Hyundai Creta posted a domestic tally of 12,463 units in April 2021 as it headed the mid-size SUV segment ahead of Kia Seltos and Mahindra Scorpio
The mid-size SUV and compact SUV segments are the hot commodities in the domestic market due to their huge popularity. Car manufacturers have certainly realised their importance over the last three years and consequently, we have seen new models entering both the spaces in a regular manner, as they aim to make the most out of them.
Hyundai has emerged as the most prominent UV seller in recent years courtesy of the Creta and Venue. The former gained a brand new generation early last year and it has really helped in getting back to the top of the sales charts ahead of Kia Seltos. The five-seater has stayed there ever since and even posted the best-selling numbers across the SUV segment as a whole.
Last month was no different, as the Hyundai Creta finished April 2021 as the most sold SUV in the country. It registered a total of 12,463 units to top the mid-size SUV sales table ahead of Kia Seltos, which recorded 8,086 unit sales. The Scorpio has been a stellar performer for Mahindra due to its consistency and it finished third with 3,577 units.
