In the Indian car market, hatchbacks have remained quite popular and here, we have listed the top five hatchbacks with maximum waiting time.
Demand for this specialty has grown significantly as a result of recent corporate scandals. Manufacturers are struggling to meet this, but due to production constraints (such as the global shortage of semiconductor chips), it is quite a struggle. As a result, many cars today have longer waiting times. Below, we have listed five hatchbacks for sale in India that have the longest official waiting period.
The waiting time is up to four months for the Tata Tiago manual petrol variant and up to five months for the automatic variant. For the i-CNG version of the Tata hatchback, you have to wait up to four months for delivery.
Maruti’s premium hatchback – Baleno – currently has a wait time of up to 4 months, depending on which variant is chosen. For the Toyota Glanzer revised version, the waiting period for the selected variant is up to two months. These two hatchbacks have recently made a big update in the Indian market.
As for the Hyundai i20 (N Line Performance Edition), the waiting period is up to three months, but only for the ‘1.2L petrol Asta (O)’ variant. For all other variants of Hyundai’s premium hatchback, buyers will have to wait one to two months to take delivery.
The Maruti Suzuki Alto is the most affordable model in the Indo-Japanese car maker lineup, and it enjoys extremely strong demand among new car buyers in India. For its petrol-only variant, the wait till delivery is about two months, while the S-CNG variants of the smaller Maruti hatchback want to wait up to three months.

Although the popularity of SUVs continues to grow, hatchbacks are still pulling in strong sales numbers. While most hatchbacks are budget-friendly, there are some options for those who want to spend big bucks, thus covering a large population. Also, hatchbacks are quite easy to operate, especially in bumper-to-bumper traffic, when compared to sedans and SUVs.
