So if you are thinking of upgrading your garage and have a decent amount of money then this is the list for you. Here are the 7 best car garages you can have under 15 lakhs.
Hyundai Venue & Maruti Suzuki WagonR (Best of both worlds)
Want Hyundai’s comfort and features with Maruti Suzuki’s efficiency and practicality? Look no further. The Hyundai Venue and the Maruti Suzuki WagonR is one of the best combinations for getting the best of both worlds.

Kia Sonet & Maruti Suzuki Ignis (SUV gang)
The Kia Seltos is one of the hottest compact SUVs on the market. The Venue’s Korean cousin gets the same set of engines and similar features. However, we suggest you buy the 1.5 HTE variant for the Sonet as it will give your garage a blend of petrol and diesel.
