    Coming back to the vehicle from an Indian brand, this is Mahindra TUV300. This vehicle sits true to its SUV DNA. This means TUV300 is a conventional subcompact SUV and not just another so-called SUV (more like crossover). Hence the reason, it is a wise choice by the Indian police to include it in their fleets. TUV300 is used as a patrol vehicle by Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh police.

    The function of a potent MPV like Toyota Innova is simple, it does almost the same job as Maruti Suzuki Ertiga but at a different level. Where Ertiga is suitable for Patroling, Toyota Innova is used for highway Patrols. Innova is also a paramount choice for interceptors and also for pursuits. Also, Innova is common with Traffic police as it can easily fit the speed radar detectors at the back.
