Looking to buy a car under Rs 5 Lakh? We bring you a detailed analysis of what is coming to Indian shores in 2014

 

 

Upcoming Cars Under 5 Lakh

 

 

The Indian Public will have a dearth of choices for cars under Rs 5 Lakh in 2014 with manufacturers like Volkswagen and Skoda finally getting into the numbers game. Hyundai will have a relatively quiet year in this segment next year but expect alot of movement from the likes of Maruti Suzuki and Tata Motors. The Bajaj RE60 too will finally see the light of day in 2014. The biggest car of the year in the segment though will be the Datsun Go and it will surely churn up alot of excitement and movement in this sector. 

 


Bajaj RE 60

Expected Launch: Mid 2014

Expected Price: Under Rs 1.25-2.50 Lakh

 

Bajaj RE60

 

 

We start off with the cheapest car that will hit the streets next year. The Bajaj RE60 will be classified as a ‘Quadricycle’ hence exempting it from several safety and emissions regulations. However, don’t be fooled by the diminutive size of the RE60 as it is very much going to be a useable, 4-seater automobile. While the RE60 will be used more as a city car, we do expect it to sell in decent numbers, especially in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. Although currently, as per regulations, the RE60 cannot be sold to individuals, expect the RE60 to replace the aging auto rickshaw by the end of the decade.

 


Datsun GO

Expected Launch: Early 2014

Expected Price: Rs 3.5–4.5 Lakh

 

Datsun Go+

 

 

The Datsun Go is one of the most anticipated cars of 2014. With prices expected to be under the Rs 4 Lakh mark for the basic cars, the Datusn Go will most certainly create waves in the cut throat Indian Automotive scene. With the 1.2 Litre petrol and the 1.5 Litre (or smaller) diesel engine from the Micra slated to do duty in the Go, expect the new Datsun to be a hoot to drive. Not only will the Go platform be used to make a hatchback but as we have already mentioned in our ‘MUVs for 2014’ story, the platform has spawned an MUV and will spawn a sub-4 meter sedan and a sub-4 meter SUV in the near future too. The Datsun GO’s funky interiors coupled with the well styled body will certainly make it a crowd favorite and a serious threat to the likes of the Suzuki Alto, Wagon R and Hyundai’s Eon and i10 family.
