Only the Hyundai Creta managed to cross the 10,000-unit mark in Diwali

The compact SUV segment is a popular space but it is not as contested as the sub-4m SUV segment. Most of the demand comes from the Korean siblings, the second-gen Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos, both of which arrived in successive years. Except for the Hyundai Creta and Mahindra Scorpio, all other compact SUVs registered positive growth in their month-on-month (MoM) figures. Here’s how each SUV performed in November 2020:
