The Kia Seltos and Nissan Kicks are the only SUVs to witness a positive growth when their year-on-year market share is considered

Hyundai Creta vs rivals

The compact SUV segment has been dominated by the Kia Seltos from the time it was introduced in our market. Though total car sales have been comparatively low in May when compared to previous months, a majority of the carmakers managed to ship over 100 units of their SUVs. The segment recently saw the reintroduction of the Hyundai Creta with new powertrain options and an updated feature list. It also recently witnessed the introduction of the Kicks BS6 with the most powerful engine (new 1.3-litre turbo-petrol) of the lot. Let’s take a look at how each SUV fared in May 2020:

Mahindra Scorpio

  • Mahindra shipped 700-odd units of the Scorpio in May. Its year-on-year market share went down by almost 11 per cent.

Renault Duster

  • The Duster’s market share of over 2 per cent can be attributed to the 100-odd units shipped by Renault. Renault will be introducing the Duster’s Turbo variant soon.

Nissan Kicks

  • Nissan is the only brand to ship less than 100 units of its SUV. The Kicks has the least market share of 1.28 per cent.

Maruti Suzuki S-Cross petrol

  • The Maruti S-Cross and Renault Captur are yet to be upgraded to BS6 standards. The BS6 versions of both models are expected to be launched in the coming weeks.
