In India, high fuel efficiency is always given preference over high power or performance cars. This market response has led to most of the companies focus more on bringing in better mileage cars at affordable rates. This also means that the enthusiast focused cars have a relatively small market and over the time have dwindled in numbers. However, the used market offers some pretty good deal in this respect and can provide 200 plus Bhp worth of bang for your buck. If you don’t have any issues with having a used car, here are 5 such examples. Also, the maintenance and service of these vehicles will cost a lot than an average car under Rs. 10 lakh price mark.
