Whether you are an Indian or not, SUVs are usually given much more importance than the usual sedans and hatch back cars. The difference is not only in the initial cost, but also the maintainance. Moreover SUVs are generally not preferred by most of the professional people, SUVs are liked by people who have high levels of adrenaline in their bodies. And remember that SUV owners with drivers are like those NASA scientists who were sitting and clapping for Neil Armstrong reaching the moon.
Now if you are sure that you should own a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), then simply have a look on these models: Mahindra Xylo, Mahindra Scorpio, Safari Dicor and Toyota Fortuner.
No doubt smoother edges are generally liked by people but Xylo has made a big blunder with huge size and smooth edges. Scorpio has been the only model by Mahindra, that has supported the company with considerable sales and profits. Tata Safari and Toyota Fortuner are the oldest and latest SUVs respectively in India.
As compared to other SUVs, Mahindra Xylo looks exactly like Maruti Suzuki Versa vs other hatch back cars. Xylo has been made for the king size families, but if you are one of those, then you can better go for Toyota Innova or Tavera.
The bottom line is – Safari should be your first preference, but if you are a fan of Mahindra (for whatever reason) then go for Scorpio and if money is not an issue then go for Fortuner. And for the extremely rich people who may not even read this article before buying their next SUV, I suggest Toyota Land Cruiser, BMW X5 and Audi Q5.
