While multiple hatchbacks and sedans are being launched every few months in the mid-range segment, the luxury segment is a tad different. There are more SUVs than sedans being introduced in the top-end. For the well-heeled and well-travelled, SUVs are the norm, more than cars. While till a few years back, limousines signified class, now SUVs are a more acceptable image for the ultra-rich, for the young and old alike.

In line with this, every year there are new models on the road. Here we list for you the 5 luxury SUVs ruling the roost in India, with a price tag less than Rs 1 cr.

 

BMW X5

The Audi Q7 has probably been the highest selling SUV in this segment for over a decade now. The new Q7 is a sleeker, more stylish version of the old one. With a view to be more fuel-efficient, it has also been made smaller. With a high performing engine, classy yet modern interiors, good ground clearance and spacious boot space, it’s no wonder the roguish charm of the Q7 has continued to steal hearts.

Mercedes GLS

The GLS, like all Mercedes launches, has a regal look and is in the S class of SUVs. Bigger in size than most of its rivals, its sheer size and muscular look command respect on the road. A high-resolution display, 360-degree camera and an online entertainment system make long drives pleasurable. The larger size translates to more space inside, with bigger leg room and huge luggage space, making it one of the more plush SUVs.

 

Range Rover Evoque

The Evoque is arguably the most successful model from Range Rover in India. It is one of the most chosen SUVs in this segment and one look at it will explain why. Sophisticated British exteriors and uber-luxury interiors with premium leather trims remind you of a James Bond movie. Ergonomically designed controls, a power-packed engine and Land Rover’s trademark terrain response system make it a driver’s delight.

 

Volvo XC 90

The XC90 was launched after exhaustive R&D and it shows in the model. While its large in size and has the standard features you would expect from an SUV in this segment, the small but significant add-ons are what make it different. A clean-air filter that purifies the air entering the car is highly relevant in India. Be it the assistive features that help the driver, the Sensus system that seamlessly integrate with Apple and Android devices or the touch screen controls, the thoughtfully design is what makes this car a treat to drive.
