We are giving you the list of 10 best SUV cars in India in new and used car markets in order to simplify your search for the best deals.

There’s no doubt that SUVs and crossovers have been a global trend and the SUVs segment in India has been growing at an incredible speed. For many domestic car buyers, buying an SUV is something more preferable than owning a hatchback or sedan, as it reflects a greater street presence, more powerful ride and handling and likely a stronger status symbol. So what are the best SUV cars to buy in India in recent days? Based on our personal evaluation and experts’ reviews, we compiled a list of 10 best SUV cars in India that you can buy in either new or used car markets.

10 Best SUV Cars To Buy In India 

1. Maruti Vitara Brezza

Starting off the list of 10 best SUV cars in India is the Maruti Vitara Brezza- the king of the compact SUV segment. Has been a runaway success of Maruti Suzuki for long, the Vitara Brezza is undoubtedly an absolute stunner. The highest selling SUV gets only a 1.3-litre diesel engine under the hood but it is still good enough to make the car an instant hit.

This mill is capable of putting out 90 PS of max power and 200 Nm of peak torque and can be mated to either a 5-speed MT or an AMT option. It’s not hard to understand why the Maruti Vitara Brezza is a great success since it has an attractive set of features, staggering ARAI-rated fuel mileage, good space, cost-effective price sticker and most of all, a Maruti’s badge. These reasons also explain why the sub-four-metre SUV is so popular in the second-hand cars segment.

   Maruti Vitara Brezza Prices In India
 City  Ex-showroom Price  On-road price
 New Delhi  Rs 7.67 - 10.42 Lakh  Rs 8.75 - 12.55 Lakh

Compared to the earlier Maruti Vitara Brezza sibling, the Maruti Ignis turns out to be less attractive. However, its quirky-looking design and peppy engines still help the Ignis garner a loyal set of followers over the times. The Maruti Ignis is essentially a 5-seater B1-segment hatchback, but its crossover-ish styling design makes it stand in line with the compact sport utility vehicles.

Powering the Maruti Ignis is a potent 1.2-litre K-series gasoline engine that is offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox and an automated manual transmission as an option. The car also impresses us with an attractive price bracket along with low maintenance cost.

With its five-star safety rating awarded by Global NCAP crash test, the Tata Nexon is the safest made-in-India car ever, which becomes a definite motivation for the domestic customers coming toward Tata’s dealerships.

The Tata Nexon is powered by two peppy engine options, including a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel unit.

5. Hyundai Creta

The Hyundai Creta not only makes it to our list of Best SUV cars in India but is also among the best cars in its price segment. The flagship SUV from the South Korean carmaker, Hyundai Creta has been among the best-sellers for quite some time now. In fact, it has fared against its competitors aggressively and topped on the SUV sale charts from month to month. The reasons behind the Creta’s success story should be its powerful 1.6-litre gasoline and diesel engines delivering a corporate mix of fuel economy and high performance.

With the recent model launches of many companies in the SUV segment, Hyundai is gearing up for the next-gen Creta due to enter the market in 2020. And the older-gen Creta should be, of course, one of the most sought-after options in the used cars division.

9. Jeep Compass

Next on our list of best SUV cars in India is the Jeep Compass. The premium SUV came in the days when the outgoing products by Jeep did not manage to ring the cash counters as much as what the company initially hoped for. Jeep cars were capable, without doubts, but their prices seem a big barrier preventing buyers to Jeep’s showrooms.

People wanted a more affordable Jeep car and the Compass was exactly that. With a robust Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre oil burner producing a decent output of 170 BHP and 350 Nm, ARAI-certified fuel efficiency of 17.1 kmpl and a pretty premium features package, the Compass has utterly turned on the charm around Jeep in the Indian space.
