Looking for a 7-seat SUV within a budget of Rs 40 lakh

Looking for an SUV that is fun to drive, has a peppy engine, is spacious and comes with an automatic gearbox.

I am looking for a seven-seat SUV and my priorities are that it should be fun to drive, have good steering feedback, a peppy engine and an auto gearbox. It should also be spacious enough for a family and have good boot space as well. My budget is Rs 40 lakh, but I can stretch it up to Rs 75 lakh if the model is really worth it. Currently, I drive an Audi Q3. It’s a good car with a gem of an engine and gearbox, but its light steering kills the fun.

For your budget, the only seven-seaters are body-on-frame SUVs like the Fortuner, Endeavour, Alturas and now the MG Gloster. For sheer power, there is nothing to beat the Fortuner, though the Gloster is better overall, offering much more space, a superb steering and a huge boot. All these cars will fit your Rs 40 lakh budget. There are no other seven-seat SUVs in the Rs 75 lakh bracket. Premium and spacious seven-seat SUVs like the BMW X7 and Mercedes GLS will cost upwards of a crore.
