Often filled with potholes and bumps, Indian roads aren’t the best stretches to cruise your beloved wheels. And while this is a fact that is very well understood by manufacturers, they do their best to offer best in class suspension setups that can face the Indian scenario. So here are 5 capable hatchbacks that can take on bad roads like a boss.
The golden hatchback from Tata Motors, the Altroz comes with a supremely well-tuned suspension set-up that seems to be tailor-made for the Indian roads. Capable enough to tackle bad stretches, the Altroz’s driving dynamics and handling is too good to ignore. In short, the Altroz surely sets a suspension benchmark.
Another supremely capable hatchback that comes with a brilliant suspension tune-up, the Freestyle achieves a blend of SUV dynamics and hatchback performance. Great ground clearance coupled with wider tyres makes the Figo cruise through pot holes and bumps like a boss. That’s not all, the Figo also scores high in handling as well.
An enthusiast’s paradise, the Volkswagen Polo has a legacy of superior handling and ride quality attached to its name. In fact, saying that the Polo has one of the best ride quality handling, and high-speed driving dynamics wouldn’t be an understatement. No matter what kind of road it is, the Polo can take it on, and that too at high speeds.
Maruti Suzuki Swift
While softer suspensions offer ample comfort, harder ones offer supreme performance. But if you are in the market for a balance, the Maruti Suzuki Swift is what you’re looking for. Creating a balance between comfort and performance, Swift’s suspension set-up complements its personality quite well, allowing users to cruise over pothole-ridden roads with confidence and pride.
Maruti Suzuki S-Presso
An unusual entry for many, the S-Presso gets a brilliant suspension set-up considering its price. With an added advantage of a raised stance, and an SUV inspired look, the S-Presso is the budgeted pseudo SUV. Not only bumps, but the S-Presso can also even take a little journey off the road!
