It’s no secret, the segment that has been gaining popularity the fastest in India has to be the SUV segment. And as a result, there are many options to consider and they’re spread across categories. So after scratching our heads and things flying throughout the office, here’s what we have selected. Starting off with the Mahindra Marazzo. Now this MPV has been nothing short of impressive and is really, the first of the next stage of products that you can expect from Mahindra in the future. It offers a seating arrangement of 7 adults inside the cabin while still being able to have a price tag that undercuts all its rivals. Then there’s the Ford EcoSport which got a facelift this year with a design language that is more in tune with their global design theme. And along with this is it comes with one of the best infotainment systems and has many variants to offer that have a character of their own. And let’s not forget India’s best-selling compact SUV Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza that received a facelift as well. But more importantly, it now also offers the choice of an AMT transmission that fills in for what it needed all this while. And wrapping the list up is the Hyunda Creta which got a facelift that makes it look more premium and several interesting features like the electronically adjustable seats and wireless charging. And that makes up our list of the top 5 SUV/MPV picks of the year 2018.
