6 Cars under 20L with Big Audio Brand Badges

We all love hearing the bangers, be it Coldplay or Arijit. While we have our earphones for it, everyone vibing to music in a car is a different feeling altogether. And what is a road trip without some awesome music? It wouldn't be as fun if the base isn't thumpy and the vocals aren't clear. For your audio needs, here are the companies that cater to your audio needs in cars under 20 Lakhs. 

Mahindra XUV700 | Sony Corporation 

If we were to analyse the sheer number of speakers, no car in the list beats the XUV700. It has a " 3D" audio system with segment-first 12 speakers. Mahindra claims these speakers were developed in partnership with Sony Corporation. How much do you think the number of speakers most affect audio quality?

Tata Safari and Harrier | JBL 

Tata has a long-standing collaboration with JBL and Harmann for its audio needs. This is evident in its Premium SUVs, Harrier and Safari. They have a 10-speaker JBL-tuned setup, including five speakers and four tweeters. A subwoofer and amplifier also add to the sound quality.  

MG Hector & Hector Plus | Infinity

MG Hector is synonymous with car features. The speaker department is a strong part of that package. It gets an 8-speaker setup by Infinity. It has a subwoofer and amplifier, along with speakers and tweeters. You can control the music of these speakers from India's giant portrait infotainment screen, which is 14 inches. 

Jeep Compass | Uconnect

We can't complete a list of cars under 20 Lakhs without the Jeep Compass. The premium SUV has a 9-speaker Uconnect audio system, including a subwoofer and amplifier like the Hector. The high sound quality takes its luxury quotient to a new level.

Hyundai Creta and Alcazar | Bose

Hyundai is not behind with the high-selling Creta and its 7-seater version, Alcazar. They offer you a premium sound system from American audio giant Bose. The 8-speaker setup delivers sound from the front, rear and centre. Tweeters and a subwoofer aid them in it. 

Toyota Innova Hycross | JBL

It's time for the only MUV on the list. The Toyota Innova Hycross is the latest iteration of the long-trusted Innova lineup. Along with making it more SUV-like, Toyota has also fitted it with a JBL speaker setup. The 9-speaker system comes with a subwoofer to assist it.
