People of India demand hot hatchbacks from manufacturers, but when they finally launch them, the hot hatchbacks are not as big as a hit that they expected them to be. One of the reasons is the pricing because the hot hatchbacks are priced on the higher side of the spectrum buyers just prefer to settle for a compact-SUV or some other bigger vehicle because they are more practical and at the end of the day, they have a family that will travel with them. However, there are still some enthusiasts that are looking for a fun little hot hatchback that can put a smile on their face.
