The premium SUV is one of the most exciting segments in the Indian automotive scene. The Jeep recently forayed into this already crowded segment with their Compass and the attractive price tags surprised us. Volkswagen is in the game with Tiguan and Hyundai reintroduced their Tucson in an altogether new avatar. Tata has their capable Hexa and Mahindra was always confident with their popular XUV 500. We are ready for a quick comparison of these SUVs.
Jeep Compass: Jeep made us curious when they announced the Compass, they surprised us when they unveiled it and it literally made us drop our jaws when they finally announced the price. Jeep Compass is in the news everywhere. Jeep had a very sloppy start in India. The ‘ultra-hefty’ price tag of the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler Unlimited scared away the Jeep enthusiast. Now with the introduction of the Jeep Compass, all the lost excitement is back in the house.
Hyundai Tucson: Hyundai has done a lot of homework before reintroducing the new Tucson in India. This is clearly evident on the product. Also, the success of the Creta and the Santa Fe definitely has a rub-off effect on the Tucson.
Volkswagen Tiguan: The German automotive giant joined the party with their Tiguan. It may lack the intimidating looks of others in the segment, it is definitely a smart contender with trademark German-ness intact.
Tata Hexa: The vastly improved version of the Aria from Tata has lots of space, refined and more importantly has a premium feel. The car is priced quite aggressively and offer the most bang for the buck in this segment.
Mahindra XUV 500: One of the most successful SUV from the Mahindra stable. Acres of space, comfortable and feature rich interiors, powerful engine, and smart looks makes it a strong contender in the SUV segment.
