When the car manufacturers saw a dip in their overall sales for the year 2019, Hyundai stood tall with only six percent degrowth. The company recently launched Venue with a competitive pricing and 7,000 units for the same have been delivered. The total sales combined for Hyundai Creta and Venue comes out at 16,103 units.
