Cars for the modern Indian nuclear family must take into account everyone’s needs. They need to be sleek and powerful for the career-oriented adult, offer plenty of legroom for the overenthusiastic kids, have enough trunk space for all that luggage and sports kits, and also offer great mileage. The most popular car category in the country, hatchbacks have been a favourite amongst families for a very long time. Here are some of the best hatchback options for a family of four in the country today.

Tata Tiago

The Tata Tiago is best known for its incredibly spacious interiors. It is compact but also has plenty of boot space as well as legroom. The body has a capacity of 240 litres, making very efficient use of space.  It’s got a great infotainment system as well, and will definitely keep the kids entertained. It has a mileage of 27.28 kilometres per litre in the diesel engine and 23.84 kilometres per litre for the petrol engine.

Maruti Swift

A classic, the Maruti Swift has been a family favourite for generations. In an all-new and upgraded avatar, the Swift is guaranteed to make heads turn in 2019. The safety assurances are top tier, with double front airbags, ISOFIX child seat anchors and ABS with EBD. Broader and higher than previous models, the new Swift has an unforgettable presence. It has a boot space of 316 litres, and a 22 kilometres per litre petrol engine mileage, and 28.4 kilometres per litre for diesel.

Maruti Baleno

The Baleno hatchback is a premium car, and it embodies elegance and power. It has a sporty all-black interior, with ample cabin space. It has plenty of boot space, at 339 litres. With a touchscreen music system, it allows for navigation, rear parking camera and sensors. It is on the more expensive side, which makes it a great option to buy used cars. With a mileage of 21.4 kilometres per litre for the petrol engine and 27.39 kilometres per litre for diesel, this is a serious contender in the hatchback market.

Renault Kwid

The Renault Kwid has a great presence, thanks to the flared wheel arches and the strength it projects. It offers plenty of cabin room and has a very sophisticated black trim with chrome inserts. It has a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a digital instrument cluster, and a one-touch lane change indicator. The Renault Kwid is classy and efficient, making it a great family car.

For the urban family, hatchbacks offer the kind of flexibility larger cars may not. They fit easily into tight parking spots, offer a clean elegant design that is appropriate for all events, and have enough space to store large luggage requirements. The higher-end models offer power and great mileage that works well for long road trips.
