Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza posted 1,10,641 units as against 1,57,880 units with 30 per cent sales decline last FY
Maruti Suzuki’s Vitara Brezza was the most sold compact SUV in the Financial Year 2019-20. The period between April 2019 and March 2020 saw the compact SUV garnering a total of 1,10,641 units with 30 per cent sales decline. The second-placed Venue had certainly eaten into the Brezza’s sales since its debut in May 2019.
The Venue impressed with a total of 93,624 units and beat the Vitara Brezza quite a few months since its market entry. Its bigger sibling, the Creta, ended up third with a total of 82,074 units as against 1,24,300 units with 34 per cent drop in FY2020. The mid-size SUV had been under heat from Kia Seltos since its launch in August 2019.
The Seltos took over the lead from Creta in monthly sales table and it explained why the Creta faced huge volume decline. With 81,984 units, the Seltos continued to impress last FY and its popularity does not seem to be decreasing. It embarks in a close fight with the second-gen Hyundai Creta and it will be interesting to see how it pans out this fiscal.
