Takeaways

Hyundai Creta

  • With over 12,500 units sold, the Hyundai Creta cemented its first position once again following July sales. It was the only SUV here to cross the 10,000-unit sales mark and had a market share of almost 40 percent.

  • The Kia Seltos followed its Hyundai cousin, but couldn’t breach the five-digit figure. With more than 8,600-units sold, it still managed to better its average six-month sales.

  • Mahindra resurrected the previous iteration of the Scorpio as the ‘Scorpio Classic’ in August 2022 with new features and cosmetic enhancements. This provided a fillip to the SUV’s month-on-month (MoM) figure–which went up by over 85 percent–the highest among all models here and even led to total sales of more than 7,000 units.

Skoda Kushaq

  • The Mahindra SUV was followed by the Skoda Kushaq with nearly 2,000 unit sales. However, its year-on-year (YoY) market share dropped by a little over four percent.

  • MG’s compact SUV, the Astor, slotted between the German duo. Its MoM figure went down by almost three percent but the YoY market share saw no difference.

Volkswagen Taigun

  • With a reduction of nearly 28 percent in MoM number, the Volkswagen Taigun witnessed the highest drop over the previous month. The carmaker shipped 1,000-odd units of the SUV in August.

  • The Nissan Kicks was the only compact SUV here to not clear the triple-digit sales mark. Its market share stood at less than one percent.

  • Maruti and Toyota have also got their dibs on strong-hybrid powertrain in the compact SUV space with the upcoming Grand Vitara and Urban Cruiser Hyryder, respectively.
