    Amongst all the C-segment SUVs, Nissan Kicks has the best ground clearance, so it is the best car to drive on uneven roads. Renault Duster has the biggest boot in the segment, so it can carry maximum luggage. Despite its age, the Duster comes across as a competent car, at least in terms of dimensions. It can still hold its own against the rivals with its widest body, longest wheelbase and the biggest boot space.
