There were many cars in India under 5 lakhs last year, but now, due to government norms and safety rules, car manufacturers had to put extra features and price of all cars has increased in India. That’s why price of most cars has gone above 5 lakhs which was below 5 lakhs last year. The On-road prices of cars like Tiago, Celerio and Wagon R are above 5 lakhs now.
But there are still some good cars under 5 lakhs and each of them has improved safety such as Anti-lock braking system and Airbags compulsory as Indian government has made it compulsory.
So here are some best cars under 5 lakh which you can buy today in India.
