Hatchbacks are the most popular cars when it comes to overall body types. Due to the location of seating, some of them can feel a bit cramped up on the inside, however, this is not a general case. You get 15-inch/16-inch tyres on hatchbacks. Ingress and egress shouldn’t be a major problem. Recline is less, which can affect comfort level on longer trips. Boot space is less but is manageable. Hatchbacks are known for their ease of driving in the cities. They are generally the more value for money options. In Rs 7 lakh, you can get hatchbacks like Tata Tiago, Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, Hyundai Santro, Maruti Ignis and Maruti Celerio.
