If you want to decide as per the price of the car, then Mahindra XUV300 is the cheapest, followed by Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta.

But, as we all that it is not a good idea to filter as per the price or valuation of the vehicle.

Lower price also denotes a smaller car, which is very true for Mahindra XUV300. But, if you are looking for a large SUV, then MG Hector or Tata Harrier is best for you.

These two cars are even better in terms of engine displacement and power. But you will get a better mileage in Hyundai Creta as well as in Mahindra XUV300 for sure.

But still, we must say, Kia Seltos has strategically played the game and can also be termed as a winner as they have standard features and offer a sleek yet bolder look in their new SUV.
