There are plenty of cars available at your price range.
Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire - Diesel
If you want to opt for a low maintenance car with good features then you should go for Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire. Swift Dzire is the sedan version of normal Swift. Looking at the statistics Swift Dzire is the most selling diesel car in India followed by Baleno. It comes with all the features which should be present in an everyday car. You get ABS, Airbags, Music system (with 2-tweeters and 4 speakers), Digital Console, etc. Swift series is the most trusted Diesel series in India because of wide range of Maruti Suzuki's network and easily available spare parts. If you are looking for sedan then you should blindly go for Swift Dzire.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno - Diesel (Hatchback)
Baleno was a sedan car which was discontinued in 2010 but recently Maruti Suzuki decided to launch it again but converting it into a hatchback. If you are looking to buy a car then you must have heard about Maruti Suzuki Baleno because within couple months of its launch it managed to beat Hyundai's i20 and Swift Dzire in sales. It comes with 1200CC diesel engine (same as Swift Dzire) but with some upgrades over the interior. You get a touchscreen music system, Airbags, Automatic Lights, Automatic Wiper, etc. which are not present in Swift Dzire. You can go for Baleno if a hatchback fits your needs.
Hyundai i20 - Diesel / Petrol
Hyundai's i20 is said to be a premium hatchback which comes with a impressive price tag. If you are opting for Petrol rather than diesel then i20 must be at the top of your list. It's engine is more refined than Maruti Suzuki's cars and comes with better interior as well. Yes, you heard it right i20's interior is even better than Baleno because of the premium touch by Hyundai.
I will prefer you to go for Hyundai i20 because it comes with Diesel and Petrol as fuel options. I am a proud owner of this car and can openly say that this is the best in terms of Hatchback.
