Best Automatic SUV in India under 25 lakhs

1

The demand for automatics is on the rise as long commutes and horrible traffic are pushing car buyers to opt for the convenience of clutch free driving. This factor combined with our love for SUVs means there are quite a few automatic SUVs to choose from. With the Hyundai Creta’s automatic diesel variant commanding a waiting period of 10 months, demand is clearly very high. In the INR 13-25 lac price brand, there are 7 automatic SUVs to choose from so, quite obviously, the decision-making process isn’t exactly very easy. Which is where we step in as we tell you which of these is the best automatic SUV in India under 25 lakhs keeping all the necessary parameters in mind such as price, mileage, features, brand image, etc. Starting from number seven;

8. Mahindra Scorpio

Our list of the Best Automatic SUV under 25 lakhs kicks off with the Mahindra Scoprio. The Mahindra Scorpio comes in at the cheaper side of the automatic SUV spectrum. The Scorpio Automatic was launched last year and comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The new, thoroughly updated Scorpio comes loaded with features and is also one of the highest selling SUVs in India currently. What marks it down are slight quality niggles and an underwhelming driving experience.

7. Honda CR-V

Honda‘s original CR-V and the model that followed were decent performers in the market, but that was before other manufacturers flooded the market with diesel alternatives. The latest generation of the crossover is sold in India currently and although it is almost perfect as an urban runabout, it still lacks a diesel engine option which is clearly hurting sales and also pushes it down in our list of the best automatic SUV in india under 25 lakhs.

6. Hyundai Creta

Hyundai‘s latest offering, the Creta has been so well received that the current waiting period stretches from 6-10 months depending on the variant. The demand for the diesel automatic has also exceeded expectations. Although more expensive than the Scorpio AT, the Creta offers more refinement and better driving dynamics. The quality of interiors and overall fit and finish is also better. Plus, the Creta is backed by Hyundai’s stellar after sales support.

5. Ssangyong Rexton

Mahindra owned Ssangyong motors currently sell one SUV in India, the Rexton. This feature-packed SUV comes with 7 seats and is also cheaper than the Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, its chief rivals. The only real trouble with the Rexton is the brand image of Ssangyong in India.

4. Toyota Fortuner

This will, perhaps, not come as a surprise to most of you. The Fortuner is the highest selling in its segment by a huge margin and commands respect on the road like no other SUV. However, the SUV has started showing its age now and the new one has already been unveiled internationally. Another issue is the interior design which has been lifted straight off the much cheaper and now discontinued Innova. Even though the Fortuner in now pretty old it still remains one of the best automatic SUV in india under 25 lakhs.

3. Mitsubishi Pajero Sport

This butch looking SUV is currently the only product in Mitsubishi‘s portfolio in India. Arguably better than the Toyota Fortuner, the Pajero Sport has only one real drawback, which is the Mitsubishi-HM dealership and after sales network. It just doesn’t inspire as much confidence as Toyota which is part of the reason why the Fortuner has stayed ahead in terms of sales. Nevertheless, is a slightly better product than the Fortuner and gets much better interior design and quality. And it is slightly cheaper too.

2. Mahindra XUV500

Mahindra‘s XUV500 has been a very popular car since its launch and for good reason. It offers fantastic value for money when you take into account the space and number of features on offer. The Indian pulic seems to like the way it looks as well and at that particular price point there isn’t much else that makes as much sense as the XUV500.
