In the last decade, car manufactures have tried to introduce products measuring less than 4 meters. An entirely new segment of Sub-compact SUV has emerged, what started by the Ford Ecosport mainly, now has over 10 cars to choose from! So why this sudden incline towards sub-4-meter cars? The Indian Government, with the aim to reduce congestion on roads, reduced the excise duty on cars measuring less than 4 meters in length and powered by petrol engines less than 1200cc or diesel engines less than 1500cc to 8%. This hard to ignore change led carmakers to enter the sub-4-meter segment.
