Delhi : Despite the fact that Indian automobile buyers are increasingly favouring SUVs, hatchbacks are still the best option for many. Hatchbacks can be easily manoeuvred in traffic, are moderately practical, and affordable. They frequently have excellent fuel efficiency since they are so light. In the near future, manufacturers want to provide some intriguing alternatives to tempt such consumers.

1. Next-generation Maruti Swift

The next-generation Swift will likely be released in India by the middle of the following year, according to Maruti Suzuki. The hatchback is already in development, and its parent firm, Suzuki, is testing it out on the road for foreign markets. A number of new features will be included in the incoming Maruti Swift of the next generation, which will have more muscular design. It is anticipated to run on a powerful hybrid engine that provides bright

2. Maruti Baleno 1.0 BoosterJet

The Indo-Japanese automaker is also anticipated to quickly offer the Baleno hatchback with a turbo-petrol engine option. Of course, this will be the 99 horsepower 1.0L BoosterJet powerplant that also drives the Fronx. A sporty body package, a new front grille, new colour choices, etc., might be added to the Baleno BoosterJet in addition to the engine. It's conceivable that the technology and equipment won't change.

3. Hyundai i20 Facelift

The redesigned hatchback, which was recently launched by South Korean automaker Hyundai for the European market, is likely to soon arrive in India. Along with new features like ADAS, the vehicle will get a redesigned external look. There will still be two engine choices: a 1.2-liter NA petrol engine with 82 horsepower and a 1.0-liter turbo-petrol engine with 118 horsepower.

4. Tata Tiago EV Blitz

One of the next vehicles from Tata Motors, which is actively growing its EV selection on the domestic market, is the Tiago.ev Blitz. This year's Auto Expo featured the Blitz Edition, which differs from the Tiago.ev ordinary model in terms of aesthetics. These changes include a dynamic body kit, patterns on the seat fabric, and piano black alloy wheels. It receives no mechanical modifications, though; it is powered by a 24 kWh battery connected to a 74 horsepower engine, with an ARAI-stated operating range of 315 km.

5. Tata Altroz Racer

The performance version of the Altroz hatchback was one of the most thrilling revelations at the 2023 Auto Expo. A 1.2-liter turbo-petrol engine with 118 horsepower and a 5-speed gearbox were used to power the "Altroz Racer" vehicle. A 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an electric sunroof with voice recognition, six airbags, ventilated seats, and other goodies were also displayed. We're not sure which features will be included in the final product, but we're keeping our fingers crossed.
