Default Take a look at this analysis

Hi,

Take a look a this analysis of SUV performances; its only a start up kit but contains enough baseline information to help you in the evaluation. Also one can keep adding evaluation criteria for more SUV's as they deem fit.

Hope it is of use
Cheers
Ram

He understands that the Endeavour has a terrible middle row and back seat but cannot wait for the Fortuner.

There is no point what so ever to wait for a Fortuner. Toyota has delayed its plan to launch and I do believe that there would be further delays in their plans.
I agree. I too have been waiting for the fortuner for eons now.

If he can up his budget by about 5 lakhs X-Trail is an option too.
X-Trail might not be a bad option to explore. The only consideration would be lack of service.

Endy has 3 row seating and is high off the ground, but the seat to floor relationship is lower than Captiva.

Endy is built of an ancient truck frame whereas the Captiva is a unibody.

AFAIK, CRV and outlander are more of less the same 'space wise'
CR-V / Outlanded must be ruled out due to extensive ruinning and enormous fuel costs. He will take a look at the Captiva again but he is concerned that it won't be able to take a beating like the Endy.

Thanks for the input.
