Hyundai Creta was the most sold SUV in India in June 2023 as it finished ahead of Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue and Tata Punch
Courtesy of the consistent expansion in the SUV space, Maruti Suzuki’s market share in the segment has certainly improved in recent times and it reflects on the sales charts as well. Maruti Suzuki was the only manufacturer to have three SUVs featured in the top ten SUV sales table for the month of June 2023.
The Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Grand Vitara and Fronx were amongst the top ten finishers and also contributed to nearly one-fourth of the total volume sales last month. The Hyundai Creta led the way ahead of Tata Nexon with a domestic tally of 14,447 units as against 13,790 units in June 2022 with a YoY positive growth of 5 per cent.
The second largest car producer in the country is currently working on the heavily updated Creta and it will go on sale early next year. Tata’s best-selling car in India, the Nexon, posted 13,827 units last month as against 14,295 units with a YoY de-growth of 3 per cent. The Hyundai Venue finished in the third position with 11,606 units against 10,321 units.
