While SUVs have been selling pretty well, even crossovers, which are, essentially, hatchback on stilts, have been seeing increased demand. These cars make great sense, especially if you prefer having a vehicle that has the boldness of an SUV but the poise and dynamics of a hatchback. Here are as many as 10 crossover cars in India that you can choose from –
The Renault Kwid is a Maruti Alto rival that looks like a mini-Kwid. It offers bold looks, a spacious interior and sufficiently powerful engine options and appears to be a mini Duster. The high ground clearance is clearly the USP of this vehicle, while the optional AMT makes it a gem on the congested city streets.
The Datsun Redi-GO shares its platform with the Kwid and offers similar traits. All this means you get typical SUVish looks along with high ground clearance and a high seating position for the driver. The Redi-GO shares its engines and transmission options with the Kwid and offers similar mileage and performance figures. However, it is slightly cheaper than the Kwid, which makes it excellent value for money.
The latest offering from Maruti Suzuki is a Kwid-rivalling crossover that looks like a proper ‘mini SUV’. The S-Presso comes with a 1.0-litre petrol engine that is available with both petrol and automatic transmission options. The budget-end offering also comes with a rugged look and has a massive ground clearance of 180 mm.
The NRG is nothing but the cross-hatch version of the Tiago, the cheapest offering from Tata Motors. The Tiago NRG has a more rugged look than the regular Tiago, which is courtesy of a bold body cladding and a dual-tone paint scheme. It also has a sportier interior due to all-black plastics.
The Ignis is a B1-segment cross-hatch that is available with a 1.2-litre petrol engine. Transmission options include manual and AMT units. The small car is well priced and is fairly easy to maintain. It is based on the HEARTECT platform and comes with a sufficient number of features in the top-spec trim.

The Ford Freestyle is a Figo-based cross-hatch that benefits from all the traits of the Figo but offers additional ruggedness owing to the higher stance and some new styling bits. It also offers some additional features like the SYNC3 touchscreen infotainment unit.
The Honda WR-V is based on the Jazz but is significantly more popular than its hatchback sister due to additional features like a sunroof and black plastic cladding. It even has a higher street presence due to more butch styling.
The Renault Captur is a premium crossover based on an updated version of the Duster’s platform. It even shares its engines with the Duster but has a more sophisticated look. It also comes with more features, but misses out on automatic transmission options and AWD.
The Maruti S-Cross is the most expensive product in its carmaker’s lineup. The crossover comes with the Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre Diesel engine and offers great high-speed dynamics. It also offers a good ride and has a considerably spacious cabin.
