It is ‘new iPhone’ season. Every other September, Apple unveils a new iPhone which sees the price of the old one drop and existing customers rush to the showrooms to purchase the latest avatar. However, for the same Rs. 70,000, here are 10 cars you could rather buy and enjoy years of driving/modding.

Tata Nano

10 cars you could buy instead of the new apple iphone 7

Cheap to buy, run and maintain

Price: Rs 29,999

It is no surprise that the cheapest car available in the market is available in the used car market for such a cheap rate. Though the Nano wasn’t really successful when it came to numbers, the Nano is actually a very good car for the city. It has adequate space, tiny dimensions and a peppy 624 cc engine. The version we found was the base Standard version, selling for just Rs 29,999. Now, that’s cheaper than even the iPhone 6S.

Maruti 800

Reliable, easy to drive

Price: Rs 50,000

The Maruti 800 is one of the oldest hatchbacks in the market. The vehicle was available for more than 2 decades. The best part about the 800 is that it is extremely reliable, cheap to run and maintain and real fun to drive. This has certainly been a first car for many people and also holds sentimental value for them and hence it still has decent resale value. We found a 2004 model for Rs 50,000.

Maruti Zen

Fun to drive and high mod potential

Price: Rs 69,000

The Zen was the first fun hatchback that was introduced by Maruti. It came with a 1 liter 50 Bhp engine with more power, was more spacious and more fun to drive as well. In its time, it was also one of the first few driver oriented hatchbacks in the market. The biggest advantage of the Zen is the fact that it can easily swallow an Esteem engine or make do with a turbo charger making the car extremely mod friendly. We found a 2003 example for Rs 69,000.

Maruti Wagon R

For the family guy who needs space and practicality

Price: Rs 68,000

The Wagon R was the choice of those people who wanted a practical family car with a lot of space. Thanks to its tall boy design, it offers a lot of head room and Maruti also managed to extract a lot of room inside the cabin as well. Also, being a Maruti means reliability is not a problem and even if something does go wrong, parts are inexpensive. We found a 2005 Vxi model for Rs 68,000.

Tata Indica

10 cars you could buy instead of the new apple iphone 7

For the rear seat lover

Price: Rs 46,000

The Indica was Tata’s first attempt at a hatchback. The vehicle was so highly anticipated that Maruti cut prices of the Zen just a few hours before the launch of the Indica. They wanted to offer a large and spacious hatchback which was frugal and economical.

The Indica has been very popular in the cab segment. Why? Due to the large space at the back and the ride comfort. If you are looking for a chauffeur driven hatchback, this is the best bet. We found one for Rs 46,000.
