With Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s time to make your mom feel special. What better way to do it than presenting her with a new set of wheels!
Looking to buy a car for your mother? We’ve listed five cars that would make for a perfect gift for your mom this Mother’s Day. To make matters convenient, they are all automatic cars and compact in size for her to be able to punt it around the city easily.
1. Maruti Suzuki Ignis AMT
The Maruti Suzuki Ignis is unique. Yes, it may look quirky to some because of its oddball exterior design, but it definitely grabs attention. Moreover, the Ignis is spacious, has a funky interior theme, comes with an automatic option with both the petrol and diesel engine. Best of all, there are countless personalisation options available that your mother can choose to reflect her taste. The Ignis AMT is available in Delta and Zeta variants. The seating position is relatively high and getting in and out is perfect for people of all heights. With a bit of personal touch that you can add to it, the Ignis can announce your arrival from a distance. Don’t women love such attention? We bet they do! The Ignis AMT with the 1.2-litre petrol engine will cost you Rs 5.74 lakh (Delta) and Rs 6.30 lakh (Zeta) while the 1.3-litre diesel costs about Rs 6.94 lakh (Delta) and Rs 7.46 lakh (Zeta) (all prices ex-showroom Delhi).
2. Honda Brio AT
The Brio hasn’t changed much since its launch, but that doesn’t make it look outdated. Like the Ignis, the Brio also comes equipped with a peppy 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder unit that makes 88PS of maximum power. The engine comes with a 5-speed torque converter which does the job well within the confines of the city. The Brio automatic will cost you Rs 6.82 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Yes, it does appear to be a bit on the higher side, especially for a car that hasn’t seen a lot of changes to its mechanicals and styling in the recent past. But we’re sure the Honda badge and the overall refinement levels make it a worthy purchase. It sits a little low, so it’s better to ask your mother to go for a spin in it before signing on the dotted line.
3. Volkswagen Polo GT TSI
The Volkswagen Polo GT TSI is a mean machine. It has a 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that dishes out 105PS of maximum power. The engine is powerful and refined, but the 7-speed DSG transmission it comes with makes the package divine. This car is quite quick compared to the hatchbacks listed above, and we’d recommend you to pick it only if your mom loves fast cars and has a serious need for speed. The Polo GT TSI is priced around Rs 9.30 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It may appear costly, but we’re sure your mom will appreciate the overall fit and finish, the DSG gearbox, the power and refinement levels.
4. Volvo V40
Ever since the Volvo V40 facelift donned the Thor’s Hammer headlamps, it’s become the new heartthrob of the luxury hatchback segment. Put everything aside and just focus on the way the V40 looks. Measuring 4,369mm in length, this car is not small by any standards (definitely longer than the Dzires and the Xcents). And it’s wide too, measuring 1,857mm in width and has got the road presence that your mother would want. If you were planning on upgrading your mother’s ride and enter the luxury league, do go for a short ride in Volvo’s entry-level hatchback before making a purchase. It costs Rs 26.04 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
5. MINI Cooper D
MINI is the first name that comes to mind when you talk about compact luxury hatchbacks. The entry-level 3-door Cooper D is compact, stylish, and has a 115PS diesel engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Cooper D, or any other MINI for that matter, makes a style statement of its own. This one gets only 2-doors (and a boot lid) but has a rear bench as well. There are numerous personalisation options as well to make it suit your taste. The Cooper D costs Rs 28.50 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
