So, if you are eyeing a car, then here are the 5 best SUVs to buy this Diwali.
Maruti Suzuki is the largest car manufacturer in India and has one of the best Indian SUVs under their belt. With the BS6 norms in place, Maruti Suzuki gave this stunning SUV a powerful petrol engine replacing the bestseller, Diesel Brezza!

The all-new-Vitara Brezza and Urban Cruiser now come with a 1.5L K-series petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 103 bhp@6000rpm and a peak torque 138Nm@4400rpm. The Brezza also offers options between manual and automatic transmission.
Tata Nexon is one of the best cars offered in the Indian passenger car market. In 2018, the car got a 5-star safety rating from Global NCAP, which gave it the title of “Safest car of the year.” Post this title, Nexon created a buzz and made its presence felt. Tata Nexon volumes averaged close to 6000 units in 3 months last festive season, and with its popularity still rising; those numbers are surely going to increase further. Offered with a 1.2L turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5L turbocharged Diesel engine, you get choices between manual and automatic (AMT) transmission as well. The Nexon EV is the highest-selling electric car in India, and it’s definitely something to think about if you are looking for a car with future technology.
