SUVs are presently the most favoured vehicles among Indian buyers. In order to mark strong presence in the growing SUV segment, every carmaker in India is attempting to add a SUV to their portfolio. While there are many sub-categories within this space, pricing plays an significant role in drawing a line inbetween the volume products and the premium vehicles. That said, the compact segment and the sub-four meter SUVs are more in request due to their affordable pricing, frugal engines and equipment level. Here we bring you a list of upcoming SUVs in India that will be priced inbetween Rs ten lakh to Rs fifteen lakh, slated to launch in the next two years.
1. Fresh Renault Duster
Very first launched in 2012, Duster was the very first successful model from Renault upon its comeback to India. The SUV loved pinnacle until fresh options were introduced in the market. In a bid to overpower fierce competition in the segment, Duster will soon see a generation switch. The fresh model is scheduled to make global debut at the two thousand seventeen Frankfurt Motor Showcase under Dacia badge. It is expected to be longer than the current model, which turns into spacious cabin. The SUV will receive comprehensive aesthetic updates and likely to take design inspiration from the Oroch lifestyle pickup that is retailed in Brazilian market.
One of the other prominent switches to be seen on the SUV is the 7-seat configuration. This would bring the SUV on par with 7-seater SUVs in India like Honda BR-V. It is to be noted that Duster will proceed to be available with 5-seat layout. There has been no confirmation from the company as far as the mechanicals are worried, but it is expected that Duster could use the 1.5-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines from the current model. For improved power output, the engines could be calibrated.

Coming to the engines, Mahindra S201 will derive power from the fresh 1.5-litre TGDI petrol engine which is being developed jointly by Mahindra and SsangYong. For diesel variants, Mahindra could use the mHAWK one hundred which also powers the NuvoSport and TUV300.

That said, the TUV500 will be based on the similar design as its smaller sibling save for the length and the larger third glass area. Just like TUV300, the design of the SUV will be based on a ‘battle tank’ with key design elements such as upright bonnet, large bumper, high ground clearance and raised shoulders reinforcing the butch look.
Inwards, the SUV will sport dual tone colour scheme and could feature forward-facing third row. Engine set-up could be different, as Mahindra could use the 122bhp, 1.99-litre unit from the Scorpio & XUV500, providing a miss to the 1.5-litre mHawk mill.
