Here are the five most popular videos that feature comparisons of SUVs from Autocar India’s YouTube channel.


According to the Society of Indian Automobile Manufactures (SIAM), one out of every four vehicles sold in India is an SUV, which means that the body style accounts for 25 percent of India’s passenger car market share. As we know Indians love SUVs and there are myriad options to choose from, we help to resolve any confusion and choose the best ones for you.

1. Force Gurkha Explorer vs Mahindra Thar CRDe – 3,38,856 views

Our most popular SUV comparison was all about the rough stuff. The Force Gurkha, with 80hp and 230Nm of torque, may seem underpowered compared to the Mahindra Thar (107hp and 247Nm of peak torque), but does that make the latter a better SUV? Our comparison video set out to answer that question by testing them on and off the road.

2. Hyundai Tucson vs Volkswagen Tiguan – 2,16,789 views

Volkswagen came out with a new SUV, seeking to peg it against small German luxury SUVs like the X1 and GLA. However, seeing as the VW badge did not carry the same cache as the more premium carmakers, we brought the Tiguan head-to-head with the Hyundai Tucson, which is a much closer rival, in our comparison video.

3. BMW X3 vs Audi Q5 vs Volvo XC60 vs Mercedes-Benz GLC vs Land Rover Discovery Sport – 2,11,219 views

The midsize luxury SUV segment in India is surprisingly competitive with plenty of options to choose from. With the launch of the new Volvo XC60 and Mercedes-Benz GLC, choosing between the competition had become even more difficult. We conducted one of our most extensive and thorough comparisons to see which model came out on top.

4. Volvo XC40 vs BMX X1 vs Audi Q3 – 1,75,795 views

Popular small German SUVs saw a new contender knocking on the doors of this segment. The all-new Volvo XC40 was good looking and well-equipped, but was it enough to beat its more established rivals? Watch our video to find out.

5. Mercedes-Benz E-class All-Terrain vs Volvo V90 Cross Country – 74,461 views

Mercedes came out with the all-new E-class All-Terrain, a standard E-class with more rugged, SUV-like styling and add-ons to compete with the Volvo V90 Cross Country. Until the Mercedes arrived, the Volvo was the only car available in this segment. Find out whether the Mercedes was a proper alternative or not with our video.
