KLM was the first to launch a crossover SUV Sportage between an undiscovered price scale of Rs4 million and Rs7 million. Before, the alternatives accessible for buyers in this value range included outstanding quality sedans, such as Honda Civic, while Toyota’s average SUV Fortuner was estimated at over Rs7 million.
