SUVs are getting more and more popular around the world since some time now. They are known for their ability to travel through the toughest of terrains. Also, more and more manufacturers are now focusing on the on-road performance of these SUVs too since that’s where most of them are used for most of their lifetimes. So today, let’s take a look at the fastest accelerating SUVs in India that are priced under Rs 25 lakhs.

Hyundai Tucson

0-100 km/h – 9.4 seconds

The Tucson is the fastest accelerating SUV priced under Rs 25 lakhs in India. The Tucson was reintroduced into India in 2017 and is offered in both petrol and diesel guises.

The 2.0-litre turbo diesel Tucson is quite rapid and takes just 9.4 seconds to hit 100km/h from standstill. The engine cranks outs 182 Bhp and 400 Nm of torque and comes paired to either a 6-speed manual or an automatic gearbox.

Kia Seltos 1.4 Turbo DCT

0-100 km/h – 9.7 seconds

The recently launched Kia Seltos is the second-fastest SUV on this list. The compact SUV was launched last month in India and has since made its way to the top of sales charts. The 1.4 Turbo DCT variant of the Seltos has an official 0-100 time of 9.7 seconds, which is pretty quick. This version is powered by a 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine that churns out 140 Bhp of power along with 242 Nm of torque and comes mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed twin-clutch automatic gearbox.

Jeep Compass

0-100 km/h – 10.5 seconds

The Jeep Compass petrol is the third-fastest SUV on this list with a 0-110km/h time of 10.5 seconds. The Compass is powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine that produces 160 Bhp and 250 Nm of torque. The petrol Compass is offered with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. If you want quick acceleration, the automatic variant is the one to buy.

MG Hector

0-100 km/h – 10.73 seconds

Following the Jeep Compass is the MG Hector, an SUV that uses the same Fiat multijet engine that is used by the Compass. This big SUV was also launched this year and despite its heft, the Hector manages to do the 0-100 km/h in 10.73 seconds according to independent tests and reports. The 2.0-litre diesel engine here produces a maximum power of 170 Bhp and a peak torque of 350 Nm. MG Motors offers only a 6-speed transmission with this engine as of now.

Hyundai Creta

0-100 km/h – 10.8 seconds

The Hyundai Creta offers customers a mix of good looks and features along with performance and frugality. The Creta is offered with three engines – one petrol and two diesels. It is the larger 1.6-litre oil burner that achieved the 10.8 seconds 0-100km/h time when paired to the 6-speed manual gearbox. The Creta’s 1.6-litre diesel engine produces 126 Bhp and 265 Nm of torque and is also offered with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
