The best-selling SUVs list for May 2019 is out and we see Hyundai Creta topping the list. Check out the complete list here.
Among the best-selling SUVs between 10 Lakhs to Rs 20 Lakhs for May 2019, Hyundai Creta, Mahindra Scorpio and Tata Harrier are among the top models. The list includes 11 cars in total.
The gap between Hyundai Creta and Mahindra Scorpio is huge of around 5,700 units. Similarly, the gap between Scorpio and Harrier also goes up to 1700 units. Tata Harrier has received a good response since its launch earlier this year.
The possible reason for this could be the ever-increasing competition from SUVs under Rs 20 Lakhs. There are a plethora of SUVs to choose in this price range like Jeep Compass, Maruti S-Cross, Mahindra XUV500 and Nissan Kicks.
Nissan Kicks sales might have troubled the manufacturer, as it was hoping to get its sales bolstered. For the month of May 2019, it clocked barely 79 units. In its first month, Nissan sold around 1300 units of the Kicks.
We are sure that the sales of Kick will be up soon. Nissan also has the Terrano placed before Kicks, which has given better sales figures. For the past many months, Nissan has received a poor response from Terrano.
The other last ones on the list are the Renault Captur and Tata Safari. Renault Duster is placed below the Captur and is generating better sales. Safari is at the end of its lifecycle in India and caters to a completely different set of audience.
Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500 and Maruti S-Cross maintain their consistency. Compass has clocked 977 units, XUV500 at 1195 units and S-Cross at 1507 units.
However, this segment has suffered overall, seeing a 25% decrease overall. Last month, 19133 units of this segment were sold, whereas last year, the figures were at 25,502 units.
