SUVs have become the go-to body type in the country for cars. From compact SUVs to full-size ones all are in demand. With so many options, a buyer can get confused. What if you are looking for an SUV to drive on the highways? It’s not like you cannot drive all SUVs on highways, but some are better suited considering safety and other aspects. In today’s article, let’s talk about 5 SUVs for Indian highways.
The first car on our list is the Tata Nexon. The Nexon is one SUV that has gained massive popularity in the last few years. So why is Nexon good for the highways? It has to be its reliable 1.2-litre turbo petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine that offer a good mix of power and efficiency. Safety-wise, the Nexon is a 5-star rated car so now worries in this aspect. In terms of features, it comes with 7-inch infotainment, ventilated seats and an electric sunroof.
Maruti Grand Vitara
Maruti’s new SUV also makes our list. The Grand Vitara looks quite modern with a stylish front facia, but what’s under the hood matters the most on highways. The Grand Vitara comes with a strong hybrid setup that offers great mileage in the city and can also deliver great performance on the highways. You can also consider the 1.5-litre mild hybrid unit, but that lacks performance. Feature-wise, you have a heads-up display, 360-degree camera, 9.0-inch infotainment and digital instrument cluster.
SUVs for Indian highways – Tata Safari
Tata recently updated the Safari with some new features including ADAS that would be quite beneficial on highways. Other than that, the Safari comes with an aggressive design. Performance-wise, you don’t have to worry about the 2.0-litre diesel engine running the show. This engine comes with manual and automatic gearbox options. Suspension-wise, the Safari munches miles with ease. Feature-wise, Safari comes with a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch infotainment system, a powered driver seat etc.
The Mahindra XUV700 is another 7-seater option you can consider for highway driving. The XUV700 comes with 2.0-litre petrol and a 2.2-litre diesel engine paired with a manual and an automatic gearbox. We also have ADAS on the XUV700 ideal for highway drives. In terms of features, the XUV700 comes with a 10.25-inch infotainment system, digital instrument cluster, panoramic sunroof, wireless charging, electronic parking brake etc.
SUVs for Indian highways – MG Hector
The last car on the list is the MG Hector. MG recently launched the new Hector with an updated design and features. In terms of features, MG added a 14-inch infotainment system, a new digital instrument cluster, wireless charging and more. But the best new feature has to be ADAS. Other than that, the Hector comes with a 1.5-litre turbo petrol and a 2.0-litre diesel engine. The petrol lacks a bit of performance but would be still sufficient for cruising on highways.
