Indian car buyers love SUVs. Given the pitiable conditions most of our roads are in, and also the fact that most SUVs offer a really commanding view of the road, which gets useful while making your way through the eternally traffic-infested roads, SUVs do end up making a lot of sense. The sheer practicality of a SUV is just too hard to ignore. What’s even better is the fact that SUVs now stand at par with comparable sedans in terms of refinement, passenger comfort and features. If you’re in the market to get yourself a reasonably priced SUV then there are quite a handful options you have to choose from. Here’s a list of Best SUV in India 2017 for details of the top SUVs from every segment of the mainstream market.

Easily the best SUV in India in the Rs 7-9 lakh bracket, the Maruti Vitara Brezza is a good all-rounder that is currently the only SUV in India’s largest car maker’s stable.

Basically, the V-Max isn’t a SUV but a twin cab Pick-up. However, in India, it’s being promoted as a lifestyle offering that offers all that a typical SUV does along with a large loading area owing to the pick-up credentials. The V-Cross looks really macho, so much that we want one for its looks alone! Powering it is a 2.5-litre Turbo Diesel engine. There’s also a 4WD, which makes the V-Cross pretty capable off the road.

  1. you got allergy with mahindra’s. best and one of the most stunning SUV is SCORPIO

  2. Well, I think your analysis seems to be a little faulty. BRV definitely makes it to among the best in 2017 especially if you count pure failures like Tata Hexa and “nothing new eco sport”. Take a test drive of BRV. It may not beat the best in its class for a “wow” but it is maintaining its Honda class.

  3. But how can we compare 8 lakhs and 30 lakh Vehicle .

    If so then brezza engine is quite old .

    And sub 4 meter , is it SUV.
