The Tata Gravitas is yet another product which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2020 and by looking at the specification we strongly feel that gravitas SUV is surely a worthy contender on the upcoming 7-Seater SUVs Under Rs 20 Lakhs list as it will come equipped with some top of the line features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, LED DRLs, 6-way powered driver seat, an impressive 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, auto AC and a 9-speaker sound system.

On the Outside, the 2020 Mahindra Scorpio gets an all-new grille which helps the air-intake. As seen in the spy shots it also gets a new set of fog lamps, headlamps and a new curved bonnet for those who had difficulty over-looking the road.
Other additional features will include wireless phone charging capabilities, automatic climate control, new flat-bed steering wheel with compressive controls on it, and updated touch and feel surfaces to make the Scorpio look and feel premium which makes the new Scorpio a perfect package for 7-seater SUV under Rs 20 lakh.

Next up on the upcoming SUVs under Rs 20 lakh is the new XUV500 will support a more squarish design with flatter door panels which blends perfectly with the SUV’s silhouette. Other key elements on the car include its signature family size grille with slightly smaller headlamps placed vertically placed just beneath the DRL’s.
Talking about the inside, the dashboard of the XUV500 will resemble that of the Mahindra Funster which will include a fully-digital instrumental cluster positioned with a massive touchscreen infotainment system. We can also expect the XUV500 to come with a 3-row layout which seems to be quite impressive for an SUV under Rs 20 lakh.

Last on the list of upcoming 7-seater SUVs under Rs. 20 lakh is the Hyundai Creta 7-seater, after the immense success of the 5 seater Creta Hyundai seems to be planning something big as not too long ago spy shots of the 7-seater variant of the Creta SUV was spotted testing in broad daylight.
With its launch, this new Hyundai car will actively rival the likes of the upcoming MG Hector Plus and the Tata Gravitas. The new 7-seater premium SUV is likely to have a higher ground clearance and will be 30mm longer and will sit on a 20mm longer wheelbase if compared to the regular 5-seater variant.
