This is a sign of a maturing domestic market that carmakers are moving away from the old formula of making smaller and cheaper cars and are placing their bets on more aspirational segments. SUVs and MUV's are lifestyle products and providing lifestyle products, choices, are exactly what India moving towards. Indeed SUV sales rose 11 percent in the eight months between April and November last year from a year earlier, while the overall passenger car sales fell 4 percent.
