Verna has been launched in the second half of the year and has still created a stir in the sedan segment. We drove the new Verna a couple of months back and one noteworthy thing to take home about was that the driving dynamics have improved drastically from the last generation. Further sweetening the deal are segment first features like cooled seats whereas Hyundai’s tried and tested power plants i.e a 1.6-litre diesel engine and a 1.6-litre petrol engine continue to serve the purpose well.
Error! The brand that you are trying to find does not sell cars in India anymore. However, this might come across as a shocker that Beat is currently India’s most exported car ! So it does deserve to be on this list for sure.
Tata Tiago AMT
The Tiago continues to be a high seller for Tata in India and the carmaker has now introduced a new automatic variant of the same. Tiago is based on Tata’s new Impact design philosophy and the car has been doing well in India ever since it was launched last year. The AMT variant has been launched this year and it uses the same 1.2-litre petrol variant under the hood which is good enough to produce 85 bhp of power along with 114 NM of torque. It is paired up to an automated manual gearbox which requires a little getting used to. I have been driving the same as my daily city car these days and I can without a doubt tag it as ‘ the best city car’ owing to its compact dimensions, good fuel economy and of course the automatic gearbox.
Mercedes Benz E Class LWB
Mercedes surprised everyone by launching only the long wheelbase updated variant of the E Class in India. However, the same has been doing really well in India ever since it has been launched and it again emphasizes on the fact that the carmaker Mercedes is doing things differently in the Indian market. You get a choice of two engine options with the new E Class- the E200 variants are powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine which churns out 184 bhp of power along with 300NM of torque whereas the bigger diesel option comes in the form of a 3.0-litre V6 motor which is good enough for 354 brake horsepower.
