These Are The Best Upcoming Cars In India Under Rs 5 Lakh!


very year, new cars are launched in India. Of these new launches, it is the budget cars that garner the most eyeballs. After all, the buyer base for such cars is quite big. An example is the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, which finds thousands of takers every month. However, it is not just Alto but a lot of other cars that garner the attention of a lot of people. Most of these cars fall under the Rs 5 lakh bracket. So, we thought of compiling a list of cars that are coming soon to India and cost less than Rs 5 lakh. With that said, take a look at the upcoming cars under 5 lakhs in the year 2017-2018.

Datsun Redi-GO 1.0-litre

Price ₹ 3.5 – 3.8 lakh
Specifications 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, petrol
Launch Date July 2017

Expected to be the first of all upcoming cars under 5 lakhs, the redi-GO 1000cc model will not be an all-new car. Instead, it will just have a more powerful 1000c three-cylinder engine. Estimated output of the three-pot unit is 67BHP and 91Nm. What is also likely to come with this new engine is the AMT transmission. Addition of new badges and graphics is expected too, just to separate this car from the redi-GO that is currently on sale.

Hyundai Eon Facelift

Price ₹ 3.25 – 4.05 lakh
Specifications 0.8-litre, 3-cylinder, petrol
Launch Date June/July 2017

The current Eon has been around for some time now and is due for a facelift. To take on the likes of the Renault Kwid and Maruti Suzuki Alto, expect the car to have a new face and some subtle upgrades on the interior and exterior fronts. Since it is likely to be a facelift, do not expect to see a change in the engine lineup of the new model Eon.

Renault Kwid Racer Edition

Price ₹ 4.50 – 5.00 lakh
Specifications 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, petrol
Launch Date October 2017

Remember the Kwid Climber? The Kwid Racer is its racy sibling and among the upcoming cars under 5 lakhs. The photos of the car have been doing rounds on the internet. What is likely to come on the car is a 1.0-litre engine in the same state of tune as the regular Kwid 1000cc. The changes will likely be in the styling department where the Kwid Racer will sport different bumpers, graphics and stickers and other styling elements. Expect similar treatment to be given to the interior too.

New Maruti Suzuki Alto

Price ₹ 2.60 – 3.80 lakh
Specifications 0.8-litre, 3-cylinder, petrol
Launch Date October 2017

The Alto has been Maruti Suzuki’s best-selling car for many years. Now it is ready to grow bigger and have more features with an all-new generation. All that will likely happen with the next-gen Alto. Also, expect the car to continue to offer gear mileage too. It is also likely to gain an AMT gearbox. The next gen Alto is likely to have a diesel engine too.

All-new Hyundai Santro

Price ₹ 4.03 – 4.91 lakh
Specifications 1.0-litre, 4-cylinder, petrol
Launch Date February/March 2017

The Santro is Hyundai’s India most-known product. Hyundai tried to replicate the success of the Santro with the Eon but it did not work as desired. So, plans are reportedly underway to bring the tall-boy Santro back. Either the Eon and i10 can be replaced with the new Santro in Hyundai India’s lineup. However, the only thing highely unlikely to be seen in the Santro is a diesel engine. What’s more likely is a CNG variant of the car.

Tata Nano Pelican

Price ₹ 2.70 – 3.70 lakh
Specifications 1.0-litre, 4-cylinder, petrol/0.8-litre, three-cylinder, turbo Diesel
Launch Date October 2017

The Nano Pelican is the internal name of a Nano-based hatchback from Tata. That means that while it is likely to be bigger than the Nano, it will be an Alto competitor. Hence, in all likelihood, it will be slotted between the Nano and the Tiago. You can call it the upmarket Nano. Under its hood will most likely be a 1.0-litre petrol engine. A 0.8-litre diesel engine may find its place under this car’s bonnet too.

With this, the Swift hatchback will enter its third generation in India. This means the car will be completely new, both outside and inside. Though the engine lineup is not likely to change, it may be enhanced to include the 1.0-litre BoosterJet engine from Baleno RS.

Maruti Suzuki has been carefully looking at the Renault Kwid’s success. It is now planning to introduce an all-new car to take on the Kwid. Reports suggest that this car will have SUV-like looks and a high ground clearance. Also, it is likely that this car will be on sale alongside the Alto. As far as the design inspiration goes, this car will likely borrow design cues from Suzuki Crosshiker concept (showcased at Tokyo Motor Show in 2013). Also, it could share the engine options with the Alto.
