The Fronx compact SUV coupe was the second most sold compact SUV in India last month.

It posted a total of 13,220 units while the Tata Nexon finished in the third position with a total of 12,349 units against 14,214 units with a YoY volume decline of 13 per cent. The facelifted Nexon will more likely launch in the coming months.
