You must have noticed that Compact SUV are getting popular among the buyers now and the demand for compact SUVs is at an all-time high. 

So what is the reason? Why are these compact SUVs getting so popular?

Well, there are several reasons such as the high seating position, which allows the driver to get a good look at the road ahead.

It also gives them good visibility so that they can easily make their way through congested roads/streets. The high ground clearance helps them to easily drive on the pothole roads, which are common in India.

Now even though SUVs are small in size, they make up for the size with their excellent features like sunroofs, dual-zone, HVAC, automatic transmission, turbocharged petrol engines, flexible seating options, and whatnot!

SUVs are really pocket friendly, contain the best features, have great looks, and are worth spending every buck on.

Here are some of the top SUVs in India that you can choose from.
