Hyundai cars are well known for offering top-notch quality levels at an affordable price tag. The brand’s portfolio in India currently consists of 12 models that are closely related in purpose and price, making choosing the right car a tedious task. So to help you in this decision making process we have brought a quick guide for choosing the right Hyundai Car.
Hyundai India is currently the 2nd largest car brand in the country and holds a 15 percent market share. Hyundai car line-up consists of hatchbacks, sedans and SUVs with prices ranging from as low as Rs 4.9 lakh (ex-showroom) and going all the way up to Rs 35.54 lakh (ex-showroom). Selecting the right car depends on a lot of factors like present need, budget and personal preference.
Budget serves as one of the most important criterion in choosing the right car. For example, if you have a budget of around Rs 10 lakh, then you are offered with a host of options from hatchbacks to compact SUVs and sedans. Now let’s have a glance at the car models in Hyundai’s line-up based on price and body type:-
Hyundai car model range starts with the entry-level hatchback, the Santro. Priced between Rs 4.9 lakh and Rs 6.4 lakh (ex-showroom), this car will be a perfect choice for any firs-time car buyers. The Hyundai Santro is available with petrol and CNG powertrain options mated to either a manual or an automatic transmission option. But if you stretch your budget a bit, then you can opt for the Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS which is available at Rs 5.39 lakh (ex-showroom). This Hyundai car offers a better in-cabin experience and can be your ideal city and highway car on a budget.
Going further up the ladder, we have the Hyundai Aura sedan which is priced from Rs 6.09 lakh (ex-showroom). This Hyundai car model is offered with a petrol, diesel and CNG powertrain option. The highlight of this Hyundai sedan is its long feature list and the massive 402 litres of boot space which is a boon during your weekend trips.
Next up is the premium budget segment. The first car here is the Hyundai i20 hatchback. An all-rounder, this Hyundai car model offers a feature-laden premium cabin along with ample space, bundled in an easy-to-drive city-friendly package. Priced from Rs 7.03 lakh, this hatchback is the perfect choice for anyone who wants a perfect car that is premium and sophisticated on a tight budget. The car is available with the choice of petrol and diesel engine option and is also offered in a sportier i20 N-Line guise as well.
Done with the low slung models, next up are the SUVs. Starting at Rs 7.53 lakh (ex-showroom), the 2022 Venue is the cheapest SUV in Hyundai car’s line-up and offers a comfortable sitting for five along with a long features list. Above the compact SUV, sits India’s best-selling SUV, the Hyundai Creta.

This car also comes with a 7-seater option, called the Hyundai Alcazar which is priced at Rs 15.9 lakh (ex-showroom). The Alcazar is the only 7-seater Hyundai car currently on sale in the country.
The flagship Hyundai car model in India is the 2022 Tucson. Packing in luxurious interiors and best in class features, the Hyundai Tucson is priced in the range of Rs 27.70 and Rs 34.54 lakh (ex-showroom). If the budget is no bar for you, then we suggest you pick the Tucson, as for its perfect combination of class-leading luxury, comfort, and power coupled with good off-roading capabilities. Apart from these, Hyundai also has an environment-friendly option in the Kona EV, which offers a claimed range of 484 kilometres on a single charge.
