The Indian car market has grown multiple times since the start of the current millennium. While hatchbacks continue to be responsible for the biggest chunk of sales, the SUVs have been witnessing the strongest growth in terms of popularity. However, there’s another mainstream segment that has seen a decent growth in the last few years. We’re talking about the mainstream sedans on sale in the country. There are still many car buyers who prefer the comfort and elegance of a sedan over similarly priced hatchbacks/SUVs. Let’s have a look at the most spacious sedans in India from every segment of the mainstream car market –
Tata Tigor – Rs 4.71 – 7.01 Lakh
The Tata Tigor is the cheapest sedan you can buy in the country. However, in spite of the affordable price tag, it’s among the most spacious cars in its segment. Based on the Tiago, the Tigor offers a sufficiently spacious cabin that’s also pretty comfortable due to all the roominess and decent ride quality. Moreover, Tata has managed to squeeze out a boot space of 419-liters, which is more than what some pricier car offers.
Maruti Dzire – Rs 5.56 – 9.43 Lakh
The latest-generation Dzire is easily the most spacious car in its category. It’s worth mentioning here that the new Dzire measures 1735 mm in width, which makes it wider than not only other compact sedans but even 5 mm wider than the Ciaz. The Dzire offers a boot space of 378-liters, which is again pretty good for a sub-4-meter compact sedan.
Toyota Etios – Rs 6.80 – 8.79 Lakh
The Toyota Etios has to be the most spacious non-sub-4-meter sedan in its price bracket. The Etios offers enough space for five occupants. It offers a decent legroom, both in the front and the rear.
