1. Watch: The Quint’s Pick Of The Top 5 Hatchbacks of 2015

The hatchbacks in India can outnumber the population of many countries.

It is no secret that hatchbacks are dearly loved in the country, perhaps because of their small size, ease of manoeuvrability or simply because they provide better mileage.

With almost every automaker offering a hatchback, the race to be the best has many competitors. We took a look at them and have come up with a list of the best hatchbacks to hit the Indian roads in 2015.

Coming up with this list was a difficult task and choosing one of these cars over the other was even more difficult. So for the sake of ranking logic, we chose to list them by their popularity.

Cars around the world are built for different purposes like inter-city travel, off-roading and high fuel efficiency. Some of them are performance oriented, and frankly, they are the best ones.

There are plenty of cars which are fast, but fail to offer an exciting driving experience and that is what differentiates the wannabe performance cars from the real performing ones.

These cars are light, zippy and mind-bending fast, and a lot of them made their way to India in 2015. We bring you a list of the best ones and unable to choose a favourite from this lot, we decided to go in no particular order. Check out the entire list here.

3. Top 5 Luxury Sedans of 2015: Audi, BMW and Also a Volkswagen!

Indian roads are filled with all kinds of cars, the majority of which are hatchbacks. But this year, we saw a tremendous growth in one particular automobile segment – luxury sedans.

A car that offers good mileage is not good enough anymore. It should also offer comfort, safety, luxury and should come fitted with the latest technology.

In order to cope with these demands, almost every automaker in the country has a luxury sedan available in their line-up of cars, making it difficult to differentiate between the good, the bad and the ugly.

But we’ve got you covered. Here are the top five luxury sedans to hit Indian roads this year, in no particular order. 2015 saw of lot of these, check them out here.


4. Top 5 Motorcycles of 2015: Ducati, Yamaha, Honda and Mahindra

Ever wondered why a dog sticks his head out while being driven around in a car? Ask a biker.

The experience of having the wind hit your face and the power to zip past people driving around in four-doored cabins can’t really be explained, only felt.

The cars on the Indian roads can outnumber the population of many countries, but what challenges the number of cars is the number of bikes.

Given the condition of the roads and frustrating traffic jams, two-wheelers are the perfect choice. There are many that boast of giving a few kilometres per litre extra as compared to other bikes in their segment, but there are a few that offer pure motorcycling experience.

We bring you a list of the best ones to hit the Indian roads this year, and being unable to choose a favourite, we decided to go in no particular order. Check out our top 5 motorcycles of the year 2015 here.


5. Top 5 Compact SUVs of 2015: Creta, TUV300, S-Cross and More

It’s always great to get more than what you paid for, and compact SUVs ensure just that. They offer the comfort and luxury of a sedan for the price of a high-end hatchback, with the build of an off-roader.

These cars offer a little bit of everything and that is why they are widely accepted and loved in India. This segment has become crowded lately, with almost every car manufacturer putting out a compact SUV. So we put together a list of the ones that created waves for all the right reasons this year.

With so many good offerings, it was difficult to choose one car over the other, so the list is in no particular order. Read the list here.
