Indian Automotive industry which was facing a slowdown since the last two years has shown a little optimism with a new government at the centre and consumers more willing to open their purse strings. There has been a 3% increase in car sales in the month of May. This shows the growing optimism within the auto industry and public in general.
Most car manufacturers launch new models during the festival season and this year is not going to be any different. The hatch segment is the volumes driver and all car manufactures want a share of the pie. Let`s look at the most awaited hatchback models in 2014.
|Company||Segment (Hatch Back)||Price (in Lakhs)|

|Tata Motors||Bolt||5 – 8|

|Maruti Suzuki||New Alto||3 – 4|
So if you are planning to buy a hatchback and can wait for another 3-4 months then I suggest you wait till the above models are launched. You will have the latest hatchbacks to choose from and you can choose the one which fits your budget and requirements.
