So here are 7 of the most loved cars in India, that have zero haters.
Maruti Suzuki Alto

When it comes to hatchbacks, the Ford Figo is one of the best hatchbacks when it comes to driving dynamics and manoeuvrability. An iconic vehicle for Ford in India, the Figo arrived back in 2010, the Figo became a great success thanks to its lower kerb weight and super stable drive.
