If you are in the market for an SUV priced under Rs 30 lakh, you might want to consider waiting after taking a look at this list:

The Tata Curvv is one of the most awaited launches of 2024, and will create a niche for itself in the compact SUV segment with its coupe styling. It is expected to be launched in the second half of 2024. Not just styling elements, but it will also share interior bits and features from the Nexon and Harrier SUV.

The expected features list includes a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a digital 10.25-inch driver's display, a wireless phone charger, cruise control, and ventilated front seats. In terms of safety, it will get six airbags, ABS with EBD, a 360-degree camera, electronic stability control, and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
