We find out Most Suitable Cars for Driving in India that gives Driving Pleasure.
Many Car manufacturers have a reputation of making cars that are fun to drive even when their main focus is on building ecofriendly and safe cars. We list down hot hatchback, sedans and SUVs in India that are great fun to drive and are still practical for day to day use.
Fun to Drive Best Handling Hatch-Back
The Grand i10 Nios Turbo is currently the fastest hatchback that you can get and it is courtesy the 1.0 turbo petrol that is found on the Venue. The 100 bhp and 172Nm petrol along with the lightweight body makes for a fast car. If you want speed then the Nios Turbo is it plus the 5-speed manual is also fun. This is the most affordable turbo petrol hatchback.
The Freestyle from Ford comes with both 1.2l petrol and a 1.5l diesel. Plus along with the manual, the Freestyle is fun to drive and involving with a nice chassis set-up and good handling. The engine is also responsive whether be it the petrol or the torque rich diesel. For a Ford the steering is also clear and direct.
The Polo has always been a fun to drive option and now it gets even better. If you like driving then the Polo is still remains the best option overall. Now it is even better as post BS6 the Polo gets a 1.0 TSI with a manual. It makes 110 bhp and 175Nm. The 6-speed manual is fun to drive and engaging along with the superb steering and handling. Being a Volkswagen the steering feel is the best and it feels the sportiest.
Maruti knows small cars better than anyone else and its 1.2l petrol remains a fun to drive choice too. It is nice to rev and feels fun along with a peppy nature. The Swift is the most Maruti and also one of the most fun to drive hatchback cars. The manual is the one we would recommend as it is nice and slick along with the 1.2l petrol which loves to rev. Around corners it feels the tightest amongst Maruti cars and is still the best small car they make in terms of fun to drive nature.
Fun to Drive Best Handling Sedans
The Rapid from Skoda now only gets a 1.0 TSI which makes 110 bhp and 175Nm. Amongst the sedans, the engine is responsive and fun to drive with an involving manual gearbox. The Rapid is firm and feels planted around corners while the steering is also the most direct. It is also priced very well which means it is a bargain fun to drive car.
Just like the Rapid, the Vento is also good to drive with crisp dynamics which is similar to the Volkswagen cars. The moment you drive it, you will like the power of the TSI turbo and the manual which involves you the most. The Vento is also fun in the way it drives and feels firmly set-up where the chassis is tuned to being fun to drive.
The new Honda City is the most fun to drive sedan with the naturally aspirated 1.5l petrol. The one to buy if you love driving is the manual of course. The City petrol makes 121 bhp and 145Nm while the 6-speed manual is wonderful to use. Yes the new City rolls more and is bigger but the engine is the best when it comes to naturally aspirated engines and it is still an impressive car in terms of overall dynamics.
Fun to Drive Best Handling SUVs
The Venue takes the edge as the most fun to drive compact SUV because it offers you the most choice with its 120 bhp 1.0 turbo petrol. If you are looking for a fun to drive compact SUV then we suggest the 1.0 Turbo petrol manual or the DCT as the Venue offers you everything in that aspect. We also like the fact that the Venue Turbo petrol also gets paddle shifters which is again the only one to have a turbo petrol and paddle shifters.
The EcoSport has always been a fun to drive SUV and remains that even today. The basic package is nice with the way the steering being heavier and sharper along with the dynamics. The petrol and diesel both are good to drive as well and just like all Ford cars traditionally, the EcoSport brings good dynamics to the table.
While in the compact SUV space the Venue got the vote for its turbo petrol and also having a DCT automatic, here in the midsize space the Seltos 1.4 turbo (140 bhp) is the best bet. You can get the Seltos 1.4 turbo with either a manual or the DCT and while you do not get paddle shifters, the gearbox is responsive plus the Seltos is tuned to be firmer and more fun over the slightly more comfort based Creta which is its sibling. Amongst other SUVs too the Seltos scores with its steering, handling and engine (1.4Turbo).
The T-Roc Is not an SUV as much as a fun to drive crossover with good ground clearance. T-Roc is a crossover and is designed to be a premium SUV for those who love driving. The lower height plus wide stance means that it corners very well while the superb 7-speed DSG automatic along with the 1.5TSI engine makes for a fast and involving driving experience. The T-Roc is the most fun SUV in terms of its small size and nimble handling along with the turbo petrol engine.
