Of all the models listed below, the MG Astor is the only car here to get a 10in+ screen as standard

Cars and technology have always been an envious combination and it only gets better with time. In recent years, the number of screens or the size of screens inside the cabin has also exploded, with 10-inch center screens becoming almost commonplace.

So we decided to compile a list of the top 10 models (in no specific order) that get 10-inch touchscreens under Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom):

1) Citroen C3

  • Citroën entered the mass market with the C3 sedan. Of all its features, the 10.2-inch touchscreen system is its most beloved and valued piece of equipment.

Kia Sonet touch screen

  • The Sonet is the only SUV under 4m to feature a 10+ inch touchscreen.

Volkswagen Virtus touch screen

Honorable mentions: Volkswagen’s compact sedan and SUV, respectively Virtus and Taigun, are also equipped with a screen of 10 inches and more. However, it is limited to the mid-range Highline and top-end Dynamic Line Topline versions of both models. Under the GT Line, Volkswagen offers it as standard on the Virtus and the Taigun. While their Skoda siblings, the Slavia and Kushaq, featured the same display units, they were recently downsized to an 8-inch display due to semiconductor shortages. That said, Skoda might choose to bring back the bigger unit in the future.
