With Ford giving its SUV a power boost, we look at other offerings in the club

Mahindra TUV300 T8 mHawk 100
Only the T8 trim of the TUV300 comes powered by Mahindra’s 100bhp-making mHawk engine. While all the TUV300s get the high ground clearance, the rectangular tank-like design, and the typical Mahindra grille, the ‘mHawk 100’ badge on the front fender sets this variant apart from the regular ones. It can also seat seven, unlike the usual five that is typical of cars in this category. `9.15 lakh (ex- showroom, Chennai). Details: mahindratuv300.com

Renault Duster Diesel 110 PS RXLDuster
The Duster’s 108bhp-making 1.5-litre diesel engine qualifies it for this list. Available in a six-speed manual and Renault’s Easy-R AMT, the Duster is a great car to drive off the tarmac. For a higher price, it can be optioned with four-wheel drive. The SUV-looks are further emphasised by the dual-winged front grille, gun metal finish alloy wheels, kayak roof rails and a ground clearance of 210mm. Rs 11.25 lakh (ex- showroom, Chennai).

Fiat Abarth Punto T-JetFiat Punto Abarth side strip
With the scorpion decal, a whole lot of red Abarth stickering and the Abarth badging on the front, the Punto has no trouble grabbing eyeballs on the road. Its four-pot 1.4-litre T-Jet petrol motor makes a whopping 140bhp. Its lowered ride height and stiffer suspension make it
a proper hot hatch, too. Rs 10.29 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai)
