India is a proud nation when it comes to its traditional cultures & values; it has been a country of joint families. But cars that could accommodate these big families were less and far until the a trend of 6-seater cars took over the Indian Auto Industry post 2010.
There are many cars in the Indian market that are actually made to fit six passengers in the utmost comfort. Either it will be an MPV with captain seats, a small hatchback with two bench rows, or a luxury MPV with thrones for seats.
Majority of cars on sale in India are strictly 5-seaters, while the MPVs and few large SUVs offer a 6-7 seater configuration. But, there are few cars that are available with a 6-seater layout, with the middle row featuring two highly comfortable captain seats.
Six seater cars make immense sense for those who travel in the back seat but require more comfort than what is generally typical of bench seats that are available in the second row. Keeping this in mind, we have compiled a detailed list of top 6-seater cars in India along with their prices, mileage, dimensions and specifications.
Following are the six cars which are available with seating capacity for 6 passengers in India:
