Five great budget cars that no one is buying

Snapshot: If only sales numbers made the car great, there would be only few of them worth buying. Here are a few cars that people don't consider but they are great options considering the exclusivity they have to offer. What's more? They are affordable too.

When it comes to car-buying, even the most well-informed buyers get overwhelmed with the great number of choices that are out there, and tend to buy cars that are most popular, and they do it for the sake of being safe. Here are some great budget cars that you can go with and unlike the rest, they offer you great exclusivity.  

Tata Nano

Nano has come a long way and is no longer seen as an inexpensive car and it isn’t. A fuel-efficient engine coupled with an AMT transmission make it great for city commute, and is in fact perfect for quick run to your nearest grocery store. Can be parked in tightest spaces and can be manoeuvred into and out of narrow lanes suited only for two-wheelers. There isn’t another car in the entry-level segment that can quite match its charm. Makes a great second car if you are already tired driving the one you own in the hustle and bustle of the city.   

Ford Figo / Figo Aspire

Both these cars made a mark when they were launched, they still are the best in class when it comes to safety and offer 6 airbags with the top variants. But that’s not all, the cars offer very strong engine options among petrol as well as diesel, making it a great driver’s car. The car managed to sell just over thousand units in August, 2016 and remains an underdog that people fail to notice. Check the sales figures of the car by clicking here! For those who love to drive, these cars are great alternatives to the Polo GT and other popular cars in this segment.  

Fiat Linea Classic

Fiats are known for their vault like build quality and the Linea classic is no different. It is as contemporary as it can get and the understated style hasn’t aged despite years into production. Makes a great alternative to the sub-four meter sedans the market is flooded with at the moment. The two engine choices are at par if not better than others, what’s definitely better is the drive and ride quality. 

Honda Brio

Don’t let the compact dimensions of the Brio confuse you. The car is equipped with the same engine options as the Amaze and the petrol unit puts out an impressive 88PS of power. It’s zippy and makes a great fun-to-drive car. The car now gets all new sporty black interiors that are borrowed from the Amaze and suit it all the more. The car managed to sell just under thousand units making is almost non-existent on roads. The only downside is perhaps the relatively small boot capacity. Check the sales figures here.

Chevrolet Sail

Chevrolet remains among the very few manufacturers that managed to pull the sub-four meter sedan with elegance. Unlike some of the other cars, the boot does not look stubby and in comparison to the rest of the competition, it looks almost elegant. The car is spacious, comfortable and has decent performance on tap. You get decent amount of safety features and a very practical car that has to offers much more exclusivity than any other sub-four meter cars. With sales number as low as 200 per month, you can avail attractive benefits too.
