Despite experiencing a decline of around 5 percent in MoM sales and 6 percent in year-on-year (YoY) market share, the brand still managed to sell around more than its average sales over the last six months.

  • The Maruti Grand Vitara stays well ahead of the Kia Seltos as the second-best-selling compact SUV car in May 2024 with over 9,700 unit sales. The automaker registered the second-highest MoM growth in this list of more than 27 percent while the YoY market share has dropped by nearly 2 percent. 

Kia Seltos

  • Holding on to the final podium spot on this list, the Kia Seltos witnessed a steady demand for May 2024 with more than 6,700 units sold. However, the carmaker recorded the highest YoY market share increase of over 4.7 percent.

  • The Toyota Hyryder, the platform sibling of the Grand Vitara, found close to 3,900 buyers in May 2024. It also enjoyed a 20 percent MoM growth in demand, but its market share remained stable and the sales from the previous month were still lower than the average demand for the past six months.

Volkswagen Taigun

  • The Volkswagen Taigun also managed to cross the 1,500 units mark, outselling the Elevate by 11 units even. However, this compact SUV also witnessed a MoM decline in sales of around 11 percent while the YoY market share reduced by nearly 0.5 percent.

  • It seems demand for the Honda Elevate continues to decline as it witnessed a 10 percent drop in MoM sales with just over 1,500 units. In terms of average sales of the past six months, the Japanese compact SUV fell short by over 2,000 units in May 2024.

  • While demand for the Skoda Kushaq remained somewhat stable, its sales remained below the 1,200 unit mark as its YoY market share has almost halved.
