Premium Hatchbacks are fuel-efficient, easy-to-drive and maintain and often come with as much seating space as compact sedans or compact SUVs. They currently range between Rs 5,50,000 – Rs 10,00,000 on the new car market. The used Premium Hatchbacks car is an ideal buy for those wanting something more than just a basic set of wheels; good ride, seating for 5 and more features including safety kit–all for price that is less than you’d pay for a entry-level hatchback. There is plenty to choose from if you have Swift or Baleno on mind–they are segment leaders after all. But Honda Jazz trumps both in space and comfort while VW Polo is a really good option for enthusiastic drivers.
Premium Hatchbacks used car prices average around Rs 324,000 in Delhi with lower price tending to be around Rs 270,000 and the upper end price tending to be around Rs 360,000.The higher end of the used car price range will get you Maruti Suzuki Swift which is 8 years old while if you veer towards the minimum, then you will have to contend with Honda Brio which is 2 years old.

While you may have to shell for minor wear and tear plus replace tyres, there shouldn’t be any unpleasant surprises with an i20 that has clocked less than 60,000 km. But do get it checked nonetheles. Overall, i20 is a very reliable car with the exception of early specimens suffering from steering judder.
Recommendation #2: Hyundai I20 Magna O 1.4 Crdi
