How are their ratios any different related to price of the vehicle + tax?
Tanveer is correct. On CBU, manufacturers pay at least 60 % custom duties on the cheaper models like Wrangler whereas on CKD they pay 15-25% on the parts they import. GST remains similar.

It’s a fact that you can get a loaded X5 at a price lesser than a Rubicon here, don’t look at MRP of the Germans. It’s normal to get a Million Plus discount on most of their models.

It’s also true that most CBU models offers exclusivity, say if I have a budget of 70 lac, and I need something to stand out, Wrangler will be my choice irrespective of the price they sell elsewhere. But if someone finds BMW equal, there is no denying that he will get more car per car in an X5 over a Wrangler.

Wow I didn't realize you could get an X5/GLE etc around 70 - 80. In that case I would definitely agree that you're getting a lot more for that price. They're a whole segment above the Wrangler.

This also probably explains why the Macan is crazy expensive here when it would be similarly priced in other countries.

Don't know if they're a segment above but what I do know is these can't match the raw butch appeal of the Jeep. Those are more urban SUV/crossover kind. Depends on what one likes. I, for one, like butch appeal of Wrangler, Jimny, Thar, LR Defender, Hummer etc.
