When choosing a car, especially on budget, we often only look at the design, features and mileage of the car, overlooking the most important aspect, safety. Well, gone are the days when safety features in a car were considered premium and only the top-class cars used to feature those. Today, there are many budget cars that offer plenty of safety features, so here’s a list of the top 7 cars that come with 6 airbags for under 10 lakhs.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno
The Baleno is one of the premium hatchbacks in its segment and provides top-notch comfort and ride quality. It has spacious interiors, classy looks, and great mileage and also the best part is you can get all of these along with safety for under 10 lakhs. The top trims of the Baleno, like the Zeta and Alpha, come with 6 airbags, which cost Rs 8.38 lakh (ex-showroom), so this is a great option if you want comfort, mileage and safety. Oh, and it also gets the benefit of Maruti’s huge service network across the country.
The Glanza might just be one of the most underrated hatchbacks in the country. The hatchback has decent looks, great mileage and Toyota’s reliability. The reason why it is so overlooked and maybe the biggest issue is that the Glanza is more expensive than the Baleno which makes it a little harder to justify. Nonetheless, the G variant of this hatchback also comes with 6 airbags and is priced at Rs 8.73 lakh (ex-showroom).
The new Nexon has been in the spotlight lately due to its heavy makeover and updated features. Though the engine feels a bit underpowered, the Nexon is still a solid SUV with 6 airbags as standard across all its variants. The starting price of the Nexon is Rs 8.10 lakh (ex-showroom), which makes it a good option if you don’t mind the engine.
The only sedan in this list, the Aura, is one of the cheapest cars with airbags. The base variant of the Aura with 6 airbags starts at Rs 6.44 lakh (ex-showroom). The Aura is definitely a value-for-money sedan with spacious interiors, good ground clearance, feature-packed, a smooth engine and an integrated spoiler.
The entry-level i20 with 6 airbags is priced at Rs 6.99 lakh (ex-showroom) and there’s really not much bad about this car to talk about. With the new design and features update, this hatchback is one of the best budget cars with a smooth and peppy engine, good ride quality and spacious interiors.
