Kia Sonet | Rs 6.71 lakh | The newest compact SUV in the market from the South Korea-based auto maker has been doing amazingly well in the Indian market.

With a decent amount of room for both the front as well as the rear passengers, the Seltos is a viable option for those looking to hit the road with the family every now and then.
Jeep Compass | Rs 16.49 lakh | The Jeep Compass is another contender to watch out for but, it does retail at a higher end of the price range. In terms of comfort and luxury however, it does rival the other cars in its segment very well.

Toyota Fortuner | Rs 28.66 lakh | More towards the bigger, full-size SUVs, the Fortuner packs in the ability to go offroad as well when the family isn’t around. Add to that the ability to travel in style and comfort with your family makes it a wholesome package.
Ford Endeavour | Rs 29.99 lakh | The Endeavour, like the Fortuner also offers the same package of capabilities without compromising on driving pleasure and comfort.
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga | Rs 7.59 lakh | The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga offers a decent amount of space for a 7-seater layout. It drives well, too, but the boot space could have been a little more. That said, roof rails are always an added feature to carry extra luggage.
Toyota Innova Crysta | Rs 16.26 lakh | The Toyota Innova Crysta is pretty much the gold standard when thinking of a long trip with the entire family. Available in both eight and seven-seater arrangements, the Crysta is a spacious MUV that has a surprisingly plush ride quality as well.
