Hyundai Venue Prices Undercut Those Of Nexon, Vitara Brezza, Ecosport & XUV300

Hyundai Venue has become the new sales-leader in the compact SUV segment as it has overtaken the likes of Vitara Brezza, XUV300, Nexon, EcoSport in the popularity stakes

For many years, the Maruti Vitara Brezza remained at the top of the sales charts of the compact SUV segment, with no real threat from any of its rivals. Things, however, started changing with the arrival of the Hyundai Venue, which even managed to outsell the Brezza by a huge margin in July 2019.

Basically, the Venue sold 9,585 copies in July, while the Brezza could find only 5,302 buyers in the same time period. Last month, the Hyundai Venue managed to consolidate its position again as the segment-leader by registering a total sale of 9,342 units against 7,109 units of Maruti Brezza. This is definitely a huge number, especially if you consider that the likes of Nexon and XUV300 have pretty much failed to get anywhere close to the Brezza.
