The drop in monthly sales for some of the main contenders led to an overall decline in sales for the segment

With eight models on sale, the compact SUV segment is one of the most hotly contested spaces. The segment will soon get two new additions, in the form of Toyota and Maruti’s strong hybrid AWD compact SUVs. The Hyundai Creta continues to lead the pack despite a drop in month-on-month (MoM) demand while the MG Astor had the biggest monthly gains for the month.
