So let`s get moving. First in the list is the kia Seltos.

Transmission6-speed MT, 6 & 7-speed automatic

The Kia Seltos needs no introduction. The Korean carmaker hit the bulls eye with the Seltos. Launched in August 2019 the SUV has notched total sales of 81,784. The Seltos is available at a starting price of 9.8 lakhs (ex-showroom). Engine options include a 1.4 litre GDI turbo petrol, 1.5 litre petrol (naturally aspirated) and 1.5 litre diesel engine. Apart from its stylish looks, and feature rich cabin, the eye catchy Kia Seltos Colours continue to woo buyers to Kia showrooms.

Hyundai Creta

Fuel Economy17-21 km/l combined

The updated BS6 Hyundai Creta was launched in March 2020. The Creta continues to be a strong contender for Hyundai in the mid-sized SUV space. Available with both petrol and diesel engines, it is a reliable work horse and delivers good performance. The top end variants are loaded with the latest features and come with Hyundai`s connected car technology.

Tata Nexon

Ex-Showroom PriceRs. 7.19 lakh
Fuel Economy 17-21.5 km/l combined
Dimensions3,993 mm L X 1,811 mm W X 1,606 H
Engine1.2 L turbo petrol , 1.5 L diesel
Transmission6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic

The Nexon is a damn good product from Tata Motors. Based on the company`s new design philosophy, the compact SUV comes equipped with petrol and diesel power-trains. The build quality of the Nexon is something one can vouch for as the car has received a 5-star crash test safety rating by Global NCAP.

Maruti Vitara Brezza

Ex-Showroom PriceRs. 7.51 lakhs
Fuel Economy21.7 km/l
Dimensions3,995 mm L X 1790 mm W X 1,640 mm H
Engine1.5 L 4-cylinder petrol
Transmission4-speed automatic, 5-speed manual

Being a Maruti product the Brezza is a sales champion and is a reliable product and gets its basics right. It is available with a single 1.5 L petrol hybrid motor. The wide spread Maruti service network is also a boon and it is also low on maintenance. Even though the company has updated the compact SUV, it looks quite dated when compared to the competition.

Hyundai Venue

Ex-Showroom PriceRs. 6.92 lakhs
Fuel Economy17-23 km/l combined
Dimensions3,995 mm L X 1770 mm W X 1,590 mm H
Engine 1.0 L 3-cylinder, 1.2 L 4-cylinder, 1.5 L 4-cylinder diesel
Transmission5 & 6 speed manual, 7-speed automatic

Winner of the Indian car of the year 2020, Hyundai Venue is available with petrol and diesel engines. It comes with a host of safety features and Hyundai`s Blue Link connected car technology. You also have the option to choose the Venue in 11 variants which is a big plus point.
