BMW 3 Series (2018)

It is a benchmark for comparing other luxury sedans in India.

As far as its design goes, it gets the classic BMW kidney grille. Pick the 3 Series if you want to be driven around on weekdays but want to take the wheel on the weekends. The diesel engine can be bought for just above 20 lakhs. The 3-series is one luxurious package you should look at in this price bracket.

It shares the powertrain with the Q3 SUV which is fitted with a 2.0-litre diesel. The former is the more popular option with output figures of 141 bhp and 320 Nm mated to a 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Audi-A4

Audi rolled out the first A4 on the Indian roads in 2008 and it hasn’t looked back since then, taking the throne for the best selling Audi car. One of the main reasons why consumers love the A4 is because Audi has striked the perfect balance between performance, design and comfort. Looks-wise, it’s sleek, sporty, and downright attractive. Performance wise, the 2016 Audi A4 can zoom from 0 to 100 kmph in just 8.5 seconds.

Volkswagen Tiguan

Volkswagen Tiguan

Priced at approximately 20 lakhs when bought used, the 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan stands tall as the flagship SUV (or SUVW, per Volkswagen’s terminology) in the German automaker’s lineup. When it was launched in 2019, critics often deemed the Volkswagen Tiguan overpriced. Nevertheless, a pre-worshipped model proves to be a smart investment. With its timeless design, robust build quality, ahead-of-time features, and durable yet luxurious interior, a used Tiguan outshines many present-day cars on road. You can drive home a 2019 model under 20 lakhs today!

There’s plenty of room in the cabin, comfort levels are very high with top-notch material quality all around.
