The most competitive car segment in India is the compact SUV segment. In this segment, there are almost all the players with their products aiming to grab a bit more market share than the other. In fact, some of the compact SUVs have been priced so aggressively that it is pulling the customers who had intended to buy a premium hatchback. At the same price, customers are opting for better practicality with a compact SUV. Let us see how the compact SUVs performed in terms of sales for the month of April 2021.
Hyundai Venue – 11,245 Units
The highest-selling compact SUV in the country is the Hyundai Venue. As a matter of fact, it has been wandering around the top spot consistently now for a long time. In April 2021, Hyundai sold over 11,200 units of the Venue in our market, compared to March, where it sold just over 10,700 units marking a modest 7% increase in sales month-on-month.

On the second spot, we have the popular compact SUV from Maruti Suzuki, the Vitara Brezza. In April, Maruti managed to sell over 11,200 units of the Brezza and the number was more or less similar in the month before as well. Hence, Brezza is able to maintain its position convincingly.
