SUVs are definitely riding the bigger waves in the car market not just in India, but around the globe. Some OEMs have also shifted their major focus from other segments (hatchback, sedan) to SUVs as these vehicles are bitting a bigger chunk of the market. In India, mid-sized SUVs have been ruling the roost as they offer a balance of everything - comfort, convenience, off-road skills etc. and are also offered at a relatively fairer price tag.
