This year, the hatchback segment is expected to see a number of launches, from mainstream models like the Suzuki Ignis to more premium offerings such as the VW Polo GTI and the new Mini Clubman.

Featured here are the hatchbacks – new and facelifted – expected to head to our shores soon.

MARUTI IGNIS

Here’s a simple formula: hatchback size, a beefy, jacked-up stance, and easy-on-the-wallet price tag. Sounds pretty interesting, right? The Renault Kwid did it first and the Datsun RediGo will soon. So, of course, the king of the small cars, Maruti, has something planned too. The Suzuki Ignis makes for an interesting compact crossover, heavily borrowing styling cues from its concept, the IK-4. Based on a new platform, the Ignis, upon its launch in India, will likely be powered by Maruti’s familiar 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre diesel powerplants.

Coming: End 2016
Est Price: Rs 4-5 lakh
Engine(s): 1.2 P, 1.3 D
