The trend of SUVs just keeps on increasing. Everyone wants an SUV in their family because of the road presence it offers and because it can seat all of your family as it has 7 seats. However, not everyone can afford a new full-size SUV so many opt for a pre-owned one. Then there comes a problem of fuel efficiency. Big SUVs are very heavy due to which they are very fuel-thirsty. This the reason that most of the buyers opt for the diesel engine as it is more frugal, delivers decent fuel efficiency in the city and delivers a much better fuel efficiency on the highways. Finally, there is the task of driving such a big and bulky SUV in the city where you have to use the clutch very frequently and change the gears quite a lot. Because of the big capacity diesel engine, the clutch and the gear action becomes heavy which can make the driver tired. To avoid this people usually go for the automatic transmission. Here we have 3 seven-seater SUVs that come with a diesel engine and an automatic transmission that are currently on sale:-
