The hotly-contested compact SUV segment has lately seen interesting action with new entrant climbing up to the top positions. In a surprising turn of events, the Hyundai Creta and Venue managed to outsell the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, which suffered a year-on-year decline of 63 per cent.

The convenience pallet includes keyless entry, and push-button start-stop via intelligent Key, and 'Lead Me to Car' features. However, compared to the higher variants, the XE misses out on an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, voice recognition, LED projector headlamps, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), 360-degree camera, side airbags, leather seats, dual-tone paint scheme, among others.
