Nowadays as the standard of living of the people is on a increasing scale most of them who own two wheelers are switching to four wheelers due to many reasons. This paper mainly focuses on identifying the various unique selling propositions that a customer keeps in mind while buying an entry level hatchback car like Maruti Suzuki Alto, Hyundai Eon and Renault Kwid. A questionnaire was prepared and distributed among the people to collect relevant data. The data obtained from the questionnaires were later analyzed using Multi-Dimensional Scaling (MDS) technique. For this particular study in order to interpret the data ALSCAL Multi-Dimensional Scaling (MDS) was used. The perception mapping was done at the end of the study which typically explains about what people think of these cars in the entry segment.
