    Cars And SUVs With Best Ground Clearance Under 10 Lakh

    by Mahesh Yadav on Saturday, Jul 03 2021

    If you’re looking to buy a car with high ground clearance and an ex-showroom price tag of under Rs. 10 lakh, then here’s what you can shortlist. We have grouped the cars based on their ground clearance specifications, and we have 11 groups in total, including 23 cars and covering a wide price band. So, you’ll find something relevant, no matter your budget. Even the car with the lowest ground clearance in this list has 180mm of it - enough to go over tall speed breakers or rough roads. In our opinion, 180mm is also the minimum ground clearance a car should have to enter the SUV club.

     

    Best Ground Clearance Under 10 Lakh

    Let’s start with the cars with cars having the lowest ground clearance.

    Group 1 - 180mm - 4 Cars

    The first group includes 4 cars - 1 from Maruti Suzuki Arena, 2 from Nexa and 1 from Mahindra. Let’s give you an overview of each of these four cars.

    Cars with 180mm Ground Clearance

    Maruti Suzuki Nexa S-Cross - 180mm

    The Maruti Suzuki’s Nexa S-Cross is a crossover with the silhouette of a hatchback. It may look like a hatchback, but it’s much longer than the Brezza. Perhaps its design kept the SCross from gaining mass acceptance. However, the 180mm of ground clearance makes it just as capable as most of the pseudo SUVs in this list and a compelling package for those who prefer an understated design.

    The SCross has a 1.5L hybrid engine with a 5-speed manual and 4-speed torque converter automatic and offers good fuel mileage. However, only 3 of its four variants make it to the sub-Rs. 10 lakh price list, and none of them has the automatic transmission.

    Maruti Suzuki Nexa Ignis - 180mm

    From Maruti Suzuki’s Nexa stable comes another car - the Ignis. No one calls it an SUV, and most people call it a hatchback, but in my opinion, the Ignis has more SUV design characteristics than the SCross. The Ignis offers a 1.2-litre normal petrol engine with a 5-speed manual and the option of a 5-speed AMT automatic in the top 3 of its 4 variants.

    Just like the S-Cross, the Ignis also offers 180mm of ground clearance. Out in the real world, the Ignis will do better when negotiating tall speed breakers. Its shorter wheelbase gives it much better breakover angles than the SCross.

    Maruti Suzuki Arena S-Presso - 180mm

    Sliding further down the price range, we have the Maruti Suzuki Arena’s S-Presso. This micro-SUV costs about as much as a budget hatchback but offers better road presence, visibility and above all, SUV-like ground clearance.

    Watch Video - Maruti Suzuki S-Presso Variants Explained?

    The S-Presso gets a 1.0-litre normal petrol engine with a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT automatic transmission. 3 of its variants are also available with CNG bi-fuel and manual transmission for those who drive a lot. The S-Presso perfectly bridges the price gap all the way up to the Ignis’ base price of about Rs. 5.0 lakh.

    Mahindra XUV300 - 180mm

    Among cars with 180mm ground clearance, the last one we have is the Mahindra XUV300. However, only 3 of its variants qualify for the sub-Rs. 10 lakh ex-showroom price criteria - 2 petrol-manual and 1 diesel-manual. The baby XUV’s turbo petrol and turbo diesel engines, both offer class-leading torque and excellent drivability. Although, it has the worst ground clearance among the sub-4m SUV rivals, which we will cover later in this article.

    Group 2 - 182mm - 1 Car

    The second group with 182mm ground clearance only has 1 car from Renault, and it’s an MPV.

    Cars with 182mm Ground clearance

    Renault Triber - 182mm

    The Renault Triber’s affordable price point, flexible seating options, a roomy cabin and a healthy 182mm ground clearance make it worth considering for those who want the flexibility of switching between 7 seats and 5 seats with a massive boot for less price than an “SUV”. It’s also available with an AMT automatic transmission for those who want 2-pedal driving convenience. The only thing to consider is its 1.0-litre normal petrol, which may not be adequate for frequently hauling 7 adults, especially in ghats and on expressways. However, for occasional use, it can certainly handle that job well enough to warrant serious consideration for the sheer value it offers.

    We have another Renault on this list with a bargain price tag, high-end styling and 2mm better ground clearance than the Triber.

    Renault Kwid - 184mm

    The Renault Kwid offers a big boot, stylish exteriors and a respectable ground clearance of 184mm. It is available with 2 normal petrol engines - a 0.8-litre and a 1.0-litre. While both get a 5-speed manual, only the bigger one comes with a 5-speed AMT automatic transmission.

    Know More - Renault Kwid Best Variant to Buy?

    The Kwid is a rare car that offers LED DRLs, double barrel headlamps and 14-inch wheels with 165-section tyres as standard even on the base variant. For the sake of buyers looking to put a lot of mileage on the odometer with a low cost per km, we wish it had the option of CNG in at least a couple of variants.

    Next, in our list, we have 2 cars with 185mm - the Maruti Suzuki Arena’ Ertiga and the Nexa XL6. Although these cars are mostly the same and share the platform, powertrains and several other parts, they are styled differently enough to appeal to different sets of buyers.

    The Redi-Go offers the same engine transmission options as the Renault Kwid - 0.8-litre petrol engine with 5-speed manual and 1.0-litre petrol engine with 5-speed manual and a 5-speed automatic. However, unlike the Kwid, the Datsun Redi-Go offers the driver more control with manual gear selection. The Redi-Go is also available in fewer variants. The bigger engine, for instance, is only available in the top variant.

It has a 1.2-litre normal petrol engine and a 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine. Neither of them is available with an automatic transmission.

    Group 7 - 190mm - 4 Cars

    Just like Group 1, Group 7 is also flooded with 4 cars. And just like the first group, 3 of these come from the same Korean family.

    Cars and SUVs with 190 mm ground clearance

    Ford Freestyle - 190mm

    Let’s start with the most affordable one in this group of 190mm ground clearance cars. The Ford Freestyle is a Ford Figo with a lift kit but make no mistake - it’s just as capable as any other sub-4m SUV. After all, they’re also monocoque frames with front-wheel drivetrains.  And the Freestyle is cheaper too. So, if you’re picking the EcoSport over the Freestyle, remember that you are paying a premium for the SUV style.

    Know More - Ford Freestyle Best Variant to Buy?

    All three variants of the Freestyle cost well under Rs. 10 lakh ex-showroom even with the diesel engine. And the prices range between Rs. 7.27 and 9.02 lakh. The Freestyle doesn’t have an automatic transmission with either of the engines. That may also hurt its chances of making it to some buyers’ shortlist.

    Hyundai Venue - 190mm

    Hyundai and Kia’s strength is the long list of engine-transmission combinations with almost all of their cars, and the Venue is no different. Even if you have a budget of only Rs. 10 lakh ex-showroom, you still have 5 options:

    • 1.2L petrol manual
    • 1.0L turbo petrol manual
    • 1.0L turbo petrol with auto clutch manual
    • 1.0L turbo petrol with dual-clutch automatic
    • 1.5L turbo diesel manual

    While all combinations are excellent in their own right, the auto-clutch manual transmission (ACMT) stands out from the rest. Paired with the turbo petrol engine, it makes driving in crawling traffic as easy as an automatic while still leaving room for engagement when you’re in the mood to row through the H-pattern shifter.

    The Creta also offers 190mm ground clearance, but with a budget as tight as Rs. 10 lakh, you have only 1 choice - the base E variant with the 1.5L petrol engine and a manual transmission. There aren’t many features here either, but the road presence, cabin space and the powerful motor does count for something.

With only 1 variant to choose from, there’s not much available in the name of choice from a car offering 7 unique engine-transmission options.

    Group 8 - 200mm - 3 Cars

    The 8th group has 3 cars with 200mm ground clearance - the Ford EcoSport, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and its rebadged version, Toyota Urban Cruiser.

    Ford EcoSport - 200mm

    The Ford EcoSport is the original sub-4m SUV trailblazer. The one that showed everyone that sub-4m SUVs could look good and have a mass appeal. The EcoSport was also the one to offer and promote its 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine long before turbo petrol engines were a thing. It also set the baseline of 200mm ground clearance for SUVs. Although, in recent years, many “SUVs” have failed to meet that criterion. Some carmakers still choose to respect it and have made it past Group 7.

    Maruti Suzuki Arena Vitara Brezza - 200mm

    The Maruti Suzuki Arena’s Vitara Brezza is the first to challenge the might of the EcoSport on its turf. Not only did the Brezza successfully overtake the EcoSport in sales figures, but it also did that with just the diesel engine in times when the diesel engines were being demonized. The Breza ditched its diesel engine for petrol with the facelift, and it’s still chugging along with just 1 engine option. However, the road to sales success isn’t as easy anymore as there are plenty of options in the sub-4m SUV space.

    Toyota Urban Cruiser - 200mm

    The Toyota Urban Cruiser is the (barely) reskinned version of the highly successful Vitara Brezza. The Urban Cruiser provides Toyota’s promise of a fuss-free ownership experience, while the Brezza is suitable for those who value a wide sales and service network. Together, the two are clocking decent sales numbers and holding their own in the face of stiff competition. Just like the Brezza, the Urban Cruiser also offers exceptional fuel efficiency of 18.76kmpl from its hybrid petrol engine despite having an ancient 4-speed torque converter automatic. However, with the manual transmission, the figure is about average at 17kmpl as it doesn’t get the hybrid tech.

    Group 9 - 205mm - 4 Cars

    Maruti Suzuki dominated the Group 1 of 180mm with 3 out of 4 cars. Korean sister companies Kia and Hyundai lead in Group 7 with 3 out of four cars offering a ground clearance of 190mm. Similarly, the Renault-Nissan leads this lot with 3 out of 4 cars.

    Cars and SUVs with 205 ground clearance

    Renault Duster - 205mm

    Renault Duster is the car that led the SUV and soft-roader trend in India long before it had picked up steam and it sold in significant numbers. That is until the competitors caught up. Now, it’s the oldest horse in the race, but its big dimensions, butch styling and high ground clearance still earn it the respect it deserves. The inflation over the last decade pushed its sticker price, but you can still get 1 petrol variant of the Duster for under Rs. 10 lakh.

    Renault Kiger - 205mm

    While one Renault SUV in this 205mm class is the oldest, the other is the newest. The Kiger is the latest addition to the list. Although it arrived after the Nissan Magnite, it packs more ammo than Magnite. Just like the Magnite, the Kiger also has a 1.0L normal and 1.0L turbo petrol engine. While the Magnite only offers CVT automatic with the turbo petrol engine, the Kiger offers an AMT automatic with the normal petrol engine too.

    Kia Sonet - 205mm

    The Sonet is Kia’s hottest commodity right now in the market, and for a good reason. Besides a high ground clearance of 205mm, it also offers a burly SUV silhouette, plenty of upmarket features and almost as many engine-transmission combinations. However, for the budget-conscious, only 7 variants are available for under Rs. 10 lakh.

    Group 10 - 209mm - 1 Car

    Now, we’re getting closer to the top of the ground clearance ladder, and here we have the Tata Nexon with 209mm clearance. One interesting fact you may not know is that the Nexon EV is a 205mm ground clearance - 4mm lower than the regular Nexon but still very respectable.

    Tata Nexon - 209mm

    The Tata Nexon not only sits near the top in this list, but it’s also literally at the top of its class of sub-4m SUVs with a spectacular 209mm clearance. While some of its variants breach the Rs. 10 lakh limit, you still have 11 options on the menu. On the powertrain side, you can pick between the 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine with the manual transmission, the 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine with AMT automatic and the 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine with a manual transmission without blowing through your Rs. 10 lakh (ex-showroom) budget.

    Group 11 - 210mm - 1 Car

    Finally, we have the Nissan Kicks. The king of ground clearance sits 210mm off the ground and beats the Nexon by 2mm to take the top spot.

    Nissan Kicks - 210mm

    While the Kicks shares its platform and powertrains with the tried and tested Renault Duster, it offers 5mm of additional ground clearance. Not unlike the Sonet, which offers 15mm better clearance than the Venue despite sharing its ‘soul’ with Hyundai.

    Know More - Nissan Kicks Best Variant to Buy?

    You can get the Kicks with a 1.5-litre normal petrol engine and a manual transmission, and a 1.3-litre turbo petrol engine and either a manual or a CVT automatic transmission. However, with a tighter price restriction of Rs. 10 lakh, we could squeeze only 2 of its variants into this list. And, both of them only offer the simpler 1.5-litre normal petrol engine with a manual transmission.
