  • The Jeep Meridian uses a 2-litre diesel engine making 170PS and 350Nm, with the choice of a 6-speed manual and a 9-speed automatic. It is the second most affordable option in the segment after the Mahindra Alturas G4, in terms of both the base trim and the top-spec 4X4 variant.

  • The Alturas G4 is offered with a 2.2-litre diesel mated to a 7-speed automatic, making 180PS and 420Nm. It is available in two trims, one with a 4x2 drivetrain and the other with a 4x4 drivetrain. It is the most affordable 4x4 option by over Rs 5 lakh.

  • The Toyota Fortuner is the only one here offered with both petrol and diesel engines. Its 2.7-litre petrol engine makes 166PS and 245Nm, while the 2.8-litre diesel unit puts out 204PS and 500Nm. Both are available with 6-speed manual and automatic transmissions. The 4x4 option is limited to the diesel engine only, but offered with both manual and automatic options.

  • The entry-level Meridian is more affordable than the petrol variant of the Toyota Fortuner. The top-spec diesel-automatic 4x4 Fortuner is the most expensive model here. It has even pricier options in the form of the Legender and the newly introduced GR-S variant which nears the Rs 50 lakh mark.

  • MG offers the Gloster with a diesel-automatic powertrain only, using a 2-litre diesel engine mated to an 8-speed AT. While the Super and Smart are offered with the base engine tuned to 163PS/375NM, the next two trims feature the twin-turbo engine producing 218PS/480Nm. 

  • The Gloster is the only one here that is available with a 6-seater configuration with captain seats in the middle row.

  • The Isuzu mu-X is an odd one in this segment with its dated styling and a relatively bare feature list. Offered in a single trim with a 1.9-litre diesel engine mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox making 163PS/360Nm. It does get a 4x4 variant too. It has the highest entry price and the top variant is priced similar to the competition.

  • The Skoda Kodiaq is a petrol-only offering, the only one on this list. While it is officially sold out for 2022, you could still book one. It gets a 2-litre turbo-petrol with AWD, mated to a 7-speed DSG (dual-clutch automatic) and making 190PS. Its AWD system is not quite the same as the 4x4 drivetrains offered by the Meridian and Fortuner which are more capable off-road. 

  • Apart from the mu-X, all SUVs listed above are somewhat evenly matched in terms of comfort. However, the Meridian and Gloster are a step ahead inside with their larger touchscreen infotainment systems, panoramic sunroofs and connected car tech.

  • While the Meridian has a more premium digital instrument cluster and better off-roading capabilities, the Gloster has an advantage of ADAS like adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist.
