6. Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder
The Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder shares its underpinnings and powertrain options with the new Grand Vitara but offers a more aggressive styling that falls in line with the brand’s global SUV styling.
The Hyryder is also based on the Global C-Platform as the Grand Vitara and boasts strong dynamics and an extensive features list. The brand recently announced a detailed price list of the hybrid variants of the new Urban Cruiser Hyryder and is likely to announce the full price list soon.
7. Mahindra Scorpio N
While it’s been a while since Mahindra launched the new Scorpio N in India, the deliveries are yet to begin in the country. The Scorpio is not only one of the most affordable 4X4 SUVs in the country, but also offers a premium cabin and a strong exterior styling.
The Scorpio N is being offered with both petrol as well as diesel engine options and will be sold alongside the Scorpio Classic in India.
