Maruti Vitara Brezza: The Brezza ticks the basics of punch, practicality and peace of mind. If you can bear the ridiculously long waiting periods, you’ll end up with a compact-SUV that won’t let you complain. But, in all probability, so will everybody else.
Ford EcoSport: The EcoSport is back with a vengeance. It looks like a small SUV (and not a big hatch), packs in a healthy amount of kit right from the base variant and has potent motors under the hood. And it’s got tons of swag too. Deal?
Honda WR-V>: There’s more to the WR-V than being a Jazz on steroids. While it retains the hatchback’s basics of space and functionality, it brings in the added advantage of a high ground clearance. It also gets a sunroof. Doesn’t everyone want a sunroof in their lives?
Tata Nexon: Among the best vehicles to roll out of a Tata factory, the Nexon comes very close to acing the compact-SUV game. The funky styling, big 350-litre boot and some segment-firsts like an activity key make it a formidable force in the segment.
Hyundai Venue: The Venue is the latest entrant into the subcompact SUV arena. And, as we've come to expect from Hyundai, it's interiors are plush, the top variants are packed with features and what's more it's priced attractively too. There's even a 9-speed dual clutch automatic on offer as well as new Blue Link connected car features. Oh yes, it looks quite nice too.
