The C-SUV segment is quite popular in India. This segment is led by none other than the Hyundai Creta. Many cars have tried taking on the Creta, but with limited success. However, the recently launched Grand Vitara could take on the Creta. The strong points of Grand Vitara are its hybrid setup and features.
