3. Honda Amaze

Price: Amaze S CVT Diesel 8.51 Lakh, Amaze V CVT Diesel 9.11 Lakh

Bidding our goodbyes for the SUV segment, here we will come to the realm of sedans. In 2018, one of the most noteworthy moves of the year is the launch of the all-new Honda Amaze, which has been a big hit for the Japanese manufacturer. The second-gen Amaze is better in every aspect. And the best part of this revolution is that it has now come with a CTV option for the diesel engine which was not available on the first-gen models. In fact, it is actually the first car in the segment to offer this particular engine-gearbox option.

The diesel CTV version could produce up to 80PS and 160Nm. But unfortunately, the diesel automatic option is not offered on the top-spec variants, which means that the diesel-automatic will not get some awesome features like the cruise control, touchscreen infotainment system and rear-view camera.

4. Maruti Suzuki DZire

Price: 7.93 lakh - 9.45 Lakh

The compact Dzire could be considered as the sedan version of the Swift hatchback. Debuted in 2008, the DZire has been in the business for about a decade. After three major generation overhaul, the DZire has become most good-looking than ever. Besides, it also has evolved into a smaller car to fit in the segment of compact sedans, which is different from the original full-size sedan Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire.
