Don’t want to hop on to the SUV bandwagon? Here are some upcoming small cars that you could pick instead

The rising popularity of SUVs has cannibalised a lion’s share of hatchback sales, which used to be the most sought-after segment some time back. But there are some buyers who still prefer small cars for their practicality, efficiency and of course, their affordability. So, apart from the existing ones, what new options will you have in the near future? Here they are.

Expect the premium hatchback to get rear disc brakes, a more powerful 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine from the Venue and a BS6-compliant 1.5-litre diesel unit from the Kia Seltos, among others.

Hyundai’s Grand i10 Nios is set to get some more powertrain options in the future. Hyundai had confirmed that it will get the Venue’s 1.0-litre petrol engine along with a 6-speed manual transmission while the 7-speed DCT might not make it here.

Nissan Leaf

Expected price: Rs 30 lakh

Launch speculation for Nissan’s EV flagbearer have been rife for quite some time now. But we expect Nissan to finally bring the Leaf to India with a 40kWh battery pack and a claimed range of more than 400km. The Nissan Leaf gets an e-pedal technology that allows you to control acceleration as well as braking through a single pedal. It will go up against SUVs such as the Hyundai Kona and the MG ZS EV.

Tata Tiago Facelift

Expected price: Rs 4.50 lakh to Rs 6.50 lakh

Expected launch: 2020 Auto Expo

More than three years running, the Tata Tiago is bound to get a facelift in the early half of the year, probably by the 2020 Auto Expo. Test mules have been seen testing in Ladakh and Tata’s expected to give it just the BS6-compliant version of the existing 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol unit. With the upcoming facelift, Tata is likely to ditch the diesel motor from the Tiago’s powertrain options as the carmaker will not sell small displacement diesel engines in BS6 era. Here’s what else you can expect from it
