Manufactures have adopted a strategy to launch 5-seater SUVs followed by their 6/7-seater options like Hector/Hector plus, Creta /Alcazar or Harrier/Safari. But will you spend more for a pair of extra seats?
Manufactures tend to give more features because of the premium price tag these bigger counterparts carry. Additionally, the seats increase the practicality; they can be used for passengers or can be folded down to increase boot space. On the downside, if you don’t have a big family, then the seats maybe folded most of the times. Also, the bigger size makes parking and city use cumbersome.
