When driving on the road, several cars catch your eye, especially SUVs. SUVs have gained immense popularity and are in high demand. However, the main concern for many potential buyers is the high price of these vehicles. Recognizing this, companies have begun focusing on giving their cars an SUV-like look. A great example of this is the affordable Maruti S-Presso, which is available for only 5 lakh INR. People even refer to it as the Mini Scorpio. Recently, the company has introduced this car in a black color edition.
