People are considering MPVs and SUVs for their practicality. Here are 5 of them coming soon in the Indian market.
MPVs and SUVs have become quite popular around the world. This is mainly due to the practicality, on-road presence and high ground clearance that most of these vehicles offer. Three-row vehicles have spacious space at least for the front two rows. The 3rd row seat can also be used if the journey is short or if it is a long trip, children can use it. Here are 5 7-seater models that will be launched in the Indian market.

Toyota Innova has had great success in the Indian market. This is most people’s favorite MPV when they are about to buy a new 7-seater. The new version of the MPV will be called the Innova Hycross and is expected to launch before the end of this year. It will sit on top of the current Innova Crysta. Toyota has made some significant changes such as using a monocoque chassis, front-wheel drive and it will only be offered with a gasoline engine.
