Hyundai Creta was the topmost midsize SUV in the country in CY 2021 with 1,25,437 units against 96,989 units with a YoY growth of 29.3 per cent
In the Calendar Year 2021, Hyundai Motor India Limited had the Creta as its top-seller in the midsize SUV segment. The five-seater recorded a total of 1,25,437 unit sales last year as against 96,989 units during the same twelve-month period in 2020 with a YoY volume increase of 29.3 per cent. Its Kia cousin, the Seltos, finished second.
The Seltos garnered a cumulative domestic tally of 98,187 units in CY 2021 as against 96,932 units in the previous year of 2020 with a YoY positive sales growth of 1 per cent. The Mahindra Scorpio was rewarded for its consistency with the third position as 36,945 unit sales were registered against 31,240 units in CY 2020.
This led to a YoY positive volume increase of 18.2 per cent. Capitalising on its popularity, Mahindra is all set to introduce a new generation Scorpio this year with a raft of revisions inside and out, and it will likely be powered by a 2.2-litre diesel and a 2.0-litre turbo petrol in a similar fashion to the XUV700 but in different states of tune.
