1. What is a MUV?

MUV stands for Multiple Utility Vehicle. MUV can be used interchangeably with MPV (Multi-purpose vehicle) and minivans in some countries. MPVs are widely known for its large people carrying capability. In the UK, vehicle types are referred to as people movers or people carrier. It is also the major attraction of the vehicle. With a large seating capacity, MPVs are particularly popular as a family car.

2. Why you should buy a MUV

High practicality

One of the major attraction of the MUV is its high functionality. The cars are designed with ambient cabin with three rows and a large space for loading luggage. However, MUV has to trade their looks for practicality. The design of MUVs is not to everyone’s liking. Its massive body makes the car look disproportionate and bulky. On the bring side, the huge body allows the car to offer huge space for loading stuff and carrying people. MUV is the preferred vehicle for outdoor enthusiasts since they can carry more camping gear.

Flexibility

One of the interior highlights of MUVs is high flexibility. The MUVs usually accommodate three rows. However, in most cars, the third and second-row consist of foldable and removable seats which allows the car users to extend the cargo space and load more stuff.

Comfort

While it is hard for the car manufacturers to come up with a design that can be considered appealing for most people, some carmakers start to shift the focus to provide interior comfort. Most of the MUVs in the market are armed with a long list of interior comfort features and techs. Thanks to carmakers’ generosity, passengers of MUVs can get the best driving experience.

What are the types of MUV?

In the automotive market, MUVs are not as popular as SUVs or hatchbacks. There are fewer options, therefore, there are also fewer sub-segments for the MUVs market. Usually, we can categorize MPVs in two days, based on the price range and sizes.

Based on the prices, MUVs segment can be divided into entry-level MUVs with lower price, standard MUVs and luxury MUVs. Considering the sizes, we will have small MPV or minivans and standard MUVs. Usually, small MPVs or minivans are also the most affordable vehicles of the space. In our market, there are some low-priced MPV options like Renault Triber, Datsun Go Plus and Maruti Eeco. On the other hand, the MUV markets also provide some high-end vehicles, for example, the Mercedes V-Class or Toyota Vellfire. Other standard vehicles of the segment which sit between the aforementioned options are Toyota Innova Crysta, Maruti Ertiga, Mahindra Marazzo and Maruti XL6.

What is the popular price range of MUV?

A standard MUV are priced from around Rs 8 lakh to Rs 20 lakh. Most vehicles in the MUV segment are priced within this price range. Here we have the Toyota Innova Crysta which is also the most best-selling MUV in the market. There are other popular options like Maruti Ertiga and Mahindra Marazzo that also are positioned in this price bracket.

The market also offers a few options for customers with a limited budget. Renault Triber or Datsun GO Plus are two affordable MUVs in our market. These cars only cost around the prices of a hatchback. Renault Triber, for example, is priced from Rs 5.12 lakh to Rs 7.34 lakh, which is a very budget-friendly price for a three-row vehicle.

There is also a niche market for luxury MUVs in our market with two offerings, Toyota Vellfire and Mercedes-Benz V-Class. These vehicles can cost above 70 lakhs.
