For carmakers in India, it is always a challenge to make a good car with all the convenient features, space and at the same time keeping the costs in check. While the rear seat comfort is the most important, boot space in cars is one of the key factors that help a customer to narrow down on its final car purchase decision. In India, the sub-4-meter rule is also applicable and right from hatchbacks to SUVs feature products that are less than 4000 mm but offer good boot capacity. Increasingly, the rear seats of most of the cars can now be folded to increase the storage capacity as and when required.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno is the best hatch with the largest boot space of 339 litres in its segment. This is more than the likes of the Hyundai i20 and Fiat Punto. Renault Kwid also offers generous 300L of boot space and is the second best in the segment and is even better than cars with a segment above.
