. 4.95 to 7.20 lakh. In essence it is the Swift albeit for a boot stuck on the back. The car does lose some of its good looks due to this, but the overall package has been hard to resist and the Dzire too has witnessed stellar sales. The Dzire shares its interiors and engine options, namely the 1.2 K Series petrol and 1.3 DDis diesel, with the Swift range and drivability is also in the same league as the boot adds only 30 kilograms more to the overall weight of the car.
