This when compared to the same period in 2020, a market share drop of 2.7 per cent was noted. The Venue compact SUV finished on top of the sales table within the brand’s lineup as 10,554 units were sold against 8,828 units with 20 per cent YoY growth. The Creta midsize SUV ensured a total of 6,455 units as against 14,023 units in Oct 2020.
