Hatchback cars are amongst the top sellers in every month’s list of most sold cars, the reason being the comparatively low pricing which not only increases the availability of the car but, these cars also come with low maintenance and high mileage which make the customers attract towards itself. And to add a cherry on top some of the hatchbacks even comes with an automatic transmission option to make the ride even more comfortable, and to ease your reading we have the list of the top 5 most deserving automatic hatchback cars present in the Indian market as of 2021.
Coming at the number 1 position is the all loved car Maruti Suzuki Wagon-R, this car is amongst one of the cars with no class difference, the poor have it, the medium class has it and even the rich class has it. The Wagon-R automatic is available in 2 option – the first being the 1.0-litre engine and the other being the more powerful 1.2-litre petrol engine.
At the 2nd position, we have the Hyundai Santro, with a slightly lower-powered engine of 1.1-litre generating 69 hp max. the car however does look a bit weirdly shaped and the power does feel a bit outdated. These drawbacks make the Hyundai Santro a step down from the 1st position.
At the 3rd position on our list, we have the lesser-known Datsun Go with a 1.2-litre engine generating 77 hp of power. The Datsun Go is one of the most affordable automatic cars in India however the lack of public interest has made the sale of this car not up to the mark.
Coming on 4th position we have another Maruti car, the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso with a 1.0-litre engine generating 68 hp of max power. The car however is not as pleasing to the eyes as the others, with a boxy design this Maruti offering doesn’t have a huge fan following as its siblings.
Lastly, we have the Tata Tiago which looks great, feels great from the inside and does carry a more powerful 1.2-litre petrol engine generating 86 hp of max power, but the engine does feel a need of fine-tuning and does give a car a bit of roughness, the reason such a great car ends at number 5 on our list.
