Will you believe us if we say that you can have the option of owning a comfortable, convenient and safe SUV without costing a bomb on your pocket? No, we are not talking about any end of season sale, discount offers or asking you buy a second hand SUV. All thanks to the introduction of sub-compact SUV segment in India, it is now possible to buy a feature loaded SUV at the price of any popular mid-sized sedan in India.
What is a Sub-Compact SUV?
Sub-Compact SUV is also known as Mini-SUV or sub-compact crossover, which is a class of small sports utility vehicles that are smaller than a compact SUV. The Compact SUVs are not only smaller in size but much cheaper than the regular big-SUVs. However, this doesn’t mean that the sub-compact SUVs are under-powered or lack in terms of features, safety, comfort or convenience. Rather, they are quite peppy to drive in the heavy city traffic as well as highways.
Is it better than a SUV?
Well, if your budget is quite less, a sub-compact SUV can be a perfect option to buy. For example, if you are willing to buy a top-end variant of mid-sized sedan like Honda City or Hyundai Verna, the same price can get you the comfort, safety, features and convenience of a SUV. For Rs.10 or 11 lakhs, you can easily get a popular and best-selling compact-SUV like Hyundai Creta, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport or even the best variant of Tata Nexon. These sub-compact SUVs are definitely far better than the mid-sized sedan you wanted to buy.
Sub-Compact SUVs in India
It is a well-known fact that subcompact SUVs are in trend, and they have eaten a large chunk of market owned by premium hatchbacks and mid-sized sedans. As the demand for subcompact-SUVs is on the rise in country, car manufacturers are leaving no stones unturned to attract new car buyers with their latest offerings in this segment, making new rivals.
It all started with the launch of Ford EcoSport, and later the segment was revolutionized with the launch of Hyundai Creta, which made other car makers to launch a product in this segment as soon as possible. And then, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon and Honda BR-V joined the party to cash benefits in this segment. However, this segment is stilled ruled by Hyundai Creta, which according to us is probably the best sub-compact SUV in India.
Tata Nexon – King of Sub-Compact SUVs with Best Mileage
The Tata Nexon is already a successful Tata product on the Indian roads with a class apart design and looks. Some of you even might confuse between the looks of Tata Nexon and Ford Ecosport, when it comes to its amazing sporty exteriors.
It also enjoys a waiting period of over 2 months, which proves that Indians have welcomed this car without any complaints. Also, it has consistently been amongst the best selling sub-compact SUVs in India.
According to Autoportal.com, the Tata Nexon with its super-refined 1.5 L Diesel engine returns an amazing average of 23.97 kilometers, which defined it as one of the finest SUVs with best mileage. With a starting price tag of Rs.9.44 lacs (ex-showroom, New Delhi), this SUV is capable to offer you an ultimate SUV experience without any compromise.
