India’s penchant for sedans is getting stronger. On top of being a status symbol, the roomier interiors and the additional luggage space is resulting in a lot of consumers upgrading from their A and B1 segment cars.
Let’s look at a few popular sedans in India.
Adding to the elegant looks of the Grand i10 hatch, Hyundai Xcent is one of the most well equipped cars and comes with a number of safety and segment features. Hyundai Xcent has a huge boot space, in fact one of the deepest in this segment, swept back headlamps, wrap around tail lamps with chrome inserts, dual tone rear bumpers, front bumpers with integrated spoiler design, diamond cut alloy wheels and dual tone beige and black interiors, surely making this car one of the popular sedans in India.
Honda City, the flag ship model of one of the most successful brands, is another popular sedan. Honda’s strategy to introduce a diesel engine in the City sedan line-up seems to be working in its favour. When Honda came out with a diesel powered Honda City with a 1.5 i-DTEC engine, the fuel consumption shot up to 26 kmpl. The petrol variants, with the 1.5 lire i-VTEC engine, have also seen a design makeover, and the level of features available have gone up significantly.
When India’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki re-launched their Dzire in 2012 as a sub-4 m version, it made the car cheaper and got more hatchback buyers to upgrade to it. Based on the new generation Swift platform, this popular sedan got additional features like push-button start, electric folding mirrors, keyless entry and power window functions. Given the phenomenal acceptance that this leading automobile brand has in India, the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire is being seen and accepted as a forefront contender in the compact sedan category in India.
Hyundai is known for offering some of the best value-for-money products and Verna Fluidic is no exception. The Fluidic design philosophy and a swing of variants loaded with features were two major contributing factors to the Verna Fluidic’s sales supremacy in India’s C Segment. Ever since Hyundai launched the Verna in a Fluidic avatar, this mid-sized premium sedan has been selling like hot cakes, and as result today it’s one of the top-selling sedans in the country. The Verna is offered in two petrol version, 1.4 litre and 1.6 litre, and one diesel, 1.4 litre, engine options.
When it comes to the ideal combination of all-around performance, style, comfort, utility, and fuel efficiency, the roomy sedan has always been a popular choice of vehicle for a lot of Indian buyers.
