The exponential boom of technology has encouraged automakers to merge several traits that previously could not be imagined together in one car. For instance, there was performance and fuel efficiency that could never be imagined to go hand in hand. We cut the sedan to reduce weight, in a run to improve fuel efficiency. While this considerably reduced the price, it also shunned anyone who sought a little bit of fun and thrill on tap. In the following ages, automakers evolved and managed to find the perfect blend of efficiency and performance. This birthed the hot-hatch segment that would then go on to become a scorer in a majority of sales charts.

Hence, here are a few of the 100+bhp cars that you can buy in India under Rs 10 lakh.

1) Tata Tiago JTP

The Tiago JTP emerged as one of the most potent iterations out of Tata’s stable. At the heart of it is a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 112 HP and 150 Nm of torque through a 5-speed automatic transmission. At a price of Rs 6.39 ex-showroom, the JTP is a worthy competitor in the segment.

2) Volkswagen Polo GT

The Polo defines the German’s idea of an ideal Pocket Rocket. The Polo GT is available in two engines: 1.2-litre TSI Petrol and 1.5-litre TDI Diesel. The former puts out a total of 103hp alongside 175 Nm of torque while the latter delivers 108hp with 250 Nm of torque.

3) Baleno RS
