SUV India Sports Utility Vehicles

Indian SUV has come a long way. Mitsubishi Pajero was one of the few Sports Utility Vehicles on the road until Tata decided to add a SUV as their flagship in the form of Tata Safari in the year 1998. SUVs with their off road capability and 4x4 or four wheel drive are still popular with women drivers and upward mobile population - despite the rising fuel bill. Often these big cars are used more on the road than off the roads. With 3 rows of seats and a tall stance on the highways, these SUVs make any long drives comfortable and safer. At least on the Indian roads, the massive size of a SUV and a higher visibility adds to sheer road presence.


Tata Safari as the dominant player in the Indian SUV class, comes with features found only in much higher class - Puddle Lamp, dual AC vents, power windows in all windows and some models sport rear view cameras.


Study this statistics from the National Highways Authority of India:
Indian Road Network is the second largest in the World with about 3,300,000 Km. (for those of us who are curious as to which country has the largest Road network - it is the USA with 6,370,031 Km. No surprise at this.)

National Highways - 66,590 Km
State Highways - 131,899 Km
Major District Roads - 467,763 Km
Rural and Other Road - 2,650,000 Km

What do all these figures tell you ?
Consider the fact that you have a lot of poorly laid roads still out there and you will be a lot better travelling in a SUV. Still in doubt ? Look at the Bapus and their gleaming Tata Safaris.
