6 sedans with SUV-like ground clearance: Maruti Ciaz to Toyota Corolla Altis

In India, ground clearance is a very important aspect for cars as most people don’t want their beloved’s underbelly to be scratched by the pothole ridden roads. This is one of the most important reasons why compact and sub-4 meter SUVs are getting increasingly popular. While the road infrastructure has certainly improved in the past few years, cars with low ground clerance are still not preferred by most buyers for obvious reasons. For the same, many of the internationally sold cars are brought here with slightly improved ground clearance. On the same note, here are 6 sedans with SUV like ground clearance on sale in India.

Tata Tigor

Ground Clearance: 170 mm

Tata Tigor Facelift

Starting off the list is the Tata Tigor, one of the most affordable compact sedans in the market. The Tigor is based on the same platform as the Tiago and gets the same engine options too. Tata offers a more hardcore performance variant of the car too, sold under the JTP moniker. The Tigor comes with a ground clearance of 170 mm which is quite good for a compact sedan. Tata offers the Tigor with a 1.2-litre petrol engine that generates a maximum of 84 Bhp – 114 Nm along with a diesel engine that generates a maximum of 69 Bhp and 140 Nm.

Tata Zest

Ground Clearance: 175 mm

Next in line is another Tata vehicle, the Zest. It was launched much before the Tigor came into the market and sports a robust build quality. Its ground clearance is even better than the Tigor as the sedan stands tall at 175 mm make. This makes it the perfect vehicle to drive over broken roads without any worry. The Zest comes with both petrol and diesel engine options to choose from and starts from Rs. 5.72 lakhs, which is the ex-showroom (Delhi) price of the base XE petrol variant.

Ford Figo Aspire

Ground clearance: 174 mm

Ford launched the new updated model of the Aspire last year and it came with refreshed exteriors along with slightly updated interiors. Based on the Figo hatchback, it stands tall with a high ground clearance of 174 mm. This makes the Aspire with one of highest ground clearance in the segment. The compact sedan by Ford comes with three engine options – a 1.2-litre petrol, 1.5-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel engine, which are the same as available on the Ford Figo hatchback.

Maruti Ciaz

Ground Clearance: 170 mm

New Maruti Ciaz

The Ciaz can be said to be the first successful sedan by Maruti Suzuki in India after the Esteem. The Baleno sedan, Kizashi and SX4 failed to make a mark in the market and were discontinued in sone time. The Ciaz, however, is a different case and is among the top-selling sedans of its segment. The sedan is a looker too and comes with a ground clearance of 170 mm which enhances its practicality. Maruti recently launched a new 1.5-litre diesel engine with SHVS mild hybrid technology.

Fiat Linea

Ground Clearance: 185 mm

The Fiat Linea is a solidly built sedan that didn’t make it big in terms of sales despite being a solid offering in the segment. The current model, however, feels a bit dated compared to its rivals likes the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Honda City. Apart from being a fantastic car to drive, the Linea also comes with a great ground clearance of 185 mm. It gets a 1.4-litre petrol engine that produces a maximum of 112 Bhp and 207 Nm along with a 1.3-litre diesel unit that generates a maximum of 92 Bhp and 210 Nm. Fiat also offers a stonker of an engine with the Linea, which is a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol unit that churns out 123 Bhp and 207 Nm.

Toyota Corolla Altis

Ground Clearance: 175 mm

Toyota Corolla Altis Classy

The Toyota Corolla is one of the all-time best-selling cars in the world. The Corolla Altis sold in India too is the best selling D-segment sedan in India, though the recent launch of the new Honda Civic has snatched its shares. Apart from its comfortable rear seat, the Corolla Altis comes with a high ground clearance of 176 mm which makes it quite practical to use in the city. It was earlier being said that Toyota will bring the new updated version in the market soon but now it seems the company has other plans.
