Diesel car within 5-7 Lacs in India


Everyone has a question on diesel cars. After all with ever rising petrol prices, diesel cars seems to have found huge favours with Indian car buyers


I want to buy a diesel hatchback that fits my budget of Rs 6-7 lakh. My priorities are a responsive engine and well built interiors. What car would you recommend?

Diesel car within 5-7 Lacs in India

With your defined price range and taking ex-showroom Delhi you have a choice of 40 odd cars. These includes sedans (3-Box cars) and hatchbacks. Car models that you can chose from are: Tata Motors Vista, Indigo CS, Manza Club Class, Fiat Punto, Chevrolet Beat, Hyundai i20, Ford Figo, Toyota Etios and Liva, Nissan Micra, Renault Pulse, Maruti Suzuki Ritz, Swift, Dzire, Skoda Fabia, Volkswagen Polo, Mahindra Quanto, literally the entire range of cars from most manufacturers.

The Micra diesel is powered by Renault’s 1.5 K9K engine and is extremely responsive with lots of low-end torque. The interiors are well made but the light-weight body doesn’t give it a solid feel. That said, the Micra is quite well built and should take the rigours of Indian roads capably. You could also look at the Renault Pulse, which is essentially the same car as the Micra but with smarter looks.


Budget 6-9 Lakhs, August 28 2016.
