Thats the reason i preferred to stay away. BTW you will get all the info in any automag. The info alone would fill up 2 pages or even more!

SUVs below 30L:

1) Chevy captiva: 22-23 laks on-road

+ Spacious
+ Feature list in automatic variant
+ ride quality
+ cabin

- Gearshift
- GM's A.S.S

2) Ford Endeovour: 19-22 L


+ Street Presence
+ torquey 3.0 ltr engine
+ features

- no manual in 3.0 variant
- uncomfortable rear seat
- bumpy ride due to archaic leaf spring setup in rear

3) Honda CRV: 27-30 L

+ Interiors
+ Handling when compared to SUVs!
+ Honda's finesse!

- Only petrol engine
- hard ride
- Expensive for what it offers

4) Maruti Grand Vitara: 20-22 L

+ Decent off roader
+ Good VFM if you ignore maruti tag

- Bad FE
- only petrol engine
- low on features
- cabin similar to cheaper swift & SX4

5) Mitsubishi Outlander: 23 L

+ Impressive feature list
+ Spacious cabin

- No manual transmission
- No diesel engine
- Mitsu's A.S.S

6) Nissan X Trail: 27-32L

+ Awesome engine & gearbox
+ Great cabin
+ Spacious & comfortable seats

- Nissan's service network

7) Toyota Fortuner: 23 L

+ supremely reliable
+ performance
+ road presence

- interiors too much like innova
- no features
- bouncy ride

My pick is the Chevy Captiva.

+1 to Raj's compilation. That would be my reply too. But finally i prefer the Fortuner as Toyota's reliability is better compared to Chevy's though Fortuner does not have impressive features and interiors!
