In terms of interior space, Hummer H3 offers space for 3. It has a decent amount of space and offers space for four passengers to sit comfortably. It is an old vehicle and offers decent amount of features. Although, this SUV would easily cost you over 50 lakh in India, it is not a luxury SUV. The owner of this SUV had customised the interiors to give it a premium feel. It is still a utilitarian vehicle that can clear any obstacle that comes in front of it.

The seating position is quite high which gives her a commanding position and good view of the road ahead.
