Top 10 SUVs Sold In Nov 2019 – Kia Seltos Leads The Segment


Kia Seltos led the SUV segment ahead of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Hyundai Venue in the month of November 2019

Kia Motors India Limited has been on a roll since making its domestic debut back in August 2019 courtesy of the Seltos. The mid-size SUV started out well in its launch month as 6,236 units were sold and it was followed up by 7,754 units in September before nearly doubling its sales to 12,654 units in October and garnered a massive 4.5 per cent market share.

The South Korean auto major finished fifth overall ahead of Toyota, Honda, Renault and Ford in October 2019. The same trend continued last month as the Seltos finished as the most sold SUV in the country as it registered a total of 14,005 units. Compared to the second-placed Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the Seltos posted nearly 2,000 more units.

The Seltos’ dominance is expected to continue in the coming months and it should be borne in mind that the five-seater is already BSVI compliant. The SUV helped push Kia up the standings to fourth among the manufacturers’ sales table with 5.3 per cent market share. Despite recording 16 per cent YoY decline, the Vitara Brezza continued to stay ahead of its main rival Hyundai Venue in November 2019.
