5 vehicles with digital instrument clusters for less than Rs. 12 lakh
There is one feature that is gradually becoming standard among all the fancy features offered with budget cars these days. That is a completely digital instrument cluster. We’ve selected the top five cars under Rs. 12 lakh that come with a digital driver’s display.
The Venue comes standard with a fully digital instrument cluster, as well as an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, ambient lighting, an electric sunroof, six airbags, a tyre pressure monitor, and a powered driver seat.
The engines in the Venue are 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol, 1.0-litre turbo petrol, and 1.5-litre diesel. The Hyundai Venue competes with vehicles such as the Tata Nexon, Maruti Brezza, Nissan Magnite, and Kia Sonet.
The 2023 Nexon gets a 10.2-inch fully digital instrument cluster. It has three dial modes, as well as integrated maps and a slew of other vehicle services. The digital screen, however, is only available on the Fearless and Fearless trims.Nexon also has a 10.2-inch infotainment system, a two-spoke steering wheel with an illuminated logo, ventilated front seats, and a new aircon panel.
The Kiger’s cabin features a seven-inch color TFT screen. The Kiger is available in RXZ trims and includes
an Arkamys sound system, a wireless charger, automatic climate control, a cooled glovebox, ambient lighting, and electrically adjustable ORVMs. The Nissan Magnite, its DNA sibling, also has a similarly sized instrument cluster.
Citroen C3 Aircross
The C3 Aircross, Citroen’s recently launched SUV, gets a seven-inch digital instrument cluster across all variants. It is larger than the entry-level C3 and features coloured dials. The C3 Aircross is available in three trim levels: You, Plus, and Max, and is powered by a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine. It produces 109bhp and 190Nm of torque and is paired with a six-speed manual transmission.
The digital instrument cluster on the Exter and the Venue is the same. While the Venue starts at nearly 8
lakh (ex-showroom), the Exter starts at a much lower Rs. 6 lakh (ex-showroom). It has an eight-inch display and three drive modes: Eco, Normal, and Sport.
