If you have to single out one segment in the Indian automotive scene that has grown tremendously, it has to be the SUV market, and more specifically, the Compact SUV market. So what is a compact SUV? Well, an SUV with only 5 seats and length close to 4-metres can be termed as a compact SUV, though, this definition might not hold true in some of the cases.
While almost half of the 2017 is gone, the real fun will start now, in the second half of 2017 when manufacturers will launch their compact SUVs in the market, given the upcoming festive season, and year ending discount. We have compiled a list of 5 such interesting upcoming SUVs that you should look out for in 2017.
