The Skoda Octavia has been recently launched at an ex-showroom price of Rs 25.9 lakhs. This translates to Rs 31 lakhs as an approximate on-road, Mumbai price. Buying a sedan this expensive will surely raise a question in your mind, whether should you buy this or go for another SUV? Here are 3 other SUVs that you should consider instead of Skoda Octavia.
Jeep compass is SUV that you can buy for the base price of Rs 20.43 lakhs. The top-end variant of the Jeep compass which comes with 4×4 costs Rs 34.83 lakhs. The Jeep Compass has a lot of changes that have happened in the 2021 facelift. The car is offered with two engine options one being a 1.4-litre petrol engine and a 2.0-litre diesel engine. This car being an SUV is easier to drive and feels much more muscular than the Skoda Octavia. It also gets a panoramic sunroof and the new infotainment system is quite good. It has a revised interior and exterior now, plus it is peppered with a whole array of new features.
The 2WD variant of the Mahindra Alturas G4 has priced at Rs 34.89 lakhs. The large footprint of the Mahindra Alturas translates into great space inside the car it also has good third-row seats where you can fit in a full-sized adult comfortably. The Mahindra Alturas also comes in a 4WD variant. This cost about Rs 38.48 lakhs but is a good option if you are interested in taking your vehicle on some bad roads.
Citroen C5 Aircross
While this is in its own right an expensive car. And buying one will require you to scout the scarce network of showrooms. The Citroen is premium brand and option for you if you want something unique and rare at the moment. The car starts at Rs 36 lakhs and goes up to Rs 38 lakhs (on-road, Mumbai). It has a really powerful engine, ride quality is superb and gets an array good features. Definitely worth a consideration.
The last SUV on this list is the Hyundai Tucson. You can buy the Hyundai Tucson with a petrol or a diesel engine. There is a 2WD or 4WD variant to choose from. The Hyundai Tucson is offered only with an automatic gearbox. At Rs 32.75 lakh the Tucson is a cheaper alternative to Skoda Octavia. The only downside here is that the luxury/brand value of the Hyundai brand is not as high as that of Skoda. The upside here is that you can get a diesel engine. You also get a panoramic sunroof which is missing on the Skoda Octavia.
