Top 10 selling SUVs in June 2017 saw Maruti Vitara Brezza maintaining its top position ahead of Hyundai Creta and Mahindra Bolero
The latest trend in buying family-based spacious utility vehicles in the Indian market has paved the path for some exciting products in the last few years. The Vitara Brezza, launched in 2016, went all guns blazing and quickly overtook Ford EcoSport in the sub-four metre SUV segment before getting the better of Creta and becoming the bestselling UV.
It has pursued its momentum in June 2017 as 8,293 units were sold. It is almost two thousand examples more than what Creta had managed as the battle between them has taken huge leaps. Coming in at third was Bolero which had a sub-four version being introduced recently. It recorded 6,290 units and led the way for the largest SUV manufacturer in the country last month.
|Top 10 Selling SUVs in June 2017|
|1. Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza||8,293|
|2. Hyundai Creta||6,436|
|3. Mahindra Bolero||6,290|

|9. Mahindra XUV 500||1,598|
|10. Renault Duster||1,233|
At fourth was the Honda WR-V as 4,243 deliveries were made. The Jazz-based crossover looks appealing and has the ingredients for scaling new heights in the Japanese brand’s range. Ford’s highlighting SUV in the market, the EcoSport, is a global hit and it was no different in India.
It set the initial benchmark in the subcompact SUV space and continues to impress despite fierce competition as last month saw 3,313 units being sent off the showrooms across the country. Underlining the popularity of sub-4m SUV segment, Mahindra TUV300 ended up in seventh position with 2,121 units.
The flagship XUV500 registered sales of 1,598 examples to finish ninth ahead of Renault Duster and it faces good competition from the Tata Hexa. Maruti’s S-Cross had a roller-coaster ride last year and last month saw a huge dip in sales as the products from Nexa premium showrooms struggled compared to the previous month.
Mahindra seems to be preparing facelifts for the TUV300 and the evergreen Scorpio while the Innova rivaling U231 and Scorpio facelift have already been spotted testing several times. Moreover, a facelift of the XUV500 was reported to be launched this year as well.
