At one time SUVs were beyond the reach of the common man, so hatchback cars rose to the peak of popularity. But just as one side of the wheel does not stay down forever, people’s choices have changed with the passage of time. In recent times, the tendency of customers towards buying low budget SUVs has increased a lot. Even now, various companies have launched micro or compact type SUVs to bring SUVs more within the reach of the middle class. To fulfill your dream at low cost, you can bring a whole bunch of shiny cars to your garage in just 7 lakh rupees.
Today’s list starts with the Tata Micro SUV Punch. The biggest thing is that the price of this car starts from Rs 5.99 lakh, which is quite attractive in the competitive market. Despite its compact size, the Punch offers a fairly large cabin and 366 liters of boot space, perfect for daily commutes around town or long weekend tours. Tata Motors has kept a single engine option but has also given the option of a five-speed manual and a file-speed automatic transmission. Features like 7 inch touch screen infotainment system, automatic climate control and rear parking sensor will be found in this car.
Just like the Tata Punch, you can bring another low-budget SUV, the Nissan Magnite, at Tk 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom). However, it comes with two engine variants – the 1.0 liter regular petrol engine and the powerful 1.0 liter turbo charged petrol engine. The outside design of Magnet is very stylish and eye-catching. Its attractiveness is further enhanced by the LED projector headlamps and the grille with chrome work. Inside, the spacious cabin with a boot space of 336 liters literally deserves praise.
The third-placed Renault Kiga compact SUV starts at Rs 6.49 lakh (ex-showroom). The exterior of the Kiger gets a sporty design body panel with LED headlamps and impressive 16-inch alloy wheels. There are two engine options for customers – 1.0 liter regular petrol engine and 1.0 liter turbo petrol engine. Naturally, customers will get more performance from the second option. Moreover, the boot space of 405 liters, the infotainment system with 8 inch touch screen keeps the Renault Kiger much ahead of the competition.
The Hyundai Exter is set to launch in July. Available to buy in five variants – EX, S, SX, SX(O) and SX (O) Connect. There are nine color schemes including three dual tones and six single tones. With the 1.2-litre petrol engine, customers can choose between a five-speed manual and a Smart Auto transmission. The estimated price of the car will be around Tk 6.50 lakh. That’s why if you have any objection with the above three cars, you can definitely wait till the launch of Hyundai Xter.
