The table of top 10 selling SUVs in September 2018 saw Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Hyundai Creta leading the way comfortably ahead of others
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) has the Vitara Brezza leading the monthly SUV sales charts for long and September 2018 made no difference in it. The subcompact SUV received quite a few updates this year and they seem to have been well-received among customers as it continues to maintain its steady run in the domestic market.
Same can be said for the Hyundai Creta as the top-selling compact premium SUV registered a total of 11,000 units last months – 3,425 units adrift of the Vitara Brezza. With Tata Harrier launching in early 2019 and Kia’s SP concept based SUV is coming into play during the second half of 2019, Creta will face increased rivals.
|S.No||Top 10 Selling SUVs In September 2018||No. Of Units Sold|
|1.||Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza||14,425|
|6.||Maruti Suzuki S-Cross||3,005|
Talks of second generation Creta has already been running around the interweb as it will reportedly get option of seven-seat configuration, heavily upgraded exterior in line with global standards and increased features to expand the range to rival Jeep Compass. This will likely lead to the next generation Tucson being pushed higher up the order further as well.
With regular promotions and recent limited edition, Tata’s Nexon appear to have been enduring strong sales. The VFM price tag and fuel-efficient diesel engine with multiple driving modes meant the Nexon sees very good popularity throughout this year and 4,297 deliveries were made in September 2018.
Mahindra’s long running workhorse, Scorpio, finished fourth last month with 3,941 units and it managed to pip Ford EcoSport by just 152 units. Since the launch of facelift late last year, the S-Cross has been registering consistent sales and September 2018 was no different as 3,005 units were sold.
In the bottom half of the table, the S-Cross was followed by Honda’s WR-V, Mahindra XUV500, Toyota Fortuner and Jeep Compass respectively. The Compass is the lonely sales driver for FCA in India and it definitely needs a company for future sustainability.
