Low Budget Cars And SUVs With Best Ground Clearance Under Rs. 6.0 Lakh
If you have to frequently ride over big speed breakers or rough roads, then you need a car with high ground clearance. We’ve curated a list of 6 cars that offer the best ground clearance and come with an ex-showroom price tag of under Rs. 6.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
1. Renault Kiger - 205mm
The Renault Kiger has the best ground clearance of 205mm among cars costing less than Rs. 6.0 lakh (ex-showroom). The Kiger has 4 powertrain options but only the base variant with the 1.0L normal petrol-manual costs less than Rs. 6.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
2. Nissan Magnite - 205mm
The Nissan Magnite shares its powertrain options and frame with the Renault Kiger. It also has the same 205mm ground clearance. And, just like the Kiger, only the base variant with the 1.0L normal petrol-manual costs less than Rs. 6.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
3. Renault Kwid - 184mm
The Kwid is another Renault car on this list with a respectable 184mm ground clearance. Besides a high clearance, the Kwid also has good styling and road presence, especially for the price. All of the Kwid’s variants cost less than Rs. 6.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
4. Renault Triber - 182mm
The Triber is the 3rd Renault car on this list and the only one with seating for 7. It has a 182mm ground clearance but when ferrying 7 adults, you should drive it carefully as the suspensions compress under load. The only notable problem with the Triber is its 1.0L normal petrol engine, which doesn’t have the performance to continuously haul 7 adults at expressway speeds without stressing the engine. We wish it had the option of 1.0L turbo petrol engine and CVT automatic transmission.
Only the Triber’s base variant costs under Rs. 6.0 lakh to help it reserve a spot on this list.
5. Maruti Nexa Ignis - 180mm
The Ignis is an unsung hero among affordable cars with high, 180mm ground clearance. Its tall-boy design makes ingress-egress easy even for tall occupants with a turban. Despite car prices running high these days, the Ignis seems to carry a reasonable price tag and offers good value for budget car buyers. 2 of its most affordable variants with the 1.2L normal petrol-manual powertrain cost less than Rs. 6.0 lakh.
6. Maruti Suzuki S-Presso - 180mm
The S-Presso is the most affordable car on this list of cars with high ground clearance. It has a fantastic mileage of around 25kmpl and all of its petrol-manual and petrol-automatic (AMT) variants meet the budget criteria of Rs. 6.0 lakh (ex-showroom). The S-Presso’s LXI CNG-manual makes it the only car with the CNG bi-fuel option on this list.
