India became one of the fastest-growing automobile markets in the world before the COVID-19 pandemic. Even now, there is an addition of thousands of cars to the Indian roads every single day. It makes the roads congested but also makes every other car a common sight. Well, if you really want to stand out, these are a few cars that can help you do that. Here are five mass-segment affordable cars that stand out in the crowd.
Mahindra launched the all-new Thar in the Indian market last year. It remains highly popular the waiting period on the model is only increasing. The second-generation Thar carries forward the retro design with a modern look. Inspired by the iconic Jeep design, the all-new Thar definitely catches a lot of eyes on the roads. Mahindra offers the new Thar with various factory-fitted roof options, which attracts a lot of customers.
Even though the Force Gurkha is not available in the market at the moment, the all-new model will arrive at the showrooms at any moment now. Force Motors showcased the all-new Gurkha at the 2020 Auto Expo. The SUV was expected to be launched last year. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed the launch. The new Gurkha looks much more aggressive and attractive compared to the discontinued model. It also gets the classic jeep shape. In fact, the design of the Gurkha is inspired by the old G-Wagens and it definitely stands out in a sea of automobiles.
Isuzu D-Max V-Cross
India is not a market for pick-up trucks and many failed models in the past have proved that. Isuzu somehow captured the lifestyle segment customers with the D-Max V-Cross. It is currently the only pick-up truck available to private car owners in India. It measures more than 5.2-metres and the massiveness definitely looks apart on the roads that are mostly filled with budget hatchbacks. The V-Cross has the presence of a dominating road. Isuzu recently updated the V-Cross and launched the BS6 compliant engine with the vehicle. It remains decently in demand even now.
With the competition from the likes of Creta and Seltos, the vehicles like Kicks and Capture really could not come up on the sales chart. However, Kicks really looks different on the roads, especially its dual-tone variants that come with a contrasting colour on the roof. Nissan launched the Kicks with a more powerful turbocharged petrol engine that has got the interest of customers. But the sales are nowhere near the models from the competition. With the low numbers of sales and unique looks, the Kicks sure has the power to capture a lot of eyes on the roads.
Maruti Suzuki S-Presso
Maruti Suzuki entered the micro-SUV with the Ignis and that car stands out in the crowd too. The S-Presso, however, with its small size and SUV shape gets a lot of attention on the roads. It is sold through the Arena sales channel and just like any other Maruti Suzuki car, it is quickly becoming a common sight on the roads. However, it remains an interesting package to look at on the public roads.
